F# Bm Down from above. F# Bm Down from above... I didn't put in the effort to make sure all of the chords were at the right times, so, you'll just have to listen to the song to get it. The problem is that there are many changes when there aren't any words, so, I kind of had nowhere to put the chords........The chord progressions are correct. I'm thinking that the D chord during the verses isn't right, but it's all that I could fit in. Any ideas? For the intro, on the album it might not sound exactly like a Bm, but live it's definitely a Bm. You kind of have to muffle the low E and, well, you can figure something out to make it sound okay. G Progression (for "make you run......" and "there'll always be something.... ." G (320003) to G/F# (200003) to Em7 (022030) Hope that makes sense! Zac DeCamp -- NoNoRaja@aol.com

Okay, well, I figured this out the first few days I had the album, and I just decided to write it up and post it. I only know the intro, and I don't really have much of an idea for the rest of the song.

Well, those are the chords, and for the intro, you just play them in chronological order (1-2-3-4). Listen to the song to get the rythm, I'm not gonna explain that. You don't actually hit the E and A strings(A a little, E pretty much never), but most of you can figure that out just by listening and trying to play it. Hopefully some of you can work off of this and get some more of the song....if you do, be sure to let everyone else know, especially me! Zac DeCamp--NoNoRaja@aol.com

(This is a blues song so there is a little room for improv so go right ahead) Intro: A7 to A(hammer on) A7 A He doesn't care if you're punctual D7 A no reward for an early bird. And he don't care if you're dysfunctional, E7 we've only recently heard that word. A7 A And the infamous nictotine user. D7 A I think he doesn't really care about that.

E E7 A Look at the moon that the light of the sun makes. A7 A D Look at the wind... A Woo! How it's loose and free... E E7 A Look at these tiny things botherin' me. Verse: I've been watching for seven straight hours (others, in the background) there hasn't been a damn thing on! And there hasn't been a damn thing on. And I feel like I'm losin' my powers. All my get up and go has all gone And I lied to my local panhandler Said I couldn't have the change Start off straight but I get to meander I got the aim but I don't have the range (others) woah... Chorus: Solo: (over scats) A (faba-doo-da) D (wah-wah) A E (wah-bow-bow) D7 (whoa!) (All) Well, the future looks like distant thunder. Well, because I'm never sure that I'll get paid. And I'm pissed that I'm not gettin' younger. Gettin' pretty, gettin' love, gettin' laid. And on the talk show, cat fight, playoff, well, everybody gives 'em a hand. And the radio sounds like a payoff, I just don't understand. Chorus: (All, w/ voices in the background even louder) Look at the clouds, look at the earthquakes (shhhhh...) Look at the moon that the light of the sun makes. (Dave) Hey! (All) Uh, Look at the wind... (Dave) (others) Wooo!, how it's loose and free... fa-du-da-du-da, fa-du-da-du-da (All) Look at these tiny things botherin' me. Look at these tiny things botherin' me.
The chord they use in the verse is some sort of C derivative that I can't identify. I'll call it Csus in the tab, because it's a combination of sus2 and sus4, played x33030. Don't confuse this with the Csus2 in the second chorus, played 335533. All the other chords are pretty basic. Capo 1 Intro riff (2x): E--------------0--------3---------- B-----------3-----3-----3---------- G--------0--------------4---------- D-----3---------------------------- A---------------------------------- E---------------------------------- Verse: Csus G Bell tower (at the station) Csus G is ringin' the morning out. imprisoned by Csus G the situation. Csus G Would be every bit as sour Chorus: C If I miss you half as much. F G Miss you half as much. Repeat intro riff The man at the track sent all the passengers back and said the ?treats? running ?I? wouldn't come. No locomotion just ?devotion?. I folded the map into the book on my lap and wondered if I would feel half as numb C If I miss you half as much Csus2 Em Miss you half as much D In a year or two C G we'll see this distance and this heartache through. D I never realized C G that I would need the joys and secrets of your eyes that much. (Improv solo) Bells chime in the hallway. You better believe that I be only loving you for always. 'Cause there'll never be a time C I could love you half as much. F Em Love you half as much. C G Love you half as much. End with intro riff I'm pretty sure about the chords, except I had a tough time getting that second chorus. If anybody can think of anything better I'd love to know! Email me at KPFruhead@fruhead.com

