The Smiths – The Queen Is Dead (Chords)


The Smiths – The Queen Is Dead (Chords)

A long weekend of Jubilee nonsense has put me in the mood for a song saying how great regicide is.

This is a tricky one to fit the lyrics against the chords. Morrissey’s lack of respect for non-democratic rule is only matched by his lack of respect for scansion, so they’re crashing all over the place. There’s a rollocking live version of it on the recent box set where he stumbles over the words. So good luck with that.

Suggested Strumming

You can use this one all the way through:

d – d u d u d u

Do that once each time you see a chord name.
