| Add9 | |[cb]Dm6/A[/cb] | |
|G/A A | G/A |[cb]Dm6/A[/cb] | |
[Aadd9] Front rooms Back rooms
Slide into tables
Crowd into bathrooms
[F#9] Joke around Cheap talk
[A/G] Deep talk Talk, talk, talk around the [Aadd9]clock
Crawl home,Lie down
Teeth chatter Heart pounds
[F#9] I don't feel so good I don't feel so good
[A/G] Push a button to escape
Preacher on the tube crying "L[A]ord!"
[cb]Dm6/F[/cb] G/B
There's evil in this land
"Rock and roll music!")
"Cast [A/C#]down these dope-fiends
And there n[Ebm7-5]oisy bands!"
"Damn their souls!"
Preacher [Esus4]preaching love like [E]vengeance
[cb]Dsus4/E[/cb] D/E
Preaching love like hate
[Esus4] Calling for large don[E]ations
[cb]Dsus4/E[/cb] D/E
Promising es tates
[Esus4] Rolling lawns and [E]angel bands
[cb]Dsus4/E[/cb] D/E
Behind the pearly gates
[Esus4] He will have his [E]in this life
[cb]Dsus4/E[/cb] D
But yours will have to wait
He's imm[Add9]aculately tax free
("Mulitiple hundreds of thousands of ...")
[cb]Dm6/F[/cb] Add9
Tax free
("Hundreds and millions of dollars")
Tax free[G/A] [A]
("A hundred billion dollars![E/F#]
And who is paying the price?
Who, who
("Your children are")
[Aadd9] Pissed off
Jacked up
Scream into the mike
Spit into the loving [F#9]cup
Strut like a rooster
March like a man
[A/G] God's hired hands and the devil bands
Packing the same grands[Aadd9]tands
Different clothes
("Pot in their pockets!")
Different hair
("Sexually active")
Raise a screaming guitar or a bible in the air
[F#9] Theatre of anguish
Theatre of glory
[A/G] God's hired hands and the devil bands
Oh come let us a[Aadd9]dore---ME!
[cb]Dm6/F[/cb] G/B
Lord, there's danger in this land
You get witch-[A/C#]hunts and wars
When church and [Ebm7-5]state hold hands
Fuck it!
[Esus4] Tonight I'm going [E]dancing
[cb]Dsus4/E[/cb] D/E
With the drag queens and the punks
[Esus4]Big beat de l[E]iver me
[cb]Dsus4/E[/cb] D/E
From this sanctimonious skunk
[Esus4] We're no flaming [E]angels
[cb]Dsus4/E[/cb] D
And he's not heaven sent
[Esus4] How can he speak for the [E]Prince of Peace
[cb]Dsus4/E[/cb] D/E
When he's hawk-right militant
And he's [Add9] immaculately
tax free
("Our nation has lost its guts!")
Save me
[G/A] [A] ("Our nation has lost its strength")
[G/A]Tax f[A]ree
("Our nation has whimpered and cried")
Save me
[Add9] ("And petted the Castros")
Tax free
("The Khomeinis' and the Kaddafis'")
Save me
[G/A] [Aadd9] ("For so long")
Tax free
("That we don't know how to act like a man")
Save me[E/F#]
"I think that we should turn the United States Marines
loose on that little island south of Florida and
stop that problem!"
"I am preachin' love, I am!"
