These Streets

Paolo Nutini

 DF#mGA
Cross the border, into the big bad world
 DF#m
Where it takes you about an hour just to cross the road,
 GA
Just to stumble across another poor old sole,
 DF#m
From the dreary old lanes to the High St madness,
 GA
I fight with my brain to believe my eyes
 DF#m
And it's harder than you think to believe this sadness,
 GA
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

 DF#m
These Streets, have too many names for me
 GA
I'm used to Glenfield Road and spending my time down in Orchy
 DF#mGA
I'll get used to this eventually I know, I know

 DF#mGA
Where'd the days go when all we did was lay
 DF#m
And the stress that we were under wasn't stress at all,
 GA
Just a run and a jump into a harmless fall
 DF#m
From walking by a high-rise to a landmark square,
 GA
You see millions of people with millions of cares
 DF#m
And I stuggle to the train to make my way home
 GA
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.

2x

These Streets, have too many names for me
 GA
I'm used to Glenfield Road and spending my time down in Orchy
 DF#mGA
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

Searching for the change I've lost somehow

I know, I know

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