Handyman Blues  Billy Bragg

These are the slightly weird chords;

[Cmaj9] [Am7] [Fmaj9] [D7]  
I'm [C]never gonna [Cmaj9]be the handy[Am]man a[Am7]round the [F]house my [Fmaj9]father [C]was
So [C]don't be [Cmaj9]asking me to [Am]hang a [Am7]curtain [F]rail for [Fmaj9]you, be[D7]cause
[Am]Screwdriver [Am7]business just [D7]gets me confused
[Am]It takes me [Am7]half an hour to [D7]change a fuse
[Am]And when I [Am7]flicked the switch the [D7]lights all blew
[F]I'm [Fmaj9]not your handy[C]man
[C]Don't be ex[Cmaj9]pecting me to [Am]put up [Am7]shelves or [F]build a [Fmaj9]garden [C]shed
[C]But I can [Cmaj9]write a song that [Am]tells the [Am7]world how much [F]I love [Fmaj9]you ins[D7]tead
[Am]I'm not [Am7]any good at [D7]pottery so let's [Am]lose the '[Am7]t' and just [D7]shift back the 'e'
And I'll [Am]find a [Am7]way to make my [D7]poetry build a [F]roof o[Fmaj9]ver our [D7]heads
[Am]I know it [Am7]looks like I'm just [D7]reading the paper
[Am]But these [Am7]ideas I'll turn to [D7]gold dust later
[Am]Cause I'm a [Am7]writer not a [D7]decorator?
[F]I'm [Fmaj9]not your [C]handyman
This is just my approximation of the way he plays this live. Seems OK to me but
please let me know if you can find any issues with it!
