                         Protection Racket - Fionn Regan
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Jacob Norris [FionnFan]
Email: spotsandstripes@hotmail.co.uk

The chords on their own sound good on an acoustic. I heard a version on Pat Kenny's 
show when Fionn played this and another new track. The strumming is easy to work out if you 
to him play it.

Tuning: standard EADGBe

Be quiet katie there is someone at the hatch

You curse the darkness and I'll strike a match
  Bm        G       Bm                        G
Undoing the latch I tripped on the scales and fell
Am                        Cm
Just as someone hit the reception bell

                           *SAME AS ABOVE*
The ghost of that injury still remains my ankle starts to swell just before it rains
leaders of nations, wild alsations, crumbling foundations, I've lost my patience

     Am          C       Am            C
These big companies are giving us the squeeze
D
Lets raise our glasses to mr. onassis

G  D        C
Protection racket (hand over the packet)
G    D         C
Rome needs cement (in this event)
    G          D    C
Go over to the till katie (the national)
G        D       C
Pay this man his rent
      Em       D
It's a standard procedure

I forgot to mention that grandmas pension
      D       C
Will ease the rent book tension

A little birdie told me you've been syphoning the poor box
I heard the knitting circle disscusing chubb locks
Whats all the commotion? what do they expect?
With no sign of a promotion I've lost my self respect
You see I built this heap from scratch when I was poor
now they're asking me to hoover the floor
Splash some water over me slap round the face
Did I miss a meeting I don't recognise the place

The plug in the socket burns a hole in the pocket

These big companies are giving us the squeeze
Lets raise our glasses to mr. onassis

Protection racket (hand over the packet)
Rome needs cement (in this event)
Go over to the till katie (the national)
Pay this man his rent

it's a standard procedure
