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?

 DA
 And you think you've got it worked out,
 DA
 And you think you've got it made,
 DA
 And you're trying to play the hero,
 DE
Oh, but you never walk home in the 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.

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

 DA
 Whatever happened to the great empire?
 GDGD
 You bastards have turned it into man - ure!
 AGE
 Tell the young to stick together 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.

 DA
 And you're trying to hide it from us,
 DEA
But you know what I mean,
 DA
 Bring forward the six pigs,
 DE
We wanna see them swing so high,

Liddle Towers!

(there then follows a short guitar solo:)

C'mon!

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

 GAA
--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.
