 ----------------------

  A    [EADGBE]x02220
A(v) 577655
Bm x24432
E 022100
  [F#]D    [244322]x00232

(Intro on some keyboard stuff, you can just play A(v))

A(v)
1. If you're listening to this song
   You may think the chords are going [Bm]wrong
A(v)
But they're not he just wrote it like that.
A(v)
2. When you're listening late at night
   You may think the band are not quite [Bm]right
A(v)
But they are, they just play it like that

(Chorus)

   It [E]doesn't really matter what chords I play
   What [F#m]words I [F#]say or [Bm]time of day it [F#]is
   As it's [D]only a [A]Northern [E]song

(Play verse chords without lyrics: A(v) Bm A(v))

   It [E]doesn't really matter what clothes I wear
   Or [F#m]how I [F#]fare or [Bm]if my hair is [F#]brown
   When it's [D]only a [A]Northern [E]song.

A(v)
If you think the harmony
   Is a little dark and out of [Bm]key
A(v)
You're correct, there's nobody there.

(Play chorus chords without lyrics: E F#m F# Bm F#)
   And I [D]told you there's [A]no one [E]there.

(Fade out on verse chords: A(v) Bm A(v) Bm...)

Now for the Anthology II version:

The Anthology version has different words, here's my attempt at picking
these:

If you're listening to this song
You may think the chords are going wrong
But they're not, I just wrote it like that
When you listen late at night
You may feel the words are not quite right
But they are, I just wrote them myself
And it doesn't really matter what chords I play
What words I say or time of day it is
As it's only a Northern song.
It doesn't really matter what clothes I wear
Or how I fare or if my hair is brown
When it's only a Northern song.
If you think the harmony
Is a little off and out of key
Then you're right 'cos I sing it myself.


That's it. If you've got the keyboard part or the bass, I'd be grateful
to see it. Any comments, corrections etc, mail me.