[B]And, if I don't like the [G]standard of living, [A]go [C#]move to [F#]Russia...
. . . . [C#m]. . . . [F#]. . . . [C#m]. . . .
[F#]Me an' Pete went [C#m]swimming last night, [G#m]he's my friend from [Bm7]Boy Scouts
[F#]All the fish were [C#m]floating upright, [G#m]we got scared, and [Bm7]we got out
[B]Mother says don't [G]play down where your [A]fa[E]ther [A]does his [E]job
[B]You know he's got to [G]make a living [A]or [C#]move to [F#]Russia...
(this is my [C#m]world, this is my [F#]world, don't make it [C#m]go away
[F#]is it a [C#m]crime, spending my [F#]time, dreaming of [C#m]yesterday)
[F#]Meet me in the [C#m]river valley, [G#m]you can tell me [Bm7]stories
[F#]'Bout a time be[C#m]fore pinstripe suits, [G#m]dippers, grits, and [Bm7]tories
[B](my mother sang the [G]songs her mother [A]taught [E]her [A] [E]
[B]we'd be swimming [G]off in cool cool [A]wa[E]ter [A] [E]
[Bm]and when she'd call us [G]from the yard
[Bm]running home it [G]felt like god...)
[D]. . . . [F#]. . . .
[B](this [F#m]is [B]my [F#m]world... [B]don't [F#m]take [B]it [F#m]a [F#]way)
Is your favourite [C#m]place controlled by [G#m]developing am[Bm7]bitions?
[F#]Do you think you'll [C#m]have some power [G#m]signing a pe[Bm7]tition?
[G#]Are you fine with [D#m]your surroundings? [A#m]Are they gonna [C7]crumble?
[G#]I'm living in the [D#m]river valley, [A#m]come and join me [C7]for a tumble!
([G#]high up above, see the [D#m]cars above the viaduct
[A#m]from sunrise to the last [C7]call, they push their [G#]luck
but that would be [D#m]fine
[A#m]if the world was [C7]yours, and you were [G#]mine)
Who will save the [D#m]river valley?
[G#]Who will save the [D#m]river valley?
[G#]Who will save the [D#m]river valley?
[G#]Who will save the [D#m]river valley?

Today's the Day that We Fight Back (from the 'No Mega-CD') Definitely the easiest Frusong that I've ever figured out. I'm positive that it's correct because I saw Mike play it live yesterday. There is one chord that I don't know the name of. So, we'll just call it V, for no other reason than to differentiate it from an E chord, and if anyone knows the real name, please let me and Chris know. V = 021200. Bill is almost sure that the V chord is a B7. (Mike on lead) A They started out so very slick, A with the deficit arithmetic. A Hospitals shut down real quick, A so you best be sure you don't get sick. E That's the Harris-Tory shtick. A Cutbacks start, the people snore. A Clinics had to close their doors. A If anesthetics cost too much, A just wack yourself with a 2 by 4. E You might have thought there can't be more, A But that's not all they're asking for! A They started with their common sense, A and things for teachers got real tense. A Students saw tuitions soar, A and obstacles became immense. E And no care for the consequence. A So let McDonald's teach grade three, A let Exxon run university. A TVO has got to go, A and we can't afford your local library. E Sell your bed, sleep on the floor. A But that's not all they're asking for! D Wall Street calls on A Bay Street then E Bay Street calls their A Queen's Park friends. D Turn welfare into A excrement. V That's why they bought the E government. A Education is no priority, A make your mind an employee E of their dirt-cheap workfare core. A But that's not all they're asking for! A They started with Bill 103 A 'cause there is strength in unity. A Strength to shut the people off, A and widdle down democracy. E Download, offload, 1-2-3! A By now we surely realize, A the plan is to demoralize. A Stay at home and watch the game, A and bow down to free enterprise. E Be governed by the banker's whore. A But that's not all they're asking for! D If you'd like to A escape it all, E there's a holiday to A take next fall. D A weekend in A Temagami, V chained up to a E big 'ol tree. A They want your body and mind thrown down some hole. A and they'd like to possess your soul. E It's a global ticker-tape attack. A But today's the day that we fight back! E It's a global ticker-tape attack. A But today's the day that we fight back! A Today's the day that we fight back! A Today's the day that we fight back!Back to the music page...
