To Have and To Have Not by Bily Bragg
tabbed by Jake Sibel

This has got to be one of my favorite Billy Bragg songs and definately one of the easiest.

intro (played twice before every verse);
G C G Em D G 

G                     C      G
up in the morning and out to school
Em                         D         G
mother says there'll be no work next year
G                       C      G
qualifications once the golden rule
Em             D       G
are now just pieces of paper

G                   C           G  
Just because you're better than me
Em              D    G
doesn't mean i'm lazy
G                   C     G
just because you're going forwards
Em              D     G
doesnt mean i'm going backwards

(same riff for the whole song)
if you look the part, you'll get the job
in last year's trousers and your old school shoes
the truth is son, it's a buyer's market
they can't afford to pick and choose

just because you're better than me
doesn't mean i'm lazy
just because i dress like this
doesn't mean i'm a communist

the factories are closing and the army's full
i don't know what i'm going to do
but iv'e come to see that in the land of the free
there's only a future for the chosen few

just because you're better than me
doesn't mean i'm lazy
just because you're going forwards
doesn't mean i'm going backwards

at twenty-one you're on top of the scrap heap
at sixteen you were top of the class
all they tought you in school was how to be a good worker
the system has failed you, don't fail yourself

just because you're better than me
doesn't mean i'm lazy
just because you're going forwards
doesn't mean im going backwards


thats just the chords. i suggest listening to the cd and playing around with the
dynamics. alo try picking through the chords or just hitting the overdrive and playing
power chords. just have fun with it. send questions, comments, or corrections to Gsmpunk@aol.com.
