The Other Side Of The World  George Formby
==========================================================================

VERSE 1

C                         Am
Now I had a notion, while crossing the ocean,
         C                      Dm
That the world was anything but small.
           G7                  C         Am
But when I landed here, it was soon very clear,
           G         D7         G7
That it’s not so     big after  all,

VERSE 2
                 C                          Am
Cos there’s your own kith and kin there to welcome you in,
       C                 Dm
On the other side of the world,
Dm                                          G7
There’s the same kindly folk, who crack the same kind of joke,
                         C
On the other side of the world

BRIDGE 1

    G7        C        C7                   F
And if   you  go for a stroll you’ll see a flag on the pole,
               D7                     G7
And meet the people who kept it un - furled
           C              G7               C       E7        A7
And when a couples honey –doving it’s the same old kind of loving,
       D7      G7         C      G
On the other  side of the world

VERSE 3

C                                          Am
Though we’re miles from our shore it’s like living next door,
         C               Dm
On the other side of the world,
                                         G7
We’ve the same kind of names and play the same kind of games,
                         C
On the other side of the world

BRIDGE 2

     G7       C          C7                   F
And when the trouble is thick, like glue to - gether we’ll stick,
          D7                   G7
And we’ll keep the old banner unfurled
          C           G7            C       E7         A7
So it’s a very happy meeting and I bring a special greeting,
          D7    G7          C
From the other side of the world

          D7    G7          C      G   C
From the other side of the world


Alternative “Farewell” Chorus

I’m going back home next week way over the foam, to the other side of the world,
Such nice people I’ve met I shall leave with regret, for the other side of the world,
And though the rations are short, but all the food that you’ve brought, have helped to 
keep the old banner unfurled,
So to you my thanks I’m tending for the parcels you’ve been sending, to the other side 
of the world

     E7       A          A7                   D
And when the trouble is thick, like glue to - gether we’ll stick,
          B7                   E7
And we’ll keep the old banner unfurled
          A           E7            A       C#7        F#7
So it’s a very happy meeting and I bring a special greeting,
          B7    E7          A
From the other side of the world

Alternative “Farewell” Chorus

I’m going back home next week way over the foam, to the other side of the world,
Such nice people I’ve met I shall leave with regret, for the other side of the world,
And though the rations are short, but all the food that you’ve brought, have helped to 
keep the old banner unfurled,
So to you my thanks I’m tending for the parcels you’ve been sending, to the other side 
of the world
