Intro:
E - A7 - E - A7 (etc.)

E          A7            E            A7
Me and the Major could become close friends cause we
E          A7                E         A7
Get on the same train and he wants to talk to me
E          A7            E            A7
Me and the Major could become close friends cause we
E          A7                E
Get on the same train and he wants to talk
               F#m                  A                 E        A7 - E - A7             
But no there's too much history too much biography between us

Me and the Major don't see eye to eye on a
Number of things he'll take a guy like me and then
Me and the Major don't see eye to eye on a
Number of things he'll take a guy like me
And put him in the army 'cause the Queen's own army makes a man of you

F#m
He doesn't understand and he doesn't try
   A
He knows there's something missing and he knows it's you and I
          C#m
We're the younger generation we grew up fast
        B
All the others did drugs
                         F#m
They're taking it out on us
                         A
They're taking it out on us
                         E      A7 - E - A7 - E - A7 - E - A7
They're taking it out on us

Me and the Major are from different worlds but if
I get stuck in the lift it's always with a toff
Me and the Major are from different worlds but if
I get stuck in the lift it's always with a man
Of noble standing who looks down on me like I was never born

I think the Major's going quite insane he goes
Along the pavement and comes back again oh yeah
I think the Major's going quite insane he goes
Along the pavement and comes back again
Like he is on parade he is on parade at least he thinks so

F#m
He's swapping his tent for a sheltered home
   A
He doesn't have a family, he is living alone
     C#m
He remembers all the punks and the hippies too
         B
And he remembers Roxy Music in seventy-two
   F#m
He doesn't understand and he doesn't try
   A
He knows there's something missing and he knows it's you and I
          C#m
We're the younger generation we grew up fast
        B
All the others did drugs
                         F#m
They're taking it out on us
                         A
They're taking it out on us
                         E    A7 - E - A7 - E - A7 - E - A7
They're taking it out on us

I want a dance I want a drink of whisky so I
Forget the Major and go up the town oh boy
I want a dance I want a drink of whisky so I
Forget the Major and go up the town
            F#m
Because the snow is falling
         A
Yeah the snow is falling...

Repeat F#m - A
