intro: A G, then D G (x6)
(Hugh plays a palm muted Dsus2 chord over the D and G of both the intro and the verses)
[D]How many times have you woken up and prayed for the [G]rain?
[D]How many times have you seen the papers apportion the [G]blame?
[A]Who gets to [G]say, [A]who gets the work and who gets to [G]play?
[A]I was always told at school [G]everybody should get the [A]same
(over the A and G sections of the verses, the following is played:)
[A] [G]  
 
 E|-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-7-|-3-3-3-5-5-5-5-5-|
 B|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|
 G|-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-|-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-|
 D|-----------------|-----------------|
 A|-----------------|-----------------|
 E|-----------------|-----------------|

(on the last A of the above verse the A part is played twice but on the second
time (where the G should be) instead of going from fret 5 to fret 7 on the high
E string extend your pinky to the 9th fret then back to the 7th - listen to the
recording to see what I mean (tip: it might help to barre the chord before extending
your finger to minimise damage!))
[D]How many times have you been told, if you don't ask you don't [G]get?
[D]How many liars have taken your money, your mother said you shouldn't [G]bet?
[A]And who has the [G]fun, [A]is it always the man with the [E]gun?
[G]Someone must have told him if you [Bm]work too hard you can [A]sweat
[Bm]There's always the [D]sun
[G]There's always the [Bm]sun
[D]Always, [Em]always, [G]always the [A]sun
[D]How many times have the weathermen told you stories that made you [G]laugh?
Y'know it's [D]not unlike the politicians and the leaders when they do things by [G]half
[A]And who gets the [G]job [A]of pushing the [E]knob?
[G]That sort of responsibility [Bm]you draw straws for, if you're mad e[A]nough
[Bm]There's always the [D]sun
[G]There's always the [Bm]sun
[D]Always, [Em]always, [G]always the [A]sun
[Bm]There's always the [D]sun
[G]There's always the [Bm]sun
[D]Always, [Em]always, [G]always the [A]sun
