And thanks to the tab before this one. it gave me a base to work off of.

Intro:
F#       B
             F#                   G#m
Why do you speak with that accent now?
           E                         B
Everyone knows you're not from the streets.
             F#                       G#m 
You went to prep school in Cambridge,
                    E                       B
With daughters and sons of the privileged elite.
                                        G#m
Their fortunes from shipping and industry,
                   E                   B
Their futures in yacht clubs and tails.
                F#                    G#m
So why do you speak with that accent now?
           E                         G#m
Everyone knows you're moonlighting here.

                            E
To avail yourself of your heritage,
                            B
For a season or two in the sun.
                                 F#
Draw well from the funds in the trust,
                                    G#m
Thanks to the fathers of fortunate sons,
                          E
For us it's a matter of charging the gates
                          B            F#
For you it's a matter of blood and connections
     B           F#                  B              
Of blood and connections. 

               F#                      G#m
So who do you fool with that costume now?
           E                       B
Everyone knows you're not who you seem
               F#               G#m
You've got a hard way about you
                   E                  G#m
For someone whose passage is already paid

                                      E
By the sins and the schemes of your father
                               B
And the infinite reach of his arm
                                 F#
Draw well from the funds in the trust,
                                    G#m
Thanks to the fathers of fortunate sons,
                           E
For us it's a matter of charging the gates
                           B
For you it's a matter of blood
                                 F#
Drink well from your bottomless cup
                        G#m
And bask in your good fortune
                          E
For us it's a matter of charging the gates
                          F#            G#m   
For you it's a matter of blood and connections

                                           B
So where will you be when you tire of the fun
                                               E
The escape, the charade, and your time in the sun
                                     B     
I know everyone does their own reinvention
                  F#                   G#m
But yours has a taste that's hard to swallow
                                           B
And what will you tell of your tenure with us?
                                                   E
Will you build yourself up, like the size of your hunt?
                                                  B
If they're anything like what you've been telling us,
                    F#
Those stories will make true believers
                         B
Of the chumps and the fools.

                F#                   G#m
So why do you speak with that accent now?
           E                          B  
Everyone knows you're not from the streets.
