Time For Truth  Jam


































[A]                                     
[A]What you trying to say that you haven't tried to say before?
You're just another red balloon with a lot of hot gas,
Why don't you fuck off?

[D]And you think you've got it [A]worked out,
[D]And you think you've got [A]it made,
[D]And you're trying to play the [A]hero,
Oh, but you [D]never walk home in the [E]dark.

[A]I think it's time for truth, and the truth is you've lost, Uncle Jimmy,
Admit you're a failure and decline with honour while you can.

[D]And you think you've got it [A]sussed out, (Hah!)
[D]And you [E]think that we're [A]brainwashed, (No way!)
[D]And you're trying to form a [A]police state,
So you can [D]rule our bodies and [E]minds.

[D]Whatever happened to the [A]great empire?
[G]You bastards have turned it [D]into ma[G]n - [D]ure!
[A]Tell the young to [G]stick together [E]now.

[A]I bet you sleep at nights in silk sheets, and a clean mind,
While killer roam the streets in numbers, dressed in blue.

[D]And you're trying to hide it [A]from us,
[D]        [E]          [A]                   
But you know what I mean,
[D]Bring forward the [A]six pigs,
We wanna [D]see them swing so [E]high,

Liddle Towers!

(there then follows a short guitar solo:)

C'mon!

repeat the guitar solo up to the bar and then play:

  [G]           [A]                    [A]                                                            
--3--3--3--3/5--               --5---|
--3--3--3--3/5--               --5---|
--4--4--4--4/6--               --6---|
--5--5--5--5/7-- (x4) then...  --7---| (x4 - last time let ring)
--5--5--5--5/7--               --7---|
--3--3--3--3/5--               --5---|



NB: Liddle Towers: Weller shouts this before the guitar solo, Liddle Towers died in
police custody in late 1976, the coroner's verdict of 'misadventure'
led the newspapers to demand a full enquiry.
