Intro

F Am B7M

Verse 1

Well, I Fheard the bells ringing, I was Amthinking about winning, in this B7MGod forsaken place. When my Fconfidence was well, Then I Amtripped and I fell, right B7Mflat on my face. Now I'm Fstanding erect, And I Amfeel like coming back and the B7Msun is shining gold. Put a Fsmile on my face, Get back Amin the human race and get B7Mon with the show.

Bridge 1

And I'm Ctaking in the Indian B7MSummer, And I'm Csoaking it up in my B7Mmind. And I'm pre-Ctending, that it's para-B7Mdise...

Chorus 1

On a golden Autumn Fday.B7M On a golden Autumn Fday.B7M On a golden Autumn Fday.B7M On a golden Autumn Fday.C

Verse 2

In the Fwee midnight hour, I was Amparking my car, in this B7Mdimly lit town. I was at-Ftacked by two thugs, Who Amtook me for a mug and shoved me B7Mdown on the ground. And they Fpulled out a knife, And I Amfought my way up as they B7Mscarpered from the scene. Well, this is Fno New York street, And there's no AmBobby on the beat and things ain't B7Mjust what they seem.

And I'm Ctaking in the Indian B7MSummer, And I'm Csoaking it up in my B7Mmind. And I'm pre-Ctending, that it's para-B7Mdise...

Verse 3

Who would Fthink this could happen, In a Amcity like this, among Blake's B7Mgreen and pleasant hills? And we Fmust remember, As we Amgo through September, among these B7Mdark satanic mills. If there's Fsuch a thing as justice, I could Amtake them out and flog them, in the B7Mnearest green field. And it Fmight be a lesson, To the Ambleeders of the system, in this B7Mwhole society.
