On Armistice Day
The Philharmonic will play
But the songs that we sing
Will be sad
Shufflin    brown tunes
Hanging around, ahoo M-m-m-m-m-m-m

No long drawn blown out excuses were made
When I needed a friend she was there
Just like an easy chair
Oo, Oo-o M-m-m-m-m-m-m

Armistice Day
Armistice Day
That's all I really wanted to say

 Oh I'm weary from waiting
 In Washington D.C.
 I'm coming to see my Congressman
 But he's avoiding me
 I've bout waited all I can

 Weary from waiting down in Washington D.C.
 Oh Congresswoman
 Won't you tell that Congressman
 I've waited such a long time
 I've about waited all I can

Woah! Awesome! my only correction would be in the first bit (and each time it repeats) the G note on the 12th fret of the 3rd string, above the word "Philharmonic" sounds better to me as an F# at the 11th fret.

I want to post or [tab]
