VERSE ONE
       G5        G         G5/F#     Em7
with a red scrunchie for a birthday gift
    C                      D         Dsus4
she pulls her hair into a croydon face-lift
G5           G    G5/F#    Em7
punch drunk love at sweet sixteen
     C                D     Dsus4
she thumbs a ride to Gretna Green
        G5        G      G5/F#      Em7
leaving something old for somewhere new
          C                  D       Dsus4
to be with some one battered black & blue
G5       G                 G5/F#   Em7
turns her light out with a song to sing
        C                   D     Dsus4
grabs her shoulder bag & her Argos ring
& she said

CHORUS*
G5               G5/F# Em7
without a penny            in my pocket
   C              D
I'm outta luckin this kind of town
G5            G5/F# Em7
but I got you           right by my side
     C
so I won't let them
D                                 G5 G5/F# Em7
 no I won't let them drag me down----
C                   D                                G5 
Em7
so I won't let them no i won't let them drag me down----

SECOND VERSE:

he turned from Jack the lad into Jack the dad
his heart was pure but his town was mad he had a
broken heart from a broken home
she heard his breaking voice thru a broken phone
he said for you I'd walk a Swedish mile
for a Glasgow kiss & a Chelsea smile
so he drove 'til it was morning light
the birds will sing him to sleep tonight
& he said (go to chorus)

*note about the chorus:
since all the chords are really easy to change from one to another, it was quite hard to 
how i play them. this is an interpretation but it sounds really good for all of us who 
play uke.s! l.o.l.
