Song title:      Ragtop Car
Original Album:  Contact (Noisettes)

Words and Music by Shingai Shoniwa and Daniel Smith

NOTES:
On the recording, the INTRO is played on a mandolin. The chords are A and E so,
 if you have an electric guitar, you could play at the 12th fret to keep
in a high register. Unfortunately, with an acoustic, you don't have much room
to fret up there so you'll need another arrangement. Timing is 4/4.


INTRO:
Chords:
A   577655 or 12 12 14 14 14 12    C#m 446654
E   779997 or 12 14 14 13 12 12    B   224442 or 799877

E    779997
B    799877
C#m  446654

E
Sitting in a ragtop car with you
Feels like my freedom is a passport,
Shining bright inside the pocket
                  B
Deep inside of my soul

E
You and me together gonna take on the world
So look out 'cause we're coming on strong
And the world is our oyster
       B
We can drink on them to victory

C#m                   B
Though there are many obstacles ahead
E                               B
We will not give up 'til we are dead


[play: A - E as per INTRO]  [CHORUS starts on the E]

A  577655    B    799877

E                     A - E
  Two souls together,       sitting in a ragtop car
C#m
  I believe we're bound for glory
B
Everybody knows the same old story
A                                B
Keep the rain behind you and the sun straight up ahead

E                                      A - E
Seeing all the colours of the rainbow
                           A - E
I done told my friends goodbye
                                          B
I made love with my man for the very last time
E                                        A - E
  Changing up the switches on the radio
                                A - E
I didn't dream I'd make it this far
Now I'm flying down the highway, my way,
B                    
  Two fingers in the air
C#m                   B
Though there are many obstacles ahead
E                               B
We will not give up 'til we are dead
