Hold on Tight  The King Blues

Obviously it's a ska-y offbeat pattern, chord changes may not be in exactly the right
listen to the song for rhythm, blah blah. I think this is all correct, although I'm not
sure about that second chord in the bridge. Please correct if you figure out
anything wrong with it!
The King Blues - 'Hold On Tight'
(from the album 'Save The World, Get The Girl')
They say it [C]ain?t safe to go out anymore,
So the [Em]police station has bolted up the door,
The [Am]floor?s full of torn up betting stubs,
They [F]put televisions in my favourite pubs,
So our [C]homes get bulldozed, no-one watches,
They [Em]want soap operas and not soap boxes,
[Am] This town has left me high and dry,
[F] But I?ll be here til the day I die,
[Am] They tell me I?m just pissed off,
[F] Yeh maybe I?m pissed off,
[Am] I?d rather be pissed off,
[F] Than be pissed on,
[C] So if the [Em]world burns down outs[Am]ide,
And they [F]battle on the frontline,
[C] My darling I?ll [Em]hold on tight,
[Am] My darling I?ll [F]hold on tight,
As the world burns down outside,
And they battle on the frontline,
My darling I?ll hold on tight,
My darling I?ll hold on tight,
We beg for another show we can watch til we?re sick,
Just like a donkey chasing a carrot on a stick,
Watching our lives filmed in a soft focus,
With abracadabra and hocus pocus,
One billion channels and there?s still nothing on,
The television will not be revolutionised, the announcer says,
?And now for something completely indifferent?,
Cos [Dm]I demand my rock ?n? roll with blood, sweat and tears,
And [C]I demand my reggae to cause bleeding in my ears,
I demand my [Em]punk rock to start a revolution,
I demand my [F]hardcore to sound like an execution,
I demand [Dm]soundsystems on the streets playing the loudest tracks,
I [C]demand no rent, no bills, no council tax,
I demand [Em]love that isn?t measured by the [F]relationships of characters on Friends,
[G] Or the words to some dire R&B song about what a good man, what a mighty mighty good
So as the world burns down outside,
And they battle on the frontline,
My darling I?ll hold on tight,
My darling I?ll hold on tight.
