If you watch the original video to this you will see that the band are burying alive Tony McCarroll who was the drummer at the start of Oasis’s career. Shortly after this Tony was sacked by Noel Gallagher and replaced by Alan White. 

 

Chords to Live Forever by Oasis

This is a quite simple song to play with only 7 chords.

G  D Am7  C  D – E – F

This is one of those strange songs where it’s hard to tell which is the chorus and which is the verse. Does the song start with a chorus “Maybe, I don’t really want to know…” or is there no chorus at all? You decide.

Lyrics to the Oasis song Live Forever

The lyrics to this classic Oasis song released in on the 8th August 1994  from the debut Oasis album Definitely Maybe are reasonably easy to remember as they repeat themselves. This is apart from the “Maybe I will never be…” section which is only sung once. 

 

Maybe I don’t really wanna know
How your garden grows
‘Cause I just wanna fly
Lately, did you ever feel the pain
In the morning rain
As it soaks you to the bone?

Maybe I just wanna fly
Wanna live, I don’t wanna die
Maybe I just wanna breathe
Maybe I just don’t believe
Maybe you’re the same as me
We see things they’ll never see
You and I are gonna live forever

I said maybe I don’t really wanna know
How your garden grows
‘Cause I just wanna fly
Lately, did you ever feel the pain
In the morning rain
As it soaks you to the bone?

Maybe I will never be
All the things that I wanna be
Now is not the time to cry
Now’s the time to find out why
I think you’re the same as me
We see things they’ll never see
You and I are gonna live forever

Maybe I don’t really wanna know
How your garden grows
‘Cause I just wanna fly
Lately, did you ever feel the pain
In the morning rain
As it soaks you to the bone?

Maybe I just wanna fly
Wanna live, I don’t wanna die
Maybe I just wanna breathe
Maybe I just don’t believe
Maybe you’re the same as me
We see things they’ll never see
You and I are gonna live forever

Gonna live forever
Gonna live forever
We’re gonna live forever
Gonna live forever
Gonna live forever
Gonna live forever

The song only contains a small number of chords and is a nice accompaniment to perform live as well as Wonderwall

Chords in Cast No Shadow by Oasis are:

  • Verse: Asus4  G
  • Bridge: Em D Cadd9 G – Em D Cadd9
  • Chorus G Asus4 Cadd9 Em D – Em D Cadd9

Note: The Asus4 in this song also has your little finger on the top E string on the third fret ringing a G note.

 

Lyrics to Cast No Shadow by Oasis

Here’s a thought for every man
Who tries to understand what is in his hands (what’s in his hands)
He walks along the open road of love and life
Surviving if he can (surviving if he can) (Second time around: But only if he can)

Bound with all the weight of all the words he tried to say
Chained to all the places that he never wished to stay
Bound with all the weight of all the words he tried to say
As he faced the sun he cast no shadow

As they took his soul they stole his pride x 3
As he faced the sun he cast no shadow

 

As you will see the entire song is simply repeated from the start again with the exact same lyrics apart from Noel’s call back changes from “Surviving if he can” to “But only if he can” second time around.

Married With Children Oasis Cover Version Video Acoustic Britpop Tribute Band

To celebrate the anniversary of ‘Definitely Maybe’ Britpop musician Andy Starkey decided to take time out of his holiday to live stream this Married With Children Oasis cover version.  Andy hadn’t played this song for over 20 years and it is actually one of the first Oasis set of chords he ever mastered as a teenager. Married With Children is the final song from the Oasis debut album ‘Definitely Maybe‘ which was released August 1994 on Alan McGee’s ‘Creation Records’. Britpop Reunion perform many songs by Oasis from their nineties repertoire including Roll With It, Don’t Look Back In Anger, Wonderwall, Cigarettes & Alcohol and more.  To book a Britpop tribute band for a 90’s party contact Andy for more information on price and availability to hire.

