Town Called Malice

Paul Weller

 BBBB
 D#m7
 You'd better stop dreaming of the quiet life
 C#m
 cos it's the one we'll never know
 D#m7
 And quit running for that runaway bus
 C#m
 'cos those rosey days are few
 ED#m7
 And stop apologising for the things you've never done
 F#
 'cos time is short and life is cruel, but it's up to us to change
x x x (knock on body of guitar)
this town called
 BE6
 malice      Yeah-eah-eah
 BBBB
Verse 2:
 D#m7
 Rows and rows of disused milk floats
 C#m
 stand dying in the dairy yard
 D#m7
 And a hundred lonely housewives
 C#m
 clutch empty milk bottles to their hearts
 ED#m7
 Hanging out their old love letters on the line to dry
 F#
 It's enough to make you stop believing when tears come fast and furious in a town called
 BB
 malice,     Yeah-eah-eah
 BB
 This town called
 BB
 malice,     ooh-ooh-yeah
 BB
 Verse 3:     
 D#m7C#m
 Ba ba ba ba bada ba, ba ba bada baa oh
 D#m7C#m
 Ba ba ba ba bada ba, ba ba bada baa oh
 ED#m7
 Struggle after struggle, year after year
 F#
 The atmosphere's a fine blend of ice, I'm almost stone cold dead in a town called
 BE6
 malice,     Yeah-eah-eahB

 Bridge:                                
 A#mG#m
 whole street's belief in Sunday's roast beef
 A#mG#m
 Gets dashed against the Co-op

 E
 To either cut down on beer or the kids new gear
 F#
 It's a big decision in a town called malice.
 BBBB
 Verse 4:                             
 D#m7C#m
 The ghost of a steam train, echoes down my track

 D#m7C#m
 It's at the moment bound for nowhere, just going round and round
 E
 D#m7Playground kids and creaking swings, lost laughter in the breeze
 F#
 I could go on for hours and I probably will, I'd sooner put some joy back in
x x x (knock on body of guitar)
this town called
 BB
 malice,     Yeah-eah-eahB
E6 This town called
 BB
 malice,yeah Ooh-ooh-yeah
