How To Play

INTRO
Bm  Em F#m Bm  Em F#m
 
 
VERSE 1
   Bm           Em          F#m
He hums tonight through his street
   Bm                   Em     F#m
My unlatched window the tune repeats
    Bm                      Em           F#m
The kerb crawling car winds down to a stop
  Bm                       Em         F#m
A few seconds mumbled then whisks him off
 
 
CHORUS
Bm             C#7
Sick and tired of abuse
F#m                D
Controlled sign of hysteria
Bm            C#7
But like when dawn arrives
F#m          D          Bm  Em Bm  Em
He remembers his leisure
 
 
VERSE 2
   Bm           Em          F#m
He runs tonight through his block
  Bm                    Em        F#m
A crack in the curtains is unlocked
   Bm                       Em              F#m
No meeting with a mother or greeting a friend
  Bm                               Em          F#m
A sharp looking bootjack with some time to spend
 
 
CHORUS
Bm             C#7
Sick and tired of abuse
F#m                D
Controlled sign of hysteria
Bm            C#7
But like when dawn arrives
F#m          D          Bm  F#m
He remembers his leisure
 
 
BRIDGE
D7               F7
He cries tonight through his manor
Bb                       Am
I can see his conscience get the better
D7                        F7
From a doorway stepped in shadowed leather
Bb             Am               Bm            Em  Bm Em
Exchanging handshakes for money and pleasure
 
 
VERSE 3
   Bm             Em          F#m
He crawls tonight through his scum
       Bm               Em        F#m
From a dirty window his body’s numb
  Bm                          Em           F#m
Beneath the street lamp tilts shoulders bent
Bm                   Em
Meets his pickup who pays his rent
 
 
CHORUS
Bm             C#7
Sick and tired of abuse
F#m                D
Controlled sign of hysteria
Bm            C#7
But like when dawn arrives
F#m          D          Bm
He remembers his leisure
Em  Bm
His leisure
