Yours Truly, Confused N10
Ray Davies  2002

Em/F#m   riff  

     G                           F#m
Dear sir or madam, I don't normally write to the press 

        Bm                               G
But the neighbourhood where I grew up is really quite depressed. 

  Em                         F#m
Society is crumbling but the media's obsessed 

     Em / F#m X8
with boobs, bums, Dot-com millionaires, fame, fashion, FTSE shares 

But people they couldn't care less. 

While parliamentary yobbos shout abuse around the house 
Do-gooders and reformers lead our nation to defeat. 
While murderers and terrorists get compassionate release 
You're out now. You're back on the street yeh, back on the street. 

       G       Em         G      Em        Em/F#m  ( riff )
That's why I remain yours truly, confused N10. 

D                            Bm                       Bm/A/D
I close my eyes and lay back and I think of England. 
D                            Bm                                Bm/A/G
I dream about that green and pleasant land we knew as England. 
G                                   Em
That throne of kings, that sceptred isle set in a silver sea 
G                                Em
Has turned into a laughing stock divided without harmony. 
G              Em                          Em/F#m X8
That's why I remain yours truly, confused N10 

The burglars have ransacked all the houses in the street 
While Mercs and Posches double park with sheer impunity. 
When towed away the ponces plead to all and sundry 
Referee what about me? 

So forgive my lack of confidence and total low esteem 
But the dog eat dog society has deemed us all has-beens. 
While our smiling bland spin doctors slyly lead us down the track 
to a stab in the back. 
G               A/G                     A/G
I'm much too terrified to go out at night but the television's boring. 
They're vandalising all the cars on the street 

D               Bm       Bm/A/D----D/G/Bm
but I won't lay down and take defeat. 
G      Em  G   Em   Em/F#m  ad lib
That's why I remain yours truly, confused N10 

Thank you goodnight

From: Don Davis Date: July 14, 2006 I like this song enough to submit some corrections. The chords in the beginning and all the other interludes should be changed from Em F#m to G A. The second and last chord in each verse MUST be changed from F#m to F#7. There is never a F#m in the song. Also, the Bm in the verse is followed by a Bm/A. Not as important, but the G is followed by a quick G/F#.
