Fantastic song by TMTCH. Couldn't find the chords for this so I thought I'd have a go at 
it myself. I am aware that this is only a rough outline for the song,it is there to be 
improved on

Intro D A D A
D
Hey now Tommy have you got a new shirt
                      G      A
is it's colour a fine bright blue
D
Has your mother sent you off to your school
         C                    D
from the street with a pretty view
D
Shall we wrestle in the old school yard
               G        A
like the other children do
D
You can scuff your shoes,you can tear your hands
         C                  D
and I'll rip that shirt off you

D
Hey there Tommy since you moved away
                                   G       A
they've taken our town and they've made it new
D
Now there stands a chemical plant
          C              D
Where the cherry orchard grew
D
And I married Lucy from the back of our class
               G          A
who once wrote letters to you
D
And we've got kids and we send them to school
         C                    D
from the street with a pretty view

F                      Dm   F                      Dm
Oh oh in your shirt of blue,Oh oh in your shirt of blue

F                   C
Maybe Tommy,we grew up too quick
         Am                       G
from the fields where the flowers grow
       F                    C
From a butterfly stick to a baton and a brick
         Am               D
Changing uniforms far too soon

D
Hey there Tommy shall we meet again
                   G    A
in the morning wet with dew
D
Me at the gates of the colliery
                C        D
And you in your shirt of blue
D
Shall we wrestle in the muddy patch
               G        A
like the other poor men do
D
We can scuff our boots we can tear our hands
         C                  D
And I'll rip that shirt off you

F                      Dm   F                      Dm
Oh oh in your shirt of blue,Oh oh in your shirt of blue

F                   C
Maybe Tommy,we grew up too quick
         Am                       G
from the fields where the flowers grow
       F                    C
From a butterfly stick to a baton and a brick
         Am               D
Changing uniforms far too soon

F                      Dm   F                      Dm
Oh oh in your shirt of blue,Oh oh in your shirt of blue
F                      Dm   F                      Dm
Oh oh in your shirt of blue,Oh oh in your shirt of blue
F                      Dm   F                      Dm
Oh oh in your shirt of blue,Oh oh in your shirt of blue
