G
See Thomas Jefferson
       C                 G
On the eve of Bunker Hill
C                     G
  Writing words to die for
        Em        D      G
Writing sentences to kill


They've come to paint his portrait
      C                 G
So he grabs a chair and sits
       Em              C
As the surgeon orders cotton
               D           G
For a thousand tourniquets


              C
For God and country
            Em
For us and them
                C
Every good idea
                              Em
Kills at least a thousand men
    C       D        G
At least a thousand men



See the able-bodied Christian
     C               G      C
In a dark and savage land
                             G
Tellin' all those who will listen
      Em       D      G
That God was once a man



Through needles eye so narrow
         C                 G
He will lead them four by four
Em                           C
  He's got nine hundred shackles
               C      D      G
He needs at least a hundred more


           C
A thousand men
           Em
A thousand men
              C
Every good idea
                               Em
Kills at least a thousand men
     C        D      G
At least a thousand men



See the able-bodied student
        C          G     C
In his laboratory coat
                 G
Whispering calculations
      Em      D            G
Like prayers stuck in his throat



Soon he will discover
            C         G
Some flawless medicine
          Em               C
But right now he needs an oven
                       D        G
That holds at least a thousand men


                C
Some are the means
              Em
Some are the ends
             C
Every good idea
                              Em
Kills at least a thousand men
     C       D       G
At least a thousand men


              D
One thousand one
              Em
One thousand one
             C
Every man I know
                               Em
Thinks that he's one thousand one


               D
Nine hundred nine
              Em
His day is done
             C
Every man I know
                               Em
Thinks that he's one thousand one
        C        D       G
I know I'm one thousand one
