No Way Down

	  		 

Intro:
  
Ab C# (3x) 
F# C# 

Ab                      C# 
Meet the son of a Government man 
Ab               C# 
and a pillar of salt 
Ab                   C# 
I was born with blood on my hands and 
      F#                 C# 
have all signs of a bleeding heart 

Ab                 C# 
Living high on a giant hog 
Ab            C# 
and a mountain so steep 
Ab                     C# 
keep your head in a hollow log as 
      F#             C# 
the ruling fog are about to creep 

Ebm           Ab 
What have we done? 
C#               Ab           F# 
How'd we get so far from the sun? 
Ebm                Bbm 
Lost, lost in an oscillating phase 
         C#            Ab          F# 
where a tiny few catch all of the rays 

Ab                  C# 
Out beyond the western squalls 
Ab            C# 
In an alien land 
Ab               C# 
they work for nothing at all 
            F#                     C# 
they don't know the mall or the lay-away plan 

Ab                  C# 
Dig yourself a beautiful grave 
Ab              C# 
everything you could want 
Ab                C# 
Maybe those invisible slaves are 
     F#                   C# 
too far away for the ghost to 


Ebm                Ab 
haunt, what will we charge 
      C#              Ab       F# 
for letting go of a claim so large? 
Ebm             Bbm 
Oh, all of our working days are done 
       C#                 Ab          F# 
But a tiny few are having all of the fun 
      C#          Ab            F# 
Get used to their dust in your lungs 


Instrumental Break (play twice) 
C# F# x 3 
Ab 

         Ebm     Bbm 
Is there no way down 
           C#             Ab 
from this peak to solid ground 
   Ebm              Bbm 
without having our gold teeth 
                  Ab     F# 
pulled from our mouth? 

Ab  F# x 
C# (stop) 

Ab    C# 
Make me a drink 
Ab       C# 
strong enough 
Ab        C#                  F# 
to wash away the dishwater world 
        C# 
They said was lemonade 

Ab    C# 
Walk with me 
Ab        C# 
after the show 
Ab      C#          F# 
Maybe we can find a way 
             C# 
through the minefield in the 


Ebm              Ab 
snow, what will they charge 
      C#              Ab       F# 
for letting go of a claim so large? 
Ebm             Bbm 
Oh, all of our working days are done 
       C#                 Ab          F# 
But a tiny few are having all of the fun 
  C#              Ab            F# 
Apologies to the sick and the young 
      F#          Ab            C# 
Get used to their dust in your lungs
