Em D C Bm (x2)

G                                 Am
 The streets of pleasure took you to the top
          D                       C         Am
But every light was red and every sign said stop
       C                      D
I felt so confined, just like glued to this spot, oh
G                        Am
 As were sleeping in the noon day sun
               D            C        Am
We escaped the test and the marathon run
    C                      C                 Em        D
And nobody heard and these muffled cries of "Alfie!"
C         Bm      Em     D  C
 We put a stop to that
Bm        Em    D C              Bm          Em        D C
Whoa, but Alfie,    I wish you'd please come back


Am
 So no one's hurt - we might have made it through
                D                                   Em
But now there's nothing left except the memories of you

D C Bm Em D C Bm

G                 Am
 With overflowing powerful woes
               D
'Cause there's real and fright
       C          Am        C
To the top of the stairs to find poor Alfie
    D
And blood stained letters

      D
Don't count for change
          C
And don't look for blame
              D
'Cause it's a fair exchange
        Em   D    C    Am     C
For the last adventure I have left

Am D

G Am D C Am C D

G                               Am
 'Cause we were sleeping in the noon day sun
     D                      C        Am
We escaped the test and the marathon run
    C                      D                 Em        D
And nobody heard and these muffled cries of "Alfie!"
C         Bm      Em     D C
 We put a stop to that
Bm       Em    D C             Bm          Em     D
 Oh, but Alfie,   I wish you'd please come back

C

Bm        Am
 Now it's gonna be hard for me to make it through
     D
When all that's left is the memories of
E                                   C
Nothing left except the memories of war and pain
       D
Please pity poor Alfie

Em D C Bm (x2)

     Em   D C       Bm      Em     D  C  Bm
Poor Alfie    put a stop to that

Poor Alfie    I wish you'd please come back

Poor Alfie    put a stop to that
        Em   D C              Bm          Em     D   C  Bm
Oh, but Alfie    I wish you'd please come back
