Verse 1:
---------

F#m            E/F#       D           A      Em7
I hear you are singing a song of the past; I see no tears 

F#m             E/F#          D          A        Em7      D/F#
I know that you know that it may be the last for many years 

G                     A              D            A      G
You'd gamble or give anything to be in with the better half 

G              A                      D            A         G
But how many friends must I have to begin with to make you laugh 

Dm7   G(III)   Dm7   G(III)   Fmaj7



Chorus:
-------

A                      B7      
Will you still have a song to sing when 

       Gmaj7                              F#m              E F#m
The razor boy comes and takes your fancy things away?

F#m                  C#m               D        A/C#  E      D E
Will you still be singing it on that cold and windy day? 



Verse 2:
---------

F#m               E/F#      D            A        Em7             
You know that the coming is so close at hand, you feel all right 

F#m          E/F#      D          A         Em7        D/F#        
I guess only women in cages can stand this kind of night 

G             A                 D             A           G
I guess only women in cages can play down the things they lose 

G              A                          D             A    G
You think no tomorrow will come when you lay down you can't refuse 

Dm7   G(III)   Dm7   G(III)   Fmaj7

A                      B7      
Will you still have a song to sing when 

       Gmaj7                              F#m              E F#m
The razor boy comes and takes your fancy things away?

F#m                  C#m               D        A/C#  E      D E
Will you still be singing it on that cold and windy day?

G             A                  D              A          G
I guess only women in cages can play down the things they lose 

G              A                               D            A     G
You think no tomorrow will come when you lay down you can't refuse 

Dm7   G(III)   Dm7   G(III)   Fmaj7


[Chorus]

A                      B7      
Will you still have a song to sing when 

       Gmaj7                              F#m              E F#m
The razor boy comes and takes your fancy things away?

F#m                  C#m               D        A/C#  E      D E
Will you still be singing it on that cold and windy day? 


[Ending: F#m E/F# D A]



You can vary the chords a little from the ones given above. For the 
interlude (before the chorus) I think Dm7 sounds good, but a straight Dm 
is fine too.

Also, a lot of the G and A chords can be played as Gadd9 and Aadd9 chords, 
to vary the sound a little. For example, try playing x0242x instead of 
x0222x once in a while. (On the original, the piano plays mostly Aadd9 
and Gadd9, instead of plain A and G).
