F
if she wants to dance and drink all night
Bb
well there's no one who can stop her
Dm
she's going till the house lights come up
Bb
or her stomach spills onto the floor
F
this night is gonna end
Bb
when we're damn well ready for it to be over
Dm
worked all week long now the music is playing on
Bb
our time


C                           Bb
and we do what we do to get by
riff
and then we need a release

F Bb Dm Bb

you get mixed up with the wrong guys
you get messed up on the wrong drugs
sometimes the party takes you places
that you didn't really plan on going
when people see the track marks on her arms
she knows what they're thinking
she keeps on working for the minimum
as if a high school education gave you any other options you know

Dm                              Bb
they don't know nothin' about redemption
F                               Bb
they don't know nothin' about recovery
C                                                   Bb   riff
some people just aren't the type for a marriage and family

no mother ever dreams that her daughter's gonna grow up to be a junkie
Dm                                                               Bb
no mother ever dreams that her daughter's gonna grow up to sleep alone
F                                                               Bb

Dm                                                               Bb
no mother ever dreams that her daughter's gonna grow up to sleep alone

she's outta step with the style
she don't know where the action's happening
you know the down town club scene ain't nothin like it
used to be
you reach a point where there's not a lie in the world
that you could use to make the boys believe you still in your twenties and they
they keep getting younger don't they
baby

she's not waiting for someone to come over and ask for the privilege
she can still hear the rebel yell just as loud as it was in 1983 you know
there ain't no johnny coming home to share a bed with her and she doesn't care

no mother ever dreams that her daughter's gonna grow up to be a junkie
no mother ever dreams that her daughter's gonna grow up to sleep alone
no mother ever dreams that her daughter's gonna grow up to be a junkie
no mother ever dreams that her daughter's gonna grow up to sleep alone

no mother ever dreams that her daughter's gonna grow up to be a junkie
no mother ever dreams that her daughter's gonna grow up to sleep alone
no mother ever dreams that her daughter's gonna grow up to be a junkie

Dm                             C
and if she had to live it all over again
Bb                                            F
you know she wouldn't change anything for the world

Cm
East and West cannot agree so the
Cm                                       Ab
generals gave call "gather troops at the border"

and soldiers praying to a god to bless them with strength and courage

           Bb     Cm          Ab          Eb         Bb
And it was in his name that artillery lit the sky on fire
                Bb      Cm       Ab               Eb 
      Bb

Sirens filled the air and the ground shook with war
civilian casualties had been a cost that was predetermined
When interviewed for report victims plead in frustration
their claim that this was a war without a reason

And bureaucrats engaged in debate to try to reach a resolution
The people sing protest songs to try and stop the soldier's gun

Protest songs in response to military aggression
Protest songs try and stop the soldier's gun
The battle Raged On...

Protest songs in response to military aggression
Protest songs try and stop the soldier's gun
The battle Raged On...

         Bb                   Cm           Ab             Eb
While the broadcast like their prayers went unanswered and ignored
Bb
God like the rest of the world just watched in silence
          Bb            Cm                Ab             Eb
There was purpose to be served there were fortunes to be earned
Bb
before a peace could be called to stop the fighting

Protest songs in response to military aggression
Protest songs try and stop the soldier's gun

Protest songs in response to military aggression
Protest songs try and stop the soldier's gun.

Protest songs in response to military aggression
Protest songs try and stop the soldier's gun

Protest songs in response to military aggression
Protest songs try and stop the soldier's gun
The battle Raged On...

if i could have chosen where god would hide his heaven
i would wish for it to be in the salt and swell of the ocean
carried by the currents to all continents' shores
reaching into depths where the sun's light has never shown
mixed with algae and coral breathed in by the sharks and dolphins
sailed by tanker ships, private yachts, swam in by tourists
working it's way up through inlets, lakes, and rivers
swamps and estuaries down through limestone into the aquifer

Em
purified by the county, pumped through pipes and out faucets
Bm                     D
filled into a glass to meet the thirst of our children

Bm  A/slide/Bm  A/slide/Bm  A/slide/Bm

if i could have chosen, i would have been born a woman
my mother once told me she would have named me laura
i would would grow up to be strong and beautiful like her
one day i'd find an honest man to make my husband
we would have two children, build our home on the gulf of mexico
our family would spend hot summer days at the beach together
the sun would kiss our skin as we played in the sand and water
and we would know we loved each other without having to say it

at night we would sleep with the windows of our house left open
letting the cool ocean air sooth the sunburned shoulders of our children
