[G](intro)          [Bm]          [Em]       [Em7]          [C]          [C]
[G]I read the [Bm]news today, oh [Em]boy, [C]about a [Em]lucky man who [Am]made the grade [Cmaj7]
[G]And thought the [Bm]news were rather [Em]sad, [C]well I just [F]had to laugh [Em]     [E?]
[C]I saw the [F]photograph [Em]     [Cmaj7]

[G]He blew his [Bm]mind out in a [Em]car, [C]he didn't [Em]notice that the [Am]lights had changed [Cmaj7] [G]A crowd of [Bm]people stood and [Em]stared, [C]they'd seen his [F]face before [Em]Nobody was really sure if [E?]he was from the House of [C]Lords
[G]I saw a [Bm]film today, oh [Em]boy, [C]the england [Em]army had just [Am]won the war [Cmaj7] [G]A crowd of [Bm]people turned a[Em]way, [C]but I just [F]had to look [Em]Having [E?]read the [C]book I'd love to [Bm]turn .... [G]you .... [G?]on .... [E]
[E]Wake up, fell out of bed, dragged a combed across my [D]head Found my [E]way downstairs and [F[E]Grabbed my coat, and grabbed my hat, made the bus in seconds [D]flat Found my [E]way upstairs and [F [C]Ahhhhh... [G] [D] [A] [C]Ahhhhh... [G] [D] [A]
[G]I read the [Bm]news today, oh [Em]boy, [C]four thousand [Em]holes in Blackburn [Am]Lacanshire [Cmaj7] [G]And though the [Bm]holes were rather [Em]small, [C]they had to [F]count them all [Em]Now they know how many holes it [E?]takes to fill the Albert [C]Hall I'd love to [Bm]turn .... [G]you .... [G?]on .... [E]

Tip from Evert (Holland):
After the intermezzo (C-G-D-A C-G-D-A) I suggest you play: A-D-C-D G

turtle_plop (report)

yeah the E? is actually an Em7, or in this case Em7 (Type 2)

ebigham1 (report)

I think the E? chord is an E7 fingered like this.

All strings open except the A string is fretted on the 2nd fret
