Always the Sun

Stranglers

--------------


 DG
 How many times have you woken up and prayed for the rain?
 DG
 How many times have you seen the papers apportion the blame?
 AGAG
 Who gets to say, who gets the work and who gets to play?
 AGA
 I was always told at school everybody should get the same

(over the A and G sections of the verses, the following is played:)

 AG
E|-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-7-|-3-3-3-5-5-5-5-5-|
B|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|
G|-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-|-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-|
D|-----------------|-----------------|
A|-----------------|-----------------|
E|-----------------|-----------------|


(on the last A of the above verse the A part is played twice but on the second
time (where the G should be) instead of going from fret 5 to fret 7 on the high
E string extend your pinky to the 9th fret then back to the 7th - listen to the
recording to see what I mean (tip: it might help to barre the chord before extending
your finger to minimise damage!))

 DG
 How many times have you been told, if you don't ask you don't get?
 DG
 How many liars have taken your money, your mother said you shouldn't bet?
 AGAE
 And who has the fun, is it always the man with the gun?
 GBmA
 Someone must have told him if you work too hard you can sweat

 BmD
 There's always the sun
 GBm
 There's always the sun
 DEmGA
 Always, always, always the sun

 DG
 How many times have the weathermen told you stories that made you laugh?
 DG
Y'know it's not unlike the politicians and the leaders when they do things by half
 AGAE
 And who gets the job of pushing the knob?
 GBmA
 That sort of responsibility you draw straws for, if you're mad enough

 BmD
 There's always the sun
 GBm
 There's always the sun
 DEmGA
 Always, always, always the sun
 BmD
 There's always the sun
 GBm
 There's always the sun
 DEmGA
 Always, always, always the sun
