This is based on a live version of the song played in the paradiso amsterdam on 3rd 
2007. You can watch it on fabchannel.com.

E7 is played just shortly at the end of each E and is also optional.

Am                       E
Rose, she ain't like the others
      Am                      E     (E7)
she spins, well, some dervish mother
    Am                        E
Her bright brown hair and her acorn eyes
    Am                    E 
she gets me there when she hypnotises
    Em      H           Am    E
But Brixton leaves me alone

  Am            E      (E7)
Another drunken evening
    Am                      E      (E7)
Red wine, well, you're so deceiving
    Am               E
Her photograph is my only friend
           Am                      E   
Well, this one wild year just won't seem to end
    Em      H          Am
And Brixton leaves me alone

    G        G7         C
The sun will rise once more
         A
Well, it better
    G        G7         C
The sun will rise once more
      A
If we let her
    Em      H          Am     E Am E
But Brixton leaves me alone

     Am                E
Just one more night in London
    Am                         E     (E7)
And Home, well, is a distant drumlin'
           Am                   E 
With it's 'No retreat' and 'Our time has come'
           Am                   E 
Well, just fuck those fifes and damn those drums
     Em      H          Am
Yeah Belfast leave me alone

    G        G7         C
The sun will rise once more
         A7
Well, it better
    G        G7         C
The sun will rise once more
      A
If we let her
    G        G7         C
The sun will rise once more
         A7
Well, it better
    G        G7         C
The sun will rise once more
      A
If we let her
    Em      H           Am    E Am E (E7) Am E Am E Am
But Brixton leaves me alone

About the artist behind Brixton Leaves Chords:

Duke Special, real name Peter Wilson, is a songwriter and performer based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. A piano-based songwriter with a romantic style and a warm, distinctly-accented voice, he has a distinctive look, with his long dreadlocks, eyeliner and outfits he describes as "hobo chic". His live performances have a theatrical style inspired by Vaudeville and music hall, and often incorporate 78s played on an old-fashioned gramophone, or sound effects from a transistor radio. He is most often accompanied by percussionist "Temperance Society" Chip Bailey, who plays cheese graters and egg whisks, a Stumpf fiddle and a Shirdi drone box, as well as the more typical drums and cymbals. Other musicians who perform with Wilson from time to time include Paul "Pilot" Wilkinson (guitar), Réa Curran (trumpet, backing vocals, accordion), Ben Castle (clarinet, saxophone), Ben Hales (bass guitar), "Professor" Ger Eaton (keyboards) and Serge Archibald III (saxophone, "ethereal background sounds", vibes).

He has released two albums, Adventures in Gramophone (2005) and Songs from the Deep Forest (2006), both of which were nominated for the Choice Music Prize. He is married to an artist and has three sons.
