[E]Here's a [Emaj7]story about [E]the rooms of death or[Emaj7] glory to be [G#m]learned by heart by all children or
It's the[A] hour of the morning on the [C#m]day after the dawning when the[D] sun they said
would never set,
[B]it finally set again.
Was it [E]Cromwell or [Emaj7]Orwell who first [E]lead you to the stai[Emaj7]rwell which [G#m]leads only forever to
kingdoms to come?
Rushed alo[A]ne by guiding hands, whispers[C#m] on the promised land
They[D] wished you lock? and handed you a g[B]un
[C]Life could be so h[E]andsome
[C]Life could be so [E]gay
[C]We're going [E]nowhere
[D]But nowhere, nowhere is on ou[B]r way
In [E]the pub at [Emaj7]night rocking o[E]ut the lines of[Emaj7]...?
[G#m]Splitting to write all of the world's great tunes
Yes we [A]thought that they were brothers then they [C#m]half murdered each other, then they [D]did a
karaoke turn and [B]murdered our best song
[E]Told the (?) of his [Emaj7]wife about the last [E]night of his[Emaj7] life, she turn[G#m]ed away in tears called you a liar
Where are a[A]ll your dreams now? The[C#m] battalions weren't so proud, [D]lost in some old song and hanging [B]off the old
barbed wire
[C]Well life could be so [E]handsome
[C]It's all going to be o[E]kay
[C]We're going [E]nowhere
[D]But nowhere, nowhere is on ou[B]r way
 E - C - E - C - E - C - D - B

Nowher[E]e in the instit[Emaj7]utions, so they t[E]each the revolu[Emaj7]tion
[G#m]Something that could ever come to pass
All we t[A]ried once before was the king's [C#m]head on the floor

[C]Life could be so h[E]andsome
[C]Life could be [E]okay
[C]We're going [E]nowhere
