Shangri-La

R. D. Davies/the Kinks: Arthur (1969)

Am G E7 Am Am C G E7
Now that you've found your paradise, This is your kingdom to command.
Am C G E7 Am C E7 Am
You can go outside and polish your car Or sit by the fire in your Shangri-La.
 
Am G E7 Am Am C G E7
Here's your reward for working so hard - Gone are the lavatories in the backyard;
Am C G E7 Am C E7 Am
Gone are the days when you dreamed of that car - You just want to sit in your Shangri-La!
 
D Dmaj7 D7 G G/F# Em
Put on your slippers and sit by the fire, You've reached your top and you just can't get any higher.
C C/B Am Am/G F F/E Dm Dm/C
You're in your place and you know where you are. In your Shangri-La.
 
D Dmaj7 D7 G G/F#
Sit back in your old rockin' chair, You need not worry you need not care.
Em C C/B Am
You can't go anywhere.
F A F A Bb F C A
Shangri-La-a, Shangri-La-a, Shangri-La-ah-ah-ah!
 
D Dmaj7 D7 G G/F# Em
The little man who gets the train Got a mortgage hanging over his head.
C C/B Am Am/G F F/E Dm Dm/C
But he's too scared to complain - Cause he's conditioned that way;
 
D Dmaj7 D7 G G/F# Em C C/B Am
Time goes by and he pays off his debts - Got a T.V. set and a radio - for seven shillings a week.

Dm Dm/C Dm/B Dm/Bb
And all the houses in the street have got a nam,
Dm Dm/C Dm/B Dm/Bb
'Cause all the houses in the street they look the same,
A D Dm
ame chimney pots, same little cars, same window panes.
 
Dm Dm/C Dm/B Dm/Bb
The neighbors call to tell you things that you should know,
Dm Dm/C Dm/B Dm/Bb
They say their lines they drink their tea and then they go ,
A D Dm
They tell your business in another Shangri-La.
 
Dm Dm/C Dm/B Dm/Bb
The gas bills and the water rates and payments on the car ,
Dm Dm/C Dm/B Dm/Bb
Too scared to think about how insecure you are ,
A D
Life ain't so happy in your little Shangri-La
G C F Bb |: G C F Bb :| A
Shangri-La- Shangri-la la la la la la la lala; - -La- la la la la la la la la la lala;

Put on your slippers and sit by the fire - You've reached your top and you just can't get any higher,
C C/B Am Am/G F F/E Dm Dm/C
You're in your place and you know where you are - In your Shangri-La!
 
D Dmaj7 D7 G G/F# Em
Sit back in your old rockin' chair you need not worry you need not care

You can't go anywhere -
