## NOTE: ~ = Walk-Down from C to Am ##


CAPO: 2nd Fret



[INTRO:] G

[VERSE 1:]
                   C                    G   D  G
Listen up and I'll tell you what you'll do 
             C    D            G
Forget about music and alcohol too 
   C                           Am             D
Forget about your baby, we got other work for you 
       G                 C               D                Em
Better drink yer glasses empty now, it's time to rise and shine 
        G        C            D                   G
There's one less cause in the world to be leaving for


[VERSE 2:]
               C        D              G
It was back in '39 when I was one year old 
               C                      D                   G
Sitting by the backyard fence and the world had turned so cold 
C                 Am             D                  G
Drink yer glasses empty now, was all that they were told 
                  A                    D               G
Drink yer glasses boys and girls, it's time to hit the sky
               A                   D              C    ~ Am
To the tune of thunder, there's no time to wonder why


[VERSE 3:]
     G                 C             G      D  G
We'd love to take life over, that is plain
             C      D             G
Forget about sorrow, forget about pain 
C                             Am            D
Watch a John Wayne movie to remind us once again
       G                 C               D               Em
Better drink yer glasses empty now, it's time to hit the line 
        G        C            D                   G
You got one less cause in the world to be leaving for 
                  A                    D               G
Drink yer glasses girls and boys, it's time to hit the sky 
               A                  D             C     ~ Am
To the tune of thunder, there's a tear in every eye


[VERSE 4:]
                        C        G     D  G
I'd like to take things one at a time 
             C      D             G
Forget about reason, forget about rhyme 
C                              Am             D
Beg, steal, or borrow you got another hill to climb 
   G                 C               D               Em
So drink yer glasses empty now, it's time to hit the road 
        G        C            D                   G
There's one less cause in the world to be leaving for 
                  A                    D               G
Drink yer glasses girls and boys, it's time to hit the sky 
               A                   D              C    ~ Am
To the tune of thunder, there's no time to wonder why


[VERSE 5:]
                       C     G     D  G
We'd like to take life over again 
             C               D            G
When time of war had passed away into the rain 
    C                             Am             D
And watch a John Wayne movie to remind us of the plains
     G                 C               D                Em
Just drink yer glasses empty now, it's time to rise and shine 
        G        C            D                   G
There's one less cause in the world to be leaving for
