Intro: G Bm  Em Em7  C  C

Verse:
G          Bm            Em    Em7
I read the news today oh boy

C        C            Asus2
About a lucky man who made the grade
G              Bm              Em   Em7
And though the news was rather sad
C           F       Em    Em7
Well I just had to laugh
C         F       Em   C
I saw the photograph

Verse:
G           Bm            Em   Em7
He blew his mind out in a car
C         C                Asus2
He didn't notice that the lights had changed
G          Bm               Em      Em7
a crowd of people stood and stared
C               F
They'd seen his face before
Em
Nobody was really sure
   Em7                      C
If he was from the House of Lords

Verse:
G       Bm            Em   Em7
I saw a film today oh boy
C           C             Asus2
The English Army had just won the war
G          Bm            Em   Em7
a crowd of people turned away
C          F          Em
But I just had to look
       Em7      C
Having read the book
            -no chords-
I'd love to turn you on

Bridge:
E
Woke up, fell out of bed
                         Dsus2
Dragged a comb across my head
         E                  B7sus4
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup
    E            B7sus4             -B7-
And looking up I noticed I was late -ha ha ha.-
         E
Found my coat and grabbed my hat
                        Dsus2
Made the bus in seconds flat
         E                B7sus4
Found my way upstairs and had a smoke
    E                         B7sus4
And somebody spoke and I went into a dream.

Interlude:
C G        D A   E      C G   D A  |E D C D|
-Aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh-

Verse:
G          Bm            Em  Em7
I read the news today oh boy
C             C                   Asus2
Four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire
G              Bm                Em    Em7
And though the holes were rather small
C           F
They had to count them all
Em                              Em7                      C
Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall
             -no chords-
I'd love to turn you on.

For the “I’d love to turn you on” part I recommend C, Cm7, C7, and Am, it sounds really nice!

Taylor burnham

For the part where it says I love to turn you on and in the actual song it gets really wierd, I like to just bar all the strings then move it down the neck, it sounds pretty cool I like it

Margot

What kind of strumming pattern does everyone use for this song, because I’ve just been doing DD but I want to use a strumming pattern that sounds more like the song

Lowri

If you find the B7sus4, Dsus2 an Asus2 hard you can change them to B7, D and A I find it a lot easier

Ana
