Verse 1:

  E      Bm           A             C#m
  And in to the sea  goes pretty Eng land and me
  C                 Bm                E
  Around the Bay of  Biscay and  back for tea
  E                       Bm
  Hitting traffic on the  dogger bank
  A                       C#m
  Up the Thames to find a  taxi rank
  C                    Bm         E
  Sail on by with the  tide and  fall asleep

(When ending every verse on the E chord, play it like so...)



and the radio says...
  E          D    E               Am
  This is a  low... but it won't  hurt you

  E             D     E              Am   Bm
  When you're a lon e...it will be  there when  you
  C                Bm      E
  Finding ways to  stay so lo

Verse 2:

  E                     Bm
  On the tyne, forth and  cromarty
  A                    C#m
  There's a low in the  high 40's
  C                       Bm
(and)  Saturday's locked a way on the pier
Not  fast enough dear
  E       Bm           A                C#m
  On the  malin head,  blackpool looks  blue and red
  C                          Bm
And the  queen, she's gone ` round the bend
Jumped of  Land's End

(repeat chorus, then middle, then repeat chorus 2x)

This tab is the work of Salvidor, it has been up on this site for 7 years, but suddenly UG staff have been trying to edit it. I have restored it to its original form, and if any more edits are attempted by UG staff, I will remove it from the site along with any other contributions I have submitted.This site would not be anything without the contributions of users, UG staff need to start respecting users and their hard work.
