I saw a newspaper picture from the political campaign
              Em   Bm/D   A/C#               C           G
A woman was kissing a child, who was obviously in pain
                Em Bm/D A/C#               C                             G
SHe spills w/ compassion, as that young child's face in her hands she grips
                Em Bm/D   A/C#       C                       G       C  
Can you imagine all that greed and avarice coming down on that childs lips
                        G   D/F#   Em   D  
Well I hope you don't die too soon
            C                 G
I pray the Lord my soul to save
          Em Bm/D A/C#       C               G
Oh I'll be a good boy, I'll try so hard to behave
                  Em Bm/D   A/C#                       C               G
Because there's one thing I know, I'd like to live long enough to savor
          C   Bm   Am   G   Am               G
That's when they finally put you in the ground
        C     Bm Am   G         Am               G       D
I'll Stand on your grave and tramp the dirt down
      D                 Em           D/F#   G(?)             D
When England was the whore of the world   Margaret was her madam
                            Em           D/F#         Em(?)     G
And the future looked as brigh and as clear as the black tarmacadam
G                                                                         C  
Well I hope that she sleeps well at night, isn't haunted by every tiny detail
Am                       E/G#   G                 D/F#       Em               D
Cos when she held that lovely face in her hands all she thought was betrayal

And now the cynical ones say that it all ends  
  the same in the long run  
  Try telling that to the desperate father who just  
  squeezed the life from his only son  
  And how it's only voices in your head and  
  dreams you never dreamt  
  Try telling him the subtle difference between  
  justice and contempt  
  Try telling me she isn't angry with this pitiful  
  When they flaunt it in your face as you line up  
  for punishment  
  And then expect you to say "Thank you"  
  straighten up, look proud and pleased  
  Because you've only got the symptoms, you  
  haven't got the whole disease  
  Just like a schoolboy, whose head's like a tin-can  
  filled up with dreams then poured down  
  the drain  
  Try telling that to the boys on both sides, being  
  blown to bits or beaten and maimed  
  Who takes all the glory and none of the shame  

Well I hope you live long now, I pray the Lord  
  your soul to keep  
  I think I'll be going before we fold our arms  
  and start to weep  
  I never thought for a moment that human life  
  could be so cheap  
  'Cos when they finally put you in the ground  
  They'll stand there laughing and tramp the  
  dirt down  

Don't feel as though you have to play all the chords, I change it up every time  
and just play what feels right, hope you all enjoy :)
