The Wombats - 1996

After watching some of their performances I have noticed that Mathew doesn't use a capo, 
so this is the chords without a capo.

1996

VERSE 1

E                        B
I had no cares in the 1990s
G#m               F#
I knew of no downfalls
E                                   B
Though war was breaking out all around me
G#m                         F#
My concerns were with prank calls

E
She kissed me on the cheek, she kissed me on the cheek
B         G#m                 F#
Right in front of the older kids
E                                 B
When our self belief, our self belief
         G#m                    C#
Wasn't scarred by the modern itch
C#
Cos now it feels like...

CHORUS

E                 B
We kiss with one eye on our TV set
G#m              B
And the more I give the less I get
E                 B
Needing fairground rides just to spark a smile
G#m                     F#
There's little here to miss...

             E
Bring back 1996
B           G#m
Bring back 1996
F#                               E
So hard to beat those teenage kicks
B            G#m    F#
Bring back 1996


VERSE 2

E                                B
We were cloning sheep in the 1990's
G#m                     F#
We were building telescopes
E                                   B
And sugar filled the whole of my body
G#m                   F#
As I urged it on to grow

E
I kissed her on the cheek, I kissed her on the cheek
B       G#m                 F#
Just to impress the older kids
E                                 B
When my self belief, my self belief
        G#m                  C#
Wasn't lost in the modern glitch
C#
Cos now it feels like...

CHORUS

E                 B
We kiss with one eye on our TV set
G#m              B
And the more I give the less I get
E                 B
Needing fairground rides just to spark a smile
G#m                     F#
There's little here to miss...

             E
Bring back 1996
B           G#m   C#
Bring back 1996

BRIDGE

E                      B
Stop talking, stop talking
G#m                     F#
I need a lover not a friend tonight
E                   B
I'm leaving, I'm leaving
G#m                       C#
I'm not cut out for the modern life
