Steve Mcqueen Chords
Standard tuning capo 4th fret.

Worked this out from the audio of the first time the song was played publicly, during the Newport Folk 
Festival: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g77X7_GesPo

All of the chords are finger picked apart from the final one which is strummed once.


Notation:
A^: x0223x
D^: xx233x
 

Intro:
D


Verse 1:
        D       A       
I could take my time
            D         G
And I could speed you up
        D        A^
I could pull you in
  D         G
I can't get enough
      Bm                     A      A
Let's go, slip sliding in my veins...
 
 
Chorus 1:

    D                 A
Cos this life is only chains
     Bm                             G
It's nothing like the colours in my dreams
       D                    A^
I just wanted to be Steve McQueen
       Bm        A              G
And my horses of English racing green
Bm             A              D
You and me and British racing green
 


Verse 2:

           D       A^
And it can hold us down
       D          G
It can break your pride
          D        A^
And if it gets too rough
              D       G
Well you just climb inside
      Bm                     A      A
Let's go, slip sliding in my veins...
 

Chorus 2:

    D                 A
Cos this life is only chains
     Bm                             G
It's nothing like the colours in my dreams
       D                    A^
I just wanted to be Steve McQueen
       Bm        A              G
And my horses of English racing green
Bm             A              D
You and me and British racing green
 


Bridge:

    D     D^  A^
And don't you know
     Bm              A           G
That you and I we're never going home
      G                  A^
Since we don't wanna be alone
        Bm  A  G
Here we go
             A^      A^
Sliding in my veins...
 

Chorus 3 & Outro:

    D                 A^
Cos this life is only chains
     Bm                             G
It's nothing like the colours in my dreams
            D                   A^
And I just wanted to be Steve McQueen
       Bm        A              G
And my horses of English racing green
Bm             A              D
You and me and British racing green

    D                       A^
And this life is always the same
     Bm                              G
It's nothing like the colours in our dreams
         D                   A^
We just wanted to be Steve McQueen
         Bm        A              G
With our horses of English racing green
Bm            A              G
You and me in British racing green
Bm          A       D*
You and me, Steve McQueen.
