No Man's Land  Soul Asylum

No Man's Land
Soul Asylum
(Dave Pirner)


From: Tone M
Intro/Verse: G (alternate 320003 320033)
In a town without a name
There is no shame, no fame to claim
One fine day the pilgrims came
And made new rules for an old game
[F]And I'm waiting for the garbage man [G]to take you away
[F]And I'm searching for my playground [G]so I can go and play
So they built a big smoke stack
They built a railroad track, they paved the dirt roads black
And they did it behind your back
And now you pay their tax, hoping something cracks
And I'm waiting for the garbage man to take you away
And I'm searching for my playground so I can go and play
[G]From out of the[C] dust came corr[F]osion and rust
[F]That made you l[C]ook so c[G]heap
[G]There's nothing[C] to have here a[F]nd nothing to hold here
[F]And nothing tha[C]t you ca[G]n keep
[C]Now understand this is[G] no man's land
And it's[D] all that's left that'[G]s free
[C]Where the kings of nothing ru[G]le, my friend
And you [D]can't make me l[G]eave
There's a billboard in the sky
Reflecting water in your eyes
This big city, this ghost town
Will come crumbling to the ground
And I'm waiting for the hurricane to blow you away
And I'm searching for my twister to twist you into shape
Now my speech is said and done
The circus came, I've had my fun
And the wasteland has been won
And the building has begun
And I'm waiting for the earthquake to shake you down
And I see my mother nature coming to slap you around
