Intro: CmCm chord  AbAb chord  BbBb chord  GG chord

CmCm chord                          AbAb chord
It started on a weekend in May
      BbBb chord
I was looking for attention
GG chord
needed intervention



CmCm chord                       AbAb chord
Felt somebody looking at me
       BbBb chord
With a powder white complexion
GG chord -stop-
feeling the connection


    AbAb chord                    BbBb chord
The way she looked was so ridiculous
      GG chord
Every single step
       CmCm chord
Had me waiting for the next


AbAb chord                       BbBb chord
Before I knew it, it was serious
GG chord
Dragged me out the bar
GG chord
To the backseat of a car


         CmCm chord
When the lights go out,
                 AbAb chord
she's all I ever think about
                    BbBb chord
The picture burning in my brain
       BbBb chord
kissing in the rain
  GG chord                             CmCm chord
I can't forget my English love affair
                        AbAb chord
Today, I'm seven thousand miles away
                 BbBb chord
The movie playing in my head
       BbBb chord
Of her king size bed
        GG chord
Means I can't forget my
               Cm, Ab, BbBb chord
English love affair


GG chord
My English love affair


CmCm chord                             AbAb chord
Next thing we were back at her place
  BbBb chord                   
a hideaway in Mayfair 
GG chord
all the great and good there


CmCm chord                            AbAb chord
Drinking all the way to third base
BbBb chord
Princes getting naked
GG chord -stop-
Falling on their faces


AbAb chord                    BbBb chord
The story line was so ridiculous
GG chord                        
Every single step had me 
CmCm chord
begging for the next


AbAb chord                       BbBb chord
Before I knew it, it was serious
GG chord
Dragged me up the stairs and it
GG chord
wasn't ending there


         CmCm chord
When the lights go out,
                 AbAb chord
she's all I ever think about
                    BbBb chord
The picture burning in my brain
       BbBb chord
kissing in the rain
   GG chord                              CmCm chord
I can't forget my English love affair
                          AbAb chord
Today, I'm seven thousand miles away
                 BbBb chord
The movie playing in my head
       BbBb chord
Of her king size bed
        GG chord
Means I can't forget my
               CmCm chord  AbAb chord  BbBb chord  GG chord
English love affair


           AbAb chord
When I got out I knew that

nobody I knew would be
BbBb chord
believing me
            AbAb chord
I look back now and know that

nobody could ever take the
BbBb chord
memory


         CmCm chord
When the lights go out,
                 AbAb chord
she's all I ever think about
                    BbBb chord
The picture burning in my brain
       BbBb chord
kissing in the rain
  GG chord                              CmCm chord
I can't forget my English love affair
                          AbAb chord
Today, I'm seven thousand miles away
                 BbBb chord
The movie playing in my head
       BbBb chord
Of her king size bed
        GG chord
Means I can't forget my
                CmCm chord  AbAb chord  BbBb chord
English love affair

  1. I use ddu for strumming pattern and it works pretty well also use -3 for easier chords

  2. I keep getting this weird buzing noise only when I play this song, and I love it too. does anyone have any tips?

  3. For my strumming pattern I use down down up up down up but I hammer on the first down and the second up if that makes any sense

  4. I find down down down up down up is a good strumming pattern; )

  5. real good and nice chords! although does anyone have a good strumming pattern?? ive been using down down up down down up

  6. Thanks for the tab but this sounds really wrong… I don’t think that Ab and G are right at all although I can’t figure it out myself…

  7. -3 is easier
