Back on the Chain Gang

	  D A Em7 D A Em7 (rpt over riff) 

D         A            Em7  Gmaj7  G 
I found a picture of you   oh 
D                 A           Em7  Gmaj7 G 
What hijacked my world that night 
D                  A              Em7         Gmaj7 G 
To a place in the past we've been cast out of  oh 
D  A                     Em7  Gmaj7 G  
  Now we're back in the fight 

Em                A      Em7 A 
We're back on the train hey 
Em  A                  D     A  D  A 
Aaaah, back on the chain gang 

Circumstance beyond our control oh 
The phone, the TV, and the news of the world 
Got in the house like a pigeon from hell, oh 
Threw sand our eyes and descended like flies 

Put us back on the train, yeah 
Aaaaah, back on the chain gang 

D A Em7  D A Em7 D 

BRIDGE:  
Dm    A7         Dm       A7                     Dm 
The powers that be that force us to live like we do 
 A7             Dm           A7                       Dm A7 Dm A7 
Bring me to my knees when I see what they've done to you 
Dm         A7                    Dm   A7                      Dm 
Well I'll die as I stand here today, knowing that deep in my heart 
  A7                     Dm 
They'll fall to ruin one day 
   A7             E  B  A 
For making us part----- 

E           B          F#m   A   
I found a picture of you, oh 
E                B                  F#m  A 
Those were the happiest days of my life 
E                     B               F#m  A 
Like a break in the battle was your part, oh 
E                 B                F#m   A 
In the wretched life of a lonely heart 
F#m                   B         F#m  B 
Now we're back on the train, hey 
F#m   B             E 
Aaaah, back on the chain gang 

B E B E (rpt and fade)
