Intro: D  Gbm  Em  A7

     D
He's pining for her
     Gbm
In a people carrier 
               Em
There might be buildings and pretty things to see like that
    A7
But architecture won't do 
            D
Although it might say a lot about the city or town
        Gbm
I don't care what they've got keep on turning them down 
         Em
It don't say the funny things she does
           A7
Don't even try and cheer him up, because
              D
It just won't happen 

Interlude: D  Gbm  Em  A7

             D
He's got the feeling again
             Gbm
This time on the aeroplane 
               Em
There might be tellys in the back of the seats in front
    A7
But Rodney and Del won't do
            D 
Although it might take your mind off the aches and the pains
              Gbm
Laugh when he falls through the bar but you're feeling the same 
           Em
'Cause she isn't there to hold your hand
             A7
She won't be waiting for you when you land 


                    Bm           G
It feels like she's just nowhere near 
    Bm                        G
You could well be out on your ear 
                   Bm                      E
This thought comes closely followed by the fear 
        G          Gbm
And the thought of it
          Em     A7
Makes you feel a bit Ill 

Interlude: D  Gbm  Em  A7

D
Yesterday I saw a girl
    Gbm                                 Em
Who looked like someone you might knock about with
           A7
And almost shouted 
         D
And then reality kicked in within us
   Gbm
It seems as we become the winners 
    Em
You lose a bit of summat
         A7
And half wonder if you won it at all


                    Bm                  G
And don't say 'owt 'cause you've got no idea
          Bm            G 
And she's still nowhere near 
                      Bm                      G
And the thought comes closely followed by the fear 
        G          Gbm
And the thought of it
          Em     A7
Makes you feel a bit

...Ill 

   D             Em
Despair in the departure lounge
     Gbm             G        Gbm       Em
It's one and they'll still be around at three
                  A7
No signal and low battery

  1. Everytime i see tabs with an E on it people always seem to shy away from it. it’s not that hard plus it sounds just fine with the chords the way they are. You gotta learn this stuff someday, so don’t run from the E chord. It’s not much harder than an F on guitar. Just keep trying and you’ll have it in no time.

  2. listennavi

    -2 is easier
