The Campaign for Real Rock
                      by EDWYN COLLINS


INTRO
Abm     Abm     Gb6     Eb
Abm     Abm     Gb6     Eb

1st VERSET
Abm
Don't try so hard to be different
Abm
The cracks are beginning to show
Gb6
You drift like a cloud through the festival crowd
Eb
In a frock coat from Saville Row
Abm
You've just been an all-night party
Abm
Where I have to admit it takes pluck
Gb6
To go out on the floor and proclaim "What a bore"
Eb
In a T-shirt that reads "Disco Sucks"
Abm
Yes, here he comes, the not-so-young
Abm
Pretender to the Throne
Gb6
He's singing "Rag, Momma, Rag"
Eb
Won't you give that poor dog a bone?
Abm
And he's wondering why we can't connect
Abm
When he's sworn to us that he's totally wrecked
Gb6
On the rustic charm that he affects
Eb
On a public schoolboy whim
Abm
With a raggle taggle plastic gypsy
Abm
Robert Zimmerframe
Gb6
With a synthesized accordian
Eb
A-scramblin' up my brain
Abm
With a fiddle-dee-dee a fiddle on high
Abm
Excuse me folks while I kiss the sky
Gb6
Or at any rate give it one more try
Eb
                        before I
Eb
die
Eb
                        before I





SOLO
Abm     Abm     Gb6     Eb
die
Abm     Abm     Gb6     Eb
Abm     Abm     Gb6     Eb

2nd VERSET
Abm
The overrated hit the stage
Abm
Overpaid and over here
Gb6
And their idea of counter-culture's
Eb
Momma's charge account at Sears
Abm
And they're wondering why we can't connect
Abm
With the ritual of the trashed guitar
Gb6
One more paltry empty gesture
Eb
The ashes of a burned out star
Abm
Yes here they come, both old and young
Abm
A contact low or high
Gb6
The gathering of the tribes descending
Eb
Vultures from a caustic sky
Abm
The rotting carcase of July
Abm
An ugly sun hung out to dry
Gb6
You gorgeous hippy dreams are dying
Eb
Your frazzled brains are putrifying
Abm
Repackaged, sold and sanitizied
Abm
The devil's music exorcised
Gb6
You live, you die, you lie, you lie, you
Eb
die          perpetuate the
Abm
lie
Abm
             perpetuate the
Gb6
lie
Eb
             perpetuate the
Abm
lie
Abm
     Just to perpetuate the
Gb6
lie
Eb
