Pamphleteer  The Weakerthans







[D5] [Cmaj7]  
I'm [Em]standing [D/F#]on this [G]corner.
[Am]Can't get [G]their a[D/F#]ttention.
[G]Facing r[D/F#]ush hour [Em]faces [D5]turned a[Cmaj7]round.
I c[Em]lutch my [D/F#]stack of p[G]aper, p[Am]ress one[G] to a [D/F#]chest,
then [G]watch it [D/F#]swoop and [Em]stutter[D5] to the[Cmaj7] ground.
I'm [Em]weary wit[D/F#]h right-[G]angles, ab[Am]breviat[G]ed d[D/F#]aylight,
and [G]waiting fo[D/F#]r a w[Em]inter [D5]to be[Cmaj7] done.
Why[Em] do I sti[D/F#]ll see you[G] in eve[Am]ry mirro[G]red wi[D/F#]ndow,
in a[G]ll that I [D/F#]could[Em] never ov[Cmaj7]ercome?
How [C]I don't know what I should [G/B]do wi[Am7]th my hands when I [G/B]talk to you.
How y[C]ou don't know where you should [G/B]look, [D/F#]so you look at my hand[G]s.
How m[C]ovements rise and then d[G/B]issolve, m[Am7]elted by our shallow b[G]reath.
How [C]causes dance awa[G/B]y from me.
I [D/F#]am your [D7/F#]pamphleteer.[Em] [D/F#]
[D5] [Cmaj7]  
Verse2:(like the 1st)
I walk this room in time to the beat of the Gestetner,
contemplate my next communique.
The rhetoric and treason of saying that I'll miss you.
Of saying "Hey, well maybe you should stay."
Chorus: (like the 1st)
Sing "Oh what force on earth could be weaker than the feeble strength of one"
like me remembering the way it could have been.
Help me with this barricade.
No surrender. No defeat.
A spectre's haunting Albert Street.
I am your pamphleteer.
