These Streets  Paolo Nutini



[D]            [F#m] [G]       [A] 
Cross the border, into the big bad world
[D]                                      [F#m] 
Where it takes you about an hour just to cross the road,
        [G]                    [A] 
Just to stumble across another poor old sole,
[D]                              [F#m] 
From the dreary old lanes to the High St madness,
[G]                        [A] 
I fight with my brain to believe my eyes
    [D]                           [F#m] 
And it's harder than you think to believe this sadness,
   [G]                              [A] 
It creeps up my spine and haunts me through the night

[Bm7] 
Life is good, and the girls are gorgeous,
[G] 
Suddenly the air smells much greener now
[Bm7] 
And I'm walking around with a half pack of cigarettes
[A] 
Searching for the change I've lost somehow

[D]                 [F#m] 
These Streets, have too many names for me
[G]                                     [A] 
I'm used to Glenfield Road and spending my time down in Orchy
[D]                   [F#m]        [G]     [A] 
I'll get used to this eventually I know, I know

[D]         [F#m]   [G]                 [A] 
Where'd the days go when all we did was lay
[D]                                      [F#m] 
And the stress that we were under wasn't stress at all,
[G]                          [A] 
Just a run and a jump into a harmless fall
[D]                              [F#m] 
From walking by a high-rise to a landmark square,
        [G]                     [A] 
You see millions of people with millions of cares
[D]                                [F#m] 
And I stuggle to the train to make my way home
[G]                          [A] 
I look at the people as they sit there alone

[Bm7] 
Life is good and the sun is shining,
[G] 
Everybody floats to their ideal place
[Bm7] 
And the children all smile as the boats shuffle by them,
[A] 
Trying to pretend that they've got some space.

[D]                 [F#m] 
These Streets, have too many names for me
[G]                                     [A] 
I'm used to Glenfield Road and spending my time down in Orchy
[D]                   [F#m]        [G]     [A] 
I'll get used to this eventually I know, I know


[Bm7] 
Life is good, and the girls are gorgeous,
[G] 
Suddenly the air smells much greener now
[Bm7] 
And I'm walking around with a half pack of cigarettes
[A] 
Searching for the change I've lost somehow

Just fixed a bracket missing on the 3rd F#m preventing good display or transpo.
