G barre
I let you down
I let you down
I did it well, I gave you hell
               Am barre
And messed you around.
C               Am
I was wrong and caught red handed
C                  Am
It didn't work the way I planned it
C                   Am                A
I wish I hadn't dressed you with that frown
N.C.
I let you down.

G barre
I mucked it up
I mucked it up
You saw the side I tried to hide
                 Am barre
And that was too much
C             Am
I could go to church on Sunday
C              Am
Maybe I'd be alright Monday
C                Am            A
Amazin how this grace helps me rebound
I let you down.

Oh was it really me
Who jumped in first and made you curse
Just at the sight of me
How could it be

C               Am
I was wrong and caught red handed
C                  Am
It didn't work the way I planned it
C                   Am                A
I wish I hadn't dressed you with that frown

I let you       down

Note: It is a requirement of this song to sing with an irish accent, it is imperitive 
"down" be pronounced, "Dowyn". Also parts of this mimic the backing singers and may not be 
actual chords used by the band.

About the artist behind Let You Down:

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.
