                             Poor Scouser Tommy - (Made famous by the KOP Choir)

Hello all of you Liverpudlians, I am a Liverpudlian myself and I feel kinda
sorry for the fact that this great chant hasen't got a chord or tab anywhere
on the net, so here it is. I have made it myself, so if you got any
corrections, please don't hesitate to contact me one way or another, so I can
fix it.
     As some of you may know, the song has originally originated from the two
traditionally songs: "Red River Valley" and "The Sash" but later on a last
verse was added due to the embarrasing win to our merseyside rivals, the end
verse just follows the Beatles song "All You Need is Love"

Tabbed by: Smithy JR

Tuning: Standard E (E-A-D-G-B-e)

A                    E         A
Let me tell you the story of a poor boy
Who was sent far away from his home
    A                           D
To fight for his king and his country
   A          E              A
and also the old folks back home.

A                    E          A
So they put him in a highland division
Sent him off to a far, foreign land
       A                                D
Where the flies swarm around in their thousands
     A          E                    A
and there was nothing to see but the sand.

A                      E          A
Well, the battle it started next morning
Under a Libyan Sun.
   A                          D
I remember that poor scouser Tommy
   A               E        A
he was shot by an old nazi gun.

   A                E         A
As he lay on the battlefield dying, dying, dying
with the blood gushing out of his head, of his head
   A                           D
As he lay on the battlefield dying, dying, dying
       A         E            A
These were the last words he said:-


Oh I am a Liverpudlian
                     Em7   D
and I come from the Spion Kop.
I love to sing, I love to shout
 G               Em     G
and I go there quite a lot, every week!.

We support the team that's dressed in red
                     Em   D
It's a team that you all know
It's a team that we call Liverpool

and to glory we will go.

We've won the league

We've won the cup
                  Em   D
We've conquered Europe too
And we played the toffees for a laugh
G               D         G
and we left them feeling blue, 5-0!


(For the next part I like to hit the guitar with my knuckles to get a hollow knock to 
follow the counting; but NO chords)

1, 2

1, 2, 3

1, 2, 3, 4


Rush scored one
Rush scored two
Rush scored three
And Rush scores four
La la la la

la la la

la la


G               A7  D7
All we need is Rush La la la la la
G               A7  D7
All we need is Rush
C           D7        G
Rush is all we need, Rush is all we need
G* (end of on A G-chord)
