Admiral Fallow // Boots Met My Face // Subbuteo (Chords)

Chords are 100% correct and are in the same key as in the album. 
In the song the way 'Louis' plays the guitar is in a arpeggio style which can be 
slightly played to sound similar to the song by picking the chord notes.

E: 022100
C#m: x46654
  B: 224442
 B7: 224242
  A: x02220

Verse 1:

EHello, (022100@1)my chum
                                       C#m (x13321@4)It's me and I'm banging on your door
           BIt's (x2444x@1)been far too long
                                             ASince (x02220@1)we set the leaves alight down on the floor

EI've (022100@1)returned for a while
                                            C#mTo (x13321@4)the concrete that once claimed my knees
          BAnd (x2444x@1)the stones my hands owned
                                    AAs (x02220@1)I sent them toward windows and trees

Middle 8:

F#mTowering (244222@1)trees
           B (x2444x@1) -   B7 (x21202@1) -   ETowering (022100@1)trees

Verse: 2

EThere (022100@1)are bangers in the wheely bins
                                   C#mLazer (x13321@4)pens shone through the glass
    BAnd (x2444x@1)BB after BB fired
                                  AFrom (x02220@1)behind the wall beyond the grass

EAnd (022100@1)though boots met my face
                                        C#mAnd (x13321@4)knuckles cracked me black as coal
        BI (x2444x@1)care not for the mindless
                                 AWho (x02220@1)poked fear at my sorry soul

Middle 8:

F#mMy (244222@1)soul
     B (x2444x@1) -   B7My (x21202@1)soul

Verse 3:

EAnd (022100@1)I miss the rain on the roof
                                   C#mPitstop (x13321@4)paths and whistling streams
               BI (x2444x@1)miss the Coldstream chips
                                AThe (x02220@1)red subbuteo team painted green

EBuilt (022100@1)on back fields,
                              C#mIt (x13321@4)seemed a thorn in my child side
                   BInstead (x2444x@1)became a grit-soaked playground
                                  AWhere (x02220@1)the propers and the poor collide

         EOh, (022100@1)it might sound dull
                                  C#mBut (x13321@4)dull's sometimes all we have
           BYeah, (x2444x@1)it might sound dull
                         ABut (x02220@1)dull's all we ever have

          ESometimes (022100@1)I talk with the meter
                                   C#mOf (x13321@4)a bingo caller's east-end drawl
                  BWho (x2444x@1)cares; we're all just trying to float
             B (x2444x@1)               AWhile (x02220@1)everything seems set to fall

Middle 8:

F#mSo (244222@1)hard
 B (x2444x@1) -   B7So (x21202@1)hard

Ending is based around the main chords. To achieve end drum effect play 'C#m' once 
then into fret noise in time with the drum.
