Strawbs - The Man Who Would Never Leave Grimsby


CAPO: 2nd Fret



[Intro]
Dm7  G  Dm7  G  Dm7  G  Dm7  G  F  Bb  Eb  Dm7 G

[Verse 1]
      Am                         C           Dm
I was told about a man who would never leave Grimsby
         F   C     Dm
And that may sound strange
        Am                              C               Dm
But his heart was in that town with his friends and his family
       F    C   Am
But to make him leave 
         F    C Dm
Would be pain indeed


[Verse 2]
       Am                                  C        Dm
Now he could have toured the world, he was highly respected
       F    C   Dm
But to make him go
         Am                        C           Dm
Would be ripping out his heart and leaving him restless
      F   C   Am
So to see him play
       F    C  G
Go the Grimsby way


[Chorus]
          Dm7               C       F                    D
‘Cause he has a little love, but he gives a lot of love
           G               F   Em  G
It doesn’t matter where he is
          Dm7              C        F                   D
If you’ve got a little love and you give a lot of love
           G                          F
It doesn’t matter where you are, it’s up to you
Em              G           Dm7  G  Dm7  G
You could be in Grimsby too


[Verse 3]
      Am                       C          Dm
Got a letter from a boy from a village in Kenya
       F    C Dm
He was such a fan
   Am                        C              Dm
So smitten by the band, they called him the Strawbs Boy 
         F    C   Am
And that made him proud
         F    C  Dm
He would play us loud


[Verse 4]
       Am                           C          Dm
In the letter Lucky wrote that he’d been to Nairobi
        F     C     Dm
Which I found quite sad
           Am                            C        Dm
Because he said he looked around, but he couldn’t see me
       F     C    Am
With a faith like that
      F    C  G
How I wish he had


[Chorus]
      Dm7              C       F                  D
Lucky had a little love and he gave a lot of love
       G               F   Em  G
Didn’t matter where he was
          Dm7              C        F                   D
If you’ve got a little love and you give a lot of love
           G                          F
It doesn’t matter where you are, it’s up to you
Em              G           Dm7  G 
You could be in Grimsby too


[Verse 4]
       Am                          C           Dm
If you ever meet the man who would never leave Grimsby
       F    C   Dm
Try to make him see
         Am                           C        Dm
That the home is in the heart and you carry it with you
        F C   Am
You may never leave
         F  C     G
And your spirit’s free


[Chorus]
          Dm7            C        F                  D
If you've got little love and you give a lot of love
        G                F   Em  G
Doesn’t matter where you are  
    Dm7               C        F                  D
So, take a little love and you give a lot of love
           G                          F
It doesn’t matter where you are, it’s up to you
Em              G           Dm7  Em  F  Dm  G  F  Em  G
You could be in Grimsby too
