GmHey there son of AdGam GmHey there daughter ofG Eve GmHelp me sing this tear gas Griot song GmTo some fresh faced pGolice FThey won't even know what hit 'em When they lift their Roman shades GmWhen the people's song comes pouring in on a Dmbrand new day Gm GmNow, you who dam the Griver GmYou who change a mountaiGn's name GmFirst we marched to ralGly back GmNow we're taking down WashingGton state FIn death there's a consolation You know only hate and rage EmYou paid a dowry for your child's rights DmNow she's living like a slave Gm GmA prayer came down the wGire GmAnd it was all in the enemy's cGode GmYou couldn't figure out what mercGy meant GmUntil you did like you were Gtold FWhen they finally sent the doctors Once the fireball went out GmThere was nothing left but the cockroaches DmIn a movie with no sound Gm BWhat good, what gooFd are youGm? BWith your cynical flag and your RFoosevelt room Gm BWhat good, what gooFd are youGm? BWith your Cherokee trail Fand your Arlington tombGm Yeah, go ask Hunter Thompson Yeah, go ask Hemmingway's ghost It all catches up with you Once you get just a little too old Take a hard look in the mirror It's a thing that you did not see The shadow's long But the day is young It just wasn't meant to be There's no blankets for the winter There's no oil in the lamp And I'd like to write my congressman But I can't afford the stamp You want me to pay my taxes So you can propagate your lies While there's barefoot dudes down in New Orleans Looking like they're gonna die Yeah, you who quote the legends You who poisoned all of my dreams You pinned all of the medals on All those boys from Omaha Beach Hope you haven't got too lazy I know you like your apple pie But the working poor you've been pissing on Are doing double shifts tonight What good, what good are you? With your cynical flag and your Roosevelt room What good, what good are you? With your Cherokee trail and your Arlington tomb
