Eisler on the Go  Billy Bragg

Hi everyone! This is a great song written by Woodie Gunthrie and performed by Billy
and Wilco. It's written about a German composer who was expelled from Germany in 1932
he dealt with leftist parties. He came to Hollywood in 1939 and composed music for
major films. Cool huh?
Remember: Capo the 2nd fret and fill in with Am and A7
[Am]Eisler on the go, [F]Eisler on the move
[F]Brother is on a [G]vinegar truck
and I d[Am]on't know what 'll do
[Am]I don't know what I'll do,
[F]I don't know what I'll do
[F]Eisler's on the [G]come and go
and I [Am]don't what I'll do
[Am]Eisler on the farm, [F]Eisler on the town
[F]Sister in the [G]ticky bush
[Am]and I don't know what I'll do
[Am]Eisler on the boat, [F]Eisler on the ship
[F]Daddy on the [G]henhouse roof
and I [Am]don't know what I'll do
[Am]Eisler in the jailoe, [F]Eisler back at home,
[F]Rankin scratch his [G]head and cry
[Am]and I don't know what I'll do
[Am]Eisler him write music, [F]Eisler him teach school
[F]Truman he don't [G]play so good
and I [Am]don't know what I'll do
Good? Bad? Let me
