I Was There At The Coronation

	  		

INTRO: Bb Bdim7 | F/C D7 | G7 C | F | 


            C                    F 
Well let me tell you, Ladies and Gents 
            C                     F 
I enjoyed myself to my heart's content 
            C                F 
I could not follow the procession  
                   C             F 
But I was there to see the coronation 
             C7           F 
I was there (at the coronation) 
             C7           F 
I was there (at the coronation) 


               C                F 
I took up my position at Marble Arch 
                 C                    F 
From the night before just to see the march  
                   C                     F 
The night wind was blowing, freezing and cold 
              C                      F 
But I held my ground like a young Creole 
             C7           F 
I was there (at the coronation) 
             C7           F 
I was there (at the coronation) 


         C                   F 
My stoic stand soon paid dividends 
               C                 F 
For I saw them coming around the bend 
          C                    F 
Then I perceived in all her glory 
           C                   F 
The golden coach with Her Majesty 
               C7           F 
She was there (at the coronation) 
             C7           F 
I was there (at the coronation)

         C                  F 
Her Majesty looked really divine 
               C                  F 
In her crimson robe furred with ermine 
                C                   F 
The Duke of Edinburgh dignified and neat 
                  C              F 
Sat beside her as Admiral of the Fleet 
              C7           F 
He was there (at the coronation) 
             C7           F 
I was there (at the coronation) 


             C                   F 
One thousand guardsmen marching ahead 
               C                    F 
Physicians and surgeons all in good stead 
              C             F 
All the Lords of the Admiralty 
               C                 F 
The War Office and the Air Ministry  
                 C7           F 
They were there (at the coronation) 
             C7           F 
I was there (at the coronation) 

      C               F 
Navy, Army, Royal Air Force 
                  C                 F 
Chiefs of staff, United Kingdom, of course 
          C                             F 
The Royal Horse Guards we had chance to see 
             C              F 
Escorted the Household Cavalry 
                 C7           F 
They were there (at the coronation) 
             C7           F 
I was there (at the coronation)

            C                 F

I was there (at the coronation) 

                    C           F 
The procession was about 50,000 strong 
                      C                 F 
It stretched for much more than 6 miles long 
            C                F 
Millions of people, all happily 
               C                   F 
Shouting three cheers for Her Majesty 
                 C7           F 
They were there (at the coronation) 
             C7           F 
I was there (at the coronation) 


                 C                F 
As I stood there looking rapturously 
              C                F 
A feeling of elation came over me 
            C                    F 
I felt what pleasure such beauty give 
                 C                F 
I shall never forget as long as I live 
             C7           F 
I was there (at the coronation) 
               C7           F 
We were there (at the coronation) 
             C7           F 
I was there (at the coronation) 
                C7           F 
Millions there (at the coronation)
