THE JAM: DOWN IN THE TUBE STATION AT MIDNIGHT
Words and music by Paul Weller


Am                 D7
The distant echo
Am                  D7                  Gmaj7
Of faraway voices boarding faraway trains
Am                 D7
To take them home to
Am                  D7                  Gmaj7
The ones that they love and who love them forever
Am                              D7
The glazed, dirty _ steps
Am                  D7                                     Gmaj7
Repeat my own and reflect my thoughts
Am                  D7              Am                  D7
Cold and uninviting, partially naked
                  G                                    Bm
Except for toffee wrappers and this mornings papers
C                     D
Mr Jones got run down
G                                       Bm
Headlines of death and sorrow, they tell of tomorrow
C                                 D
Madmen on the rampage
G                                             Bm                C     D
And I?m down in the tube station at midnight. Oooooooooooh

Am                 D7
I fumble for change
Am                  D7                  Gmaj7
And pull out the queen, smiling, beguiling
Am                 D7
I put in the money
Am                  D7        Gmaj7
And pull out a plumb behind me
Am                      D7
Whispers in the shadows
Am                  D7       Gmaj7
Gruff blazing voices, hating, waiting
Am                      D7     Am                      D7
?Hey boy? they shout, ?have you got any money?


                 G                                           Bm
And I said, ?I?ve a little money and a take away curry.
C                                           D
I?m on my way home to my wife
G                                    Bm
She?ll be lining up the cutlery, you know she?s expecting me,
C                                           D
Polishing the glasses and out the cork?.
G                                             Bm                C     D
And I?m down in the tube station at midnight. Oooooooooooh

I first felt a fist
And then a kick, I could now smell their breath,
They smelt of pubs
And Wormwood scrubs and too many right wing meetings.
My life swan around me in its own existence
The smell of brown leather, it blended in with the weather,
It filled my eyes, ears, nose and mouth,
It blocked my senses
Couldn?t see, hear, speak any longer.
And I?m down in the tube station at midnight. Oooooooooooh
I said I was down in the tube station at midnight. Oooooooooooh

The last thing I saw as I lay there on the floor
Was ?Jesus saves? painted by an atheist nutter
And a British rail poster read ? have an awayday a cheap holiday, do it today?

I glanced back on my life and thought about my wife
Cause they took the keys and she?ll think its me
And I?m down in the tube station at midnight. Oooooooooooh
The wine will be flat and the curry?s gone cold

I?m down in the tube station at midnight. Oooooooooooh
Don?t wanna go
And I?m down in the tube station at midnight. Oooooooooooh

This is a great song from a great band, I cant believe that there
isn?t that many Jam songs on here.
It?s my goal to let everyone know how great they are.
Theres more where this came from.
