PSA (BAD DAY)

Chords by: Mark Bettis (JJY515@mgvax.ulst.ac.uk)

Notes:

Verse: The F C Bb hammer on the chords you can do the Peter buck
jangles using these chord shapes but he goes back to F from Bb before
Beginning the next F C Bb progression.

Chorus:  Use strummed chords, not Buck-esque jangles, and unlike the verse
 section, the Bb's do go jangle back to F before beginning the next F C Bb
 phrase

{Intro}:   Eb (6th fret A-shape barre) four times


  F (hammer-on)     C                     Bb
A public service announcement followed me home the other day,
  F            C     Bb
I bade it nevermind, go away.
    F                          C
The shit's so thick, you could stir it with a stick,
    Bb                             F               C             Bb
the paper wouldn't lie, wisdom got lost to mankind, we gloat and jeer with it


{Bridge}:

C(8th fret)                      Bb(6th fret)
Broadcast me a joyful noise into the times, Lord,
           C                                Bb               A(5th)       C
count your blessings, ignore the lowest fear, well you can't send us, listen,


F         C               Bb
Radio no, play the game, three words, first one short,
F          C            Bb
magazine, book, cinema, N - O - down,
F                C         Bb
many fears are gone, step down, step down,
        F          C    Bb
watch a heel crush,  ah this means war


F C Bb  (x2)


  F                 C               Bb
I saw the light, it can't be right


F C Bb


{Bridge}:

C(8th fret)                      Bb(6th fret)
Broadcast me a joyful noise into the times, Lord,
           C                                Bb               A(5th)       C
count your blessings, ignore the lowest fear, well you can't send us, listen,


{Chorus}:

            F         C           Bb
It's been a bad day, please don't take my picture,
             F       C  Bb
It's been a bad day, please
             F         C           Bb

this is pretty straight forward

the part after this last part is a touch in the background, but its just two
climbs and descents along the G string that mirrors and or is just off the
vocals by a beat or so

the other part that I have to offer is the little bit I think separates
the chorus from the third verse, or there abouts

it seems to be just a veriation of the F chord

perhaps exchange the A for a C (?)
