INTRO: RIFF 1 -- 4x's

 

 

VERSE:

The fields of Eden • (RIFF 2)

Are full of trash • (RIFF 2)

And if we beg and we borrow and steal • (RIFF 2)

We'll never get it back • (RIFF 2)

People are hungry • (RIFF 2)

They crowd around • (RIFF 2)

And the city • (RIFF 2)

Gets bigger as the country comes begging to town • (RIFF 2)

 

 

CHORUS:

Stuck between a rock • (RIFF 1)

•(RIFF 1)

And a hard place

•(RIFF 1)

Between a rock

•(RIFF 1) ••(RIFF 2) -- 2x's

And a hard place

 

 

VERSE:

This talk of freedom

And human rights

Means bullying and private wars

And chucking all the dust into our eyes

And peasant people

Poorer than dirt

Who are caught in the crossfire

With nothing to lose but their shirts

 

 

CHORUS 2:

Stuck between a rock

And a hard place

Between a rock

And a hard place

•(RIFF 1)

You'd better stop

•(RIFF 1)

Put on a kind face

•(RIFF 1)

Between a rock

•(RIFF 1)

And a hard place

 

 

BREAK:

G

We're in the same boat

D

On the same sea

F

And we're sailing south

C

On the same breeze

G

Guiding dream churches

D

With silver spires

F

And our rogue children

C (RIFF 1) -- 6x's

Are playing loaded dice

 

 

CHORUS:

 

 

..... You'd better stop

 

 

Give me the truth now } NOTE:

Don't want no sham } THIS PART MOSTLY

I'd be hung } SUNG WITH DRUMS

Drawn and quartered for a sheep } PLAYING.

As well as a lamb }

 

 

CHORUS:
