Verse 1

Em                   G
High on the mountain stands a boat
D                 Bm
But are they gods or real folk?
Em                    G
We can't see the fire but we smell the smoke
D                       Bm
Who'll take the plough? Who'll be the yoke?
Em                G
Night after night I don't believe
D               Bm
We are the ones you won't deceive
Em          G
Not a thing will you achieve
D              Bm
'cos we belong and we won't leave

Chorus:

Em       G
Trouble, trouble
D                      Bm
I try to chase trouble but it's chasing me
Em       G
Trouble, trouble
D            Bm
Trouble with a capital T

Verse 2

Em                   G
Lay down your silver and your gold
D             Bm
I'm a man who can't be sold
Em                G
And, even when my heart grows cold
D               Bm
I'll curse your evil stranglehold
Em                    G
The waves are running much too high
D                Bm
It's got so dark can't see the sky
Em                     G
But a change is coming by and by
D                Bm
A time to laugh, a time to die

Chorus

Em       G
Trouble, trouble
D                      Bm
I try to chase trouble but it's chasing me
Em       G
Trouble, trouble
D            Bm
Trouble with a capital T

Been so long away from home

Moving on and all alone

High on the mountain stands a boat
D                 Bm
But are they gods or real folk?

We can't see the fire but we smell the smoke

Who'll take the plough? Who'll be the yoke?

Not sure about the guitar solo as it sounds a bit dodgy against the studio version but 
perfect with live versions. Also when he plays it live, he uses some bends at the start 
the solo.

Enjoy :)
