How To Play

Capo:1st fret

INTRO
C C G C
 
 
VERSE
              C
With laughing eyes I do recall
      G                      C
Every face that crammed this hall
            C
And in this room our hats were hung
               G                      C
And words were written and songs were sung
 
 
CHORUS
       F                C
And we held our glasses high
       F        G            Am
And we dared to reach for the sky
       Dm               Am
And we never would grow old
                Dm F C
When we were the new boys
 
 
VERSE
             C
And on these streets we were like kings
              G                  C
We'd roll and tumble, fight and sing
             C
And in these smoky pubs the yarns were spun
                G                  C
And many a sweetheart was lost and won
 
 
CHORUS
             F                          C
And on these green fields we played for pride
           F      G        Am
No quarter given, no compromise
        Dm                 Am
We were lovers and we were sons
                Dm F C
When we were the new boys
                Dm F C
When we were the new boys
 
 
VERSE
            C
Behind this cellar door on cheap guitars
              G                    C
We played our blues till the early hours
       C
No one listening but a few old friends
         G                     C
We never dreamed it could ever end
 
 
CHORUS
             F                    C
This was our moment, this was our space
           F          G              Am
This was a jewel of a time to have graced
            Dm                 Am
But they're all sweet memories now
                Dm F C
When we were the new boys
                Dm F C
When we were the new boys
 
 
BRIDGE
G      Am             F
All my life I've been running
                      C
down the side of this hill
G                      Am
But way down deep in my heart
               F        C       F
don't want the water to ever be still
 
 
VERSE
          C
All these friends have long since gone
          G                     C
Blown and scattered like autumn leaves
         C
Some are lawyers and some are thieves
         G              C
Some are now behind the sun
 
 
CHORUS
         F               C
But I'll never, never be afraid
         F      G      Am
From the cradle to the grave
             Dm                      Am
I learned my lesson and I learned it well
                Dm F C
When we were the new boys
                Dm F C
When we were the new boys
 
C C G C

OUTRO
       F                C
And we held our glasses high
       F        G             Am
And we dared to reach for the sky
       Dm               Am
And we never would grow old
                Dm F C
When we were the new boys
                Dm F C
When we were the new boys
                Dm F C
When we were the new boys
                Dm F C
When we were the new boys
