Rie Fu - London chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
I've been sad over the lack of love on the interwebs and UG for this beautiful song.
chords are based on the live version, lyrics from the album version.

it's not perfect, but close enough to fudge it. hopefully somebody can improve on it eventually.

Capo 2

G                                C
The air was dry in London, I was on the bus to Holborn
G                                 C
The orange light upon the eye was getting in my way
G                  C
Everybody's saying What (are) you going to do afterwards?
G                                    C~    ~G   C
What (are) you going to do after you graduate?


G
The air was dry in London,
      C
I was watching the cars and the taxis that go by
G                                 C
The orange light upon the eye was getting in my way
G                   C
Everybody's running Everybody's standing still
G                       C ~G  D
Everybody's waiting for you


C                               D
Get on the westbound, change at Baker Street station,
C                           G  D
Buskers keep on playing the day
C                               D
The smell of beers and bottles, roses and regattas,
C                        G  D
Doves and newspapers fly away


C
And We'll be walking down the river,
D
pretty houses down the stream
C                                   D
Look down at the pavement, and it's looking back at me
C                               D
Time goes by so slowly, no long distance calls to blame
C                     D~  G
Yes, you have made my day!


G                                C
The air was dry in London, I was on the bus to Old Street
G                                 C
The orange light upon the eye was getting in my way
G                   C
Everybody's running Everybody's speeding up
G                              C~G (D)
But I'm right here waiting for you

C                                D
Get on the southbound, change at Waterloo station,
C                            G  D
Men in suits are playing the day
C                              D
The smell of cigarettes on the tip of my hair
C                        G  D
Doves and newspapers fly away


C
And We'll be walking down the river,
D
pretty houses down the stream
C                                   D
Look down at the pavement, and it's looking back at me
C                               D
Time goes by so slowly, no long distance calls to blame
C                     D~  G
Yes, you have made my day!


C                           D
Get on the rapid train, I'm running late again
C                            G  D
Men in suits are playing the day
C                               D
The smell of beers and bottles, roses and regattas,
C                        G  D
Doves and newspapers fly away

C
And we'll be laughing as we walk on,
D
making plans upon our dreams
C                              D
The wishes come together as we pave our roads so free
C                               D
Time goes by so slowly, no long distance calls to blame
C                     D  G
Yes, you have made my day!
