VERSE 1
 
Em                      D
She says he's gone away on a short holiday
   Em                  D
He won’t be back for a while
    Em                          D
The twelve from the bench stood up and hesitated
         Em                       C  Bm
he’ll be leaving right after this trial
 
 
VERSE 2
Em                              D
Circumstance, evidence who can cheat providence
   Em                        D
He wished he could go back again
  Em                    D
A flick of the wrist he wished that he missed
    Em                   C  Bm
Not guilty is all he can say

CHORUS
G
Pass ‘round the gossip now
D
Let’s wait and see
G
Pass ‘round the tray now
D
Let’s have some tea
   G
My boys haven’t seen him
          D
He’s been working away
G
Don’t bother looking
     D          A
He’s not home today
A
Not home today
 
Em    D/E    Em    D/Em
 
VERSE 3
Em                            D
T-shirts and badges with free tickles and smudges
       Em                          D
In the end you’ll believe what you feel
     Em                       D
When ten hands are aiming and no-one is complaining
     Em                     C   Bm
In a sense it could be more real
