This has been transcribed as I couldn't find any chord tabs that authentically 
captured Chrissie's rhythm guitar on this song.

TUNING:
Standard Tuning.


Intro:
G C/G G C/G G C/G 
G Am7 B7 Am7 B7


Verse 1:
B7   		  G 		                C/G   	     
It's such a drag, to want something sometime,
C/G       Dsus4/D                    B7  
One thing leads to another, I know.
G                            C/G         Dsus4/D   B7
Was a time I wanted you for mine, nobody knew.
B7   		           G 		         C/G     
You arrived like the day, passed like a cloud,
C/G      D                    C/G   Dsus4/D 
I made a wish.  I said it out loud,
D         C/G       C/G       Dsus4/D
'Loud in a cr-o-wd.  Everybody he-a-rd,
D		C/G         Dsus4/D    Am7 B7
'Twas the talk of the town.


Verse 2:
B7   		  G 		               C/G  	
It's not my place to know what you feel,
C/G       D                       B7   
I'd like to know but why should I.
G                   C/G        Dsus4/D   B7
Who were you then, who are you n-o-w.
B7   		           G 		  C/G 
Common labourer by night, by day highbrow
G			  C/G           Dsus4/D  B7
Back in my room, I wondered then I
C/G      D                    C/G   Dsus4/D 
Sit on the bed, look at the sky,
D         C/G       Dsus4/D
Up in the sky, clouds rearrange
D		C/G        Dsus4/D    Am7 B7
Like the talk of the town.


Chorus:
G          D    C/G        
Maybe tomorrow, maybe someday.
G          D    C/G        
Maybe tomorrow, maybe someday.
C/G             G D                     C/G    
You've changed, your place in this world.
C/G             G D                     C/G  Am7 B7
You've changed, your place in this world. 
  

Verse 3:
B7   		  G 		                C/G 
Oh, but it's hard to live by the rules,
C/G     Dsus4/D                      B7 
I never could, and still never do.
G                   C/G           Dsus4/D   B7
The rules and such never bothered you,
B7   		           G 		  C/G
You call the shots and they follow.
G			  C/G             Dsus4/D   B7
I watch you still from a distance then go
C/G      D                 C/G  Dsus4/D 
Back to my room, you never know.
D         C/G       C/G    Dsus4/D
I want you, I want you but now,
D		C/G      Dsus4/D    Am7 B7
It's the talk of the town.


Repeat Chorus:
G          D    C/G        
Maybe tomorrow, maybe someday.
G          D    C/G        
Maybe tomorrow, maybe someday.
C/G             G D                     C/G    
You've changed, your place in this world.
C/G             G D                     C/G  Am7 B7
You've changed, your place in this world.
