Divide And Conquer

Husker Du

@Song: Divide and Conquer Written by Bob Mould Recorded by Husker Du on album "Flip Your Wig" (SST) File format: tab Transcribed by Gary Von Colln
This song is based on three chords: D - A - G. The main riff is based on these chords and the chords themselves are played while Bob Mould sings. When I play I use the open forms of these chords; I'm not sure what form Bob Mould uses (the fuzz makes it hard to tell).

D A G They divided up all the land We've got states and cities Cities have their neighborhoods And more subdivisions
There's lots of area codes And nine digit zip codes
Secret decoder ring codes Arteries, shopping nodes
There's countries divided by walls Oceans and latitudes And longitudes longing to find out What there missing
We'll invent some new computers Link up the global village Get API, UPI, Reuters To tell everybody the news, news
We'll be one happy neighborhood Spread out across the world But who's gonna stop that burglar from breaking into my house When he lives that far away
We'll be just like old friends No means to your ends The police state is too busy And the neighborhood's getting out of hand
Big Brother on every wall Muzak plays in all the halls Empires see the rise and fall They divide and conquer
It's not about my politics Something happened way to quick A bunch of me who played it slick They divide and conquer
It's all here before your eyes Safety is a big disguise That hides among the other lies They divide and conquer
Well I expect I won't be heard Cause my silence is assured Never a discouraging word They divide and conquer
