The Great Deception  Van Morrison

Intro:
[A]  
Verse 1:
Did you ever hear a-[F#m]bout The G[E]reat De-c[D]eption?
[A] Well, the plastic revolutionaries take the money and [F#m]run.
[A] Have you ever been [F#m]down t[E]o Love C[D]ity?
[F#m] Where they rip you off with a smile, and it d[E]on't take a g[A]un.
Verse 2:
[A] Don't it hurt so [F#m]bad i[E]n Love c[D]ity?
[A] Don't it make you not want to bother at [F#m]all?
And don't they [A]look [F#m]so s[E]elf r[D]ighteous,
When they [F#m]pin you up a-g[E]ainst the w[A]all?
Chorus 1:
Did you [E]ever, ever see the [D]people,
With the [C#m]tear drops in their e[D]yes?
I just [E]can't stand it, stand it [D]no how,
C#m A (n.D)
Living in this world of lies.
Verse 3:
Did you ever hear a-[F#m]bout the R[E]ock and Roll s[D]ingers?
[A] Got three or four Cadil-[F#m]lacs.
Saying [A]power to the [F#m]people, d[E]ance to the [D]music;
[F#m] Wants you to pat him o[E]n the b[A]ack.
Verse 4:
Have you ever heard a-[F#m]bout the g[E]reat R[D]embrandt?
Have you ever heard a-[A]bout how he could [F#m]paint?
And he didn't have e-[A]nough [F#m]money f[E]or his b[D]rushes;
And they [F#m]thought it was r[E]ather q[A]uaint.
Chorus 2:
( Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/v/van_morrison/the_great_deception_crd.html )
But you [E]know it's no use re-[D]peating,
And you [C#m]know it's no use to t[D]hink about it.
E D A (n.D)
'Cos when you stop to think a-bout it; you don't need it.
Verse 5:
Have you ever heard a-[F#m]bout the g[E]reat,
[D] Hollywood motion picture actor,
[A] Who knew more than they [F#m]did?
And the [A]newspapers [F#m]didn't c[E]over the s[D]tory;
[F#m] Just decided to k[E]eep it h[A]id.
Verse 6:
Somebody [F#m]started s[E]aying it was an i[D]nside job;
[A] Whatever happened to [F#m]him?
[A] Last time they [F#m]saw him, d[E]own on the b[D]ow'ry;
With his [F#m]lip hanging off an old r[E]usty bottle of g[A]in.
Verse 7:
Have you ever heard a-[F#m]bout the s[E]o-called H[D]ippies?
[A] Down on the far side of the [F#m]tracks.
They take the [A]eyeballs [F#m]straight o[E]ut of your h[D]ead,
Say son, [F#m]kid, do you want your e[E]yeballs b[A]ack?
Chorus 3:
Did you [E]ever, ever see the [D]people,
With the [C#m]tear drops in their e[D]yes?
I just [E]can't stand it, stand it [D]no how,
C#m A (n.D)
Living in this world of lies.
Verse 8:
Did you ever hear a-[F#m]bout The G[E]reat De-c[D]eption?
[A] Well, the plastic revolutionaries take the money and [F#m]run.
[A] Have you ever been [F#m]down t[E]o Love C[D]ity?
[F#m] Where they rip you off with a smile, and it d[E]on't take a g[A]un.
