This is my favourite song from Ruarri Joseph's debut album 'Tales of Grime 
and Grit'. It is also deliciously simple, so it is easy to master!.

Intro: C C6 C C C6 C

Verse (1):

C
I know there's a party out there,
              F
Somewhere for crashers and burners to let down their hair,
    G
The red eye reduction is failing production,
    C
There's smoke shadows everywhere.
    C
I could go along for a while,
               F
And talk to my friends and their friends and their friends and that smile,
     G
It's not that I'm better, or cooler, or clever,
     C                     C7
In fact I'm a geek without style.

Chorus:

    F
The ashtrays are empty, there's shandies aplenty,
  G                        Am
I wish I was more rock and roll.
       G 
But my eyes are adrift as my mind wanders off, 
       F                     C
Into visions of blankets and coal.
     F                                                     G
The sun sets for reasons it's tired and it's pleasing itself,
               Am
What an ideal life.
      G                
I may look the part but I know in my heart,
         F                       C
That I'd rather be home with the wife.

Verse (2):

    C
The girls hang on necks of the boys,
                 F
The boys act all coy with their beer and their cigarettes of joy,
   G
It takes me way back to a time when I'd stay when I'm young,
                  C
And that was just yesterday.
        C
There's nothing wrong with the affair,
                  F
It's just that my hair is all tangled in need of repair,
   G
I may get some glasses and sell backstage passes
    C                           C7
To those who can deal with the noise.

Chorus

Bridge: 

C                F                     C
La la la lai la lai, la la lai lai la lai,
                G                      C
La la la lai la lai, la la lai lai la lai.
                F                      G
La la la lai la lai, la la lai lai la lai,
                Am
La la la lai la lai,

Chorus: 

      G
Oh I may look the part but I know in my heart 
         F                       C 
That I'd rather be home with the wife.

Bridge: 

                  F                                           G
La la la lai lai lai, la la lai, la la lai lai, la la la lai lai,
                  Am
La la lai lai lai lai,

Chorus: 

     G
Oh I may look the part but I know in my heart
          F                        C
That I'd rather be home with the wife. x3
