THE MEEK SHALL INHERIT NOTHING

By Frank Zappa

Album: You Are What You Is

F                       Eb
Some take the bible for what it's worth
        Bb maj7                              F
When it says that the meek shall inherit the earth
        F
Well, I heard that some sheik
           Eb
Bought New Jersey last week
    Bb  A   G   F     F   D   G   F*
And you suckers ain't gettin' nothing!

((((This line is all single note in the bass except the F at the F.))))

Is Hare Rama really wrong
If you wander around with a napkin on
With a bell on a stick
An' your hair is all gone...
(The geek shall inherit nothin')

A^Bb
     You say your life's a bum deal
A^Bb
     And you're up against the wall
F
Well, people, you ain't even got no kind of deal at all
A^Bb
     'Cause what they do
A^Bb
     In Washington
     G                  C
They just takes care of number one
    Bb maj7          C
And number one ain't you
Bb maj7        C
You ain't even number two!


Those Jesus freaks, well they're friendly but
The shit they believe has got their minds all shut
An' they don't even care
When the church takes a cut
Ain't it bleak when you got so much nothin'

So whaddya do?

         F
Eat that pork, eat that ham
               Eb
Laugh till you choke on Billy Graham
       Bb maj7                                   C
Moses, Aaron and Abraham, they're all a waste of time
    Gm                   C
And it's your ass that's on the line
 Gm                   C
(It's your ass that's on the line)

F                  Eb
Do what you wanna, do what you will
     Bbmaj7                        F
Just don't mess up your neighbor's thrill
             F
And when you pay the bill
       Eb
Kindly leave a little tip
             Bbmaj7                          F
And help the next poor sucker on his one way trip

F             Bb   Am7  Gm   F
Some take the bi - ble  oh,  oh

(Awww, give me half a dozen for the hotel room)

Great job of transcribing the chord progression along with the lyrics, but shouldn't this be listed as crd and not TAB? You may also suggest (to the suggestable listener) that inclusion of some tasty slide work is alreety alrighty! Thanks!
