C G D D  /  C G D D


C  G             D     D
   Voices on the radio
C                  G        D   D
Tell us that we're going to war
      C             G        D  D
Those brave men and women in uniform
           C                 G        D   D
They wanna know what they're fighting for
 

    C              G        D       D
The generals wanna hear the endgame
    C              G         D    D
The allies won't approve the plan
        C       G      D           D
But the oil men in the White House
     C          G      D
They just don't give a damn


               D             C  G       D
   'cause it's all about the pri--ce of oil
        D             C  G       D
   It's all about the pri--ce of oil
         D                   C             G          D
   Don't gimme no shit about blood, sweat, tears, and toil
        D             C  C       G   G
   It's all about the pri--ce of oil

      C        G         D      D
Now I ain't no fan of Saddam Hussein
   C            G      D     D
Oh please don't get me wrong
        C            G    D             D
If it's freeing the Iraqi people you're after
     C           G         D    D
Then why have we waited so long


    C              G        D          D
Why didn't we sort this out last time?
            C              G     D    D
Was he less evil then than he is now?
    C            G         D      D
The stock market holds the answer
       C        G         D
To why him, why here, why now


               D             C  G       D
   'cause it's all about the pri--ce of oil
        D             C  G       D
   It's all about the pri--ce of oil
         D                   C             G          D

   C          G       D      D
Saddam killed his own people
C                 G   D    D
Just like general Pinochet
    C           G               D    D
And once upon a time both these evil men
        C             G D D
Were supported by the USA


    C           G        D     D
And whisper it, even Bin Laden
     C           G        D   D
Once drank from America's cup
C               G               D       D
Just like that election down in Florida
     C            G       D
This shit doesn't all add up


               D             C  G       D
   'cause it's all about the pri--ce of oil
        D             C  G       D
   It's all about the pri--ce of oil
         D                   C             G          D
   Don't gimme no shit about blood, sweat, tears, and toil
        D             C  C       G   G
   It's all about the pri--ce of oil
