The Place I Love

Jam



The Place I Love
Paul Weller of the Jam
>From "All Mod Cons"
This is the improved version: new words and chord fix courtesy
of Davide Musiani
The opening riff is kinda like:
E -|---------------------
B -|---------------------
G -|---------------------
D -|---------------------
A -|--------7-5-7-5------
E -|---5-5----------7----  Repeated 8 times.

Then it goes into an A B E progression. 1 bar A, 1 bar B, two bars E.
I play it kind of ska-like because I can't quite get the
chunk-a-chunka rhythm from the record. Play the progression twice
and then over the verses.
 ABC
     The place I love is a million miles away.
 ABC
     It's too far for the eye to see.
 BmEAF#m
     Still it's me at least,   and you can't come there.
 ABC
     No one is allowed at all.
 BmEAF#m
     Only animals that love, will   always, only ever could be.
 ABE
     And  it's always in the back of my mind.
(riff 4 times)
 ABE
     The place I love is overgrown now,
 ABE
     with beautiful moss and colorful flowers.
 BmEAF#m
     And goldfish that swim in a pool,   theres a small brick wall
 ABE
     With neon lightings controlled by lightning.
 BmE
     I'm makin' a stand against the world
 AF#m
     There's those that would hurt us if they heard.
 ABE
     And it's always in the back of my mind.
(riff 4 times)
 ABE
     The place I love is nowhere near here.
 ABE
     Not within a yard of the trendy do's
 BmEAF#m
     Where dogsbodies pick you up,    and graciously give you a lift
 ABE
     with cherished thoughts and bitterness.
 BmE
     I'm makin' a stand against the world
 AF#m
     There's those that would hurt us if they heard.
 ABE
     And it's always in the back of my mind.
(riff 2 times)
 BmE
     I'm makin' a stand against the world
 AF#m
     There's those that would hurt us if they heard.
 ABE
     And it's always in the back of my mind.
