Subject: CRD: "the whole point of no return" by "The Style Council"

This is another song of "the Style Council" which is one of my very
favourites of the band. The lyrics here are the original ones
as performed on their fist album "Cafe Bleu".  
I arranged the song for myself referring to a beautifull live-tape
I recorded from the radio (Live in London, Albert Hall, spring '87). 
So the orginal may differ a little bit, as the text of the live recording
is totally different...

The whole point of no return - the Style Council        (P. Weller)


am7                                bm7


Repeat, and use this with few modifications for the whole song.

  am7                               bm7

The Lords and Ladies pass a ruling.
  am7                                 bm7       
The sons and girls go hand in hand,
  am7                                bm7
From good stock and the best breeding,
  am7                           Gmaj7
Paid for by the servile class,
  Cmaj7                        D
Who have been told, or lie in state
To bow down forth and face their fate.
   Cmaj7          D
Oh it's so easy.  Oh, so easy.

am7 bm7 am7 bm7

  am7                                    bm7
All righteousness they build thy arrow,
  am7                                   bm7
To shoot it straight into their lies.
  am7                              bm7
Who would expect the might sparrow
  am7                                    Gmaj7  
Could rid the world of all their kind?

Cmaj7         D
Rising up and taking back
The property of ev'ry man.
Cmaj7          D        
It's so easy.  Oh, so easy.

am7 bm7 am7 bm7

Cmaj7        D
Rising up to break this thing.

Cmaj7            D
Just one blow to scratch the itch.
The law's made for 'em by the rich.
   Cmaj7           D                    
It would be easy.  So, so easy.

am7 bm7 am7 bm7 

Hope you enjoy this...  Juergen
