Piccadilly (Difford/Tilbrook)


[Intro]
 A   D     8x


[Verse]
A           D        E               A 
She's not a picture above somebody's fire
D              Bm           G           C
She sits in a towel with a purple hair dryer,
 F               E
She waits to get even with me
    A            D            E           A
She hooks up her cupcakes and puts on her jumper
D                    Bm           G        C
Explains that she'll be late to a worrying mother,
F               E
She meets me in Piccadilly


[Verse]
  C            F             C           F
A begging folk singer stands tall by the entrance
    C           F         C         F
His song relays worlds of most good intentions,
  D        G            D          G       D G | D G
A five p a ten p in his hat for collection
    A           D          A           D
She talks about office she talks about dresses
      A            D           A          D
She's seen one she fancies her smile is impressing,
D      A      G     A   G
So maybe I'll treat her someday


[Verse]
    A           D            A             D
We queue among strangers and strange conversation
A             D       A              D
Love's on the lips of all forms of engagements,
D      A       G     A       G
All queuing to see tonight's play
  C          F        C            F
A man behind me talks to his young lady
     C          F        C           F
He's happy that she is expecting his baby,
    D             G           D         G                D G | D G
His wife won't be pleased but she's not been round lately


[Verse]
A               D           E         A
The girl was so dreadful we left in a hurry
D              Bm          G      C
Escaped in the rain for an Indian curry,
F                 E
At the candle lit Taj Mahal
   A         D        E            A
My lips to a napkin I called for a taxi
    D         Bm           G           C
The invite of eyes made it tense but relaxed me,
F              E
My mind took a devious stroll


[Verse]
C               F              C             F
The cab took us home through a night I'd not noticed
C              F              C               F
The neon club lights of adult films and Trini Lopez,
D      G               D         G           D G | D G
My arm around love but my acting was hopeless
    A             D                A             D
We crept like two thieves from the kettle to the fire
   A             D            A                 D
We kissed to the sound of the silence that we'd hired,
D      A           G       A  G
Now captured, your love in my arms


[Verse]
  A           D          A              D
A door open'd slightly a voice spoke in worry
A           D           A           D
Mum went to bed without wind of the curry,
D      A    G           A   G
Our secret love made it's advance


[Verse]
C             F           C           F
Like Adam and Eve we took bite on the apple
C                  F         C          F
Loose change in my pocket it started to rattle,

[Chorus]
D            G            D       G
Heart like a gun was just half of the battle
 D            G            D       G
(Heart like a gun was just half of the battle)
     D        G           D           G
Like Adam and Eve we took bite on the apple
 D            G            D       G
(Heart like a gun was just half of the battle)
D                  G         D          G
Loose change in my pocket it started to rattle,
 D            G            D       G
(Heart like a gun was just half of the battle)
D            G            D       G
Heart like a gun was just half of the battle
 D            G            D       G
(Heart like a gun was just half of the battle)
     D        G           D           G
Like Adam and Eve we took bite on the apple
 D            G            D       G
(Heart like a gun was just half of the battle)
D                  G         D          G
Loose change in my pocket it started to rattle,
 D            G            D       G
(Heart like a gun was just half of the battle)
D            G            D       G
Heart like a gun was just half of the battle
D            G            D       G
Heart like a gun was just half of the battle

[Outro]
D A G A G
