The Pound Is Sinking  Paul McCartney

INTRO
| Em | % |
[Em] The Pound is sinking
[Bm] [Em] The Peso's falling
[Bm] [Em] The Lira's reeling
And [Am]feeling quite appalling
VERSE
[G] The Mark is holding[G/F#]
[Em] The Franc is fading
[Am] The Drachma's very weak
But [D]every[D/C]one's still [D/B]trading[D/A]
[G] The market's [F]bottom has fallen right [G]out
F | G F | G F | Em | Em7 |
And only the strong are survivors
INTERLUDE 1
Well, I [Em]fear my dear that it's eminently clear
C | Em |
That you can't see the trees for the forest
Your [Em]father was an ext[Am]raordinary man
But [D]you don't seem to have in[G]herited
5/8 5/8
C Em | C | Em |
Many of his mannerisms
5/8
[C]Oh, any of his mann[Em]erisms
VERSE
[G] The Dollar's moving[G/F#]
[Em] The Ruble's rising
[Am] The Yen is keeping up
Which [D]hardly [D/C]seems sur[D/B]prising[D/A]
[G] The market's [F]bottom has fallen right [G]out
F | G F | G F |
And only the stout are survivors
INTERLUDE 2
[Em]Hear me, my [B7]lover
I [Dm6]can't be held responsible [G7]now
For [D]something that didn't [A]happen
I [D]knew you [D/C]for a[D/B] minute[D/A]
[3/4]  
[G]Oh it didn't [Em]happen
[C]Only for a[Bm] minute
Your [Em]heart just wasn't [Bm7]in it any[C]more, mmh, mmh, mmh
OUTRO
[Em] The Pound is sinking
[Bm] [Em] The Peso's falling
[Bm] [Em] The Lira's reeling
And [Am]feeling quite appalling
