Verses 1 & 2:
There's a pub on the south side of town
Time stands still while there's still wine around
She's the one in the calico
The one who's always and never alone

Keep her glass full of cheap champagne
She will tell of a man with no name
Smoke and mirrors have done her in
She's in love and she won't be again

Did she let him go? 
Or did the four winds blow him away?
Does she even know?
She's the girl with the red balloon

So glad someone finally made a full tab for this. Sounds great, and very close to what John Paul plays, but I think the main riff goes like this.

You can hear a consistent one-two-three count on the lower three strings when John Paul plays it, so it's important to get that third note on the D string in there every time. Looks great other than that though!
