INTRO:
 
**D   **Ddim5
(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
