G  E7sus4  C  D7sus

G                     E7sus4               C
       They're comin' down the street
               D7sus                         G
They're comin' right down the middle
              E7sus4            C
Look how they keep the beat
               D7sus                  Em
Why they're as blue as the ocean
        Bm7                C
How the sun shines down
               G
How their feet hardly touch the ground

G              E7sus4                  {Fill}      C
       Here come the black-and-whites
              D7sus           G
Here come the motorcycles
                E7sus4        {Fill}    C
Listen to those engines roar
                  D7sus
Now they're doin' tricks for the children
    Em                 Bm7 
              Oh, they look so nice
   C                                  G
          Looks like angels have come down from Paradise
Am7  Bm7         C    D7sus    G  E7sus4  C    D7sus
       Jolly Coppers     On Parade

Em           Bm7   
         Oh, mama
C                        G
     That's the life for me
 Am7     Bm7    
   When I'm grown
           C   D7sus       G   E7sus4  C  D7sus
That's what I      want to be

G                        E7sus4          {Fill}    C            
          They're comin' down the street
               D7sus
They're comin' right down the middle
G                       E7sus4          {Fill}    C
          Look how they keep the beat
                   D7sus
Coming through the heart of the city
Em                    Bm7
            Oh, it's all so nice
C                               G
    Looks like angels have come down from Paradise
Am7  Bm7         C    D7sus    G  E7sus4
       Jolly Coppers     On Parade
Am7  Bm7         C    D7sus    G  E7sus4  C    D7sus

Repeat main progression to fade.

D7sus:    000210

|--2s4s2--0--2----------------------|

There is an electric guitar in the end playing a simple G (xxx033).
Most of the chords during the main progression will sound better
if you stick to the middle four strings, or add a high or low G.

That's how I play my favourite Randy Newman song. Enjoy
