Don't Look Back In Anger

Words & Music:



C               G           Am

Slip inside the eye of your mind.

          E7             F     G

Don't you know you might find

                  C    Am  G

A better place to play?

C             G           Am

You said that you'd never been,

            E7                 F    G           C

But all the things that you've seen slowly fade away.



F                Fm              C

So, I start a revolution from my bed.

F                            Fm              C

'Cause you said the brains I have went to my head.

F                Fm              C

Step outside the summertime's in bloom.

G                                 G#

Stand up beside the fireplace and take that look from off your face.

Am                    G             F     G

'Cause you ain't ever gonna burn my heart out.

C   G         Am        E7             F             G          C

So, Sally can wait, she knows it's too late as we're walking on by.

C   G            Am        E7         F                G          C

Her soul slides away, "But don't look back in anger," I heard you say.


Take me to the place where you go.

Where nobody knows if it's night or day.

Please don't put your life in the hands

Of a Rock and Roll band who'll throw it all away.



    F                                    Fm                         C

But don't look back in anger, donŐt look back in anger, I heard you say.
