A homage to my favourite poet

lyrics

| C | C G | C | C C#dim |

| Dm7 | C | Am7 | G |
What's in that box? What's hiding in here? Pictures from Bedford, taken half a blue moon ago.
| Dm7 | C | Am7 | G | G |
My we were young then, all mix-tapes and alcopops,bum bags, shell suits and meatloaf CDs.
| F | E | Am | G |
Did I really dress like that and dance to that tune? Then stumble home drunk by the light of the moon.
| F | E | Am | G | G7 |
Guess times they change and the change times they guess and nonsense can still have a welcoming ring.

| C F | C G | Am Em | F G |
My Weezer cd's now they hardly get played, my obsession with Ani Difranco has faded,
| C F | C G | Am Em | F | G |
You might ask is anything certain these days, I would probably tell you that I love Leonard Cohen.

A snail carries with him some slime and a shell, I've got ten boxes plus cartons as well,
As these books, bags and a case my grandfather used in the war.
Did I really write those words and did she write back?
Stray hands in Row G all through that James Bond film.
Nonsense it still has a welcoming ring and heroes they still don't come easy.

Chorus

| C | C C#dim |
| Dm7 | C | Am7 | G | Dm7 | C | Am7 | G |

| F | E | Am | G |
Did I really dress like that and dance to that tune? Then stumble home drunk by the light of the moon.
| F | E | Am | G | G7 |
Guess times they change and the change times they guess and nonsense can still have a welcoming ring.
