Intro pattern


Verse 1 (intro pattern plays underneath)
I stand accused
           D              A            A/G      E
Just like you for being born without a silver spoon
E                     D
Stood at the top of a hill
        A     A/G   E
Over my town I was found

     G           A        E
I've been on the shelf too long
G         A          E
Sitting at home on my bed too long
G      A          E
Got my things and now I'm gone
G         A           E
How's the world gonna take me?


Verse 2 (Intro pattern plays under)
Finding myself used to be hard
But now, I see the light
If love is a drug
Then I don't need it

I've been on the shelf too long
Sitting at home on my bed too long
Now it's time to hear my song
How are you gonna take it?

I've been on the shelf too long
I've been on the shelf too long
I've been on the shelf too long
C'mon C'mon C'mon
A                  A/G      E
We've got a lot of living to do
E                              D
There's a door in my mind that's open wide
A         A/G        E
Come inside come inside

E    D    A    A/G   E  (4x)

Verse 3 (intro pattern plays under)
Jesus never saved me
He'll never save you too, and you know!
I've got a little sticker on the back of my boot
This is music

Outro (same chords as verse, intro patter plays under)
And now I see the light shining bright in my eyes
If love is the drug then it ain't for me
Well music is my life
And loved by me
I'm gonna move on the floor with my sweet young thing
Down down down we go till we reach the bottom
Of our soul with this is music

About the artist behind This Is Music Tab:

The Verve (originally Verve) are an English rock band formed in Wigan, Greater Manchester in 1989 at Winstanley Sixth Form College, by vocalist Richard Ashcroft, guitarist Nick McCabe, bassist Simon Jones, and drummer Peter Salisbury. Simon Tong later became a member. The band split in April 1999 due to inner conflicts which led to McCabe's departure. The band's original line-up reunited in June 2007. The band embarked on a tour in late 2007 and have announced an album due in 2008.

Beginning with a psychedelic sound indebted to space rock and shoegazing, by the mid-1990s the band had released several EPs and two acclaimed records. They also endured name and lineup changes, breakups, health problems, drug abuse and various lawsuits. The band's commercial breakthrough was the album Urban Hymns and its single "Bitter Sweet Symphony", which became a massive worldwide hit. Soon after this commercial peak, the band broke up, citing creative struggles between band members. By then, The Verve had become one of the most influential British alternative rock acts of the decade.

Mike Gee of iZINE said, "...The Verve, as he [Richard Ashcroft] promised, had become the greatest band in the world. Most of the critics agreed with him. Most paid due homage. The Verve were no longer the question mark or the cliché. They were the statement and the definition."[1]
