Lyrics and Chords

Intro:
G Bm | Em Em7 | C | C

Verse 1:
G             Bm/F#          Em
  I read the news today, oh boy,
C          Em/B          Am        Cmaj7
  About a lucky man who made the grade;
G                 Bm              Em
  And though the news was rather sad,
C               F      Em   Em/D
  Well, I just had to laugh.
C             F    Em   Cmaj7
  I saw the photograph.

Verse 2:
G              Bm/F#         Em
  He blew his mind out in a car,
C            Em/B            Am          Cmaj7
  He didn't notice that the lights had changed.
G             Bm                Em
  A crowd of people stood and stared,
C                  F
  They'd seen his face before,
 Em
Nobody was really sure
    Em/D                     C
If he was from the House of Lords.

Verse 3:
G          Bm/F#          Em
  I saw a film today, oh boy,
C             Em/B           Am      Cmaj7
  The English Army had just won the war.
G             Bm             Em
  A crowd of people turned away,
C             F
  But I just had to look,
Em        Em/D     C
  Having read the book.
     Cmaj7 C  Bm/F# G  Em/A
I'd love  to turn  you on.

Break:
E | E
      Woke up, fell out of bed,
                          D/A
Dragged a comb across my head,
          E                   F#m/B
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup,
     E            F#m/B
And looking up I noticed I was late. (ha ha ha)

          E
Found my coat and grabbed my hat,
                          D/A
Made the bus in seconds flat,
          E                F#m/B  B7
Found my way upstairs and had a smoke
     E                    F#m/B
And somebody spoke and I went into a dream.

C     | G     | D     | A   | E
Aaa a-a aaa a-a aaa a-a aaaaa aaaah
C   | G       | D       A | E D C D
Aaaaa aaaaa a-a aaa a-a aah

Verse 4:
G             Bm/F#          Em
  I read the news today, oh boy,
C                Em/B                Am    Cmaj7
  Four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire.
G                 Bm                 Em
  And though the holes were rather small,
C              F
  They had to count them all.
 Em
Now they know how many holes
    Em/D                     C
It takes to fill the Albert Hall.
             Bm/F# | G  C/A
I'd love to turn    you on.
