Ambling Alp

                        -you can play either the 11 or the 6 here

Verse:

             A             F#m             E
Now kid, I know I haven't been a perfect man
           A              F#m             E
And I've avoided doing things I know I can
           A                     F#m          E
But if I learned one thing, the tattoo on my arm will burn into my thumb
     A          F#m E
It would be that

        A                  F#m
You must stick up for yourself, son
 E
  Never mind what anybody else done
A                   F#m
  Stick up for yourself, son
E
  Never mind what anybody else done

              A               F#m         E
Now Old Man Schmelling was a formidable foe
            A                 F#m                    E
But Ambling Alp was, too, at least that's what I'm told
             A                      F#m
But if you learn one thing, you've learned it well
     E
In June you must give fascists hell
         A F#m              E
They'll run but they can't hide

You must stick up for yourself, son
Never mind what anybody else done
Stick up for yourself, son
Never mind what anybody else done
Stick up for yourself, son
Never mind what anybody else done

C#m                                    F#m            E
   And when those thunder clouds are crying in the skies, in the skies
C#m                              F#m              E
  And when those fireflies keep shining in your eyes, in your eyes
Bm                           F#m
  Keep your mind for the time, with your ass on the line
Bm                       F#m            E
  Keep your fleet feet sliding to the side, to the side

[[Back to A F#m E for remainder of song]]

Now, the world can be an unfair place at times
But your lows will have their complement of highs
And if anyone should cheat you, take advantage of, or beat you
Raise your head and wear your wounds with pride

You must stick up for yourself, son
Never mind what anybody else done
Stick up for yourself, son
Never mind what anybody else done
Stick up for yourself, son
Never mind what anybody else done
