ST SWITHINS DAY by Kirsty MacColl (written by Billy Bragg)

                C      G
Thinking back now
          F		C		G
I suppose you were just stating your views
		C    G
What was it all for
        F		C	G
For the weather or the battle of Agincourt
F                                    G
And the times that we all hoped would last
 	Am 			F
Like a train they have gone by so fast
              F                     C           G
And though we stood together at the edge of the platform
		C    	    G
We were not moved by them

 		C    G
With my own hands
    	  F		C     G
As I make love to your memory
		C   G
It's not the same
		F		C    G
I miss the thunder I miss the rain
F                                    G
And the fact that you don't understand
 	Am 		F
Casts a shadow over this land
             C      G		C	G
But the sun still shines from behind it

Thanks all the same
But I just can't bring myself to answer your letters
It's not your fault
But your honesty touches me like a fire
The polaroids that keep us together
Will surely fade away
Like the love that we spoke of forever
On St. Swithins Day
