[Verse 1]


       F#m            A            E             D        A
Listen up, what's the time, said today I'm gonna speak my mind
        F#m       A          E             D      A          
Take me up to the top of the world I wanna see my crime
       F#m           A        E                D        A
Day by day there's a man in a suit, he's gonna make you pay
        F#m               A             E          D             A
For the thoughts that you think and the words they won't let you say


[Pre-Chorus]

F#m           Faug       A/E             B7
     One fine day, gonna leave you all behind

     It wouldn't be so bad if I had time


[Chorus]

D                A/C#    E
Sail me down the river alone
          D                 A/C#     F#m
I've been tryin' to find my way back home
      D                A/C#
But I don't believe in magic
D           A/C#
Life is automatic
    B7            D                A   (pick "A" like guitar 2 in verse)
But I don't don't mind being on my own
   B7      D                A            A
No I don't mind being on my own

About the artist behind Listen Up:

Oasis are an English rock band that formed in Manchester in 1991. The group was formed by Liam Gallagher (lead vocals), Paul Arthurs (guitar), Paul McGuigan (bass) and Tony McCarroll (drums), who were soon joined by Liam's older brother Noel Gallagher (lead guitar, vocals). Oasis have sold more than 50 million albums worldwide,[1] and have had eight UK number one singles. The Gallagher brothers are the band's leading songwriters and the only continual members. The present lineup is completed by rhythm/lead guitarist and songwriter Gem Archer, guitarist and songwriter Andy Bell and unofficial drummer Zak Starkey.

The band initially gained prominence performing on the Manchester club circuit. They were signed to independent record label Creation Records and afterwards released their debut album Definitely Maybe in 1994. The following year, the band recorded (What's the Story) Morning Glory? (1995) with their new drummer Alan White, whilst rivalling with Britpop peers Blur in the charts. The Gallagher brothers were featured regularly in tabloid newspapers for their sibling rivalry and wild lifestyles, cultivating reputations both as bad boys and as a band of the people. At the height of their fame, Oasis' third album, Be Here Now (1997), became the fastest-selling album in UK chart history, but lost much of its long-term appeal after the initial hype and positive reception tempered.

While recording their fourth album Standing on the Shoulder of Giants (2000) in 1999, Oasis lost two founding members and suffered a notable decline in popularity in America. The band added replacements Gem Archer and Andy Bell for Heathen Chemistry (2002). Their sixth album Don't Believe the Truth (2005) with Zak Starkey, despite turbulent recording, became their best-selling and best-received album in a decade. The following year, the band released a compilation album entitled Stop the Clocks. In February 2007, Oasis received the BRIT Award for outstanding contribution to music.

The seventh studio album by the band is reported to be complete and, although an official release date has not been confirmed, both Liam and Noel Gallagher have been quoted as saying that the album is due out in September 2008. [2] [3]
