Verse:

     G           D           Em             Em7

     1  &  2  &  3  &  4  &  1  &  2  &  3  &  4  &
                             I   was   born  on a close    street     down  a  hill   
        Mauve                     and  so did my hands                     Oh   and the

   1  &  2  &  3  &  4  &  1  &  2  &  3  &  4  &
       The trees that lined the street could sense the winter   change they felt the
     Sound…                           There  was  no sound and I’m freezing in  the   


   Em             Em7      C           B/C

   1  &  2  &  3  &  4  &  1  &  2  &  3  &  4  &
     chill         they ducked and dived and  so   we knew that they were alive  
     sun       Nobody   cares  to  hide        the dopeheads and the suicides

        Cause  everyone  freezes    in  the       sun

Verse 2:

Basically, the same structure of the first verse, but the order of the chords is 
flipped. Each line below = 1 bar

   Em            Em7         
        I kicked around with

   C                    B/C             
   Harry who lived near Salisbury Plain

   F
     He worked on the cathedral there 

   C              B/C
   every now and again he worked with 

   G             D
   stone,        carved with stone 

   Em                     Em7
     Odd jobs on the telephone 

   F                                
    One sunny day he was sent to the 

   C         B/C
   Houses of Parliament

   Em                 Em7  
     chippin' away at gargoyles 

   C         B/C
   Under the blistering sun 

   F                                   
   He carved out "Maggie Sucks" on the 

   C              B/C
   backs of every one

   G               D
   And so in five-hundred years

   Em                       Em7 
   There's gonna be some history here 

   F                            C
   After it all subsides in the sun 

Chorus:

Play the riff on the C chord from the end of the first verse 4X, and over the last 
two times through, sing:

   And it's fallin' away 

Verse: 

This one is the same chord changes from the first verse.

   G            D 
    Another day, another loon

   Em                 Em7 
    A new pied piper calls the 

   F
   Tune so blow it up, watch it explode 

   C             B/C
   Noah's ark on overload

   Em                  Em7
   Wrestle with the results and 

   C                   B/C
   throw 'em round the ring

   F
   Everybody knows there 

   C                 B/C
   ain't no rules in wrestling

   G          D  
          The referee's a dupe 

   Em                 Em7
    Who only old ladies and children be-

   F        
   -lieve, 

   C           B/C
   I'm getting up now to leave 

   Em                            Em7
   I'll go back to that street someday

   C                       B/C
    The air's better there anyway

   F                                              C  
   Though the trees are still gonna freeze in the sun 

Chorus/Outro:

Use the Riff from the first chorus, but on F where noted.

   And it's fallin' away 

                     F
   And I don't wanna know 

                    C
   I'm glad I don't know 

       G           D   Em
What's draggin' it un  der
