How To Play

Sax intro
Em
 
 
VERSE 1
 
Em
Arlington house, address: no fixed abode
   C                             Em
An old man in a three-piece suit sits in the road
Am                   F         Am                     F
He stares across the water, he sees right through the lock
     Am             F
But  on and up like outstretched hands
Am                     F
His mumbled words, his fumbled words, mock
 
 
Sax
Em
 
 
VERSE 2
 
Em
Further down, a photo booth, a million plastic bags
C                               Em
And an old woman filling out a  million baggage tags
    Am                   F         Am             F
But when she gets thrown out,      three bags at a time
    Am                 F              Am
She spies the old chap in the road to share her bags with
F
She has bags of time
 
 
[Middle]
 
  Am9                 Bm    Am9              Bm
Surrounded     by his past, on a short white line
Am9                      Bm           Am9         Bm
He sits while cars  pass either side, takes  his  time
Dm        Am       Dm          Am
Trying to remember one  better day
Dm       F               G
A while ago   when people stopped to hear him say
 
C                  F         C        F
Walking  round you sometimes hear the sunshine
C               F             C              F
Beating down in time with the rhythm of your shoes
 
Sax I
Em
 
 
VERSE
Em
Now she has walked enough through rainy town
C                             Em
She rests her bag against his and sits down
      Dm        Am       Dm         Am
She's trying to remember one better day
Dm        F              G
A  while ago when people stopped to hear her say
 
 
CHORUS
C                   F         C        F
Walking   round you sometimes hear the sunshine
C                F            C              F
Beating down in time with the rhythm of your shoes
C                  F         C        F
Walking  round you sometimes hear the sunshine
C               F             C              F
Beating down in time with the rhythm of your shoes
Eb               F        Eb                  G
The   feeling of arriving when you've nothing left to lose
 
 
CHORUS
C                   F         C        F
Walking   round you sometimes hear the sunshine
C               F             C              F
Beating down in time with the rhythm of your shoes
C                  F         C        F
Walking  round you sometimes hear the sunshine
C               F             C              F
Beating down in time with the rhythm of your shoes
Eb              F        Eb                  G
The  feeling of arriving when you've nothing left to lose
