Intro: E  C#m  A  B

      E                              C#m
From Northernden to Partington it's rain
      A                             B
From Altrincham to Chadderton it's rain
      E                           C#m
From Moss Side to Swinton hardly Spain
       A                                    B
It's a picture postcard of 'wish they never came'

                 A                                   E
And whilst that deckchair in the garden it makes no sense
    B                                 E
It doesn't spoil the view or cause offence
       A                      E
Those Floridas, Bavarias and Kents
      B                                    E
Make gentlemen wear shorts but don't make gents

      E
So convertibles stay garage-bound
     C#m
Save after-sun for later
   A
If rain makes Britain great
     B
Then Manchester is greater
       E
As you dry your clothes once again
  C#m
Upon the radiator
A
What makes Britain great
      B
Makes Manchester yet greater

E  C#m  A  B

     E                                C#m
From Cheetham Hill to Wytenshawe it's rain
A                                     B
Gorton, Salford, Sale pretty much the same
       E                             C#m
As I'm caught without my jacket once again
    A                                   B
The raindrops on my face play a sweet refain

       A                           E
And as winter turns reluctantly to spring
        B                                      E
For the clouds above the city there's one last fling
A                                     E
Swallows build their nests, chaffinch sing
        B                                    E
And the sun strolls into town like long lost king

      E
So convertibles stay garage-bound
     C#m
Save after-sun for later
   A
If rain makes Britain great
     B
Then Manchester is greater
       E
As you dry your clothes once again
  C#m
Upon the radiator
A
What makes Britain great
      B
Makes Manchester yet greater

        A                                  E
And the mood of this whole sodden place is melancholy
         B                                       E
Like the sun came out to play, shone through the clouds but dropped its lolly
    A                               E
And everyone looks so disappointed, so, so sorry
         B                                  E
Like the rain blew into town, kidnapped the sun and stole it's brolly

A  B  E

      E
So convertibles stay garage-bound
     C#m
Save after-sun for later
   A
If rain makes Britain great
     B
Then Manchester is greater
       E
As you dry your clothes once again
  C#m
Upon the radiator
A
What makes Britain great
      B
Makes Manchester yet greater
