Cool song! Cheers.

Intro

C/Em/D/Bm


Verse

C                    Em
Living on them pills lying in squalor,
D                      Bm
That's the life of the late night bar crawler
C                      Em
Most outrageous man I met he once said,
D                                              Bm
"I could take a belly full of lead and wouldn't wind up dead."
C                           Em
He wants his song to make you shiver a little
D                    Bm
like there's a ghost coming your way
C                             Em
Have you ever been told that something's forever,
D
and had your heart broken the very next day.


Chorus

Bm                G
Shout it from the rooftop
Bm                        G
You can shout it from the rooftop
C                            D
But you can't tell it to the paper, they've already been paid

G/Am/C/Em


Verse

To be ten different people that's easy, it's easier than being yourself
I'm the one off pretender I'm not happy, picking life off the shelf
He taught me, time wasted, is time spent well
The a mans dead if he doesn't have a story to tell
Dead if he's lying in a dirty jail cell


Chorus

Coz when your down they'll kick you, the jury doesn't matter at all
The jury doesn't matter at all
Tell me officer when your baton kissed me, did it make you feel tall?

G/Am/C/Em


Solo

C/Em/D/Bm repeat


C          Em                  D
And no one asked you where you come from,
       Bm
No one told you of these times,
C          Em                  D
And no one asked you where you come from,
       Bm
No one told you of these times,


Verse

This is your life don't waste it,
Why don't you run away?
A man to reckon with he knows how to persuade,
Says you won't get a sun tan in this government shade,
Does it make you quiver a little, the way they say,
"We're gonna fuck you , take a little bit of freedom away every day.


Chorus

You can shout it from the rooftops
You can shout it from the rooftops
You can shout it from the rooftops
But you can't tell it to the paper, they've already been paid.

G/Am/C/Em Repeat till end.

End on Em.
