@Song: Divide and Conquer
Written by Bob Mould
Recorded by Husker Du on album "Flip Your Wig" (SST)
File format: tab
Transcribed by Gary Von Colln

This song is based on three chords: D - A - G.  The main riff is based
on these chords and the chords themselves are played while Bob Mould
sings.  When I play I use the open forms of these chords; I'm not sure
what form Bob Mould uses (the fuzz makes it hard to tell).

Words

D               A       G
They divided up all the land
We've got states and cities
Cities have their neighborhoods
And more subdivisions

There's lots of area codes
And nine digit zip codes
Secret decoder ring codes
Arteries, shopping nodes

There's countries divided by walls
Oceans and latitudes
And longitudes longing to find out
What there missing

We'll invent some new computers
Link up the global village
Get API, UPI, Reuters
To tell everybody the news, news

We'll be one happy neighborhood
Spread out across the world
But who's gonna stop that burglar from breaking into my house
When he lives that far away

We'll be just like old friends
No means to your ends
The police state is too busy
And the neighborhood's getting out of hand

Big Brother on every wall
Muzak plays in all the halls
Empires see the rise and fall
They divide and conquer

It's not about my politics
Something happened way to quick
A bunch of me who played it slick
They divide and conquer

It's all here before your eyes
Safety is a big disguise
That hides among the other lies
They divide and conquer

Well I expect I won't be heard
Cause my silence is assured
Never a discouraging word
They divide and conquer
