[C5] [F5] [C5] [G5]  

Verse 1:
[C5]Searching for the b[F5]est break
[C5]The black forties could [G5]afford them
[C5]Came these ever-proud w[F5]orld-renowned
[F5]Rowdy, r[C5]oving [G5]men
[C5]With a firmness and a [F5]purpose
[C5]That so many did dis[G5]miss
[C5]Sailed these huddled human [F5]ballasts on their
[F5]stinking c[C5]offin [G5]ships
[F5]From the prison of their l[G5]onely hearts
[F5]They labored long and h[G5]ard
F5 G5 (start playing intro)
Working 18 hour days for the B.A.C.
Verse 2: play like verse 1
Intelligent, repectable
But made of modest means
With an independent spirit,
So full of hopes and dreams
Opportunity denied them in a
Doomed and starving land
Came these openhearted kindly spirits
Of a truly threatened man
Chorus: play like other chorus
From the prison of their lonely hearts
They labored long and hard
Working 18 hour days for the B.A.C.
Verse 3: mostly just bass, but the guitar plays in the spots where I put he chords
Searching for the best break
The black forties could afford them
Came these ever-proud world-renowned
[F5]Rowdy, r[C5]oving [G5]men
With a firmness and a purpose
That so many did dismiss
Sailed these [C5]huddled human ballasts on their
[F5]stinking c[C5]offin s[G5]hips
Chorus: play like other choruses
From the prison of their lonely hearts
They labored long and hard
Working 18 hour days for the B.A.C
The B.A.C.
The B.A.C.
The B.A.C.
[F5] [C5]  
That's it. There is actally a line after "They labored long and hard" but I
couldn't hear what they were saying in the song and all the lyrics that I found
didn't have it. Anyway, if you figure it out let me know. Later.