Married With Children Oasis Cover Version Video

The lyrics to Married With Children were somewhat inspired by Louise Jones, who was Noel Gallagher’s girlfriend at the time . She was constantly being kept awake by the Oasis songwriter while he was writing songs and practicing his guitar. Louise would get annoyed telling Noel, “You’re music’s shite.” Gallagher said that he had to keep those lines and wrote them into this song. Those must have been fun times in their household in the nineteen nineties eh.

The song was also inspired by the USA sitcom “Married… with Children”. Noel Gallagher told nineties music paper Melody Maker “I looked at them two in the show (Al Bundy & Peggy Bundy), and looked at us two, and I thought, that’s us, that is!” (i.e. he, Noel Gallagher and his girlfriend Louise Jones). Furthermore he said “It’s another song that anybody could relate to, because if you live with a girlfriend or just a flatmate, there are always petty things that you hate about them. And this song’s just about pettiness”. Yeah, isn’t that right eh.

Further musings about the Oasis song Married With Children.

This original of this very acoustic sounding song is actually ever so slightly out of tune from regular 440Hz tuning. This suggests it was probably slowed down slightly after recording. Married With Children was an album only track and was never released as a single. Andy’s Married With Children Oasis cover version stays close to the original but has the guitar solo section removed as he preformed it solo. It would have sounded empty without another guitar strumming chords under a solo otherwise.

Noel Gallagher is known for borrowing/plagiarising other artists songs.  If you listen to Lithium by Nirvana (From their 1991 sophomore album ‘Nevermind’) you’ll notice it has very similar chords played with a similar rhythm.

The final song was supposedly recorded in about half an hour on a broken Four-Track multitrack recorder in producer/engineer Mark Coyle’s bedroom.
The very dry sounding guitar part was played by Noel on a Gretsch ‘Country Gent’ that used to be owned by John Squire from The Stone Roses that was round at Owen Morris’s house. The final products is a great link between the demo stages with Mark Coyle and the finished album track.

Alan McGee from Creation records was quoted as saying “It works and when it works its charming and when it’s charming it goes on the record”. Which is a great ethos.

During the recording of Married With Children the following musicians and producers were involved with Oasis (Although not all featured on this song).

  • Owen Morris & Mark Coyle – Producers
  • Liam Gallagher – Lead Vocals
  • Noel Gallagher – Lead Guitarist & backing vocals
  • Paul Arthurs (aka Bonehead) – Rhythm guitar
  • Paul McGuigan (aka Guigsy) – Bass guitar
  • Tony McCarrol – Drummer

Married With Children Lyrics

There’s no need for you to say you’re sorry
Goodbye I’m going home
I don’t care no more so don’t you worry
Goodbye I’m going home

I hate the way that even though you
Know you’re wrong you say you’re right
I hate the books you read and all your friends
Your music’s shite it keeps me up all night, up all night

There’s no need for you to say you’re sorry
Goodbye I’m going home
I don’t care no more so don’t you worry
Goodbye I’m going home

I hate the way that you are so sarcastic
And you’re not very bright
You think that everything you’ve done’s fantastic
Your music’s shite it keeps me up all night, up all night

And it will be nice to be alone for a week or two
But I know then I will be right, right back here with you, with you….

There’s no need for you to say you’re sorry
Goodbye I’m going home
I don’t care no more so don’t you worry
Goodbye I’m going home


Chords to Married With Children by Oasis

Slightly above a beginners level of playing, yet still pretty simple enough. You can play along to Andy’s Married With Children Oasis Cover Version Video by following the following guitar chords.

E G# C#m A C B7 E
A A7 E – F# A G

Earlier recordings of Married With Children.

A demo version of Married With Children was released on the Deluxe Edition version of the Oasis debut album ‘Definitely Maybe’. A slightly less refined version yet it doesn’t actually differ very much from the final album release. But it does feature a very loud shaker throughout and then a loud tambourine during the solo. Also it has slightly clearer lyrics sung by Liam. It clocks in at one second shorter than the final album release being three minutes and sixteen seconds.
