The Great Depression

	  		

Intro: C 

Verse: 
            C 
We were the Reagan kids 
      F            G              C 
Our heroes didn't work like our daddies did 
       F              G           C 
They dazzled us with TV through sleepy lids 
              G 
We followed hulking maniacs to prozac nation 
                 F                       (G) 
"You can be anything, just get your education" 


                C 
We were good Christian kids 
              F                G           C 
We went to church on sunday mornings like mama did 
         F                  G              C 
Teenage love made us feel guilty and so we hid 
                G 
Under those overpasses on summer nights 
           F 
We'd tear each other's clothes off 
               (G) 
And get into fights 


Chorus: 
         Am      G                  F 
Then we roared right through our twenties 
          G            C 
Never bargained for a crash 
              Am           G      F 
Watched our hollow dreams get buried 
        G               C 
Under heaps of plastic trash 
         Am      G      F              G           Am 
Broken promises to children leaving idelible impressions 
F                G         C 
Welcome to the great depression 

Verse: 
              C 
We were our father's sons 
F                       G              C 
Playing war on weekend days with our plastic guns 
          F               G               C 
Catching up with who we were through the reruns 
            G 
"Eat your vitamins and say your prayers 
                 F                     (G) 
You'll become doctors, lawyers and millionairs" 

            C 
We were misguided kids 
          F        G                   C 
Tried to fuck our way through such a distorted world 
           F                G             C 
Confusing love and sex and plastic with pearls 
               G             
"Get what you can for yourself, leave the rest behind" 
          F                      (G) 
It's freedom forever 'til your card gets declined 


Chorus: 

        Am      G                  F 
Then we roared right through our twenties 
          G            C 
Never bargained for a crash 
              Am           G      F 
Watched our hollow dreams get buried 
        G               C 
Under heaps of plastic trash 
         Am      G      F              G           Am 
Broken promises to children leaving idelible impressions 
F                G         Am 
Welcome to the great depression 
F                G         C 
Welcome to the great depression 


Bridge:  
C C 
F Am 

        C  C 
Did he die for your sins? 
              
Did he leave us for dead? 
       F   Am 
If you wanted us safe why would you fuck with our heads? 
            C  C 
The factory's gone, the loans are foreclosed 
             F   Am 
But there's some places left that still remind me of home 
C C 
F  Am 
There's some places left that still remind me of home 
C C 
F  Am 
Just give me one place left that reminds me of home 


       F           G            Am 
The lifeboat is looking pretty full 
         F       G                   Am  G     F 
If you find some room reach out and give me a pull 
F                      G              Am 
The way we learned to live is fading fast 
F                   G             C 
I guess we never bargained for a crash 
F                   G             C 
I guess we never bargained for a crash 
F                   G            C 
I know we never bargained for a crash
