Fmaj7 103210 (play 6th chord with thumb, or just play F)


Am, Dm, C, G, C, Em7, Am, Dm, C, G, Gadd4, G

           Am                     Fmaj7
Well grey clouds wraped round the town like elastic
 G                            C         Em7
Cars stood like toys made of Taiwanese plastic
    Am                          Fmaj7                G    Gadd4    G
The boy laughed at the spastic dancing around in the rain
       Am                               Fmaj7
While laundrettes cleaned clothes, high heals rub toes
 G                          C        Em7
Puddles splashed huddles of bus stop crows
  Am                             Fmaj7                        G    Gadd4    G
Dressed in their suits and their boots well they all look the same
 

   F                       G                   C            Em7         Am      G
I took myself down to the cafe to find all the boys lost in books and crackling vinyl
     F                 G                     C    C7
And carved out a poem above the urinal that read
            F         
Don't you cry for the lost
  G    
Smile for the living
 C           Em7       Am               G
Get what you need and give what you're given
 F                        G
Life's for the living so live it
                      Am
Or you're better off dead


Dm, C, G, C, Em7, Am, Dm, C, G, Gadd4, G

          Am                      Fmaj7
While the evening pulled the moon out of it's packet
  G                            C          Em7
Stars shone like buttons on an old man's jacket
    Am                   Fmaj7                         G    Gadd4    G
We needed a nail but we tacked it 'til it fell of the wall
       Am                              Fmaj7
While pigeon's pecked trains, sparks flew like planes
     G                            C       Em7
The rain showed the rainbows in the oil stains
       Am                       Fmaj7                G    Gadd4    G
And we all had new iPhones but no one had no one to call
 

    F                       G              
And I stumbled down to the stomach of the town
           C           Em7     Am          G
Where the widow takes memories to slowly drown
        F                     G                   C    C7
With a hand to the sky and a mist in her eye she said
            F         
Don't you cry for the lost
  G    
Smile for the living
 C           Em7       Am               G
Get what you need and give what you're given
 F                        G
Life's for the living so live it
                      Am
Or you're better off dead
 
Em, F, C, Em7, Am, Em, G, Gadd4, G

          Am                       Fmaj7
Well I'm sick of this town, this blind man's forage
      G                          C             Em7
They take your dreams down and stick them in storage
         Am                             Fmaj7                      G    Gadd4    G
You can have them back son when you've paid off your mortgage and loans
    Am                           Fmaj7
Oh hell with this place, I'll go it my own way
       G                        C             Em7
I'll stick out my thumb and I trudge down the highway
 Am                     Fmaj7         G    Gadd4    G
Someday someone must be going my way home
 
          F                        G
Till then I'll make my bed from a disused car
        C           Em7           Am         G
With a mattress of leaves and a blanket of stars
           F                       G                         C    C7
And I'll stitch the words into my heart with a needle and thread
            F         
Don't you cry for the lost
  G    
Smile for the living
 C           Em7       Am               G
Get what you need and give what you're given
          F                        G
You know life's for the living so live it
                      C    C7
Or you're better off dead
 
            F (single struming from here)        
Don't you cry for the lost
  G    
Smile for the living
 C           Em7       Am               G
Get what you need and give what you're given
 F                        G
Life's for the living so live it
                             
Or you're better off dead

Thanks for the upload. The only part that sounds funny to me is the Em in the second instrumental part, so i play a Dm there instead same as the first. To me it sounds good with or without a capo too. Fun and easy to play :)
