Englishman In New York (Sting)

Transcribed by Alexander Alabin for Guitar 6 string - Standard (E-A-D-G-B-E)   .


Em7 A Bm7 I don't drink coffee I take tea my dear
Em7 A Bm7 I like my toast done on one side
Em7 A Bm7 And you can hear it in my accent when I talk
Em7 Bm7 I'm an Englishman in New York

Em7 A Bm7 See me walking down Fifth Avenue
Em7 A Bm7 A walking cane here at my side
Em7 A Bm7 I take it everywhere I walk
Em7 A Bm7 I'm an Englishman in New York

Em7 A Bm7 Oh-oh, I'm an alien I'm a legal alien
Em7 A Bm7 I'm an Englishman in New York
Em7 A Bm7 Oh-oh, I'm an alien I'm a legal alien
Em7 A Bm7 I'm an Englishman in New York

Em7 A Bm7 If, 'Manners maketh man' as someone said
Em7 A Bm7 Then he's the hero of the day
Em7 A Bm7 It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile
Em7 A Bm7 Be yourself no matter what they say

Em7 A Bm7 Oh–Oh, I'm an alien I'm a legal alien
Em7 A Bm7 I'm an Englishman in New York
Em7 A Bm7 Oh-Oh, I'm an alien I'm a legal alien
Em7 A Bm7 I'm an Englishman in New York

D D/F# A7 Modesty, propriety can lead to notoriety
Bm F#7 You could end up as the only one
G A Gentleness, sobriety are rare in this society
A#dim7 Bm At night a candle's brighter than the sun
(solo interlude)

Em7 A Bm7 Takes more than combat gear to make a man
Em7 A Bm7 Takes more than a license for a gun
Em7 A Bm7 Confront your enemies, avoid them when you can
Em7 A Bm7 A gentleman will walk but never run

Em7 A Bm7 If, 'Manners maketh man' as someone said
Em7 A Bm7 Then he's the hero of the day
Em7 A Bm7 It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile
Em7 A Bm7 Be yourself no matter what they say (repeat the last line with the chorus)

I'm an alien I'm a legal alien
