Capo 5th fret.


[Verse 1]

C                                                 Am7
Post office clerks put up signs saying 'Position Closed'
    C                                                 Am7
And secretaries turn off typewriters and put on their coats
F                    C            G                  F
Janitors padlock the gates for security guards to patrol
                             C
And bachelors phone up their friends for a drink
          G                      F
While the married ones turn on a chat show
            C               F                  C
And they'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow

C                                           Am7
'Gentlemen, time please, you know we can't serve any more'
        C                                                      Am7
Now the traffic lights change to stop when there's nothing to go
       F                         C
And by five o' clock everything's dead
    G                    F
And every third car is a cab,
                    C
And ignorant people sleep in their beds
         G                       F
Like the doped white mice in the college lab


[Chorus]

    C            F        C                  F
And nothing ever happens, nothing happens at all:
    Am                    F
The needle returns to the start of the song
       G                     F
And we all sing along like before
          C               F                  C
And we'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow


[Verse 2]

C                                        G/B   Am7
Telephone exchanges click while there's nobody there
    C                                                    Am7
The Martians could land in the car park and no one would care
    F                        C
The close-circuit cameras in department stores
          G                F
Shoot the same movie everyday
                                     C
And the stars of these films neither die nor get killed
        G                     F     C/E Dm G/B
Just survive constant action replay


[Chorus]

    C            F        C                  F
And nothing ever happens, nothing happens at all:
    Am                    F
The needle returns to the start of the song
       G                     F
And we all sing along like before
          C               F                  C
And we'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow


[Bridge]

[Verse 3]

    C                                      Am7
And bill hoardings advertise products that nobody needs
       C                                               Am7
While 'Angry from Manchester' writes to complain about all the repeats on TV;
    F                  C
And computer terminals report
                  G                    F
Some gains on the values of copper and tin,
                           C
While American businessmen snap up Van Goghs
        G                   F    C/E  Dm G/B
For the price of a hospital wing


[Final Chorus]

    C            F        C                  F
And nothing ever happens, nothing happens at all:
    Am                    F
The needle returns to the start of the song
       G                     F
And we all sing along like before
    C            F        C                  F
And nothing ever happens, nothing happens at all:
        Am                       F        
They'll burn down the synagogues at six o'clock
          G                   F
And we'll all go along like before:
          C               F                  C
And we'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow.

Great tab mate. Does anyone have an accurate tab of the other guitar? Would love to attempt a loop cover of this song.
