Town Called Malice
The Jam

Enjoy!

                                      |__________|
                                       also outro
                                       over D riff

Verse:
F#m                                                 Em
Better stop dreaming of the quiet life cos it's the one we'll never know
F#m                                             Em
And quit running for that runaway bus cos those rosey days are few
G                            F#m
And stop apologising for the things you never done
A riff
Time is short and life is cruel
                                             D riff
But it's up to us to change this town called malice.

F#m                                        Em
Rows and rows of disused milk-floats stand dying in the dairy yard
F#m                                          Em
And a hundred lonely housewives clutch empty milk bottles to their hearts
G                                  F#m
Hanging out their old love letters on the line to dry
A riff
It's enough to make you stop believing when tears come fast and furious
                 D riff
In a town called malice, yeah

F#m                  Em
Ba ba ba ba bada ba, ba baba bada ba (x2)
G                        F#m
Struggle after struggle, year after year
A riff
The atmosphere's a fine blend of ice
                                            D riff
I'm almost stone cold dead in a town called malice

(Bridge)
F#m (once)         F#m-Fm-Em (once)          Em-Fm
A whole streets belief in Sunday's roast beef
F#m (once)       F#m-Fm-Em (once)
Gets dashed against the Co-Op
A
To either cut down on beer or the kids new gear
                                           D riff
It's a big decision in a town called malice

F#m                    Em
Ghost of a steam train echoes down my track
F#m                                 Em
It's at the moment bound for nowhere just going round and round
G                                    F#m
Playground kids and creaking swings, lost laughter in the breeze
A riff
I could go on for hours and I probably will but,
                                                 D riff
I'd sooner put some joy back in this town called malice.

Outro/D riff
Town called malice
Oooh yeah, town called malice etc.
