“A Bloomin’ Balladeer!” – a song.

“A Bloomin’ Balladeer!”

G

Everywhere I go

C.

The people tell me: “No!

D C G

Don’t you come round here

D C

You’re a bloomin’

G

balladeer!”

Em

“No!” I said

C

“I’m just a simple poet.”

D

And they said; “Oh!

C G

Wouldn’t you bleedin’ know it!

D C

It’s really gone downhill,

G

Around here.

D

You’re no better than a

C G

busker on the pier!”

Em

“On the beer?”

(No chords)

“No, a busker on the pier;

Can’t you even hear;

D C

A poet is no better

G

Than a busker on the pier.”

NB or PS

A bit ‘Jake Thackray’ in places – but, that’s not a bad thing. You have to imagine the voices of the townsfolk – they are a bit peeved at the newcomer (a nod to my new location). G:)
