“Another Country”

 Roj Vincent

Intro:   Em D Em D Em 
Like everybody else, I like a night on the town.
    C Em 
I love a bella vino when the sun goes down.
       D A Em Bm 
But unfortunately, one thing has led to another (yes it has).
 Em 
I've struggled more than once to put the key in the door,
 G C Em C A 
Fallen flat on my face on the disco floor,
        D A D Em 
But if I die, I'm gonna die laughing. (Now listen)
 Em 
I've sung and I've danced in the streets of Paree,
 G C 
Discovered my trousers up an old oak tree,
       D A 
I've walked half naked through the hotel continental. (But you know what)
 Em A Em 
I'm glad I did what I did when I did it,
 A Em 
Make no mistake about that.
          A Bm 
And i'm glad I said what I said when I said it, Oh yeah.
             C G 
It was the drink that made me do it.
    D Em 
I know sometimes I blew it.
             C G 
It was the drink that made me do it.
        Bm 
Every time, Every time.

Instrumental break:   Em Bm Em Bm Em 
I've skipped a light fandango, and I've lost my socks.
 C 
Even spent the night in a telephone box.
       D Em 
I'm a sucker when I hear "one more for the road."
 G Em D 
I've woken up with women that I hardly knew,
 C Em 
Wine is the cause of silly tattoos.
 D Em 
I've raised hell, where hell didn't need no raising.
          A Em 
But I'm glad I did what I did when I did it,
 A Em 
Make no mistake about that.
          A Bm 
And I'm glad I said what I said, Oh yeah.
             C G 
It was the drink that made me do it.
      D Em 
Sometimes I guess I blew it.
             C G 
It was the drink that made me do it.
        Bm 
Every time.

Oh yeah

Break:   Em A Em Bm Em 

Ahh yeah

 G Em 
So, the moral of the story. Stick to tea and cakes.
        C A 
If ya take to the drinking you're gonna make mistakes
 D A Em 
I wouldn't change a thing, if I could do it again. (No I wouldn't)
             C G 
It was the drink that make me do it.
      D Em 
Sometimes I knew I blew it.
             C 
It was the drink that made me do it.
         Bm D Em 
Every time. Every time.
     D 
Oh yeah
           Em 
Blame the drink

“ Another Country”

Intro chords:  Bm Em C G Em G D G C G D 
I was just a little boy without care

     Em G Em Am D 
I remember looking up and seeing you there

         C Bm Am 
I never wandered too far from your sight

                 G C Am D 
'Cause all the love I needed was there in your eyes

          G D 
We grew up in a war zone city with a cast iron wind

         Em Am D 
Broken lives, darken streets, and twisted steel

       C G D Am 
But around our house the sky seems so blue

           Em C D 
And on a wing and prayer we just muddled through

 Bm C G D Em 
And we always kept the laughter and the smile upon our face

          C G D Am 
In that good-old-fashion British way with pride and faultless grace

 G C G D Em 
I shall never forget those childhood days for as long as I shall live

           Am G D G 
And I'll always find my way back, always find my way back home

 G 
Tell me why in wars that made our family strong

          Em G 
As our defiant little island weathered the storm

        C G Am 
There never seemed enough on my plate

               Em C Am D 
You said be grateful, say grace, don't complain

      C G D Em 
How can I ever thank you for the lessons that I've learnt

           C G D Am 
And the precious warmth and comfort that I've felt at every turn

 Bm C G D Em 
And for those that sacrificed their lives for freedom and for peace

         Am G D G 
I will always find my way back, always find my way back home

 Em D C G 
I'll give you stories, of raging, burning skies

          D C G 
And our nation with its back against the wall

         Em D C G 
Like a wide-eyed school boy I hang on every word

 Am D 
Stories I was too young to recall

          C G D Em 
And we always kept the laughter and the smile upon our face

          C G D Am 
In that good-old-fashion British way with pride and faultless grace

 G C G D Em 
I shall never forget those childhood days for as long as I shall live

           Am G D 
And I'll always find my way back, always find my way

         C G D Em 
And we always kept the laughter and the smile upon our face

          C G D Am 
In that good-old-fashion British way with pride and faultless grace

 Bm C G D Em 
I shall never forget those childhood days for as long as I shall live

           Am D G 
And I'll alwa

On this beautiful beautiful morning here with you      

Verse 1
 C                                                  
Driving down the highway on a Friday evening 
 Am G F                      
Me and my lady heading' south for the weekend
 C                                                   
Early start left the city behind us 
 Am F C Am G F 
Good to be together there's a lot we gotta discuss oh yeah

Verse 2
 C                                                                             
Pulled into Starbucks for a doughnut and a coffee 
 Am G F 
That's when I noticed it was all around me
   C                                                                     
A new day dawning and it's gotta be a winner 
 Am F C 
Roll out the summer we're tired of winter
 G Em                 
See that sun coming over the hills 
 G Em 
See that Heaven true to feel 
 F G                         
Bluebirds singing not a cloud in the sky

Oh my God ain't it good to be alive

Chorus

Verse 3
 C                                                                    
No hesitation when we check into our hotel 
 Am G F 
Down by the ocean 'bout a mile out of Frisco
 C                                                                      
Far 'cross the bay in a room with a sea view 
 Am G F 
Lots of sexy lovin' on our personal menu
 G Em                                 
Don't you worry 'bout unpacking your case 
 G Em   
Get down to the beach feel the sun on your face

Seagulls singin' not a cloud in the sky

What a wonderful day to be alive

Bridge
 F                                                                                                   
This week is gonna go real fast 
                                 C 
Let's make every minute last oh yeah 
 F

                                      D G  
We could get drunk and all fall down most of all no regrets

Cant Stop Me Now chords – Rod Stewart V2

 Can't Stop Me Now - Rod Stewart

 Roj Vincent

Standard Tuning


Intro -   C Am Dm C     (x 2)

    C
I stood up straight and sang for the record company man

     Am
My enthusiasm filled the room

       C
I was young and I was keen with the devil in my stream

       F C
As I hollered out an old blues tune

      Am G
We can't sign you son 'cause you don't fit in the mould

           F
It's your hair and your nose and your clothes

         C Dm
I said thank you gentlemen for this opportunity

      F G
And moved on down the road


I remember I used to say


(Chorus)

       C Am
They can't stop me now, the world is waiting

     F C
It's my turn to stand out in the crowd

       C Am
They can't stop me now, the tide is turning

     F C
I'm gonna make you proud

     C Am F C
So proud .... so proud

             C
Well it was rough and it was tough but I couldn't get enough


         Am
Of this rhythm and blues I craved

        C
I was singing in the pubs, singing in the clubs

        Dm C
Then along came Maggie May

 Am Dm
All the things they said to me and all the things I heard

         F
I had a point to prove – Oh yeah

        C Dm
I will climb this mountain with this God given gift

             F G
If it's the last thing that I do


And I remember thinking


(Chorus)

 G Dm
Born to ramble, born to sing

      C G
In a new world of rock and roll

 G Dm
One man in particular filled my heart with pride

         F G C
And he fired up my soul             Oh Yeah

 C
Thanks for the faith

 Am
Thanks for the patience

 F C
Thanks for the helping hand

 C
Thanks for the love

 Am
Thanks for the guidance

 F C
Thanks for the tartan pride
