[Spoken Intro]

I know when to go out - know when to stay in.

Get things done


[Verse 1]
 
C 
I catch the paper boy 
                         G
But things don’t really change 
                     Am
I’m standing in the wind 
                     E   E7  
But I never wave bye-bye 
F       C      G   Em  Em7
  But I try, I try 


[Verse 2]
 
C
There’s no sign of life 
                        G
It’s just the power to charm 
                 Am
I’m lying in the rain 
                      E   E7
But I never waved bye-bye 
F       C      G   Em  Em7
  But I try, I try 


[Chorus]

Em7
Never gonna fall for 
C 
(Modern love) - walks besides me 
D 
(Modern love) - walks on by 
Em 
(Modern love) - gets me to the 
F 
Church on time 
C 
(Church on time) - terrifies me 
D 
(Church on time) - makes me party 
Em 
(Church on time) - puts my trust in 
F 
God and man 
C 
(God and man) - no confessions 
D 
(God and man) - no religion 
Em 
(God and man) - don’t believe in 
F 
Modern love 


[Sax solo]
(Verse chords)

C  | G  | Am  | E  E7 |  F   C   G   Em  Em7


[Verse 3]

C
It’s not really work 
                       G
It’s just the power to charm 
                       Am
Still standing in the wind
                      E   E7
But I never waved bye-bye 
F       C      G   Em  Em7
  But I try, I try 
 

(repeat chorus)

[Chorus]

Em7
Never gonna fall for 
C 
(Modern love) - walks besides me 
D 
(Modern love) - walks on by 
Em 
(Modern love) - gets me to the 
F 
Church on time 
C 
(Church on time) - terrifies me 
D 
(Church on time) - makes me party 
Em 
(Church on time) - puts my trust in 
F 
God and man 
C 
(God and man) - no confessions 
D 
(God and man) - no religion 
Em 
(God and man) - don’t believe in 
F 
Modern love 

 
[Playout]

(Part 1)

C            D
Modern love, modern love 
Em           F
Modern love, modern love

x 3


(Part 2)

C
Modern love walks besides me
D 
(Modern love)
Em                     F
Modern love walks on by....

Brilliant....perfect chord chart among a sea of really dodgy ones. Well Done!

Thanks - no harm in being accurate, I always think.

I do multiple passes against YouTube, to make sure it matches up.

I have seen one version on cifraclub.com that has the intro chords which I would quite like to add in but I'm not quite sold yet on how they map the actual song.
