ME AND THE MAJOR
By Belle & Sebastian

>From the album 'If You're Feeling Sinister'
Transcribed by Ben Ufton
Submitted by Thelonius

Intro: (fast) with the harmonica going
duh d-d-duh d-d-duh d-d-duh on F#

F# - B

Verse 1:
F#         B             F#          B
Me and the Major could become close friends cause we
F#          B                F#        B
Get on the same train and he wants to talk to me
F#         B             F#           B
Me and the Major could become close friends cause we
F#         B                 F#       B
Get on the same train and he wants to talk
             G#m                      B                      F#
But there is too much history and too much biography between us

Verse 2:
Me and the Major don't see eye to eye on a
Number of things, he'll take a guy like me, and then
Me and the Major don't see eye to eye on a
Number of things, he'll take a guy like me
And put in the army
Cause the Queen's own army makes a man of you

Chorus:
       G#m
But he doesn't understand and he doesn't try
   B
He knows there's something missing and he knows it's you and I
          Ebm
We're the younger generation, we grew up fast
        C#
All the others did drugs
                         G#m
They're taking it out on us
                         B
They're taking it out on us
                         F#
They're taking it out on us

Verse 3:
Me and the Major are from different worlds but if
I get stuck in a lift it's always with a toff
Me and the Major are from different worlds but if
I get stuck in a lift it's always with a man
Of noble standing who looks down on me like I was never born

I think the Major's going quite insane he goes
Along the pavement and comes back again, oh yeah
I think the Major's going quite insane he goes
Along the pavement and comes back again
Like he is on parade, and he is on parade
At least he thinks so

Chorus:
Now he is swapping his tent for a sheltered home
He doesn't have a family and he is living alone
He remembers all the punks and the hippies too
And he remembers Roxy Music in '72

But he doesn't understand and he doesn't try
He knows there's something missing and he knows it's you and I
We're the younger generation, we grew up fast
All the others did drugs
They're taking it out on us
They're taking it out on us
They're taking it out on us

I want a dance, I want a drink of whisky so I
Forget the Major and go off to town
Because the snow is falling
I want a dance, I want a drink of whisky so I
Forget the Major and go off to town
            G#m
Because the snow is falling
    B
The snow is falling
Falling, falling, falling, falling, falling, falling.
