VERSE 1
 
C
When the sleigh is heavy
C7
And the timber wolves are getting bold
Am
You look at you companions
              Am7.
And test the water of their friendship
          Am6
With your toe
F
They significantly edge
C      G       Am
Closer to the gold
F
Each man has his price Bob
G
And yours was pretty low
 
VERSE 2
 
C                C7
History is short the sun is just a minor star
Am
The poor man sells his kidneys
        Am7      D7
In some colonial bazaar
F
Que sera sera
             C      G    Am
Is that your new Ferrari car
F                    Am7           D7
Yes but I think I'll wait for the F50
 
CHORUS
 
G
You don't have to be a Jew
G/F
To disapprove of murder
Em7             Cmaj7
Tears burn our eyes
Am
Moslem or Christian Mullah or Pope
Em
Preacher or poet who was it wrote
Dm
Give any one species too much rope
            G
And they'll fuck it up
 
| C |
 
VERSE 3
C
And last night on TV
  C7
A Vietnam vet
 
Takes his beard and his pain
Am
And his alienation twenty years
Am7     Am6
Back to Asia again
F
Sees the monsters they made
      C         G         Am
In formaldehyde floating 'round
        F
Meets a gook on a bike
  Am7
A good little tyke
         Am6
With the same soldier's eyes
 
BRIDGE
 
| G/B | G7 | Em | C |
 
Am
What does it mean
 
This tear jerking scene
        Em
Beamed into my home
        Dm
That it moves me so much
 
Why all the fuss
     G
It's only two humans being
 
| C/E | C7 |
 
          Am         F  Am/E
It's only two humans being
      Dm      Am
Tears burn my eyes

What does it mean

This tender TV

This tear jerking scene
 
Beamed into my home
