The Nightwatchman - Maximum Firepower


My first "tab" this one, but it's such a great song and nobody posted the chords for it 
here you go. The bridge after each chorus is a bit off, but feel free to give me a 
one at hhanasand@gmail.com and I'll do some changes. Enjoy.

Am
This one's for the shoeshine boy
And the farmer in debt
Am
Each string is barbed wire
Each chord is a threat
G
This blues guy I met
That never had a hit
Am
Said you don't gotta be loud, son
To be heavy as shit
Am
Well I'm the triggerman, baby
And tonight I'll prove
Am
That this machine here
Well it kills fascists too
G
And don't be surprised
If the sermon on the mount
Am
Next time is delivered
In a little coffee house
Dm
Cause somebody here's
Gotta let them know
Am
I doubt it's me
But here I go
Dm
I hit the button
Tape started to roll
Am
The song's got fire
G
But it's got no soul


C	            Am	           G
There's a lonely stretch of blacktop
G	                Am
Between here and home
C                   G	Am
Drop down into the valley
G		Am
Piano playin' in the living room
F		    Am
And when you see the white barn
G		          Am
You'll know the journey's through
C	           G	     Am
My dog's barking in the backseat
G	              Am
Cause he knows it too

Dm - C - G

Am
You'll need a fake passport
And fix your disguise
Am
And don't fire, sugar
Til you see the whites of their eyes
G
I turned the other cheek
But now I'm through
Am
The skin you're in
Makes choices for you
Dm
I was checking off names
And I came late to dinner
Am
Seems the slices of pie
Keep getting thinner and thinner
G
Brothers and sisters
Rejoice and repent
Am
The landlord's dead
You can keep the rent
Dm
You got twelve fine friends
But one of 'em's rotten
Am
There's a hole out back
Ain't got no bottom
Dm
Forty days in the wilderness
Forty sleepless nights
Am
I'm confused, half blind
G
And sure I'm right


C	            Am	           G
There's a lonely stretch of blacktop
G	                Am
Between here and home
C                   G	Am
Drop down into the valley
G		Am
Piano playin' in the living room
F		    Am
And when you see the white barn
G		          Am
You'll know the journey's through
C	           G	     Am
My dog's barking in the backseat
G	              Am
Cause he knows it too

Dm - C - G

Dm
Officer please
I won't be long
Am
Called the radio station
Requested this song
Dm
I had my doubts
About what I knew
Am
So I turned it up
G
Then it sounded true
Am
Kiss the ring
If the Queen will let you
Am
But come over the fence
And the dogs will get you
G
On a rope hung the traitor
On a hook hung the meat
Am
You and me are missing persons
	C	       G
Til we're counted in the streets
Am
So seize the time
And storm the tower
G
And come correct
Maximum Firepower (continued)

Am (??)
With Maximum Firepower
For the sins of the fathers
The son he must pay

Am
The Nightwatchman giveth
	C       G
And he taketh away
Dm
Thought hard about this next line
Pretty sure it's true
Am
If you take a step towards freedom
It'll take two steps towards you
Dm
So mister I ain't scared
And mister I ain't worried
Am			G
Cause on that lonely stretch of blacktop
I sit as judge and jury


C	            Am	           G
There's a lonely stretch of blacktop
G	                Am
Between here and home
C                   G	Am
Drop down into the valley
G		Am
Piano playin' in the living room
F		    Am
And when you see the white barn
G		          Am
You'll know the journey's through
C	           G	     Am
My dog's barking in the backseat
G	              Am
Cause he knows it too

Dm - C - G

Am
The clock strikes the hour
Tonight we ride
The clock strikes the hour
Tonight we ride
The clock strikes the hour
Tonight we ride
G
You've got three more seconds
	  Am
To choose sides

Damn, I've spotted several critical errors in my tabbing so there will be an update a.s.a.p...

I shouldn't try tabbing for the first time at 4 in the morning... :)

I'm looking forward to seeing the revised tab! Here's a youtube video of him playing it if it helps: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EaijfS5h73o

My first tab was House Gone Up In Flames. Gotta love The Nightwatchmen.

I've basically figured out the whole song except for the breakdown (1:40 - 1:46 in the youtube video). Can you figure that part out?

I want to post or [tab]
