Beirut Moon  Stiff Little Fingers



[E]We'd like to help you, the consul said
But there's n[B]othing we can d[D]o
[E]Well, you knew the risks when you took the job
After [B]all you're not a [D]fool
So, [E]don't call me, don't call me
I [B]just can't bend the [D]rules
[E]Keep your chin up, I know it's tough
[B]Somehow you'll get [D]through."
[E]It seems the Americans [B]bargain and [D]rescue
[E]But if you get caught you're left to rot
[B]Under a Beirut, [D]under a Beirut Moon
(Refr:)
[E]Under a Beirut Moon
[D]Sorry son, there's [D]nothing we can do
[E]Under a Beirut Moon
[D]Different rules, we [D]haven't got a clue

[E]We can't be seen to be giving in
To these [B]terrorists you [D]see
[E]If we talk with them it would mean the end
Of [B]all that we hold [D]dear
So [E]don't call me, don't call me
I'm [B]doing all I [D]can
[E]Although it seems from where you sit
[B]I don't give a [D]damn."
[E]Back home they'll remember you in [B]papers, on [D]TV
[E]Because when you're caught you're left to rot
[B]Under a Beirut, [D]under a Beirut Moon

(Refr:)
[E]Under a Beirut Moon
[D]Sorry son, there's [D]nothing we can do

[E]Under a Beirut Moon
[D]Different rules, we [D]haven't got a clue

[E]And though you [G]dream of being f[D]ree
[E]There's not much [G]hope that I can [D]see
[B]Under a Beirut, [D]under a Beirut Moon
[E]Now just today on the news I saw
A [B]hostage walking [D]free
[E]He talked of how it came about
He [B]gained his l[D]iberty
He said, [E]don't give up, don't give up
[B]Argue, beg and [D]plead
[E]Keep the pressure up, don't let it drop
[B]Somehow you'll get f[D]ree
[E]He said the Americans would [B]bargain and [D]rescue
[E]But when Brits get caught they're left to rot
[B]Under a Beirut, [D]under the Beirut Moon
