INTRO: 
 
**D   **   
(repeat as necessary) 
 
                  G                Em7 
We were watching TV,     Watching TV 
                  G                Em7 
We were watching TV,     Watching TV    
 
Cadd9     A7 
Cadd9     A7 
Cadd9     C/B     A7      D 
 
                 G                     Em7 
In Tiananmen Square,     Lost my baby there 
           G                                   Em7     
My yellow rose,          In her bloodstained clothes 
          Cadd9        A7                      
She was a short order pastry chef 
     Cadd9                    A7 
In a Dim Sum dive on the Yangtze tideway 
        Cadd9        G/B 
She had shiny hair 
           A7                      D 
She was the daughter of an engineer 
                 G                      Em7 
Won't you shed a tear,   For my yellow rose 
            G                                Em7  
My yellow rose,          In her bloodstained clothes 
        Cadd9                    A7       
She had perfect breasts, She had high hopes 
        Cadd9                    A7 
She had almond eyes,     She had yellow thighs 
          C      C/B   A7      D   
She was a student of philosophy 
                      G   G/F#    Em7 
Won't you grieve with me, for my yellow rose,       
            G    G/F#   Em7                     D 
Shed a tear,             For her bloodstained clothes 
        G        G/F#            Em7 
She had shiny hair,      She had perfect breasts 
       Cadd9       C/B          A7          D 
She had high hopes,      She had almond eyes 
        G           G/F# 
She had yellow thighs 
            Em7                    D 
She was the daughter of an engineer 
                G                          C 
So get out your pistols, Get out your stones 
               G                           C 
Get out your knives,     Cut them to the bone 
             G        G/F#       Em7 
They are the lackeys of the grocer's machine 
               G                 C    
They built the dark satanic mills 
         G                    C 
That manufacture hell on earth 
                G        G/F#        Em7  
They bought the front row seats on Calvary 
         C                D 
They are irrelevant to me 
 
     **D              **Ddim5     
And I grieve for my sister 
 
People of China 
Do not forget do not forget 
The children who died for you 
Long live the Republic 
Did we do anything after this 
I've a feeling we did 
     
                  G                Em7 
We were watching TV,     Watching TV 
                  G                Em7 
We were watching TV,     Watching TV 
           Cadd9                      A7                     
She wore a white bandanna that said 'Freedom now' 
               Cadd9 
She thought the Great Wall of China 
        A7 
Would come tumbling down 
G               G/F# 
She was a student 
     Em7               D 
Her father was an engineer 
                  G                     Em7       
Won't you shed a tear,   For my yellow rose 
            G                                  Em7 
My yellow rose,          In her bloodstained clothes 
    Cadd9               A7 
Her grandpa fought old Chiang Kai-shek 
    Cadd9               A7 
That no-good low-down dirty rat 
    C                 C/B 
Who used to order his troops 
    A7                   D 
To fire on the women and children 
 
Imagine that imagine that 
  G                    Em7 
And in the spring of '48 
  G                       Em7 
Mao Tse-tung got quite irate 
  G               G/F#         Em7 
And he kicked that old dictator Chiang 
           D 
Out of the state of China 
  G                           Em7 
Chiang Kai-shek came down in Formosa 
G                             A7 
And they armed the island of Quemoy 
        G 
And the shells were flying across the China Sea 
         Em7                   C           C/B    A7    D 
And they turned Formosa into a shoe factory called Taiwan 
           G                   Cadd9    
And she is different from Cro-Magnon man 
      G               Cadd9 
She's different from Anne Boleyn 
       G         G/F#        Em7 
She is different from the Rosenbergs 
     D 
And from the unknown Jew 
G                        Cadd9          G         
She is different from the unknown Nicaraguan 
Cadd9          G           G/F#      
Half superstar half victim 
        Em7           Cadd9         D 
She's a victor star conceptually new 
G                             Cadd9 
And she is different from the Dodo 
G                    Cadd9  
And from the Kankanbono 
G                G/F#        Em7 
She is different from the Aztec 
     D 
And from the Cherokee 
  G               Cadd9 
She's everybody's sister 
 G                       Cadd9 
She's symbolic of our failure 
     G          G/F#       Em7      
She's the one in fifty million 
        Cadd9              D 
Who can help us to be free 
                      G 
Because she died on TV
