Standard guitar tuning:EADGBENo capo---------------------.............................
Verse 1I C7took out all the seats and away I went, Its a F7right old banger and the C7chassis bent. It's got a great big peace sign across the back, And F7most of the windows have been C7painted black. (Painted black).
Verse 2The C7windshields cracked, its a bugger to drive, It F7starts making smoke over C7forty-five. It's a C7phsychedelic nightmare with a million leaks, It's F7home-sweet-home to some C7sweet arse freaks.
Chorus 1C7 Slow down, I-F7tinerant child; the B♭7road is full of C7danger. C7 Slow down, I-F7tinerant child; there's B♭7no more welcome, C7stanger.
Verse 3C7 Soon I was rumbling through the morning fog, With my F7long haired children and my C7one eyed dog. With the C7trucks and the buses and the trailer-vans, My F7long throw horns playing C7Steely Dan. (Steely Dan).
Verse 4We C7straggled out for miles along the Beggars Hill, When the F7word came down that we'd C7lost Old Bill. You can C7bet your boots I'm coming when the times are hard, That's F7why they keep my dossier at C7Scotland Yard.
Chorus 2C7 Slow down, I-F7tinerant child; you're B♭7still accele-C7rating. C7 Slow down, I-F7tinerant child; the B♭7boys in blue are C7waiting.
BreakGm Itinerant Fchild, don't do what you're C7doing.Gm Itinerant Fchild, you'd better slow down.
Verse 5We drove C7into Happy Valley, seeking peace and love, With a F7lone helicopter hanging C7up above. We C7didn't realise until we hit the field, There were F7four hundred cozzers, holding C7riot shields.
Verse 6They C7terrorized our babies and they broke our heads, It's a F7stone fucking miracle there's C7no-one dead. C7 They turned my ramshackle home into a burning wreck, My F7one-eyed dog got a C7broken neck.
Chorus 3C7 Slow down, I-F7tinerant child; the B♭7road is full of C7danger. C7 Slow down, I-F7tinerant child; there's B♭7no more welcome, C7stanger. C7 Slow down, I-F7tinerant child; you're B♭7still accele-C7rating. C7 Slow down, I-F7tinerant child; the B♭7boys in blue are C7waiting.
