The Blues Are Still Blue

tuning: standard

Credit goes to galateastilston tab and the comments submitted there mostly.
I figured I´d make the correction and change some extra things that sound a bit better to me.

You should listen to the song to know when the B and F# full barre chords are played, but usually it's only
after the D#m and A#m chords.

Intro: B  F#  B  F#  (2x)

B                       F#
Look at the kid from school
               B                      F#
He’s teaching mamas and papas how to be a little cool
              B                    F#
He’s changing fashion, the way he dress
    B                             F#
The tracksuits are old, and the hoody’s way too moody
       D#m          A#m
For a kid with the will to funk
    B        F#              C#
He dances in secret; he’s a part-time punk

B                      F#
She’s getting off the plane
               B                      F#
She wants to write a thesis on the population underprivileged
     B                   F#
The kids fighting up the lane
      B
Shop lifting, just drifting
          F#
Like The Switchblade And The Cross
                 D#m                 A#m
But if there’s trouble she’s got the moves
       B           F#         C#
She’s taking an elementary class in Kung fu

   B                    F#
I left my washing in the launderette
         B                             F#
You can put some money on it, you can place a little bet
           B
That when I see my washing
     D#m           A#m           B              F#
The black will be grey and the white will be grey
          C#
But the blues are still blue

B                      F#
I’m crying out for my mum
         B                         F#
If the malady don’t go away we’re in a little trouble
       B                F#
With the boss of the company
      B                       F#
I’m a singer, a swinger I’m a layabout but laying on
   D#m            A#m
The dock in the lazy sun
     B             F#       C#
Will never quite relegate me to a bum

   B                    F#
I left my lady in the launderette
         B                             F#
You can put some money on it, you can place a little bet
           B
That when I see my lady
     D#m           A#m            B              F#
The black will be white and the white will be black
          C#
But the blues are still blue

Base do solo:
B - C#
B - F# - B -  F#  - B
D#m - A#m - B - F# - C#

B                 F#
Baby, I love your face
            B
I’ve been creeping round this town because…
        F#
Well, creeping’s just my way
           B                   F#
But with a little wink I’ll be there
          B                             F#
I’ll be excited for a week, but then excitement starts to fade
            D#m                 A#m
I know your young, but you’re out of touch
       B              F#         C#
You’re French, your vocabulary’s not quite formed

   B                       F#
I left my homework in the launderette
        B                              F#
I got a letter from my mamma which my stupid dog has ate
              B
I hid behind the fence
               D#m     A#m             B        F#
Here comes the deputy head with the bark of a bulldog
         C#
He’s not making much sense

   B                 F#
I left my lady in the launderette
         B                             F#
You can put some money on it, you can place a little bet
           B
That when I see my lady
     D#m           A#m            B              F#
The black will be white and the white will be black
          C#
But the blues are still blue
