Intro:
G D/F# Em Em7 C C G

G          D/F#          Em    Em7 C
I read the news today oh, boy       
C       C/B           Aadd9           G
About a lucky man who made the grade   
G              D/F#            Em  Em7  C
And though the news was rather sad       
C            F            Em  Em7  C
Well, I just had to laugh           
C         F           Em C  G
I saw the photograph         

G           D/F#          Em   Em7 C
He blew his mind out in a car       
C         C/B             Aadd9               G
He didn't notice that the lights had changed   
G          Bm               Em     Em7  C
A crowd of people stood and stared       
C               F          
They'd seen his face before
Em                        Em/D  
Nobody was really sure if he was
                  C      G
from the house of lords   

G       D/F#          Em     Em7 C
I saw a film today oh,   boy      
C           C/B           Aadd9        G
The english army had just won the war   
G          D/F#           Em   Em7  C
A crowd of people turned away        
C          F            Em
But I just had to look    
Em     Em/D     C   
Having read the book
C           F#     G     Am  B5 C#5 D5 E5
I'd love to turn   you   on.             

     E                  
Woke up, fell out of bed
E                        D   
Dragged a comb across my head
         E                   B         
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup
    E             B                 
And looking up, I noticed I was late
         E                      
Found my coat and grabbed my hat
         E                 D  
Made the bus   in seconds flat
         E                B          
Found my way upstairs and had a smoke
    E                    B                
And somebody spoke and I went into a dream
C   G      D   A  E  C  G  D  A E  C  G
Ah      Ah                             
Bridge:
C G G G x4

G          D/F#           Em   Em7 C
I read the news today oh, boy       
C             C/B                 Aadd9       G
Four thousand holes in blackburn, lancashire   
G              D/F#              Em    Em7  C
And though the holes were rather small       
C           F             
They had to count them all
Em                             
Now they know how many holes it
Em/D                     C   
takes to fill the albert hall
C           F#     G     Am  Bm C D5 E5
I'd love to turn   you   on.
