/ The Levellers / Levelling the Land (1992) / Fifteen Years guitar tab

From: Sagi Assaf 

Chords for : Levellers - Fifteen Years
--------------------------------------

Opening : Am Am G Am
Verse :
  Am
I never was a violent man
         G                       Am
Said the man in the bar with his head in his hands

He's trying his best to understand
    G               Am
The cause of his dismay

But years of gin have broken him
And left him cold where he fitted in
And it's too late now to turn around
And find another way.

Chorus :
        Dm                       F
All the laughs in the late night lock-in
     Am             G
They fade away when he gets in
    Dm                F
The girl from fifteen years ago
    Am
Has packed and gone away.

Verse :
That's never how it used to be
What happened to all that energy ?
You took one too many liberties
I'm tired of being afraid

So after a fight she took flight
Hiding swollen eyes and a wounded pride
The best years of her life denied
And sold for liquid shares.

Chorus :
And the laughs in the late night lock-in
They fade away when he gets in
The girl from fifteen years ago
Has packed and gone away.

Bridge :
        Am              G
And the victims of this world
        Am            G
They're advertised on posters
       Am                 G
Just a beach and a pretty girl
Am                 G
You just take this potion.

Verse :
It's another week 'till his cheque comes through
He's got a fiver left now to spend on food
But the doors of the bar are open
And he breaks another rule

He sits on the stool that bears his name
He's got a favorite glass now that's called the same
And he's never been kept waiting
'Cause he pays the landlord's wage.

Chorus :
And the laughs in the late night lock-in
They fade away when he gets in
The girl from fifteen years ago
    Am               G
Has packed and gone away
All the laughs in the late night lock-in
They fade away when he gets in
The girl from fifteen years ago
Has packed and gone away.
