Intro: C F C F

Verse:
C               F       
I would like to leave this city,
C                      F    
This old town don't smell too pretty,
   C       G           Am        D7                  F    
and I can feel the warning signs running around my mind.
C          F    
And when I leave this island,
    C                     F                 C
I'll book myself into a soul asylum,
            G           Am         D7             F    
cause I can feel the warning signs runing around my mind.

Chorus:
Am
            C
So here I go,
           E7                          Am
I'm still scratching around in the same old hole,
  F                            D7         G    G7  
my body feels young but my mind is very old.
Am
                 C
So what do you say?
          E7                              Am
You can't give me the dreams that are mine anyway.
    F    
I'm half the world away,
Fm
half the world away,
C       G           Am
half the world away
              D7
I've been lost, I've been found
          F           C         F    
but I don't feel down.

Verse:
C          F    
And when I leave this planet,
C                       F    
You know I'd stay but I just can't stand it,
   C       G           Am        D7                  F    
And I can feel the warning signs running around my mind.
C             F    
And if I could leave this spirit,
   C                      F                 
I'd find me a hole and I'd leave in it,
   C         G           Am         D7             F    
And I can feel the warning signs running around my mind.

Chorus:
Am
            C
So here I go,
           E7                          Am
I'm still scratching around in the same old hole,
  F                            D7         G    G7  
my body feels young but my mind is very old.
Am
                 C
So what do you say?
          E7                              Am
You can't give me the dreams that are mine anyway.
    F    
I'm half the world away,
Fm
half the world away,
C       G           Am
half the world away
              D7
I've been lost, I've been found
          F           C     F     C  
but I don't feel down.
       F               C  
No I don't feel down
        F              C     F     C     F    
No I don't feel down
          C        F    
Don't feel down

Don't feel.

  1. I use -2 to sing at if anyone else out there is struggling to go crazy high :))

  2. What’s the best strumming pattern for this?

  3. JoshDunDrums|-/

  4. Great, one of my favorite Oasis numbers

    @ Sophie

    Use D Chord with the second fret from the top open. Worked for me. ?

  6. Is there any other chord I could use instead of D7?

  7. Great to play love it

  8. DaftCunt

    awesome, I love playing this. easy and very melodic :)

  9. -5 for an easier key to sing at!

  10. This is really lovely to play!

  11. nevermindtbc

    Thanks for this.

    Muting the A string when playing the C chord gives the nice ring to the verse chord progression.
