Intro: Cm  Ab  Bb  G

Cm                          Ab
It started on a weekend in May
      Bb
I was looking for attention
G
needed intervention



Cm                       Ab
Felt somebody looking at me
       Bb
With a powder white complexion
G -stop-
feeling the connection


    Ab                    Bb
The way she looked was so ridiculous
      G
Every single step
       Cm
Had me waiting for the next


Ab                       Bb
Before I knew it, it was serious
G
Dragged me out the bar
G
To the backseat of a car


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


G
My English love affair


Cm                             Ab
Next thing we were back at her place
  Bb                   
a hideaway in Mayfair 
G
all the great and good there


Cm                            Ab
Drinking all the way to third base
Bb
Princes getting naked
G -stop-
Falling on their faces


Ab                    Bb
The story line was so ridiculous
G                        
Every single step had me 
Cm
begging for the next


Ab                       Bb
Before I knew it, it was serious
G
Dragged me up the stairs and it
G
wasn't ending there


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


           Ab
When I got out I knew that

nobody I knew would be
Bb
believing me
            Ab
I look back now and know that

nobody could ever take the
Bb
memory


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


G                 Cm  Ab  Bb
My English love affair
G                   Cm
My 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
