F C G●Verse 1 bCad luck just weDmaves through the cGity, but it's Fkeeping Caway from uGs we move at a crawl through the traffic and water street is humming along with me and cecilia singing and banging on the dashboard in time, we sing the words on her father's gravestone and he's there in the humid light...singing: ●Chorus Amdon't let the Gbastards grind you down... (3x) ●Verse 2 (same as verse 1) good luck's in town for the weekend so we stumble around until dawn daylight just melts through the narrows and those morning birds are humming along with me and cecilia singing and stamping on the asphalt to prove we are the children of strength and of vigor we were born in the morning blue...singing: ●Chorus (same as last chorus) don't let the bastards grind you down... (3x) ●Interlude when you're Call, 'Jesus Murphy' and 'AGve Maria' and 'sAmend me the courage', and 'Flet me be delivered' cause there's devils among us, there's devils living among us some have not got their teeth up, and some are ashes and near-dust and they're riding the freeways, and they're locking their front door at dusk and they're raising their families, and they're raising their fingers at us but this is a good town, this here is a heavy ancient thing this is a new land, this here is a thing they'll never see when they're all 'Jesus Murphy' and 'Ave Maria' and 'send me the courage', and 'let me be delivered' but Amdon't let the Gbastards grind you down (4x) ●Outro Cbad luck just Dmweaves through theG city but it's Fkeeping aCway from uGs.
