Chords for "80 Days"

80 Days


Intro:  G  C  G  C (2X)


In 80 days I am condemned to write this book

But still so much is missing, I have a thread but still no hook


Perhaps I'll find a way inside my mind


Complete my book in 80 days

In 80 days to circumnavigate this plan

I'll do my duty as a noble Englishman

For queen and country I will do what must be done

80 days to save my honor and a wager to be won


In 80 days I will restore my shattered pride

And fiddle the expenses, make some money on the side


Redeem my reputation, perhaps a knighthood will ensue


At least I'll save my job, restore my pension when it's due

      G   C     G   C 

In 80 days,  80 days

Time has no meaning in this void, I lost a husband and a home

I bore a child, betrayed my faith

I see a future and a past that has no face. What's 80 days?

Time has no meaning in a spirit floating endlessly in space

80 days

80 days to find a long lost husband that is mine

With a little slap and tickle just to pass the time

And see the world, a chance that I might never have again

And help my son, so his quest is not totally in vain

For 80 days, 80 days


I'll wager he won't do it. There's no way it can be done

We always back a winner and there's no way that he's one

He'll disappoint the nation, he'll fall flat on his face

       C7			       D                           G

What a just humiliation, he'll never stand the pace for 80 days

                  C         G 

In 80 days we can do it, 80 Days

                  C     G  C  G

In 80 days we can do it

C               D                C               D

Will I reach my goal in 80 days? Will I write my book in 80 days?

Will I have a job in 80 days? A wager to be won in 80 days

Will I find my man? Will I get promoted?

A deadline to be met in 80 days. Perhaps another holiday?

Will I put the criminal in jail?
