  Meeting every Tuesday in a club in Soho

  He's wishing he could give her a damn good thrashing

  I'm just waiting on magic shoes, got three wee chords, and I just can't lose
  E                   D     E        E                     A    G  E
  I'm just finding my own way there, I lost my voice and I grew my hair

  Well, brother John's long gone, keeps his nose clean
  E   E7

  He's sucking on a black and white TV screen

  Well, he says he got a girl and a paper memory
  A               G          A         G
  Pictures on the wall and a dog named Henry
  E                         A      E
  I'm just dreaming on Rockefeller Plaza.
  E7   E   E7

  Well, Ella's in the band but she's always solo
  E   E7
        E                              A
  She's dressed in rags and covered in dayglo
  E   E7
  A              G            A         G
  Banging on the drums like a big white throwback
  A                 G            A        G
  Screaming all the while at her husband, poor Jack!
  E                         A      E
  I'm just dreaming of Rockefeller Plaza
  E7   E   E7
  
Chorus
  E                        D       E
  Well I'm just waiting on pigs to fly
  E                          A   G  E
  Got cold dead brains and a reason why
  E                  D       E
  I just better move half as slow
  E                       A   G   E
  As be your dog and your one man show

Break (played twice)

Sounds very good but it's not exactly the way Jon's playing it on the DVD! But nice tab, though!
