Intro: D,Am,C,G

 Bm
 When the iceberg hit,
 Am
 Oh they must have known,
 C
 God moves on the water
 G
Like Casey Jones.

 Bm
 So I walked downtown
 Am
On my telephone,
 C
And took a lazy turn
 GD
Through the redeye zone.

 Bm
 It was a five-band bill,
 Am
two-dollar show.
 C
I saw the van out in front
 G
From Idaho,

 Bm
And the girl passed out
 Am
 In the backseat trash.
 C
There was no way they'd make
 GD
Even a half a tank of gas.

 Bm
 They looked sick and stoned
 Am
And strangely dressed.
 C
And no one showed
 G
From the local press.

 Bm
 But I watched them walk
 Am
 Through the bottom land,
 C
And I wished I played
 GC
In a rock & roll band.

Break: D,Am,C,G

 DAmC
 ...  Hey, hey,
G D Am C, G
It was the fourteenth day in April.

 Bm
 Well they closed it down,
 Am
With the sails in rags.
 C
And they swept up the fags
 G
And the local rags.

 Bm
 Threw the plastic cups
 Am
 In the plastic bags,
 C
And the cooks cleaned the kitchen
 GC
With the staggers and the jags.

Break: D,Am,C,G

 Bm
 Ruination day,
 Am
 And the sky was red.
 C
I went back to work,
 G
And back to bed.

 Bm
 And the iceberg broke,
 Am
And the Okies fled,
 C
And the Great Emancipator
 GD
Took a bullet in the back of the head...

For the 2nd guitar just find a 1930s Epiphone and mess around in G.
