verse 1:

C                         G
When I was young I said this town will live in my dust
  C                          G
My father said?“My boy that life's not for the likes of us”
    C                            Em
But?the boys in the streets, in the fast cars, they kept turning heads
   C                          G
And I said “Boy, they’re real men, one day I’ll be one of them”


chorus:

Em7     C         G   C
The only boy racer left on the island
Em      C         G   C
The only boy racer left on the island


verse 2:

C                      G
They say you could hear the engine from the mainland
C                             G
When I was 10, saw the high street hero speeding round the bend
C                                  Em  C
But those engines got sold when the speed freaks settled down in the sun
C                           G
I guess masculinity’s a pursuit left to the embers of you

chorus:
  Em7   C         G   C
The only boy racer left on the island
  Em    C         G   C
The only boy racer left on the island
  Em7     D
The only joys of holding on
  Am          C
The vines and leaves all gathering on
  G    D         C
The only boy racer left on the island

bridge:
          G  Em G D  Am C Bm
No man gets left behind
Bm         Em  D  C  G
No man gets left behind
