'Good Company' chords guide

Words And Music By Brian May

Note: Ukelele chords arranged for guitar
 B       F#dim       C# F#

Take good core of what you've got
My father said to me
As he puffed his pipe and Baby B.
He dandled on his knee
F#              F#7          B    D7
Don't fool with fools who'll turn away
C#7                F#
Keep all Good Company

Oo Hoo Oo Hoo
Take care of those you call your own
And keep Good Company

Soon I grew and happy too
My very good friends and me
We'd play all day and Sally J.
The girl from number four
And very soon I begged her won't you
Keep me Company

 D#7                           G#m
Now marriage is an insinuation sure
C#                                  F#    D#7(VIII)
My wife and I our needs and nothing more
All my friends by a year by and by disappear
           Bm                     A#
But we're safe enough behind our door.

I flourished in my humble trade
My reputation grew
The work devoured my waking hours
But when my time was through
Reward of all my efforts my own
Limited Company

I hardly noticed Sall as we
         Bm  C#
Pated Company
xx444x         xx344x        xx244x xx644x
All through the years in the end it appears
           Bm                     A#
There was never really anyone but me

Now I'm old I puff my pipe
But no-one's there to see
I ponder on the lesson of
My life's insanity
Take care of those you call your own
And Keep Good Company
