The Boy Done Good  Billy Bragg



st[Em]range as it may seem
I [D]once [C/G]had my football dreams
but I was always the l[G+6]ast one
the last to get cho[G]sen
when my cl[D]assmates picked their teams
I guess t[Em]hat was the way it stayed
[D] in [C/G]every game I played
life just [G+6]kicked me
and clattered and tr[G]ipped me
til you p[D]icked from the parade
now I f[Bm]eel like I've won the cup
every t[Em]ime that we make love
forty f[C/G]ive minutes each way
at halft[D]ime I hear a brassband pl[Bm]ay
the [C/G]boy done good
the g[D]irl done better
[Em]seasons turn[D], [C/G]we're still together
t[C/G]he sky's still blue
[D]tomorrow is another d[Em]ay [D]
You weren't that kind of a bird who
likes her studs to be covered in mud
Taking you to the pictures was a regular fixture
For one of life's eternal subs
I tried hard acting tough
but I just can't stand the taste of that stuff
Like some macho park player I got in the way of
In some grudge match against his pub
But I'm happier than I am today
now I've put my boots away
I guess I'll never get picked to play my
song on Match of the Day
