    ________________
   / Kashmir       /  I think this song is a sarcastic remark to our haughty
  / The New Gold  /  dominating western civilisation. "Behind the Bush" is
 / Zitilites     /  obviously a direct reference to the American president,
/_______________/  which represents haughtiness at its best.


Since there are both fills and chords in this song, I find this the easiest way
to notate it. When a chord is notated in the middle of the bar, it simply means
that it's regularly strummed. If there's a fill, all the details are notated.

 Time: 6/8
 Key: Bb major
 Tuning: Full Step Down (D G C F A D)
 Capo: None

 2nd Verse:
This verse is completely similar to the 1st Verse, except for two things:

*The fill in bars of Dm/A         *The fill in the bar of D/A is replaced with
 and F7 is a bit different:        this D7/A chord, which is just strummed.

   Dm/A          F7                  D7/A

 2nd Chorus:
In this chorus the eight chords in the first line are played twice.
The second line is now a bit longer:

 LYRICS
**********
We're all prosperous and proud to be
With our holiday photos and our tickets for speed
Kitchens installed for a family
And once in a while for making love

Look at her eyes, they're so eager and dead
As she dances for you, more than ready for bed
But it's alright on a Tuesday night
To drink up and hit it at five

It's the new gold in fact
It will keep us all intact
As long as our eyes are all closed
To the coals that we just fled
You can relax
'Cause we're safe behind
Behind the Bush

We're in love we're all occupied
With our 200 lovers in a fast moving line
It's a need you cannot deny
It's something to straighten your spine

Now we know the grim reaper's on our side
We can turn to the papers and watch for the fight
Man, it's warm let's just sleep outside
And see how the sky reflects our fire

It's the new gold in fact
It will keep us all intact
As long as our eyes are all closed
To the coals that we just fled

It's the new gold in fact
It will keep us all intact
As long as our eyes are all closed
To the coals that we just fled
You can relax
'Cause it's far away
We're safe behind
Behind the Bush
