INTRO (and verse riff) in 5/4, like this: G G G C C/D  G G G C C/D

G                  C   C/D G
 Lives in a little lonely  town
C  C/D    G        C    C/D     G         C C/D
No one's around, except for the drinking
G            C    C/D G
 Nobody ever gets a - round
    C     C/D G         C   C/D  G        C (rhythm change)
But those who leave the township sinking

        ( C )     Bm  D7M    Am7    D
BRIDGE: May you rot     in heaven
               Bm D7M     Am7   D
        Got to be home by seven

                G     D/F#   Em
CHORUS: And the field burns away
            C   G/B         Am
        The sky breathes it in
           D           G
        So why sit and wait
            C       G     D      G    C C/D (back to verse rhythm )
        For the new world   to begin?

I'm coming out across your borders

With new orders for you to take

I'd really like to take out your daughter

Down by the water, down by the lake

BRIDGE: When the cold water's on her skin

        I can feel how long it's been

CHORUS: And the neighbors will all be there

        And no one will know what to wear

        So why sit and wait

        For the new world to begin?

INSTRUMENTAL: follows chords of next verse

I got a lot I got to do

Just to get through the end of the day
A               D D/E A
 It hardly ever e-ven happens
    D D/E   D                 C(9)
But I go to sleep the same anyway


CHORUS: And you can't believe in yourself
        You can't believe in anyone else
        So why sit and wait
        For the new world to begin?

OUTRO: Verse chords, end on G
