D7 And I said, ?I?veG a little money and a take away curry. Bm CI?m on my way home to my wife D GShe?ll be lining up the cutlery, you Bmknow she?s expecting me, CPolishing the glasses and out the cork?. D GAnd I?m down in the tube station at midnight. BmOooooooooooh C D I first felt a fist And then a kick, I could now smell their breath, They smelt of pubs And Wormwood scrubs and too many right wing meetings. My life swan around me in its own existence The smell of brown leather, it blended in with the weather, It filled my eyes, ears, nose and mouth, It blocked my senses Couldn?t see, hear, speak any longer. And I?m down in the tube station at midnight. Oooooooooooh I said I was down in the tube station at midnight. Oooooooooooh The last thing I saw as I lay there on the floor Was ?Jesus saves? painted by an atheist nutter And a British rail poster read ? have an awayday a cheap holiday, do it today? I glanced back on my life and thought about my wife Cause they took the keys and she?ll think its me And I?m down in the tube station at midnight. Oooooooooooh The wine will be flat and the curry?s gone cold I?m down in the tube station at midnight. Oooooooooooh Don?t wanna go And I?m down in the tube station at midnight. OoooooooooohStandard guitar tuning:EADGBENo capo
