Verse 1

Em                   G
High on the mountain stands a boat
D                 Bm
But are they gods or real folk?
Em                    G
We can't see the fire but we smell the smoke
D                       Bm
Who'll take the plough? Who'll be the yoke?
Em                G
Night after night I don't believe
D               Bm
We are the ones you won't deceive
Em          G
Not a thing will you achieve
D              Bm
'cos we belong and we won't leave

Chorus:

Em       G
Trouble, trouble
D                      Bm
I try to chase trouble but it's chasing me
Em       G
Trouble, trouble
D            Bm
Trouble with a capital T

Verse 2

Em                   G
Lay down your silver and your gold
D             Bm
I'm a man who can't be sold
Em                G
And, even when my heart grows cold
D               Bm
I'll curse your evil stranglehold
Em                    G
The waves are running much too high
D                Bm
It's got so dark can't see the sky
Em                     G
But a change is coming by and by
D                Bm
A time to laugh, a time to die

Chorus

Em       G
Trouble, trouble
D                      Bm
I try to chase trouble but it's chasing me
Em       G
Trouble, trouble
D            Bm
Trouble with a capital T

Verse 3

Em           G
Been so long away from home
D                  Bm
I almost made this place my own
Em                G
Now it seems I'll soon be gone
D             Bm
Moving on and all alone
Em                   G
High on the mountain stands a boat
D                 Bm
But are they gods or real folk?
Em                    G
We can't see the fire but we smell the smoke
D                       Bm
Who'll take the plough? Who'll be the yoke?

Not sure about the guitar solo as it sounds a bit dodgy against the studio version but 
perfect with live versions. Also when he plays it live, he uses some bends at the start 
the solo.

Enjoy :)
