We were watching T[G]V, Watching T[Em7]V
We were watching T[G]V, Watching T[Em7]V
[Cadd9] [A7]  
[Cadd9] [A7]  
[Cadd9] [C/B] [A7] [D]  
In Tiananmen Squa[G]re, Lost my baby t[Em7]here
My yellow r[G]ose, In her bloodstained cl[Em7]othes
She was a [Cadd9]short order p[A7]astry chef
In a [Cadd9]Dim Sum dive on the Yangt[A7]ze tideway
She had [Cadd9]shiny hair[G/B]
She was the[A7] daughter of an engineer[D]
Won't you shed a [G]tear, For my yellow r[Em7]ose
My yellow ro[G]se, In her bloodstained [Em7]clothes
She had [Cadd9]perfect breasts, She had [A7]high hopes
She had [Cadd9]almond eyes, She had [A7]yellow thighs
She was a [C]student[C/B] of ph[A7]ilosophy[D]
Won't you grieve with [G]me, [G/F#]for my y[Em7]ellow rose,
Shed a tear,[G] [G/F#] [Em7] For her bloodstained cl[D]othes
She had [G]shiny hai[G/F#]r, She had [Em7]perfect breasts
She had[Cadd9] high hopes,[C/B] She had[A7] almond eyes[D]
She had [G]yellow thigh[G/F#]s
She was the [Em7]daughter of an engineer[D]
So get out your [G]pistols, Get out your stone[C]s
Get out your kn[G]ives, Cut them to the bo[C]ne
They are the [G]lackeys o[G/F#]f the groce[Em7]r's machine
They built the [G]dark satanic mills[C]
That manu[G]facture hell on earth[C]
They bought the [G]front row[G/F#] seats on Ca[Em7]lvary
They are [C]irrelevant to me[D]
**D **Ddim5
And I grieve for my sister
People of China
Do not forget do not forget
The children who died for you
Long live the Republic
Did we do anything after this
I've a feeling we did
We were watching T[G]V, Watching T[Em7]V
We were watching T[G]V, Watching T[Em7]V
She wore a [Cadd9]white bandanna that said 'F[A7]reedom now'
She thought the[Cadd9] Great Wall of China
Would co[A7]me tumbling down
[G]She was a studen[G/F#]t
Her f[Em7]ather was an engin[D]eer
Won't you shed a t[G]ear, For my yellow r[Em7]ose
My yellow ro[G]se, In her bloodstained cl[Em7]othes
Her [Cadd9]grandpa fought old C[A7]hiang Kai-shek
That[Cadd9] no-good low-down di[A7]rty rat
Who [C]used to order his [C/B]troops
To f[A7]ire on the women and [D]children
Imagine that imagine that
An[G]d in the spring of '4[Em7]8
Ma[G]o Tse-tung got quite ira[Em7]te
An[G]d he kicked that[G/F#] old dictator[Em7] Chiang
Out of the [D]state of China
Ch[G]iang Kai-shek came down in F[Em7]ormosa
[G]And they armed the island of Q[A7]uemoy
And the [G]shells were flying across the China Sea
And they [Em7]turned Formosa into a [C]shoe factory[C/B] called[A7] Taiwa[D]n
And she is [G]different from Cro-M[Cadd9]agnon man
She's [G]different from A[Cadd9]nne Boleyn
She is [G]different [G/F#]from the Ros[Em7]enbergs
And f[D]rom the unknown Jew
[G]She is different from the[Cadd9] unknown Nicara[G]guan
[Cadd9]Half superstar [G]half victim[G/F#]
She's a [Em7]victor star co[Cadd9]nceptually new[D]
[G]And she is different from the [Cadd9]Dodo
[G]And from the Kankanbo[Cadd9]no
[G]She is different [G/F#]from the Azt[Em7]ec
And f[D]rom the Cherokee
Sh[G]e's everybody's [Cadd9]sister
S[G]he's symbolic of our fai[Cadd9]lure
She's[G] the one in[G/F#] fifty mill[Em7]ion
Who can [Cadd9]help us to be free[D]
Because she died on TV[G]
