After the Rush Hour  Million Dead

Intro
C, Am, G, Em (x2)
Verse 1
[C]I am the sm[Am]all town linesman
[G]And you'll find me out [Em]here on the line.
[C]Searching ceaselessly to sim[G]ply
Find a pla[Am]ce i can[G] call [C]mine.
Every corn[Am]er of this cou[G]ntry
Criss-crossed out [Em]with coloured line[C]s.
The city l[G/C]ies before me,
[G]Another city spr[Am]awling o[G]ut beh[C]ind.
Chorus
Cos I?m a frontiers man,[Em] [C]
Trapped in suburban Englan[Em]d.
Verse 2
[C]Since the S[Am]cramble ended,
Sinc[G]e the West was won o[Em]n wagon trails,
[C]It seems the Mazzini's paradisica[G]l
Panop[Am]tico[G]n preva[C]iled.
My walkabouts [Am]no longer take m[G]e
Beyond a cho[Em]ice of different jails.[C]
Why should i have [G/C]to choose a state
[G]When every one o[Am]f them h[G]as failed?[C]
Chorus
Cos I?m a frontiers man,[Em] [C]
Trapped in suburban Englan[Em]d.
Build Up to Bridge
[Dm]And i promise not to overt[C]hrow the state
D(slide up C shape)
If allowed to redraw the atlas before
I [Dm]emi[C]grate.
Bridge
So I have sailed the seven seas alone,
Trying to find a shore I can call home.
But all i found are different flags,
Double-speaking diplomats, and
I do not have time for that.
So I'll declare my own sovereign state, - I cant figure out the bridge =(
The borders based on the
Bottoms of my boots,
And i will open embasies
Wherever the hell i please,
And at assemblies
You will see me sat
But never on my knees.
Chorus
Cos I?m a frontiers man,[Em] [C]
Trapped in suburban Englan[Em]d.
Build Up to Bridge
[Dm]And i promise not to overt[C]hrow the state
D(slide up C shape)
If allowed to redraw the atlas before
I [Dm]emi[C]grate.
[Dm]And I'd gladly leave your Met[C]ternich's alone
D(slide up C shape)
As long as where
I lay my head i can be my very o[Dm]wn.[C]
(Repeat Intro)
I am the Winchester lineman.
Chorus
Cos I?m a frontiers man,[Em] [C]
Trapped in suburban [Em]England.
Coda
[C]But here I will [Em]not remain-
[C]No I'll ride into the sunset,
Where my hor[Em]se waits on the plai[Dm]n,
C slide to D
 
 And I keep walking the li --------- ine.
