AmThis one's for the shoeshine boy And the farmer in debt AmEach string is barbed wire Each chord is a threat GThis blues guy I met That never had a hit AmSaid you don't gotta be loud, son To be heavy as shit AmWell I'm the triggerman, baby And tonight I'll prove AmThat this machine here Well it kills fascists too GAnd don't be surprised If the sermon on the mount AmNext time is delivered In a little coffee house DmCause somebody here's Gotta let them know AmI doubt it's me But here I go DmI hit the button Tape started to roll AmThe song's got fire GBut it's got no soul CThere's a lonely strAmetch of blacktoGp GBetween here and home Am CDrop down into the vGalleAmy GPiano playin' inAm the living room FAnd when you see theAm white barn GYou'll know the journey's Amthrough CMy dog's barking inG the backsAmeat GCause he knows it too Am

Dm C G

AmYou'll need a fake passport And fix your disguise AmAnd don't fire, sugar Til you see the whites of their eyes GI turned the other cheek But now I'm through AmThe skin you're in Makes choices for you DmI was checking off names And I came late to dinner AmSeems the slices of pie Keep getting thinner and thinner GBrothers and sisters Rejoice and repent AmThe landlord's dead You can keep the rent DmYou got twelve fine friends But one of 'em's rotten AmThere's a hole out back Ain't got no bottom DmForty days in the wilderness Forty sleepless nights AmI'm confused, half blind GAnd sure I'm right CThere's a lonely strAmetch of blacktoGp GBetween here and home Am CDrop down into the vGalleAmy GPiano playin' inAm the living room FAnd when you see theAm white barn GYou'll know the journey's Amthrough CMy dog's barking inG the backsAmeat GCause he knows it too Am

Dm C G

DmOfficer please I won't be long AmCalled the radio station Requested this song DmI had my doubts About what I knew AmSo I turned it up GThen it sounded true AmKiss the ring If the Queen will let you AmBut come over the fence And the dogs will get you GOn a rope hung the traitor On a hook hung the meat AmYou and me are missing persons Til we'rCe counted in thGe streets AmSo seize the time And storm the tower GAnd come correct Maximum Firepower (continued) AmWith Maximum Firepower For the sins of the fathers The son he must pay AmThe Nightwatchman giveth And he tCaketh awGay DmThought hard about this next line Pretty sure it's true AmIf you take a step towards freedom It'll take two steps towards you DmSo mister I ain't scared And mister I ain't worried AmCause on that lonely strGetch of blacktop I sit as judge and jury CThere's a lonely strAmetch of blacktoGp GBetween here and home Am CDrop down into the vGalleAmy GPiano playin' inAm the living room FAnd when you see theAm white barn GYou'll know the journey's Amthrough CMy dog's barking inG the backsAmeat GCause he knows it too Am

Dm C G

AmThe clock strikes the hour Tonight we ride The clock strikes the hour Tonight we ride The clock strikes the hour Tonight we ride GYou've got three more seconds To choose Amsides
