Song: IF YOU TOLERATE THIS YOUR CHILDREN WILL BE NEXT
Band: MANIC STREET PREACHERS
Album: This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours (1998)

I play this song accoustically but if you wish to play it like the song hit the note instead 
of the chord (for example hit the A string for Am) and try and find the right distortion. Listen 
to the song for where to play the distorted parts, which I think is the verses and the solo, the chorus 
is chords.


[Intro]

Am  Em  F  C  G (x2) (play intro once before each verse)


[Verse 1]

Am                        Em
The future teaches you to be alone
    F                        C
The present to be afraid and cold
   F                 
So if I can shoot rabbits
C                    G        
Then I can shoot fascists



Am                     Em
Bullets for your brain today
   F                     C
But we'll forget it all again
   F
Monuments put from pen to paper
 C                      G
Turns me into a gutless wonder


[Chorus]

           Dm
And if you tolerate this
Am                         G
Then your children will be next
           Dm
And if you tolerate this
Am                         G
Then your children will be next
Will be next, will be next, will be next


[Verse 2]


Am                    Em
Gravity keeps my head down
   F             C
Or is it maybe shame
   F
At being so young
 C            G
And being so vain

Am                   Em
Holes in your head today
   F           C
But I'm a pacifist
   F
I've walked La Rambas but
 C            G
Not with real intent


[Chorus]

           Dm
And if you tolerate this
Am                         G
Then your children will be next
           Dm
And if you tolerate this
Am                         G
Then your children will be next
Will be next, will be next, will be next


[Solo]

Dm, Am, G, G (x2)

e|-------------------------------------------|
B|--------13-12------------------------------|
G|--12-14-------12---14----14----------------|
D|----------------12----15----14-----10--12--|
A|-------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------|


[Verse 3]

Dm                 Am
And on the streets tonight
           G
An old man prays
     Dm           Am
With newspaper cuttings
             G
Of his glory days


[Chorus]

           Dm
And if you tolerate this
Am                         G
Then your children will be next
           Dm
And if you tolerate this
Am                         G
Then your children will be next
Will be next, will be next, will be next


[Outro]

Dm, Am, G, G (x6)
Dm, A, G
