Lindisfarne - 1983



[INTRO:] Am    F    Am    F

[VERSE 1:]
Am
Talk about the last war, the past war, the one before 
  D7
I wanna salute the troops and what is more
    Am
I'd like to toast a drink to the stink of the semaphore
  E7                                            Am    F    Am    F
I wanna parade on the graves of the gone before


[VERSE 2:]
Am
We were all together then, officers and gentlemen
D7
Prisoners and pressmen, hound dogs and yellow men
Am
Three million dead or more, what a score
     E7
With god on your side, you'll never lose another war


[CHORUS:]
             Am                     F
But don't despair, there's more to come
            Am                   D7
Make your repairs, re-skin your drum
         C                   F7
And I'll guarantee World War Three
            E7                       Am      F    Am    F
Will be the biggest show you've ever seen


[VERSE 3:]
    Am
The Russians are coming, I can feel it in my piss
       D7
Better get out your gun, set your sights and don't miss
       Am
Better break out a bottle, make a toast to the past
      E7 
If it don't taste like vodka, you'd better make it last


[CHORUS:]
             Am                    F
But don't despair, there's more to come
            Am                  D7
Make your repairs, re-skin your drum
         C                   F7
And I'll guarantee World War Three
            E7                       Am 
Will be the biggest show you've ever seen


[INSTRUMENTAL:] Am    F    Am    F    Am    F    Am    F  E7


[CHORUS:]
             Am                    F
But don't despair, there's more to come
            Am                  D7
Make your repairs, re-skin your drum
         C                   F7
And I'll guarantee World War Three
            E7                       Am 
Will be the biggest show you've ever seen


[BRIDGE:] Am

What's this I see? There's still foliage on the tree
Someone said 'Hello', it was surely meant for me
"Hello", I replied, feeling strange inside
                                       N.C.
He took me by the hand and he whispered an aside
        C                              F
"It's alright, don't let it worry your head
       D7              F7       E7 N.C.    (Am)
War is over now, but unfortunately you are dead"


[INTERLUDE:] Am    F    Am    F  E7


[CHORUS:]
             Am                    F
But don't despair, there's more to come
                   Am                  D7
Go on, make your repairs, re-skin your drum
         C                   F7
And I'll guarantee World War Three
            E7                       Am
Will be the biggest show you've ever seen



[OUTRO:] Am    F    Am    F    Am    F    Am    F7    Am
