A Moving Story (Difford/Tilbrook)

This song is a "forest of chords", so you know, I must have missed a couple.
Please send me an email if you'd like to put a different paint job on things.

D (5th fret)       C (3rd fret)   
She moved from Clapham 
    D    
And didn't look back
Db Am7               C (3rd fret) D  
Her life was changed in an instant
D (5th fret)       C (3rd fret)    
The van was filled up
     D  
And tied to the rack
Db Am7            C (3rd fret) D  
Her home that now seemed so distant

        Dm
Kissing goodbye
                      E
To her friends on the stairs
           Bb7               G
She felt a loss deep within her
           Cm                         C
Sat in the front seat with stuff everywhere
               F                        A  C (3rd fret)
The neighbours said they would ring her

 
D (5th fret)          C (3rd fret) 
They moved to the sea front
     D
And loved their new view
Db   Am7           C (3rd fret) D  
Of tides coming in on the shingle
D (5th fret)       C (3rd fret)   
She and her daughter
      D  
Found new things to do
Db   Am7            C (3rd fret) D  
At last it was good to be single

           Dm
And in the summer
               E
The place came alive
            Bb7                   G
Lights on the pier in the evening
 
              Cm                          C
The fresh sea air you could cut it with a knife
       F
Such a wonderful feeling 

walkdown

A
She worked in a pub 
      C#m
Where bands would appear
     Em                Bm       F
On a tiny stage in the corner
  
She watched them load in
     C
With tattered old gear
    G                      Bm
The place would get like a sauna
 
A
London had gone now
      C#m
Her new life was strong
     Em                Bm       F
She found herself a new karma
      
She fell for a man
      C
Who played in a band
         G                     Bm
And took her life from it's drama 

D (5th fret)       C (3rd fret)   
She moved from Clapham
     D  
And didn't look back
Db Am7         C (3rd fret) D  
The past was neatly extinguished
D (5th fret)       C (3rd fret)  
He was much younger
     D 
But she lived with that
Db Am7                 C (3rd fret) D  
He struggled hard with his english 

             Dm
She felt his loving
            E
And proudly reclaimed
           Bb7                G
All of the warmth she'd been lacking
            Cm
They lay in bed 
                   C
Looking out at the rain
        F                 A  C (3rd fret)
No more moving or packing 

D (5th fret)       C (3rd fret)   
She moved from Clapham 
    D    
And didn't look back
Db Am7             C (3rd fret) A  
Her life was changed in an instant
