      Hello wonderful world of music its crazy Dave here y'know Barrett
      ive been searching the net for this song for time and i couldnt believe that i
      could not find it so in the end 
      like any great musician i just sat down and worked it out.
       You wont believe how simple it is just 3 basic chords for this great Levellers clasic.


                                    G 320033         F 133211          C 032010

         verse 1

                 C                                                   F            C
         There was Robbie Jones he used to walk so tall y'know he'd hurt no one at all

               C                                        G                     C
         he'd chase the girls around the world, dance them round the dance halls 

               C                                   F           C
         he'd have a drink and then he'd sink into nustalgic talk, 

                C                                     F                     C
         we'd carry him home in the falling snow when he was too drunk to walk

                F          C           F     C       
            Then came the day we were sent away 
                        F       C                 G
           we got our papers posted through the door

            and sent off to war


                      C                              F             C                    
              Dear old Tom he'd sing a song and he'd play the guitar

                    C                             G                C
              he'd tell us all his storys of his travels near and far

                    C                                         F              C
              he singed up one day to learn a trade but that dream didnt go far

                     C                               G             C   
               he'd be fighting Argentinians with a gun not his guitar

                    Then just repeat the chorus a few more times 
            loop, simer, stir and hey presto another classic, 
            i know its hard to believe but it really is as simple as that
                         i hope this gives you hours of fun.

                   with all my six string love this WAS Crazy Dave y'know Barrett
