Once Upon A Time Chords

   
***ONCE UPON A TIME - by Jem Finer
from the album "Waiting For Herb"

Once Upon A Time - as perfomed by The Pogues

INTRO: E
E                       C#m
The hour's late and the lights are low
A                     B
I'm walking home just kicking stones
E                     C#m
I waited at the deopt you never showed
A                                 B
You missed the last bus hours ago
E                           C#m
I remember the first time I saw you on the street
E                       A
You looked so pretty my heart skipped a beat
                              B
I can't wait any longer but I still feel the heat
    E                        B
I'm down but I'm still on my feet

I walked on down the old fairground
Up from the docks blew a lonely sound
I sat for a while on the cold hard ground
Watched the stars slowly turn as the earth spun around
As the past falls behind up ahead there's a crack
Of light shining bright through the night so black
Like a runaway train rolling down the track
>From here there's no turning back

E
Listen to me baby Once upon a time
A                         B
My heart was an ocean You swam against the tide
E
The time is past for grieving My tears have all run dry
A                               B
I'll leave you with my love And now I say goodbye

E A E A

The bottles broke the glasses are cracked
The cards are all dealt and the chips have been stacked
The lamp shades busted and the curtains are torn
The door keeps knocking but there's nobody home
I stood by the road brushed a tear from my eye
Cursed the cars and the rain and the rolling grey sky
I turned around turned my back on that town
And I never looked back again

Listen to me baby...

E A E A B E C#m A B E B

Listen to me baby...

E A E A E A E A E A
