G(D)  x(5)5433  (D) implied by bass

0x2220; C: xx0232; C(G): x0x232; D: xx2100; D(A) x22100.

 Wonder where I went wrong, I spent my last year inside a cell
          |C(G)    |G   |G(D)  |G    |
Never ever go away again
|G(D)        |D |D(A)|D  |D(A) |
 I've been so sad and lonely
|C     |C(G)                 |C  |C(G)|G   |G(D)  |G   |G(D) |
        Never ever ever gonna go away again
                                                       [rept intro]

It's a waste of time doing time when you didn't commit the crime
It wasn't me it was my brother Bill
Emptied out the till, never gonna speak to Bill again
He's made me sad and lonely
Never ever gonna speak to brother Bill again

         |C        |C(G)  |C      |C(G)  |G  |G(D) |G   |G(D)
It was no use, they put my brother on the jury
             |C      |C(G)    |C       |C(G) |D   |D(A) |D   |D(A) 
He bribed the others 'cause he owns the local brewery

They let me out today
Brother Bill's gonna pay
No one's ever gonna speak to Bill again
Never ever ever speak to Bill again
He'll be too cold and bony
Never ever gonna go away again
Never ever gonna go away again
Never ever gonna go away again
