New World  Soul Asylum

 

Great song. The trick is in the time changes; the verses are in 5/4,
the bridge and chorus in 3/4. (The chords are easier than they look.)
This is slightly modified from a songbook version. D7+ is D7
augmented, i.e. with a sharped 5th: xx0312. The book has it with a
Bb in the bass--D7+5/A#, or x10312--which I find a pain to play.

INTRO (and verse riff) in 5/4, like this: G G G C C/D G G G C C/D
[G] Lives in a little [C]lone[C/D]ly [G]town
[C]No [C/D]one's a[G]round, ex[C]cept [C/D]for the [G]drinking[C] [C/D]
[G] Nobody ever [C]gets [C/D]a - [G]round
C C/D G C C/D G C (rhythm change)
But those who leave the township sinking
BRIDGE: [(C)]May you [Bm]rot [D7] in[Am7] heaven[D]
Got to [Bm]be [D7]home by[Am7] seven[D]

The [C]sky [G/B]breathes it [Am]in
So [D]why sit and [G]wait
C G D G C C/D (back to verse rhythm)
For the new world to begin?
I'm coming out across your borders
With new orders for you to take
I'd really like to take out your daughter
Down by the water, down by the lake

I can feel how long it's been
CHORUS: And the neighbors will all be there
And no one will know what to wear
So why sit and wait
For the new world to begin?
INSTRUMENTAL: follows chords of next verse
I got a lot I got to do
Just to get through the end of the day
[A] It hardly ever [D]e-[D/E]ven [A]happens
D D/E D C (9 fr.)
But I go to sleep the same anyway
INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE: Bm D7 Am7 D
CHORUS: And you can't believe in yourself
You can't believe in anyone else
So why sit and wait
For the new world to begin?
