No power without accountability
By Billy Bragg

Intro

Em      A    D  Em

Verse 1

Em             A                       
I grew up, in a company town
                        Em
And I work a' hard til' the company closed down
Em              A
They gave my job, to another man
                                Em
On half my wages in some foreign land
                        A                                       Em
And when I asked, how could that be, any good for our economy,
            A                                           Em              
I was told, nobody cared, so long as they make money when they sell their shares

Chorus 
Em                      A
Can you hear us, are you listening
Em                              A
There's no power without accountability

Verse 2

Em              A
I lost my job, my car and my house
                                                                                
Em              A
When 10,000 miles away some guy clicked on a mouse
Em                      A
He didn't know me, we never spoke
Em                      A               
He didn't ask my opinion or canvas for my vote
Em
I guess it's true, 
        A                                               
Nobody cares until those petrol bombs come spinning through the air
Em              
Gotta find a way 
                                A                       Em
to hold them to account before they find a way to snuff our voices out

Chorus


Verse 3

Em                                      A
The ballot box is no garruntee, that we achieve democracy
                                Em
Our leaders claim their victory
                        A
When only half the people've spoken
                        Em                      
We have no job security, in this global economy
Em                              A                       
Our borders closed to refugees
                        Em
But our markets forced open
Em                      A
World banks says to Mexico
                                                Em
We'll cut you off if you don't keep your taxes low

chorus

EM                        A
They have no right to wield that sword
                                Em
They take orders from the chairman of the board
Em                              A                       
IMF, WTO I hear these words used every place I go,
                                Em
Who are those people, who elected them
Em                      A                       Em
And how do I replace them with some of my friends

Chorus x2

Em, A, D, Em
