        This Intro is played once then along with the chorus


[Chorus]

               Am        G            C         F
        You'll have to excuse me, I'm not at my best
                  C          G
        I've been gone for a month
                                C
        I've been drunk since I left
              Am          G
        These so called vacations
             C          F
        Will soon be my death
               C             G
        I'm so sick from the drink
                          C
        I need home for a rest ...


  Then it breaks into a verse with fast paced chords:


[Verse]

           Am           G          C          F
        We arrived in December and London was cold
              C             G
        So we stayed in the bars
              C             G
        Along Charing Cross Road
           Am        G           C              F
        We never saw nothin' but brass taps and oak
                 C            G
        Kept the shine on the bar
                 C              G
        With the sleeves of our coats


[Chorus]

               G                      C         G
        You'll have to excuse me, I'm not at my best
                  C          F
        I've been gone for a week
                  C             G
        I've been drunk since I left
              G
        These so-called vacations
             C          G
        Will soon be my death
               C             F
        I'm so sick from the drink
               G          C
        I need home for a rest ...


[Verse 2]

   Euston Station the train journey north
   In the buffet car we lurched back and forth
   Past odd crooked dykes
   Through Yorkshire's green fields
   We were flung into dance
   As the train jigged and reeled


[Chorus]

               G                      C         G
        You'll have to excuse me, I'm not at my best
                  C          F
        I've been gone for a week
                  C             G
        I've been drunk since I left
              G
        These so-called vacations
             C          G
        Will soon be my death
               C             F
        I'm so sick from the drink
               G          C
        I need home for a rest ...


[Verse 3]

   By the light of the moon she'd drift through the streets
   A rare old perfume so seductive and sweet
   She'd tease us and flirt as the pubs all closed down
   Then walk us on home and deny us a round


[Chorus]

               G                      C         G
        You'll have to excuse me, I'm not at my best
                  C          F
        I've been gone for a week
                  C             G
        I've been drunk since I left
              G
        These so-called vacations
             C          G
        Will soon be my death
               C             F
        I'm so sick from the drink
               G          C
        I need home for a rest ...


[Verse 4]

   The gas heater's empty, it's damp as a tomb
   And the spirits we drank like a ghost in the room
   I'm knackered again, come on sleep take me soon
   And don't lift up my head
   'till the twelve bells at noon


[Chorus]

               G                      C         G
        You'll have to excuse me, I'm not at my best
                  C          F
        I've been gone for a week
                  C             G
        I've been drunk since I left
              G
        These so-called vacations
             C          G
        Will soon be my death
               C             F
        I'm so sick from the drink
               G          C
        I need home for a rest ...

one part you left out is the way that you strum the chords, it's a simple gaelic picking, you hit the bass note on an 8th then you hit the three treble strings twice on 16th notes. i'm not sure on the beats per minute and all, or even the time signature but someone else can figure that out.

Wrong intro, wrong chords at parts.
