Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Hey everybody, i saw a few sets of chords for this song, but i found that you can use 
easier chords if you just capo it at the second fret. All chords are relative to the capo.

Note: the Bm chord in the verse is optional. It is played by the piano to lead into the 
A chord.

Basic Chord Changes:

Verse - A D Bm A F#m A E

Chorus - D A F#m E (x2)

Bridge and Ending don't really follow a pattern


SOVEREIGN LIGHT CAFE - KEANE
CAPO II

VERSE 1

           A
I'm going back to a time when we owned this town
  A    D
Down Powder Mill Lane, in the Battlegrounds
Bm        A                     F#m  A     E
We were friends and lovers and clue-less clowns

VERSE 2
                      A
I didn't know I was finding out how I'd be torn from you
  A       D
When we talked about things we were gonna do
Bm        A                   F#m  A   E
We were wide-eyed dreamers and wi-ser too

CHORUS
                     D              A
We'd go down to the rides on East Parade
        F#m                   E
By the lights of the Palace Arcade
                        D            A        F#m    E
And watch night coming down on the Sovereign Light Cafe

VERSE 3
                          A
I'm begging you for some sign but you still got nothing to say
 A     D
Don't turn your back on me, don't walk away
Bm      A                   F#m  A    E
I'm a better man now than i was that day

CHORUS
                      D              A
Let's go down to the rides on East Parade
        F#m                   E
By the lights of the Palace Arcade
                        D            A        F#m    E
And watch night coming down on the Sovereign Light Cafe
                       D               A
Let's go down to the bandstand on the pier
           F#m                    E
Watch the drunks and the lovers appear
                      D             A        F#m    E
To take turns as the stars at the Sovereign Light Cafe

BRIDGE
    D   F#m  A             E
I wheel my  bike off the train
        E
Up the North Trade Road
     D   F#m  A             E
And look for you in Marley Lane
                               F#m
In every building, in every streetsign
                 D                E    F#m A E
Oh why'd we ever go, so far from home?

VERSE 4
                            A
Well you've got nothing to hide, you can't change who you really are
 A       D
You can get a big house and a faster car
Bm       A                    F#m   A   E
You can run away boy, but you won't go far

CHORUS
                      D              A
Let's go down to the rides on East Parade
        F#m                   E
By the lights of the Palace Arcade
                        D            A        F#m    E
And watch night coming down on the Sovereign Light Cafe
                       D               A
Let's go down to the bandstand on the pier
           F#m                    E
Watch the drunks and the lovers appear
                      D             A        F#m    E
To take turns as the stars at the Sovereign Light Cafe

ENDING
       D               A
Sha la la la la la di day
F#m
Yeah!
     E                      D       A    E
I'm going where the people know my name

D A F#m E
D A F#m E A
