The Proclaimers - Throw the 'R' Away from their first album "This is the Story"
By Doom Drew

NOTE: I learned this purely by listening so I would appreciate any corrections that may 
be appropriate.
Also there is one particular chord which I (using online chord identifier) identified as 
Emaj7sus4.
The chord looks like this...  It is much simpler than the name suggests.

Capo 4

Intro      C  F  C  Emaj7sus4  (x2)

C            F
I've been so sad
      Fm                     C
Since you said my accent was bad
C               F            Fm         C
He's wearin' a frown   This Caledonian clown


    C                              F
I'm just going to have to learn to hesitate
   Fm           Fm7              Emaj7sus4       C
To make sure my words    On your Saxon ears don't grate
    C                        F
But I wouldn't know a single word to say
     Fm                Fm7          Emaj7sus4    C
If I flattened all the vowels   And threw the 'R' away


Some days I stand
On your green and pleasant land
How dare I show face
When my diction is such a disgrace

I'm just going to have to learn to hesitate
To make sure my words
On your Saxon ears don't grate
But I wouldn't know a single word to say
If I flattened all the vowels
And threw the 'R' away

C               C7
You say that if I want to get ahead
F              Fm7
The language I use should be left for dead
C          Emaj7sus4  C
It doesn't please your ear
C              C7
And though you tell it like a leg-pull
F               Fm7
It seems you're still full of John Bull
C        Emaj7sus4      C
You just refuse       to hear

Oh what can I do
To be understood by you
Perhaps for some money
I could talk like a bee dripping honey.

I'm just going to have to learn to hesitate
To make sure my words
On your Saxon ears don't grate
But I wouldn't know a single word to say
If I flattened all the vowels
And threw the 'R' away

You say that if I want to get ahead
The language I use should be left for dead
It doesn't please your ear
And though you tell it like a leg-pull
I think you're still full of John Bull
You just refuse to hear

He's been so sad
Since you said his accent was bad
He's wearin' a frown
This Caledonian clown

I'm just going to have to learn to hesitate
To make sure my words
On your Saxon ears don't grate
But I wouldn't know a single word to say
If I flattened all the vowels
And threw the 'R' away
Flattened all the vowels
And threw the 'R' away
If I flattened all the vowels
And threw the 'R' away
