[Intro]
G   C G

[Verse 1]
     G              C   G     C       D       Em
On a lone and windy hilltop beneath a roof of tin
     C                  G         B7         C
In a little wallpapered bedroom I done my growin'
      C       D         Em      C       D       Em
'Twas there I dreamt my dreams, there I hung my jeans
    C        G/B        Am   Am7/G D        C G D   C G
And wandered through my puberty as all do

[Verse 2]
   G            C     G    C        D          Em
My mother was a tight knot bound up with false guilt
C                  G       B7           C
Strapped up in her fearing wall she had built
   C   D       Em        C        D     Em
An independent girl in a dark and cruel world
      C        G/B    Am     Am7/G  D           C G D   C G
She'd lost the way to say, "OK, now lay back"

[Verse 3]
   G            C    G         C       D         Em
We disagreed on most things, I shouted peace and love
    C         G            B7            C
The family of mankind, the symbol of the dove
    C    D       Em         C      D      Em
She only saw the surface of things before her face
    C     G/B       Am     Am7/G  D       C G D   C G
But I was young and argued on for hours

[Verse 4]
   G               C   G     C          D          Em
My father he liked poetry, a scholar he might have made
       C               G            B7            C
Had he not been born a poor boy barefoot and underpaid
       C          D        Em      C      D        G     C G
So the man worked with his hands   up and down the land
    C      G/B       Am           Am7/G  D        C G D   C G
His dreams forgot he thought that I must follow

[Verse 5]
         G                C  G        C      D        Em
With his Marxist worker's wisdom he'd read a thing or two
   C               G         B7                C
He once had been a Mason but he never followed through
C      D        Em          C           D       Em
Always kind and thoughtful, smelling of machine oil
       C       G/B Am    Am7/G D        C G D   C G
And he read me poetry of visio-naries

[Verse 6]
  G               C  G       C      D       Em
I flunk my way to college, a looser kind of school
C               G         B7            C
Got me borrowed play time arty, feeling cool
C       D       Em      C           D      Em
Just to live an artist, diggin' the ravin' scene
C       G/B  Am     Am7/G    D             C G D   C G
Reading Kerouac and Ginsberg well deuced

[Verse 7]
  G          C G    C       D       Em
I was not academic, Art and English lit
    C          G         B7           C
The history of mankind I liked that a bit
    C        D    Em      C       D         Em
And what was I to do, the choices they were few
  C         G/B      Am     Am7/G   D
A downright disgrace to the working classes
  C         G/B      Am     Am7/G   D
A downright disgrace to the working classes
  C         G/B      Am     Am7/G   D
A downright disgrace to the working classes
  C         G/B      Am     Am7/G   D
A downright disgrace to the working classes
