Strange Town by The Jam

Intro
G5, G5, G5, G5

Verse 1
C                       Am7
  Found myself in a strange town
F                         G
  Though I've only been here for 3 weeks now
C                        Am7
  I've got blisters on my  feet
F                            G
  Trying to find a friend in Oxford Street
C                      Am7
  I bought an A to Z guide book
F                              G
  Trying to find the clubs and YMCA's
C                          Am7
  But when you ask in a strange town
F                                       G
  They say "Don't know, don't care and I got to go mate" 

Chorus
     F                      Gsus4   G
They worry themselves about feeling low     
     F                          Gsus4      G
They worry themselves about the dreadful snow     
     F                 Gsus4        G
They all ignore me coz they don't know     
    F                               G6
I'm really a spaceman from those UFO's


Verse 2
C                          Am7
You gotta to move in a straight line
F                              G
  You gotta to walk and talk in  four four time
C                             Am7
  You can't be wierd in a strange town
F                            G
  You'll be betrayed by your accent and manners
C                         Am7
  You gotta to wear the right clothes
F                           G
  Be careful not to pick or scratch your nose
C                            Am7
  You can't be nice in a strange town
F                                      G
  "Coz we don't know , don't care, and we got to go mate"

Chorus
F                    Gsus4     G
Rush my money to the record shops
  F                                Gsus4    G
I stop off in a back street, buy myself a snort
           F                    Gsus4      G
We got our own manifesto, to be kind to queers
    F                          G6
I'm oh so glad the revolutions here.
G5

     Dm7                               G7

      Dm7                   G7
Coz I don't see a face in a single crowd,
       E
Theres no one there  
  Dm7                      G7
I look in the mirror but I can't be seen       
       Dm7                 G7        G            
Just a thin green layer of Mister Sheen

Great cheers, I don't play the D6, normal D works just fine.
