                           Thanks Bastards! - Mischief Brew
Tabbed by: StairwaytoHeavn

This is a pretty awesome song from the CD Songs Under the Sink. I'm planning
on tabbing more from the CD and maybe even making an album tab eventually,
so look out for those tabs.

    G         Em         C        G'        C'        Em'

Intro: G G Em C

Thank you Mr. Officer Great 

for all the things you said to me,
Em                                    C
for all the good that you have ever done.

Without you, what would I be?
You're the gas upon my flames, 
my love and rage all roll up into one.

G'                 C'            Em'            C'
For everytime your gun goes off, a new rebel is born.
G'                 C'              Em'          C'
So when there's 41 bullets, there's 41 thousand thorns
G'              C'                     Em'      C'
in your side, well take a ride down to Precinct 29, 
Am                       G'         Em'
and we'll sing and dance and break the code of silence.

[G G Em C]x2

(Chords same as first verse)
Thank you governor 
thank you governor
to the mayor and, the commisioner
your monster is alive now
shes taken to the streets
crashing through your opera house and tearing out the seats

(Chords same as first prechorus)
for all the times you sign your name, someone out there dies
found a wallet, not a gun and mother's wiping tears
from her eyes we despise your hollow truths and honest lies
now you can't sing the monster into slumber

Prechorus II

Thanks Bastards!          \
Em                         |

I took the goods and ran  /
I took the goods and ran X3

[G G Em C]x2

Homeland security versus civil liberty
I'm studying in the shadows of our state
I've seen the bones they tried to hide
cut-throat livings other side
The flood of US bathwater displaced

the funeral march of all the victims of your power war
rob the right to steal the night and rebels shall be born
forever more your the storm we should play after it pours
and joy is sure to come after your silence.

I just want to compliment you on the clarity between barre and open chords. I remember when I first started learning and those little things really help out.
