Ideology  Billy Bragg




[A] [577655] [C#m]B2 [446654]799877
When[E] one voice rules the na[E2]tion
Just becau[E]se they're top of the p[E2]ile
[E]Doesn't mean their visi[E2]on is [B]the cl[E]ear[E2]est
(repeat pattern)
The voices of the people
Are falling on deaf ears
Our politicians all become careerists
[A]They must declare their interests
[E]But not their company cars
Is there [E]more to a seat in the Par[C#m]liament
Than [F#m]sitting on your a[B2]rse
(pattern 1)
And the best of all this bad bunch
Are shouting to be heard
Above the sound of ideologies clashing
(pattern 1)
Outside the patient millions
Who put them into power
Expect a little more back for their taxes
(pattern 1)
Like schools books,beds in hospitals
And peace in our bloody time
All they get is old men grinding axes
(pattern 2)
Who've built their private fortunes
On the things they can rely
The courts,the secret handshake
The Stock Exchange and the old school tie
(pattern 1)
For God and Queen and Country
All things they justify
Above the sound of ideologies clashing
(pattern 1)
God bless the Civil Service
The nations saving grace
While we expect democracy
They're laughing in our face
And although our cries get louder
Their laughter gets louder still
Above the sound of ideologies clashing
finish on C#m
more to come - eventually.
