       {on this song, it is often effective to raise the finger that you're
        barring the B chord with to give it a suspended feel and create an
        A note in the bass!  This song is about 90% style.  The chords alone
        don't cut it!  Oh well.....}

       Welcome To The Occupation
       =========================


       The intro goes like this:
       
       E--0--         X=Mute this string
       B--0--
       G--0--         I don't know the name of this chord
       D--2--         but i'm sure it has one.  anybody?
       A--0--
       E--X--         Anyways, the intro is this chord, then
                      a Dsus2:   E--0--
         |                       B--3--
         |                       G--2--
         |-------------->        D--0--
                                 A--0--
       
       Then the, verses go:
       
       
        Em       G      Em     Dsus2 (either strum or pick the 1,2 & 3
       Hang your collar up inside                              strings)
       Hang your dollar on me
       Listen to the water still
       Listen to the causeway run (you are?)
       
           note- When going from the Em to the G and back again,
                 walk the bass notes up (eg. A
                        and back down too    E--0--2--3--
                                                Em    G
       
       [the "Man educated" part is the 1st chord of the intro (maybe Am7)
       [again, followed by this chord, which may not be correct
       [and, again, I don't know what it's called:
       
          E--0--       It's sort of like the shape of an augmented
          B--3--       chord.
          G--4--
          D--4--
          A--5--
          E--X--
       
       
       
       Man educated primitive and wild
       Welcome to the occupation
       
        Em      G      Em          Dsus2
       Here we stand and here we fight
       All your fallen heroes
       Held and died and skinned alive
       Listen to the Congress fire
       
       



        (as above i.e. "Man educated . . .")

       Offering the educated primitive and loyal
       Welcome to the occupation
       Hang your collar up inside
       Hang your freedom higher
       Listen to the buyer still
       Listen to the Congress
       Where we propagate confusion
       Primitive and wild
       Fire on the hemisphere below
       
            - at this point, there is an instrumental break where
              you play:
       
           Fmaj7    Em    (x2) (I think)
       
             then, coming out of this and into the final verse,
             play (rather aggressively):
       
            G     D
       
       (back to this again)
       
       Em     G       Em     Dsus2
       Sugar cane and coffee cup
       Copper steel and cattle
       An annotated history the forest for the fire
       
       (same as before)

       Where we open up the floodgates
       Freedom reigns supreme
       Fire on the hemisphere below
       
                    Em  G  Em  Dsus2
       Listen to me
       
        then the "outro" tagged on the end goes:
              Em  Dsus2  Em (maybe Em7?)

        the whole verse, but Mills is doing other "stuff" on the bass. I play
        the chords Dsus2 and Dsus2/C just to make it interesting.  I probably
        should pull out McCabe's Guitar Shop and see what they did there, huh?}

       King Of Birds
       =============

       
       Intro :  D
       
       D
       A thumbnail sketch, a jeweler's stone
       A mean idea to call my own
       Old man don't lay so still you're not yet young
       There's time to teach, point to point
       Point observation, children carry reservations
                                            G
       Standing on the shoulders of giants, leaves me cold
       F#m                           A                        D
       A mean idea to call my own, a hundred million birds fly
       
       
       D
       Singer sing me a given, singer sing me a song
       Standing on the shoulders of giants everybody's looking on
                                           G
       Standing on the shoulders of giants leaves me cold
       F#m                           A                         B
       A mean idea to call my own, a hundred million birds fly away
       E         B                        E         -->  D
       away... awaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyieeeeeee
       
            (this part sung 'on top of' the  2nd line in the 2nd verse)
            There's time to teach point to point
            Point observation children carry reservations
       
       
       D
       I am king of all I see my kingdom for a voice
       Old man don't lay so still you're not yet young
       Old man don't lay so still you're not yet young
       There's time to teach, point to point
       Point observation, children carry reservations
                                            G
       Standing on the shoulders of giants, leaves me cold
       F#m                           A                     D
       A mean idea to call my own, a hundred million birds fly
