100 Years of Solitude  Levellers

100 years of solitude - Levellers
From eponymous album
It like to play the song using barre chords: Bm(VII), A(V), G(III) D(V)
and Bm(II) in the "things you learnt" bit
you could use power (5th) chords. They often use "normal" open position chords live
[////]Bm |[////] G |[////]D |[////]A
Bm (N.C) fade out w/vol or whatever
All around you slow decay
Wanna feel the sun of a new day
Forget all tme chances lost
Shedding innocence like falling dust
All the [Bm]things you learned too [G]young
The [Bm]songs you knew but [G]never sung
[Bm]Waited a long time and [G]wasted more
For[D]gotten what you [A]waited for
Ex[Bm]cuse me [A]ma'am for [G]being so rude
Feels like [D]100 years of [A]solitude
My [Bm]mind is [A]numb but my [G]mouth's ok
And you can l[D]isten or [A]walk away
Bm | G |D |A x2
Bm (N.C)
No solutions built to last
Just your petty scores to settle fast
The n.m.e was nothing to y[G]ou
And the m[D]aker, well the ma[A]ker of who
This [Bm]walkman gene[G]ration
In [Bm]search of sweet sed[G]ation
While [Bm]forests choke under a'[G]lever sky
And the e[D]xxon birds that'll [A]never fly
(BRIDGE) (in octaves) B D E

[E]We tried, we cried. We fell. We lied
This life's like a white knuckle ride
(N.C) G
Crack babies born too young
And[D] l.a. kids who da[A]nce to the gun
So fo[Bm]rget this so called [G]dirt of mine
It's tust the [Bm]dust and diesel of [G]passing time
It's [Bm]all around you - a t[G]ragedy, look
So for[D]get the cover and [A]read the book.
Bm | G |D |A x2
E5 Palm Muted then as Bridge to End
Have fun!
oh if anyone can tell me what is meant by the whole "a'lever sky" and "exxon birds" (or any) bit
please tell me!
its been buggin me for ages
