Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is one of the Live version tab I took it from Sting Live in South America 2011
https://youtu.be/pf0pSWaa820
Seems like almost same with any other lives like Live at New York Rockefeller Plaza in
May 2010
https://youtu.be/VY1MfP9WUQk

A bit diff from original is the final part.  eg "Be yourself ..." 8times and then "Oh..
Yeah.." 3times.
I think play with drums would be much better especially on the Instrumental part. I
really love it.
Pls try it.


[Intro]

Em A Bm DM7
Em A Bm DM7


[Verse]

Em          A             Bm          DM7
Don't drink coffee I take tea my dear
Em      A                 Bm   DM7
Like my toast done on one side
Em      A             Bm                 DM7
You can hear it in my accent when I talk
       Em         A      Bm
I'm an Englishman in New York


Em     A                  Bm      DM7
See me walking down Fifth Avenue
Em        A               Bm   DM7
A walking cane here at my side
Em        A          Bm     DM7
I take it everywhere I walk
       Em         A      Bm
I'm an Englishman in New York


[Chorus]

  Em        A     Bm
Oh, I'm an alien I'm a legal alien
       Em         A      Bm
I'm an Englishman in New York
  Em        A     Bm
Oh, I'm an alien I'm a legal alien
       Em         A      Bm
I'm an Englishman in New York


[Verse]

Em       A              Bm          DM7
"Manners maketh man" as someone said
Em       A           Bm    DM7
He's the hero of the day
Em      A             Bm                 DM7
Takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile
       Em      A                Bm
Be yourself no matter what they say


  Em        A     Bm
Oh, I'm an alien I'm a legal alien
       Em         A      Bm
I'm an Englishman in New York
  Em        A     Bm
Oh, I'm an alien I'm a legal alien
       Em         A      Bm
I'm an Englishman in New York


[Bridge]

D                 A                 Bm                           F#
Modesty propriety Lead to notoriety You could end up as the only one
G                   A                    F#                                 Bm
Gentleness sobriety Rare in this society Night a candle's brighter than the sun


[Instrumental]

Em  A  Bm  DM7  Em  A  Bm  DM7  Em  A  Bm  DM7  Em  A  Bm
                                                          (Drum!!)


[Verse]

Em              A              Bm         DM7
Takes more than combat gear to make a man
Em                A             Bm    DM7
Takes more than a license for a gun
Em            A         Bm                      DM7
Confront your enemies, avoid them when you can
Em               A              Bm
A gentleman will walk but never run

Em       A              Bm            DM7
"Manners maketh man" as someone said
Em       A           Bm    DM7
He's the hero of the day
Em      A             Bm                  DM7
Takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile
       Em         A             Bm
Be yourself no matter what they say
       Em         A             Bm
Be yourself no matter what they say
       Em         A             Bm
Be yourself no matter what they say
       Em         A             Bm
Be yourself no matter what they say
       Em         A             Bm
Be yourself no matter what they say
       Em         A             Bm
Be yourself no matter what they say
       Em         A             Bm
Be yourself no matter what they say
       Em         A             Bm
Be yourself no matter what they say

[Chorus]

  Em        A     Bm
Oh, I'm an alien I'm a legal alien
       Em         A      Bm
I'm an Englishman in New York
