The Proclaimers - Throw the 'R' Away from their first album "This is the Story"
By Doom Drew

NOTE: I learned this purely by listening so I would appreciate any corrections that may 
be appropriate.
Also there is one particular chord which I (using online chord identifier) identified as 
Emaj7sus4.
The chord looks like this...  It is much simpler than the name suggests.
e|----------|
B|----------|
G|--2-------|
D|--1-------|
A|--2-------|
E|----------|

Capo 4

Intro      E  A  E  Emaj7sus4  (x2)

E            A
I've been so sad
      Am                     E
Since you said my accent was bad
E               A            Am         E
He's wearin' a frown   This Caledonian clown


    E                              A
I'm just going to have to learn to hesitate
   Am           Am7              Emaj7sus4       E
To make sure my words    On your Saxon ears don't grate
    E                        A
But I wouldn't know a single word to say
     Am                Am7          Emaj7sus4    E
If I flattened all the vowels   And threw the 'R' away


Some days I stand
On your green and pleasant land
How dare I show face
When my diction is such a disgrace

I'm just going to have to learn to hesitate
To make sure my words
On your Saxon ears don't grate
But I wouldn't know a single word to say
If I flattened all the vowels
And threw the 'R' away

E               E7
You say that if I want to get ahead
A              Am7
The language I use should be left for dead
E          Emaj7sus4  E
It doesn't please your ear
E              E7
And though you tell it like a leg-pull
A               Am7
It seems you're still full of John Bull
E        Emaj7sus4      E
You just refuse       to hear

Oh what can I do
To be understood by you
Perhaps for some money
I could talk like a bee dripping honey.

I'm just going to have to learn to hesitate
To make sure my words
On your Saxon ears don't grate
But I wouldn't know a single word to say
If I flattened all the vowels
And threw the 'R' away

You say that if I want to get ahead
The language I use should be left for dead
It doesn't please your ear
And though you tell it like a leg-pull
I think you're still full of John Bull
You just refuse to hear

He's been so sad
Since you said his accent was bad
He's wearin' a frown
This Caledonian clown

I'm just going to have to learn to hesitate
To make sure my words
On your Saxon ears don't grate
But I wouldn't know a single word to say
If I flattened all the vowels
And threw the 'R' away
Flattened all the vowels
And threw the 'R' away
If I flattened all the vowels
And threw the 'R' away

This is fantastic! Thanks so much dude - Almost perfect! Only thing I'd mention is the second time round in the intro it goes E, E7, A, E, E7 Emaj7sus4

Thanks for discovering that magic chord! So glad I can play this! Thanks buddy

Sounds great! Try the refrain without Am7. Just keep A one beet longer like this.

E A

just doesn't sound right when I play it and looking at the proclaimers playing it live they have a capo on the 4th fret
