The other tabs for this song are terrible.  I'm too lazy to tab the lead guitar (it's not
very hard to figure out anyway) so here are the chords.

G C Bm Am (x2)

G      C               Bm     Am
We met when we were in school
G             C               Bm           Am
Never took no shit from no one, we weren't fools
    Am                 G
The teacher says we're dumb
      G           Em
We're only having fun
   Em           C
We piss on everyone
       G        C Bm Am
In the classroom

G C Bm Am

When we got thrown out i left without much fuss
An' weekends we'd go dancing
Down streatham on the bus
You always made me laugh
Got me in bad fights
Play me pool all night
Smokin' menthol

G C Bm Am

I practised daily in my room
You were down the crown planning your next move
Go on a nicking spree
Hit the wrong guy
Each of you get three
Years in brixton

G C Bm Am

I did my very best to write
How was butlins?
Were the screws too tight?
When you lot get out
Were gonna hit the town
We'll burn it fuckin' down
To a cinder

G C Bm Am

    Bm                    Em
Cos years have passed and things have changed
      C                   D
And I move anyway I wanna go
     Bm               Em
I'll never forget the feeling I got
       C                    G
When I heard that you'd got home
         Bm               Em
And I'll never forget the smile on my face
       C                    D
'cos i knew where you would be
    Bm               Em
And if you're in the crowd tonight
C               G
Have a drink on me

But go easy
step lightly
stay free

G C Bm Am (until end)

I love it. Good job. This is one of my favorite songs ever. I think I love it more now that 20 years has past since I first heard it and it REALLY means something to mean. Thanks so much for sharing it.

Ok, so I have been around guitars most of my life(even had a few) and untill recently I never SERIOUSLY tried to play. Even as unskilled as I am I still love playing this song. Im actually almost able to play it at the correct speed. That darn Bm is the one I have trouble fretting right, right at the moment. Thanks again
