Cannonballs  Hey Marseilles
Tuning: Standard E A D G B e
Capo: 2nd

Intro:

C F C C

Verse:
 C                G                F               C
Let me shout its common cause for things to fall apart
       C        G                C
For radicals to ruin all that's right
C                 G                F             C
I don't mean to flout the laws of government or heart
C              G               C
I just don't want to lose your eyes

Chorus:
   F  G       C
Wait for the ocean-bottled news
 F    G      C
Fly-bys and radio balloons
F                G
We will sing of lesser traits
      C
and play them for the magistrate
    F                 G
In groups of four or eight or twelve
    C                                 G     C
Until they say "we might as well"

Verse 2:
Grocery stores and cannonballs
Line up on my list of things I'll remember when I'm old
Water towers and Mid-west plains still in the abyss
Left unseen 'til we're further up the road

Chorus:
Wait for the static stat airwaves
Land-locked ocean-side parades
We will bring our new debates
And sing them for the magistrate
In groups of four or eight or twelve
Until they say "we might as well"
Hey, hey, hey, we might as well

Bridge:
       C
These days are not fast
  Am            F
Times will not last
        C                              G
So they say, but I'm having trouble believing
C                          Am           F
Try to settle soft in the canopy we've lost
         C                                 G
As you dance and sway and kiss with Costa Ricans

C  C  Am F C Dm G  
C  C  Am F C Dm G  


       C
These days are not fast
  Am           F
Times will not last
         C           Dm               G
So they say, but I'm having trouble believing
  C                         Am          F
Try to settle soft in the canopy we've lost
         C                Dm         G                C            
You are getting all you can from my hurting, from my hurting

C Am F C Dm 

Outro:

C       
La la la la
     Am      F
La la la la la
       C           Dm         G          
La la la        La la la la la la
