	  Ah! They don't make them like this anymore, a good old rock'n'roll tune with not 
one, but TWO lovely guitar solos to master... ENJOY! 

intro: A - F#m G (x8, bass enters 3rd time, keyboards enter 5th time, 
       drums enter 7th time) 

A                                    F#m G 
Bitching 'bout the things we've seen 
A                                 F#m G 
Bitching 'bout the things we'd be 
A                                  G F#m 
Bitching 'bout the loves we've had 
E                         G F#m 
My oh my it wasn't so bad 
E                                    G F#m 
When we had that to loosen our minds 
E                                         F#m  
Hey little baby in the front row, be kind 

 G   A                                      F#m 
(bar bitching) Telling you the gospel truth 
 G   A                                    F#m 
(bar bitching) Why don't you all go get screwed? 
 G   A                                         F#m 
(bar bitching) Why don't you tell me something new? 
 G   A                        F#m G 
(bar bitching) Yeah, bitching 

A                           F#m G 
Bitching 'bout the Windsor C 
A                             F#m G 
Bitching 'bout the Western Sea 
A                                       G F#m 
Why can't you all be like a Grainger man? 
E                    G F#m 
Or even a Pheland man? 
E                                        G F#m 
I'll tell you what we'll meet in Amsterdam 
E                                             F#m  
And then you'll see what should be really can 

 G   A                                      F#m 
(bar bitching) Telling you the gospel truth 
 G   A                                    F#m 
(bar bitching) Why don't you all go get screwed? 
 G   A                                         F#m 
(bar bitching) Why don't you tell me something new? 
 G   A                                                  F#m G 
(bar bitching) Yeah, bitching, that's what I'm talking about 

Got anything to say? No? Well, shut up... 

guitar solo (repeat chords A - F#m G, listen to the recording to get the bends 
right, he mainly bends the notes a semitone upwards):
