Wishing the Days Away  Billy Bragg

' ' ' '|' ' ' '|' ' ' '|' ' ' '|'
[C] [F] [C] [G] [C] [C] [G]  
Verse 1:
On mon[C]day I wished it was tuesday night
So I could [F]wish for the [G]weekend to [C]come
On [C]tuesday I wished that the night would pass
So I could [C]call you [G]on the [Am]phone
Now a [F]man can spend a [C]lot of time
Wondering [Am]what was on jack [C]ruby's mind
And [F]time is all I [Em]have without you [Dm]here[G]
Verse 2:
On [C]wednesday when you hung up
It was as [F]much as [G]I could [C]do
To [C]stop from wishing thursday
Would [C]pass so [G]quickly [Am]too
They're [F]out there making [C]history
In the [C]lenin shipyards to[F]day
And [F]here I am in the [C]hammersmith ho[Am]tel
[G]Wishing the days a[C]way
Verse 3:
[C]Wasn't it a shock to find
The [F]king was [G]human [C]too?
[C]Still I think he understands
Much [C]more of [G]me than you [Am]do.
It [F]seems a proper [C]shame to steal,
His [C]clothes but not his [F]crown,
[F]Here I am in the [C]Hammersmith [Am]hotel,
[G]Singing the government [C]down
Verse 4:
There's [C]always room for one more soul
[F]Down in the [G]human [C]zoo
[C]I don't want you to come here though
I [C]want to come [G]home to [Am]you
[F]Somebody's knocking [C]at the door
Its [C]later than I [F]think
And it's [F]time to put on these [C]stinking [Am]clothes
And [G]get out there and [C]stink
Verse 5:
On [C]friday I wished there was something more
To be [F]seen in the [G]letters you [C]send
On [C]saturday I wished it was sunday
Oh will this [C]torment [G]ever [Am]end
Some[F]times I get a [C]notion to put a [F]torch
To the tools of my [F]trade
[F]Here I am in the [C]hammersmith ho[Am]tel
[G]Wishing the days [C]away
