Intro:
G C x2

 GC
It was an upset in two minutes flat      
 GC
We were back on the freeway, foot to the mat
 EmA7
I can't understand it; we had it down pat
 CD
It's very upsetting, could we leave it at that?
 GC
We all had positions; we each had a role 
 GC
We'd over-rehearsed it; we had full control
 EmA7
They can't teach you acting, it's there in your soul
 CD
It's the same with a bank job, and each thing we stole

 EmF#/DG
So I don't need attitude 
 EmF#/DG
Cause you knew just what to do
 C
We all did our best now
 B/C
We all need to rest now
 A7
Leave me alone   
 D
Wait by the phone

 GC
I was the driver; you ran the show
 GC
You had the last word, the go or no go
 EmA7
I knew every laneway in Ontario  
 CD
But it's not what you're sure of, it's what you don't know
 GC
It should have been filled with the usual ones   
 GC
Throwing their cash into mutual funds
 EmA7
We all had our ski masks and sawed-off shotguns
 CD
But how do you plan for a bank full of nuns?

 GC
Well, I guess we panicked - we all have taboos
 GC
And they were like zebras; they had us confused
 EmA7
We should be in condos with oceanfront views
 CD
Instead we're most-wanted on the six o'clock news

 EmF#/DG
So I don't need attitude 
 EmF#/DG
Cause you knew just what to do
 C
We all did our best now
 B/C
We all need to rest now
 A7
Leave me alone
 D
And wait by the phone

Break:
 EmF#/DGCF#/D
 C B/C C x2 

 GC
Inside the police car you tried to explain
 GC
your crisis of conscience; the voice in your brain
 EmA7
And now that the whole thing has gone down the drain
 CD
I think we all know who should shoulder the blame
 GC
Cause you made a choice there, almost sublime
 GC
I'm all for compassion, just not on my dime
 EmA7
You looked like an amateur, and that's the real crime
 CD
So I'll take a walk now, and you do the time

 EmF#/DG
And I don't need attitude 
 EmF#G
Cause you knew just what to do
 C
We all did our best now
 B/C
We all need to rest now
 A7
Leave me alone
 D
There's no need to phone

 GD
     We all did our best now
 GD
     We all need to rest now
 GD
    Leave me alone
 GD
    We all did our best now
 GD
    We all need to rest now
 GD
    Leave me alone
 GD
    Leave me alone
