Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Highwire  Rolling Stones

    [G]We sell 'em missiles, We sell 'em tanks
    [C]We give 'em credit, You can call the bank

    [G]It's just a business, You can pay us in crude
    [C]You love these toys, just go play out your feuds

    [G]Got no pride, don't know whose boots to lick
    [C]We act so greedy, makes me sick sick sick
BREAK:
(PLAY INTRO OVER THESE WORDS)
So get up, stand up, out of my way
I want to talk to the boss right away

(PLAY INTRO OVER THESE WORDS)
Get up, stand up, whose gonna pay
I want to talk to the man right away

CHORUS:
    [G]We walk the h[C]ighw[G]ire
    Sending the men up to the fr[D]ont line
    Hoping they don't catch the h[C]ell fire
    With hot guns and c[D]old, cold nights

    We walk the h[C]ighw[G]ire
    Sending the men up to the fr[D]ont line
    And tell 'em to hotbed the s[C]unshine
    With hot guns and c[D]old, cold nights

VERSE:
Our lives are threatened, our jobs at risk
Sometimes dictators need a slap on the wrist

Another Munich we just can't afford
We're gonna send in the eighty-second airborne

BREAK:
Get up, stand up, who's gonna pay
I wanna talk to the boss right away
Get up, stand up, outta my way
I wanna talk to the man right away

CHORUS:
We walk the highwire
Putting the world out on a deadline
And hoping they don't catch the shellfire
With hot guns and cold, cold nights

We walk the highwire
Putting the world out on a deadline
Catching the bite on primetime
With hot guns and cold, cold nights

BREAK:
Get up! Stand up!
Dealer! Stealer!
Hey!

CHORUS:
We walk the highwire
We send all our men into the front lines
We're hoping that we backed the right side
With hot guns and cold, cold nights

We walk the highwire
We send all the men up to the front lines
And hoping they don't catch the hellfire
With hot guns and cold cold, cold, cold,
cold nights

We walk the highwire
We walk the highwire
With hot guns and cold, cold, cold nights

With hot guns and cold, cold nights
