Chris De Burgh - Nothing Ever Happens Round Here
 
 
INTRO: G C G C G
 
                      D
She was a girl from a one horse town
C                  G      D      G
The only place for miles around
                    D
Cutting hair in the modern style
C              G       D      
Putting in the nine to five
     C                      G             C
But, every night it was the same old drea-eam
                  G   D
On the cover of a magazine
   C                          G
She looked good, but it could never come true
       C            D             Em
'cause nothing ever happens round here
C            D             G
Nothing ever happens round here
 
 
                    D 
She had a boyfriend in the town
C                      G        D      G
He spent his days just messing around
                 D
Stick shifts and steering wheels
C              G     D      
Motorbikes and automobiles
    C                       G            C
And, every night it was the same old thi-ing
                    G         D
Meet the boys for a couple of drinks
C              G
Shoot pool and talk about girls
    C            D             Em
And nothing ever happens round here
C            D             G
Nothing ever happens round here
 
   
CHORUS:
                                  C
They said nothing, no nothing, no nothing
G            D             G
Nothing ever happens round here
                        C
Nothing, no nothing, no nothing
G            D             G
Nothing ever happens round here
 
 
             D
One day in a local bar
C                         G             D     G
She heard a movie man was looking for a star
                     D
And everybody in the whole damn town
C               G       D      
Got the call to come on down
    C                  G          C
And, when she walked into the roo-oom
                 G           D
Every heart went boom, boom, boom, ("Who's that girl?")
C                         G
"She's exactly what we're looking for!"
    C            D             Em
But nothing ever happens round here
C            D            G
Nothing ever happens round here
 
 
CHORUS:
                                  C
They said nothing, no nothing, no nothing
G            D             G
Nothing ever happens round here
                        C
Nothing, no nothing, no nothing
G            D             Eb
Nothing ever happens round here
 
 
BRIDGE:
And so she took a screen test
Bb
No doubt that she was the best
F                            D
The camera fell in love with her
Eb                         D
Before she knew it she was on the way
                        G    C  G  C  G
To make that dream come true
 
 
                    D
Now she's living in Hollywood
C                 G       D     G
And everything is looking good
                     D
She thinks about the folks back home
C                 G    D      
And her boyfriend all alone
    C                 G                    C
But, every night it's still the same old thing
                    G         D
Meet the boys for a couple of drinks
C              G
Shoot pool and talk about girls
    C            D             Em
And nothing ever happens round here
C            D             G
Nothing ever happens round here
 
 
CHORUS:
                                  C
They said nothing, no nothing, no nothing
G            D             G
Nothing ever happens round here
                        C
Nothing, no nothing, no nothing
G            D             G
Nothing ever happens round here
                        C
Nothing, no nothing, no nothing
G            D             G
Nothing ever happens round here
                        C
Nothing, no nothing, no nothing
G            D             G
Nothing ever happens round here
