Capo: 2nd fret

For those who find the A B E D G D bit tricky: 

I play everything apart from D in as an e-shape barre chord. 
The G sounds much better as a barre chord anyway. 
It can be a little tricky, but it isn't too hard


A
when John he saw the numbers he lied
            D                           E
made up the whole thing, failed when he tried
   A
to cash in on his cautious new fame
           D                     E
always the numbers but never the name


A B E D G D

A B E D G D


A
We we hit the numbers we broke
             D                          E
broke in and changed them changed as we spoke
A
we knew that we would always be down
            D                E
hitting the numbers spun way 'round


A
and somebody beside you
                             D
slipped your head inside the crown
A
the princes of the paupers
D
and all the old showstoppers
                         E
till this moment's still unknown


A
sirens' songs have tried, too
                          D
yet, she takes you as her own
A
the princes of the paupers
D
and all the old showstoppers
                         E
till this moment's still unknown


A
and when he got the numbers he thought
               D                       E
thought of his friends who slowed to a halt
A
who had questioned to no avail
              D                      E
some knew the answers, some wouldn't tell


A B E D G D

A B E D G D


A
When Gabriel saw the numbers he fell
                 D                     E
fell through the clouds into the great well
A
but woke up before he hit the ground
           D                        E
no one had noticed still he looked around


A
and somebody beside you
                             D
slipped your head inside the crown
A
the princes of the paupers
D
and all the old showstoppers
                         E
till this moment's still unknown


A
sirens' songs have tried, too
                          D
yet, she takes you as her own
A
the princes of the paupers
D
and all the old showstoppers
                         E
till this moment's still unknown


A
with her hand to guide you
                       D
you are nothing if not home
A
the princes of the paupers
D
and all the old showstoppers
                           E
till this moment's still unknown
