The Boy Done Good

Billy Bragg

 Em
strange as it may seem
 DC/G
once had my football dreams
 G+6
but I was always the last one
 G
the last to get chosen
 D
when my classmates picked their teams

 Em
I guess that was the way it stayed
 DC/G
   in every game I played
 G+6
life just kicked me
 G
and clattered and tripped me
 D
til you picked from the parade

 Bm
now I feel like I've won the cup
 Em
every time that we make love
 C/G
forty five minutes each way
 DBm
at halftime I hear a brassband play

(chorus)
 C/G
the boy done good
 D
the girl done better
 EmDC/G
 seasons turn,  we're still together
 C/G
the sky's still blue
 DEmD
 tomorrow is another day         

You weren't that kind of a bird who
likes her studs to be covered in mud
Taking you to the pictures was a regular fixture
For one of life's eternal subs

I tried hard acting tough
but I just can't stand the taste of that stuff
Like some macho park player I got in the way of
In some grudge match against his pub

But I'm happier than I am today
now I've put my boots away
I guess I'll never get picked to play my
song on Match of the Day

(chorus) x 2
