Bragg Billy – Levi Stubbs Tears tab

Intro

Bm   F#m   G   A


VERSE 1
         Bm
With the money from her accident

    A                       D      D/C#
She bought herself a mobile home

      A                           G
So at least she could get some enjoyment

              Bm      Bm A
out of living alone

             G                         D
No one could say she was left upon the shelf

    A
Its you and me against the world she mumble to herself

CHORUS

C*  G*   D*  A*    C*  G*    D*   B*

         C*          G*    D*         A*      Bm     Bm A
When the world falls apart somethings stay in place

G            A                   Bm    F#m
Levis Stubbs tears roll down his face

VERSE 2

    Bm                 A                    D      D/C#
She ran away from home in her mother's best coat
        A                      G                Bm     Bm  A
She was married before she was even entitled to vote

        G                        D
And her husband was one of those blokes

             A                      Bm
The sort who only laughs at his own jokes

    G                     D
The sort that a war takes away

               A
And when there wasn't a war he left her anyway

CHORUS (omit F#m)

BRIDGE

D      A             G       A
Norman Whitfield and Barratt Strong

    D            A          Bm
Are here to make right everything that's wrong

D           A                  G      A
Holland and Holland and Lamont Dozier too

    A (hold)
Are here to make it okay with you

VERSE 3

Bm                A                  D    D/C#
One dark night he came home from the sea

          A                 G                    Bm   Bm  A
And put a hole in her body, where no hole should be

            G                               D
It hurt her more to see him walking out the door

                A
And though they stiched her back together they left her heart in
              Bm      Bm A
pieces on the floor


         G                 A                  Bm     Bm A
When the world falls apart somethings stay in place

          G
She takes off the Four Tops tape
A                       Bm      Bm  A
and puts it back in its case

         G                 A                  Bm  Bm   A
When the world falls apart somethings stay in place

G            A        Bm     Bm A
