I promised chords. Therefore, here Chords. Roughly:
Intro: C G x3 F G C Am On the bleakest day autumn could muster F G In a church to to which they’ll not return C Am I thought back to a time I could trust her F Am G To a time when there wasn’t John Byrne F G And in a cruel twist of fate which so often F Am G Occurs in tales such as this C Am I found myself catering reception F Am G And there were urges I had to resist C Am F G Not least because John Byrne is much fitter C Am F G And the straightener to him holds no fears C Am F Am And if the chocolate in the fountain tastes bitter F G C It’s because its been laced with my tears C G x 4 C Am Celebrations were well underway when, F G Her father prayed silence and spoke, C Am He said: “I'm not so much losing a daughter…” F Am G As violently starting to choke F G And in a gesture which said “I’m fast fading, F Am G Could somebody dial 999?” C Am He valiantly toasted my capers F Am G In that which he thought to be wine C Am F G It was gone half past ten before folk cottoned on C Am F (pause) By which time I’d landed in Wick Solo: C (whisted: Here comes the bride G C All dressed in White) Am D G (funeral march) C Am F G So if what’s in the fondue’s to die for C Am F G It’s got nothing to do with the cheese C Am F Am And if whats in the punchbowl seems lethal F G C It’s because its two thirds anti-freeze. G C G C G F G C G C
A full mix of this will follow, since I have all the parts sketched out. I just need to rebuild my studio into a usable form.
Oh, and yes. In the video I'm playing with a capo at fret 4 - two full tones up from the original.
