Em7 Am7

baby britain feels the best

G C

floating over a sea of vodka

Em7 Am7

separated from the rest

G C

fights problems with bigger problems

Em7 Am7

sees the ocean fall and rise

G C

counts the waves that somehow didn't hit her

Em7 Am7

water pouring from her eyes

G C

alcoholic and very bitter

Chorus:

Em Em/G Em/A Em/B C

for someone half as smart

Em Em/G Em/A Em/B C

you'd be a work of art

Em Em/G Em/A Em/B C G/B

you put your-self a- part

Am C

and i can't help until you start

Verse 2:

Em7 Am7

we knocked another couple back

G C

the dead soliders lined up on the table

Em7 Am7

still prepared for an attack

G C

they didn't know they'd been disabled

Em7 Am7

felt a wave a rush of blood

G C

you won't be happy til the bottle's broken

Em7 Am7

and you're out swimming in the flood

G C

you kept back kept unspoken

Repeat chorus

Bridge:

C A/C#

you got a look in your eye

D

when you're saying goodbye

B/D#

like you wanna say hi

Instrumental:

Em Em/G Em/A Em/B C (3X)

G/B Am C

Verse 3:

Em7 Am7

the light was on but it was dim

G C

revolver's been turned over

Em7 Am7

and now it's ready once again

G C

the radio was playing crimson and clover

Em7 Am7

london bridge is safe and sound

G C

no matter what you keep repeating

Em7 Am7

nothing's gonna drag me down

G C

to a death that's not worth cheating

Repeat chorus 2X

For the chorus part, all you are doing is playing Em7 with an ascending

bass line that looks like this when tabbed out:

All E minors listed here are actually Em7 chords
