Continue the muted strum technique in the verses

A chordA
I was sipping on a Whiskey when I got the call
F#m chordF#m
Yeah my friend Lex was lying in the hospital
Bm chordBm
She'd been pretty sick for about half a year
E chordE
But it seems liked this time the end was drawing near

A chordA
So dropped my plans and jumped the next London train
F#m chordF#m
I found her laid up and in a lot of pain
Bm chordBm
Her eyes met mine and then I understood
E chordE E7 chordE7
That the weather forecast wasn't looking too good
A chordA
So I sat and spun her stories for a little while
F#m chordF#m
Tried to raise her mood and tried to raise a smile
Bm chordBm Bm chordBm
But she silenced all my rambling with a shake of her head
E chordE E7 chordE7
Drew me close and listen this is what she said now

A chordA F#m chordF#m
You'll live to dance another day
Bm chordBm E chordE E7 chordE7
it's just now you'll have to dance for the two of us
A chordA F#m chordF#m
so stop looking so damn depressed
Bm chordBm
and sing with all your heart
E chordE
that the Queen is dead

A chordA
Yeah she told me she was sick of all the hospital food
F#m chordF#m
And of doctors distant relatives draining her blood
Bm chordBm
She said I know I'm dying but I'm not finished just yet
E chordE E7 chordE7
I am dying for a drink and for a cigarette
A chordA
So we hatched a plan to book ourselves a cheap hotel
F#m chordF#m
In the centre of the City and to raise some Hell
Bm chordBm Bm chordBm E chordE
They waste to all the clubs and then when everyone else is long asleep
E7 chordE7
We know we're good and done

A chordA F#m chordF#m
You'll live to dance another day
Bm chordBm E chordE E7 chordE7
it's just now you'll have to dance for the two of us
A chordA F#m chordF#m
so stop looking so damn depressed
Bm chordBm
and sing with all your heart
E chordE Bm chordBm
that the Queen is dead
E chordE Bm chordBm
And South London's not the same anymore
E chordE Bm chordBm
The Queen is dead
E chordE Bm chordBm E chordE
and the last of the great has finally gone to bed

A chordA
Well I was working on some words when Sarah called me up
F#m chordF#m
She said that Lex had gone asleep and wasn't waking up
Bm chordBm
And even though I knew that there was nothing to be done
E chordE E7 chordE7
I felt bad for not being there and now well she was gone
A chordA
So I tried to think what Lex would want me to do
F#m chordF#m
At times like this when I was feeling blue
Bm chordBm
So I gathered up some friends to spread the sad sad news
E chordE E7 chordE7
And we headed to the City for a drink or two

And we sang

A chordA F#m chordF#m
We live to dance another day
Bm chordBm E chordE E7 chordE7
it's just now we have to dance for one more of us
A chordA F#m chordF#m
so stop looking so damn depressed
Bm chordBm
and sing with all our hearts
E chordE F# chordF#
long live the Queen
