 Waterloo Sunset        (Ray Davies)

              D                    A                  G
1. Dirty old river, must you keep rolling, rolling into the night
              D                 A                   G
   People so busy make me feel dizzy, taxi lights shine so bright
          Em    B            Em7    A
   But i don't     need no friends
                 D                A               G       G B E
   As long as i gaze on Waterloo Sunset, i am in paradise
                 E7                       A       G B E
   Every day i look at the world from my window
                         E7             A7
   The chilly-chilliest evening time,  Waterloo sunset's fine.


2. Terry meets Julie, Waterloo Station, every Friday night
   But i am so lazy, don't want to wander, i stay at home at night
   But i don't feel afraid
   As long as i gaze on Waterloo Sunset, i am in paradise
   Every day i look at the world from my window   
   The chilly chilliest evening time,  Waterloo sunset's fine.

3. Millions of people swarming like flies round Waterloo underground
   Terry and Julie cross over the river where they feel safe and sound
   And they don't need no friends
   As long as they gaze on Waterloo Sunset, they are in paradise
   Every day i look at the world from my window   
   The chilly chilliest evening time,  Waterloo sunset's fine.

The first two rounds of D,A,G in the verses are fine as open chords but after the pre-chorus (But I don't need no friends)take the A as a bar-chord on the 5th fret. Then go to D as a bar-chord on the 5th, back to A and then G as a bar-chord on the 3rd fret, this puts your hand in a better position to do the signature G,B,E chord-run and gives you a nice little run-down from the D which reflects the bass-run in the intro. Enjoy!
