Levi stubbs tears

Billy Bragg



 BmF#mGA
                  VERSE 1
 Bm
With the money from her accident
 ADD/C#
She bought herself a mobile home 
 AG
So at least she could get some enjoyment
 BmBmA
out of living alone  
 GD
No one could say she was left upon the shelf
 A
Its you and me against the world she mumble to herself
CHORUS
C* G* D* A* C* G* D* B*
C* G* D* A* Bm Bm A
When the world falls apart somethings stay in place
 GABmF#m
 Levis Stubbs tears roll down his face 
VERSE 2
 BmADD/C#
She ran away from home in her mother's best coat 
 AGBmBmA
She was married before she was even entitled to vote  
 GD
And her husband was one of those blokes
 ABm
The sort who only laughs at his own jokes
 GD
The sort that a war takes away
 A
And when there wasn't a war he left her anyway
CHORUS (omit F#m)
BRIDGE
 DAGA
 Norman Whitfield and Barratt Strong
 DABm
Are here to make right everything that's wrong
 DAGA
 Holland and Holland and Lamont Dozier too
A (hold)
Are here to make it okay with you
VERSE 3
 BmADD/C#
 One dark night he came home from the sea 
 AGBmBmA
And put a hole in her body, where no hole should be  
 GD
It hurt her more to see him walking out the door
 A
And though they stiched her back together they left her heart in
 BmBmA
pieces on the floor  
 GABmBmA
When the world falls apart somethings stay in place  
 G
She takes off the Four Tops tape
 ABmBmA
 and puts it back in its case  
 GABmBmA
When the world falls apart somethings stay in place 
 GABmBmA
 Levis Stubbs tears
