Diplomats Son Chords
[Intro]
F# G#m C# C#7

[Verse 1]
         F#    G#m C#
It's not right,
                  F#    G#m C#
but it's now or never
         F# G#m C#
And if I wa-a-a-ait
                      F#    G#m C#
could I ever forgive myself?

    F#    G#m C#

On a night
                                  F#     G#m C#
when the moon glows yellow in the riptide
         F# G#m C#
With the li-i-i-ight
                            F#   G#m7 C#7
from the TVs buzzing in the house
      F#                     G#m
Cause I'm gonna cut it where I can
         C#                   C#7

And then I'm gonna duck out behind them
     F#                     G#m
If I ever had a chance it's now then
      C#                            C#7           F#   G#m7 C#7
But I never had the feeling I could offer that to you


[Pre-chorus]
   F#          G#m          C#7
To offer it to you would be cruel
                   F#       G#m   C#7
When all I want to do is use, use you


[Chorus 1]
                    F#
He was a diplomat's son
G#m               C#   C#7
   It was ‘eighty-one,
                    F#
He was a diplomat's son
G#m               C#   C#7
   It was ‘eighty-one, oh-oh-oh-oh


F# G#m C# C#7
F# G#m C# C#7

[Verse 2]
           F#    G#m C#
Dressed in white
        C#7                    F#    G#m C# C#7
with my car keys hidden in the kitchen
        F#    G#m C#
I could sleep
    C#7           F#    G#m C# C#7
wherever I lay my head

        F#    G#m C#
And the sight
        C#7                      F#      G#m C# C#7
of your two shoes sitting in the bathtub
       F#    G#m C#
Let me know
       C#7                   F#
that I shouldn't give up just yet

      F#                     G#m
Cause I'm gonna take it from Simon
         C#                   C#7
And then I'm gonna duck out behind them
     F#                     G#m
If I ever had a chance it's now then
      C#                            C#7           F#   G#m7 C#7

But I never had the feeling I could offer that to you


[Pre-chorus]
   F#          G#m          C#
To offer it to you would be cruel
     C#7           F#       G#m   C#  C#7
When all I want to do is use, use you


[Chorus 1]
                    F#
He was a diplomat's son
G#m               C#   C#7
   It was ‘eighty-one,
                    F#
He was a diplomat's son
G#m               C#   C#7
   It was ‘eighty-one, oh-oh-oh-oh


[Bridge]
B F# F# C#7

B F# F# C#7

B        F#
  I know, you'll say
F#            C#7
I'm not doing it right
    B             F#
But this is how I want it

F# C#7

B        F#
  I can't go back
F#         C#7
  To how I felt before


[Verse 3]
F#              G#m
   That night I smoked a joint
     C#
With my best friend
   C#7                F#
We found ourselves in bed
            G#m       C#    C#7
When I woke up he was gone

[Chorus 2]
F#          G#m
   He was a diplomat's son
C#         C#7
   It was ‘eighty-one,
F#          G#m
   He was a diplomat's son
C#         C#7
   It was ‘eighty-one

[Instrumental break]

F# G#m C# C#7
F# G#m C# C#7

B F# F# C#7
B F# F# C#7

[Outro]

F# G#m C#
F# G#m C#

        F# G#m C#
Looking out
                           F#       G#m C#
at the ice cold water all around me
       F#    G#m C#
I can't feel
                        F#     G#m C#
any traces of that other place
      F#    G#m C#
In the dark
                                   F#    G#m C#
when the wind comes racing off the river
          F# G#m C#
There's a car
                          F#     G#m C#
all black with diplomatic plates
