The fifth stop on this vacation takes us to Germany, where Chris and Hannah disobey safety
guidelines (punk), show a disregard for safe highway speeds (very punk), and see a horrifying-sounding
biblical statue (punxxx).


        G                  Em
Back in World War Two, the bombs kept dropping, 
           C                       G
this whole city was smashed to the ground.
        G                    Em
And the orders were given to destroy everything, 
        C                       G
even to bring that beautiful cathedral down.

        Am                  D
But the best bomber pilots, well, 
                            G             C
they all tried it but their aim was never true.
Am                       D
As if the work of God or divine protection, 
             G                              C
or could the men just not do what they were ordered to do.
               G                 D          C     
Could they not do what they were ordered to do.

G                            Em
Today it still stands like a giant tombstone, 
  C                       G
a monument to a time long gone.
       G                           Em
To the old lady beggars with their faces to the ground, 
     C                      G  
it's tall arch doorways are right where they belong. 

        Am                         D
And oh, Hitler, he would have been pissed I guess, 
        G                       C
but I'm glad that the good guys missed.
   Am                                 D      
No matter what you believe or how you feel about churches, 
       G                          C
let me tell you, you really wanna see this.
          G              D            G
You'll be thankful those bombs didn't hit.

        G              D                  C                   G
We went south down the river to where the Rhine and the Basel meet. 
   G                               D
We stood on that small triangle of ground 
           C                          G
where this country was founded on our own two feet.

    Am                         D
And on the way we learned that castles are a lot smaller 
       G                               C
in real life then they are in the fairy tales.
    Am                      D
But that realization didn't stop our fascination 
      G                                      C
as we explored the secret tunnels behind the safety rails.
             G          D      G
As we hopped over those safety rails...

G                     D
We headed East and we crossed the border, 
    C                         G
the border that was no longer there.
       G                              D
And although the fences and walls are long gone, 
    C                           G
the weight of their ghosts hung heavy in the air.
        Am                                         D
And the buildings all had different looks on their faces,
          G                    C
they were stern and strong and stout.
      Am                                     D
Going 80 on the Audabon will really take you places, 
       G                                  C
if you wanna learn history get outta your house.
       G                D          G
If you wanna learn, get outta your house

G                         D              C                 G
And all of the statues of Dresden looked mean and cold and angry.
G                     D               C              G
They've all got black faces that say, "You can never kill me!"
        Am           D                       G              C
And our bus drove by Slaughterhouse 5 on the way to our campground.
   Am                     D                    G                 C
We ended up sleeping in a farmer's field cause two years ago the place was shut down.
Am                        D                       G                C   
We went to the forest and camped a few nights and then we said goodbye
   Am                       D                          G              C
To all the bakeries and the nice young bees that would always give us rides.

        C          D              G
And the train, the train, took us away!
