Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Advertising Man  David Wilcox

If you [C]want some real contentment, to [E7]live life at its best,
You can [F+2]buy these dry tobacco leaves, to [Fm]breathe into your chest.
And then [C]look up at the [A7]billboard, [D7]while all the [D6]promises come
[G]true[Gsus4/A],         for you[G5(add].[C#)/B] [G/B]
You'll feel a[C]live with pleasure, [E7]playful as a child.
You've [F+2]come to where the freedom is.  You're [Fm]cool and mild.
You'll [C]laugh with every [A7]lungful[D7] as the [D6]change comes
over [G7sus4]you.[G7] [C] [Csus4] [G7sus4]
So [G7sus4]look up at th[G7]e bill[C]board.  See her [G7sus4]smiling, sexy [G7]and [C]tan.
       [Csus4]      [G7sus4]        [G7]      [C]     [Am7]    [D7/F#] [G] [Gsus4/A] [G/B]But the only   one   who's laughing is the advertising man.
Those p[C]ortraits of pleasure, of [E7]those who like to smoke,
They're [F]laughing in the photograph, but [Fm]we don't get the joke.
Now [C]why would they be [A7]smiling [D7]while they're [D6]looking
down our [G]way?[Gsus4/A] [G5(add] [C#)/B] [G/B]
I guess they're making [C]easy money [E7]climbing up the rungs,
From [F]selling us a parasite that's [Fm]feeding on our lungs.
             [C]            [A7]           [D7] [D6]They must be laughing in astonishment that we believe the things
they say[G7sus4].[G7] [C] [Csus4] [G7sus4]
So [G7sus4]look up at th[G7]e bill[C]board.  See her [G7sus4]smiling, sexy [G7]and [C]tan.
       [Csus4]      [G7sus4]        [G7]      [C]     [Am7]    [D7/F#] [G] [Gsus4/A] [G/B]But the only   one   who's laughing is the advertising man.
Now [C]crack'll kill you quickly.  That's [E7]why it's got to go.
They'll [F+2]get more of your money if they [Fm]kill you nice and slow.
