Billy Bragg - Lovers Town Revisited Guitar Chords

Billy Bragg

alternative country, alternative rock, anti-folk, folk

Chords: D, G, Em, C
Lover’s Town Revisited by Billy Bragg
By Tcoldsteel

Another of Billy’s classic tunes.

Again, listen to the timing of the songs to synch the chords (cos it was on the button when
I typed it on Word, but not when I copied onto UG).

I play this on my Burns Steer with only a little distortion but palm mute (a bit) and with
the volume up on the guitar.

Depending on your voice you could stick a capo on either 1 or 3. I'm sure Billy wouldn't mind.


[Intro]
D

[Verse 1]
  G		     Em
It’s that summer of the evening
C	           (D)        G
Get ready and roll the cassettes
D				Em
There’s boy’s outside preaching genocide
		C		D
And trying to think up some sort of threat
	C		G		    Em		   D
And the ladies in the cloakroom take no notice of me
Em		       C
I wish myself was back at home but there’s
D			G
Nothing safe in watching TV

[Verse 2] (Same chord structure as above
There’s something born tomorrow
That I lost when I was out for a drink
How many gangs is it gonna take
To change the way I think
It takes more than good intentions
And a big bloke on the door
And though it’s never the same after the first time
That doesn’t stop them coming back for more

[Outro]
Em	                    C	      G
Fighting in the dance halls happens anyway
Em	G	C	G
Sometimes it makes me stop and think
Sometimes it makes me turn away
Sometimes it makes me stop and think
Sometimes it makes me turn away
Sometimes it makes me stop and think
Em	G	C	(D)	G
But most times it makes me run away


Please rate.
All the best.
T.
