I posted the other version, and it isn't completely right  So this is like a
correction.  I actually found an acoustic version of this song and it sounds exactly the same.

(capo 5)
Dm   XX0231
Am   X02210
C    x32010
Em   022000
F    133211
G    320003
Gsus 320013 
Walk in a corner shop
See a shoplifting cop
See the old lady with a gun
See the hero try 2 run
Nothing's what it seems, I mean
It's not all dirty, but it's not all clean
There's children paying bills
There's monks buying thrills
There's pride for sale in magazines
There's pills for rent 2 make u clean
Marvin Gaye, there's no brother, brother
Woody Guthrie's land can't feed Mother

C              Em
Mothers weep, children sleep
Am                F
So much violence ends in silence
C                   G
It's a shame there's no one 2 blame
     Am            F
For all the pain that life brings
C         Em           Am             F
If u will just take me It might just complete me
Dm                   Gsus        G
And together we can make a stand

A waitress brings me lunch
We meet but do not touch
On TV, D.C. is selling lies
While in the corner, King's dream dies
Go 2 the counter, pay for me and my friend
A homeless man pulls out a roll, says it's on him
The mayor has no cash
He said he spent it on hookers and hash

Am C   G    Am  Am  C    G  Am
U will love me, I will love u


1.  The names of the chords only mean the finger position.
2.  Use fast downward strums on the beats.
3.  When you're switching from Dm to Am play the open 6th string for the first
downward strum; it sounds really cool.
