Not too hard but I have gone into some detail about the strumming.


Standard Tuning

No capo (or to match your voice)

x = not played or muted
t = soft strum with thumb
f = flick with finger
p = pull off
h = hammer on


Chord progression 

|--0--x--0--0--0--x--0--0--||--1--3--0--1--1--0--1--1--||--2--0--0--2--2--0--0--2--||--2--0--2--3--2--0--2--3--||--0--2--2--3--0--2--2--3--||--x--3--0--x--x--3--0--x--|
More on the technical side, Dallas plays the lower strings of each chord with his thumb softer than normal then flicks the higher strings with his finger, looking something like this.
|-----0-----------0-----0-----0-----------0-----0--||-----1-----3-----0-----1-----1-----0-----1-----1--||--2--2-----0-----0--2--2--2--2-----0-----0--2--2--||--2--2--0--0--2--2--3--3--2--2--0--0--2--2--3--3--||--0-----2-----2-----3-----0-----2-----2-----3-----||--------3-----0-----------------3-----0-----------| t f t f t f t f t f t f t f t f
When strumming with the thumb try to strum only the two lowest strings but hitting the third is fine. And he usually changes into the last three chords in the progression like this.

LYRICS I've been walking in the same way as I did Missing out the cracks in the pavement And tutting my heel and strutting my feet "Is there anything I can do for you dear? Is there anyone I could call?" "No and thank you, please Madam. I ain't lost, just wandering" Round my hometown Memories are fresh Round my hometown Ooh the people I've met Are the wonders of my world Are the wonders of my world Are the wonders of this world Are the wonders I like it in the city when the air is so thick and opaque I love to see everybody in short skirts, shorts and shades I like it in the city when two worlds collide You get the people and the government Everybody taking different sides Shows that we ain't gonna stand shit Shows that we are united Shows that we ain't gonna take it Shows that we ain't gonna stand shit Shows that we are united Round my hometown Please comment and rate!
