Four Score & Seven ?? Titus Andronicus

Capo on 5

[Csus4]  
[Csus4]There'll be no more counting the cars on the garden state [C]parkway
Nor waiting for the [Csus4]Fung Wah bus to carry me to who-knows-[C]where
[Csus4]And when I stand tonight, 'neath the lights of the [C]Fenway
Will I not [Csus4]yell like hell for the glory of the Newark [C]Bears?
[Csus4]'Cause where I'm going to now, no one can ever [C]hurt me
[Csus4]Where the well of human hatred is shallow and [C]dry
[Csus4]No, I never wanted to change the world, but I'm [C]looking for a new New Jersey
[C]'Cause tramps like us, [Am]baby, we were born to [Csus4]die
Interlude (1:45)

Verse 2
[C]  
[Csus4]I'm doing 70 on 17, I'm doing [E5]80 over 84
[C]And I'll never let the Meritt Parkway magnetize me no[Csus4] more
Give me a brutal Somerville summer, give me a cruel New England [E5]winter
Give me the [C]great Pine Barrens so I can see them turned into [Csus4]splinters
[Csus4]'Cause if I come in on a donkey
Let me go out on a gurn[E5]ey
[C]I want to realize too late I never should have left New [Csus4]Jersey

Slide occasionally from 3 to 20, slowly, as riff builds
[Csus4]I sense the enemy
They're rustling around in the trees
Oh, I thought I had gotten away
But they followed me to 02143
Woe, woe is me
No one knows the trouble I see
When they hang Jeff Davis from a sour apple tree
I'll sit beneath the leaves and weep
None of us shall be saved
Every man will be a slave
For John Brown's body lies a'mouldring in the grave
And there's rumblings down in the cave
So if it's time for choosing sides
And to show this dirty city how we do the Jersey Slide
And if it deserves a better class of criminal
Then I'm'a give it to them tonight
So we'll rally around the flag, rally around the flag
Rally around the flag, boys, rally once again, shouting the Battle Cry of Freedom
Rally around the flag, rally around the flag
Glory, glory, hallelujah, His truth is marching on
