Intro: D  D/A  D/F#  D  G   A  A/E  (If you pluck the bottom note of each chord 
and then the top three strings, it sounds like how Frank plays the intro)
         D (xx0232@1)                 D/A (x00232@1)       D/F# (200232@1)           DWell (xx0232@1)a teacher of mine once told me that life was just a list of 
    G (320003@1)                                    A (x02220@1)         A/Edisappointments (002220@1)and defeats and you could only do your best, 
                  D (xx0232@1)              D/A (x00232@1)                D/F# (200232@1)   
And I said "Well, that's a fucking cop-out, you're just washed up and you're 
D (xx0232@1)             G (320003@1)                        Atired, (x02220@1)and when I get to your age, well, I won't be such a coward" 
          Em (022000@1)                         G (320003@1)                BmBut (x24432@1)these days I sit at home, known to shout at my TV and Punk Rock didn't 
                  Alive (x02220@1)up to what I hoped that it could be 
            Em (022000@1)                               GAnd (320003@1)all the things that I believed with all my heart when I was young are 
     Bm (x24432@1)                         Ajust (x02220@1)coasters for beers and clean surfaces for drugs 
      G (320003@1)           Em (022000@1)              G (320003@1)           A (x02220@1)            D (xx0232@1)And I packed all my pamphlets with my bibles at the back of the shelf

D/A (x00232@1)D/F# (200232@1)D (xx0232@1)G (320003@1)A (x02220@1)A/E (002220@1)D (xx0232@1)                           
Well it was bad enough the feeling, and the first time it hit, when you 
G (320003@1)                               A (x02220@1)             A/Erealised (002220@1)your parents had let the world all go to shit 
             D (xx0232@1)         D/A (x00232@1)           D/F# (200232@1)              D (xx0232@1)
And that the values and ideals for which many had fought and died had been 
       G (320003@1)                               A (x02220@1)        A/Ekilled (002220@1)off in the committees and left to die by the wayside.
           Em (022000@1)                         G (320003@1)                     BmBut (x24432@1)it was worse when we turned to the kids on the left and got let down 
              Aagain (x02220@1)by some poor excuse for protest 
        Em (022000@1)                     G (320003@1)                            BmYeah (x24432@1)by idiot fucking hippies in 50 different factions, who are locked 
                         Ainside (x02220@1)some kind of 60's battle re-enactment 
      G (320003@1)        Em (022000@1)        G (320003@1)         A (x02220@1)           G (320003@1)  AAnd (x02220@1)I hung-up my banner in disgust and I head for the door

D (xx0232@1)           A (x02220@1)              Bm (x24432@1)            GOh (320003@1)but once we were young, and we were crass enough to care 
                Em (022000@1)          A (x02220@1)                    Em (022000@1)         ABut (x02220@1)I guess you live and learn, we won't make that mistake again, no 
       D (xx0232@1)                 A (x02220@1)           Bm (x24432@1)               GOh (320003@1)but surely just for one day, we could fight and we could win 
                  Em (022000@1)         A (x02220@1)                       Em (022000@1)         AAnd (x02220@1)if only for a little while, we could insist on the impossible

Bm (x24432@1)                                            AWell (x02220@1)we've been a good few hours drinking, so I'm going to say what everyone's thinking 
         G (320003@1)                         D (xx0232@1)              Em (022000@1)          A (x02220@1)
If we're stuck on this ship and it's sinking, then we might as well have a 
Dparade (xx0232@1)
            Bm (x24432@1)                                     ACos (x02220@1)if it's still going to hurt in the morning and a better plan's yet to get forming
     G (320003@1)                          D (xx0232@1)         Em (022000@1)        A (x02220@1)      G (320003@1) A (x02220@1)Then where's the harm spending an evening, in manning the old barricades

D (xx0232@1)                                       G (320003@1)          ASo (x02220@1)come on old friends to the streets let's be 1905 but not 1917 
         D (xx0232@1)                                                     GLet's (320003@1)be heroes, let's be martyrs, let's be radical thinkers who never have 
                  Ato (x02220@1)test drive the least of their dreams.
      Em (022000@1)                         G (320003@1)                      Bm (x24432@1) 
Let's divide up the world into the damned and safe and then ride to the 
                     Avalleys (x02220@1)like the old life brigade  
    Em (022000@1)                        G (320003@1)                         Bm (x24432@1)And straighten our backs and we won't be afraid and they'll celebrate our 
               Adeaths (x02220@1)with a national parade

D (xx0232@1)           A (x02220@1)              Bm (x24432@1)            GSo (320003@1)come on let's be young, let's be crass enough to care 
                 Em (022000@1)         A (x02220@1)                     Em (022000@1)          ALet's (x02220@1)refuse to live and learn, let's make all our mistakes again yes 
         D (xx0232@1)                  A (x02220@1)          Bm (x24432@1)             GAnd (320003@1)then darling, just for one day, we can fight and we can win 
                    Em (022000@1)      A (x02220@1)                         Em (022000@1)    AAnd (x02220@1)if only for a little while, we could insist on the impossible

D (xx0232@1)                                                      GLeave (320003@1)the mourning the to the morning, yes pain can be killed with aspirin 
            Atablets (x02220@1)and vitamin pills.
      D (xx0232@1)                                        G (320003@1)       A (x02220@1)          DBut (xx0232@1)memories of hope, and glorious defeat are a little bit harder to beat
