Thanks to whoever posted Smiths/Morrissey chords. We need more!

Here are the chords to 'The Last of the Famous International
Playboys' by Morrissey:

Before you learn this song you are REQUIRED to know who the Krays are.
Twin brothers, gangsters in London in the swinging sixties. Very much
alive and very much in prison right now. (Maybe of them is dead
now.Not sure.)  In any case, one of them just published a book last
year.
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/m/morrissey/last_of_the_famous_international_crd.html ]
Great celebrity figures in their day - no anonymous underworld for
them! Known as popular casino proprietors, party hosts, rubbed elbows
with the rich and famous and were photographed with near-royalty.  Yet
they were horribly violent, unpredictable and fearsome. One of them
was distinguished from the other by his serious mental disorders and
his taste for young men. 

There was a movie about them a couple years ago. Haven't seen it.


section 1 is D and G repeated over and over
section 2 is G C A C

[1]
Dear hero imprisoned
with all the new crimes that you are perfecting

[2, twice]
I can't help quoting you
for everything that you say rings true, 
and now

[1]
in my cell
well, I followed you
and here's a list of who I slew
Ronnie Kray do you know my name?
Don't say you don't; please say you do
I am the last of the

[2]
famous international playboys
the last of the famous international playboys

[1]
and now in my cell
well, I loved you
and every man with a job to do
Reggie Kray do you know my name?
don't say you don't - please say you do
I am the last of the

[2]
famous international playboys
[repeat]

[1]
See, in our lifetimes those who kill
the news world hands them stardom
and these are the ways on which I was raised
These are the ways on which I was, which I was raised
I never

[2]
wanted to kill
I am not naturally evil
Such things I do, just to make myself more attractive to you
Have I failed?

The last of the famous international playboys...


Simple enough, innit?
