"sun green" by neil young, as performed live at the hammersmith Apollo, London, England, 5/18/03

Intro: D F C D (Do this 6 times)
A                          D
sun green started makin' waves
        D               A
on the day her grandpa died
A                        D
speakin' out against anything
    D                  A
unjust or packed with lies
A                          D
she chained herself to a statue of an eagle
         D           A  
in the lobby of powerco
 A                             D
and started yellin' through a megaphone
D                                   A
"there's corruption on the highest floor"
A                      D                    
suits poured out of elevators    "they're all dirty"
D                     A
phoneheads began to speak    "you can't trust anybody"          
A                      D   
but security couldn't get her down
          D                   A
she was welded to the eagle's beak
F (Slide) G (do this twice)

A                            D
sun green leaned into that megaphone
             D            A
and said, "truth is all i seek"
A                            D
security brought in some blowtorches
D                            A
news cameras recorded the speech
A                                 D
"when the city is plunged into darkness
D                           A
by an unpredicted rolling blackout
A                                  D
the white house always blames the governor, 
D                                   A  
sayin', 'the solution is to vote him out'"
A                             D
on top of that great bronze eagle
D                          A
sun's voice was loud and clear
            A                            D
she said, "powerco is workin' with the white house
      D                     A
to paralyze our state with fear"
A                 D
it was a golden moment
D                      A
in the history of tv news
A               D 
no one could explain it
D                     A
it just got great reviews
D D A 
           
"hey mr. clean, you're dirty now too
D D A
                   
hey mr. clean, you're dirty now too
D D A

hey mr. clean, you're dirty now too


hey mr. clean, you're dirty now too"
A D D
A                     D   D
the imitators were playin'
A                  D   D
down at john lee's bar
A                               D D
when sun went down to see 'em
A                           D D                        
someone followed her in a car
A                           D  D
so now when she goes dancin'
A                          D D
she has to watch her back
A                         
the FBI just trashed her room
                            D D   
one of them kicked her cat  
A                              D
the damn thing scratched his leg
D                        A 
and he had to shoot it dead
A                         D
and leave it lyin' in a puddle of blood
D                          A
at the foot of sun green's bed
D D A

"hey mr. clean, you're dirty now too
D D A
hey mr. clean, you're dirty now too
D D A
hey mr. clean, you're dirty now too
D D A
hey mr. clean, you're dirty now too"
   D   F G (Do this Four Times)
A                      D D
john lee's was rockin'
A                           D D
the imitators drove it home
A                            D D 
sun was dancin' up a heatwave
A                              D D
for a while she was all alone...
A                              D D
when up walked a tall stranger
A                             D D
he shadowed her move to move
A                 D D
in perfect unison
A                    D D
a supernatural groove
A                   D
he took her by the hand
D                      A
and the room began to spin
A                       D
he said, "i'm earth... earth brown
D                      A
you know the shape i'm in 
A                          D
i'm leavin' tonight for alaska
D                               A
and i want you to come in the spring
A                          D 
and be a goddess in the planet wars
D                          A
tryin' to save the livin' things"
A                       D
"i'm ready to go right now,"
D                       A
sun green told earth brown
A                      D
"let's go back to my place,
D                              A
pick up my cat and leave this town behind"
D D A
hey mr. clean, you're dirty now too
D D A
hey mr. clean, you're dirty now too
D D A
hey mr. clean, you're dirty now too
D D A
hey mr. clean, you're dirty now too
A  D  D  A   (Do this four timeS)
A                         D
next day sun green got busted for pot
D                         A
and it made the headline news
A                     D         
but then the charges all got dropped 
D                    A
and the story got confused
A                               D
she'd still like to meet julia butterfly
D                   A
and see what remedy brings
A                         D 
and be a goddess in the planet wars
D                         A
tryin' to save the livin' things
A                     D  
but that might not be easy
D              A
livin' on the run
A                        D
mother earth has many enemies
D                        A
there's much work to be done
D D A

"hey mr. clean, you're dirty now too"
