Tear Jerk

	  		Intro - F 

C 
The city children, they know how to breed 
They've touched some love, but they believe in need 
            F                                                   C 
I said to myself, I said, "I... I jerk those tears I don't cry." 
C 
The downtown bigots, they want to be friends 
I filled their cup up until they said when 
            F                                                   C 
I said to myself, I said, "I... I jerk those tears I don't cry." 

  G               F 
I feel a fever, a generation 
  C                  Em 
I am just human, Iā??m information 
     F          G 
It's true, it's true 

          C 
You gonna die, die, die, and do that tear jerk 
And cry, cry, cry, and do that tear jerk 
F                                        C 
Why? Why? Why? And do that tear jerk, too 
F                   G                        C 
I do that tear jerk, I do that tear jerk for you 

C 
The progress mongers, the southpaws of smoke 
Full-formed veneers for us average folks 
            F                                                   C 
I said to myself, I said, "I... I jerk those tears I donā??t cry." 
C 
And after us, the engines will search 
For fashion youth, the signs and wonders in shirts 
            F                                                   C 
I said to myself I said, "I... I jerk those tears I don't cry." 

  G               F 
I feel a fever, a generation 
  C                  Em 
I am just human, Iā??m information 
     F          G 
It's true, it's true 

          C 
You gonna die, die, die, and do that tear jerk 
And cry, cry, cry, and do that tear jerk 
    F                                 C 
And I, I, I, I do that tear jerk, its true 
          C 
You gonna die, die, die, and do that tear jerk 
And cry, cry, cry, and do that tear jerk 
F                                        C 
Why? Why? Why? And do that tear jerk, too 
F                   G                        C 
I do that tear jerk, I do that tear jerk for you 

(This part is mostly drums, so I like to just do one stab at the beginning of each line  
and maybe do a light tapping on the guitar so that it's not completely a capella. I'll  
provide the chords I do the stabs of.) 

C 
I stole these rhythms from the man who had them, and uh 
F 
He wiped his chin down with Uncle Tom's napkin, and uh 
C 
He said you choose this day whom you will serve, and uh 
F 
Take bits of grace, not just the things you will deserve, and uh 
Am 
"Well, Jesus Christ," I said "you're changing your mind.", and uh 
C 
You're turning water back from that wine 
             F (resume playing normally) 
It's the day the Lord has made and the year of rabbits, too 
                G 
I got my calendar mind and it's set on you 

          C 
I'm gonna die, die, die, and do that tear jerk 
Why? Why? Why? And do that tear jerk 
    F                                  C 
And I, I, I, I do that tear jerk, its true 
          C 
You gonna die, die, die, and do that tear jerk 
Why? Why? Why? And do that tear jerk 
    F                                    C 
And I, I, I, and do that tear jerk, it's true 
F                   G                        C 
I do that tear jerk, I do that tear jerk for you 
F                   G                        C (let ring) 
I do that tear jerk, I do that tear jerk for you
