Intro: G 320033

G
It was a birthday gift
C
of a Mexican Telecaster
G
And from this day on I will play along
C
to all my young pioneers records
G C
And there will be a poetry spoken silently between me and the stereo
G
I’ll work mornings
C
and you can work through the night

chorus: (loud and hard) :)
G C
Mary, there is no hope for us
D
If this GM van don’t make it
across the state line
C
we might as well lay down and die
G
Because if Florida takes us
C
we’re taking everyone down with us
D
Where we’re coming from (yeah)
C
will be the death us

G

G
And I cannot help but hold on
C
to a handful of times
when what was spoken
G
was a revolution in itself,
and what we were doing
C
was the only thing that mattered
Em D
And how good it felt
C
to kill the memory of nights spent
Em
holding your shirt for the smell
D
I heard you used to cry
C
when you made love to him
but this band will play on
Em D
Because all we can do is what we’ve always done.
C Em D C
And on and on and on…[lot of times] :)

Chorus: play one time loud and hard (with a fire :), then one time sing with claping
hands, without music and then as loud as you can with all guitar and drums power :)
Listen to the song first and you’ll get it. :) Bass part isn’t hard to play. Just play
these chords basic notes together with guitar melody. :) Understand? Simple. It’s one of
the best Against Me songs – playing with a fire in side.
