Part A (0:00 - 0:22)


	D                     Gbm
		He spends his time

 	                G
	or maybe half of his time

	                            Bbdim.
	or part of the time wandering

	           D                 Gbm               Em
	'round the creeks and cobble stones of hackney lanes


	D                          Gbm
		with a tear in his eye

	       G                                    Bbdim.
	as the children walk by, he's thinking of a song

	     D                Gbm          Em
	then stops to paint a picture of a frown

	Gb        F
	walking around


Part B (0:23 - 0:40)


	Em	Cm	Gm	Gb   F

	Em	Cm	Gm	Gb   F

	Em


Part A (0:41 - 1:02)


	D                    Gbm
		Dan Treacy's smile

  	         G                                         Bbdim.
	leaves you trying to decide who's the victim, what's the crime?

 	  D
	no rest for the mind

	       Gbm         Em
	that's seen it all before


	D                                 Gbm
		and I don't know where he lives

  	         G
	but he's a myth of a man

	                  Bbdim.
	and Texas Bob the cameraman

	   D              Gbm             Em
	is off to fix his seat before the show

	          Gb           F
	yeah, but where did he go?


Part B (1:03 - 1:14)


	Em	Cm	Gm	Gb   F

	Em	Cm	Gm	Gb   F


Part C (1:15 - 1:32)


	   Dbm            A
	To know when your time's up

	    B                  E               Abm       Bm
	you flip the glass and watch the hours quickening

	   A        Am
	oh oh oh oh oh


	       Dbm         A
	In the back of the station

	     B              E                  Abm       Bm
	fluorescent lights about to quit their flickering


Part D (1:33 - 1:42)


                A
	Well he speaks his mind

                B
	he says "What is crime?"

            Bm
	Dan Treacy's eyes


Part A (1:43 - 2:01)

Note:
The chords from "In the middle..." to "...lark" are not actually played in the song, but
for things like acoustic covers I thought it might be helpful to include them, so I did.

	D                            Gbm
		In the middle of the park

	         G
	when the underground is dark,

	                   Bbdim.
	he's a poet he's a lark

	          D                Gbm               Em
	He starts thinking about a place that no one knows


	D                               Gbm
		And when the creeks run dry

	         G
	he stays frozen in time

	                      Bbdim.
	strange lights in the sky

	      D
	start blinking

	              Gbm
	I can see the car outside 


Part E (2:02 - 2:11)


	Em
	But he's listening, ooh ooh ooh ooh

	Abm
	he's listening, ooh ooh ooh

	Bm
	he's listening, ahh ahh ahh

	         A
	and he's making up his mind


Part C (2:12 - 3:09)

Note:
The lyrics and instrumentation of this second Part C are different,
however the chords remain the same.

	He made his mind up

	   B                   E	Abm	Bm	A  Am

	B               E	  Abm	Bm	A  Am
	yeah he's gonna let it go


	Dbm         A
	He made his mind up

	B               E              Abm	Bm	A  Am
	in the park and at the station


	Dbm         A
	He made his mind up

	B                E	     Abm	Bm	A  Am
	yeah, he's gonna get it done


	Dbm         A

	Dbm         A
	He made his mind up

	B	         E            Abm	Bm


Part F (3:10 - 4:09)

	A                              B
	yeah, he's gonna let it go, uh oh

	              Gbm
	no matter the time

	   B
	oh oh

	         Gbm
	when the creeps run by

	   B
	oh no

	                Gbm
	he's making his mind up

	      B
	oh oh oh oh

	Gbm                              B
	yeah he's gonna get it done whoa oh

	   Gbm                                B
	oh yeah, when the creeks run dry whoa oh

	Gbm                            B
	yeah, he's gonna listen to his soul,

	Gbm
	yeah, when the creeps walk by and say

	Cdim.
	"Come here boy, look me in the eye"

	bow to the heart, back to the beat of

	E
