                   Must I paint you a picture
                        (Billy Bragg)
intro: C - G - Am

C           G         F
It's bad timeing and me
           G                          C
We find a lot of things out this way
And there's you
           F                  G
A little black cloud in a dress
C          G
The temptation
                Am           F
To take the precious things we have a part
     C             G    C
To see how they work
            G                          Am          F   C
Must be resisted for they never fit together again
G                       Am
If this is rain let it fall on me and drown me
G                     Am           G
If these are tears let them fall

                     C       G   Am
Must I paint you a picture
                    C       G   Am
About the way that I feel
                              C          Am   G
You know that my love for you is strong girl
                              C      Am   G
You know that my love for you is real
[ Tab from: ]
C            G               F
It took a short walk and a talk
                G                 C
To change the rules of engagement
               G                      F       G
While you searched frantically for reverse
C           G
And then claiming
        Am           F           C         A
That virtue never tested is no virtue at all
C      G                Am
And so I lost my ignorance
F-G                                  Am
   And now the bells across the river chime out your name
G                      Am    G
I look across to them again     (chorus)

Em                            C
All your friends sais come down

It will never fly

And on that imperfect day
We threw it all away
 Em                   Am
Crisis after crisis, with such intensity
F                                   G
This would never happen if we lived by the sea

C        G                       F
Most important decisions in life
               G                   C
Are made between two people in bed
          G                  F   G
I found that at my own expense
C            G
And when I see you
           Am             F             C         G      C
You juts turn around and walk away like we never met
   G                  Am      F
Oh we used to be so brave
G                             Am                      G
I dreamt the wolrd stopped turning as we climbed the hill
                       Am                            G
I dreamt impossible dreams that we were lovers still  (chorus)
