Harp  Stiff Little Fingers

Don\'t p[G]ity this poor immigrant
My eyes were open when I caught the bo[D]at
All I w[G]anted was your shelter, and maybe just a little h[D]ope
But you t[Em]urned your anger on me for the c[G]ourage that you lack
I don\'t w[Bm]ant your half-assed freedom
You can h[A]ave the whole deal back
Now l[Em]et me tell you something
Let\'s get t[G]his straight from the start
Don\'t call me ha[D]rp, don\'t call me harp

[D] [D]  [D]  [D]

VERSE 2:(same chords)

You said \"Bring m[G]e your poor and destitute
And I can kick them when they\'re do[D]wn\"
Cause there\'s alw[G]ays enough misery
And we\'ll be sure to share it ro[D]und
Now I\'ll tu[Em]rn my anger on you for the dec[G]ency you lack
For the mor[Bm]als you fail to uphold, your co[A]caine, crack and smack
To the l[Em]and that wears it\'s heart up front
I\'m scre[G]aming from the back
Don\'t call me ha[D]rp, don\'t call me harp

VERSE 3:(and again)
And the ghetto\'s almost full now
It\'s time the trash was moved uptown
And the sight of all those beggers on the streets
Must really get you down
Soon they\'ll turn their anger on you for the promises you broke
For all the lies you told them as their dreams went up in smoke
And I feel I stand among them as I shout this from the heart
Don\'t call me harp, don\'t call me harp

BRIDGE:
You bu[E5]ilt your land on principles d[D5(2]ecent, brave and true
I f[Bm]ind it hard to understand just w[D5(2]hat went wrong with [E5]you
Don\'t call me ha[D]rp, don\'t call me harp

Then there\'s a solo on the electric guitar where the acoustic just continually plays A*.
that repeat the first verse to the outro which, again, just repeats A*.
