Here's the theme to M*A*S*H, aka "Suicide is Painless".
"Cause suicide is painless/it brings on many changes..."

Thanks, Brian for the lyrics. Here are the chords to go along with them.
If I've made an error in the chords let me know. I saw them in Guitar
or some mag. I can't remember. Anyway, they sound pretty true. One more
thing, just a regular G will do instead of a G7, I can't tell much 
difference.


  Suicide is Painless--Theme from the movie M*A*S*H
  _________________________________________________


          Dm7           G7
  Through Early morning fog I see
  C            Am7
  Visions of the things to be
      Dm7              G7           
  The pains that are withheld for me
  C             Am          
  I realize and I can see
        Dm7        G7     
  That Suicide is Painless
  C                Am7     
  It brings on many changes
     Dm7            G7            Am
  And I can  take or leave it if I please

2)Try to find a way to make
  All our little joys relate
  Without that ever present hate
  But now I know that it's too late
  And (chorus)

3)The game of life is hard to play
  I'm going to lose it anyway
  The losing card I'll someday lay
  So this is all I have to say
  That (chorus)

4)The only way to win is cheat
  And lay it down before I'm beat
  And to another give a seat
  For that's the only painless feat
  'Cause (chorus)

5)The sword of time will pierce our skins
  It doesn't hurt when it begins
  But as it works it's way on in
  The pain grow stronger watch it grin
  For (chorus)

6)A brave man once requested me
  To answer questions that are key
  Is it to be or not to be
  And I replied "Oh why ask me."
  Cause (chorus)
  And you can do the same thing if you please

Well there you go.  If someone beat me to it, sorry to waste your time.
  Take it easy,
  Brian

SUICIDE IS PAINLESS

        Em7           A7          D              Bm
Through early morning fog I see / visions of the things to be
    Em                  Asus      A7     D           Bm7   F#m7 B7
The pains that are with-held from me / I realize and I can see  that

  Em7        A7           D              Bm7
  Suicide is Painless, it brings on many changes
      Gmaj7      D/F#    Em       A7   Bm
  And I     can take  or leave it if I please

Try to find a way to make / all our little joys relate
Without that ever-present hate / and now I know that it's too late and...

The game of life is hard to play / I'm going to lose it anyway
The losing card I'll sometimes lay / so this is all I'm going to say 
that...

The only way to win is cheat / and lay it down before I'm beat
And to another give a seat / for that's the only painless feat 'cause...

The sword of time will pierce our skins / it doesn't hurt when it begins
But as it works its way on in / the pain grows stronger -- watch it grin. 
For...

A brave man once requested me / to answer questions that are key
Is it to be or not to be / and I replied, "Oh, why ask me?" 
'cause...
  Suicide is painless, it brings on many changes
  And I can take or leave it if I please
  And you can do the same thing if you please.


Enjoy, STEVE

   Okay - here's my version of "Suicide is Painless".  The sheet music I had 
was arranged for piano - so the chords and tab are just guesses.  The music
sounds right on piano, but I haven't tested it on guitar.
