Deliver your children

written and performed by Paul McCartney
from "London Town", 1978
transcribed by Peter Eybert 


(Capo 5, preferably 12-string)

Em                                                 Em/F#  G  D
Well, the rain was a-falling and the ground turned to     mud
      Em                                       D  A
I was watching all the people running from the flood
     Em                                       Em/F# G  D
So I started to prayin' though I ain't no prayin'   man
        Bm             Em              Bm         Em
for the Lord to come a helpin' knowing he'd understand.

CHORUS:
D            D/C#            Bm
Deliver your children to the good good life
G                  Bm            Em
give 'em peace and shelter and a fork and knife
        D            D/C#          Bm
shine a light in the morning and a light at night
         D     F#m  Bm                 G    Bm Em
and if a thing goes wrong you'd better make it right.

Em                                   Em/F#  G  D
Well, I had me a woman, she was good and clean
    Em                                D  A
she spent all day with the washing machine
     Em                                    G  D
but when it came to lovin' she was never around
        Bm          Em        Bm       Em
she was out getting dirty --- all over town.


CHORUS

            Am                        Am/B  C  G
Well, I was low on money and my truck broke down
      Am                        G  D
I was on my way to the lost and found
     Am                               Am/B  C  G
so I took it to a dealer, I said make it run
        Em           Am           Em  Em7  Am
well, I ain't got no money, but I got me a gun.

           Am                              Am/B C  G
I said you robbed me before so I'm robbing you  back
          Am                                                G  D
and if it don't put you straight it'll put you on the right track
        Am                         Am/B C  G
well, I ain't no devil and I ain't no   saint
    Em           Am            Em    Em7    Am
but I can tell a dealer by the color of his paint.


CHORUS

       Em                            Em/F# G  D
If you want good eggs you gotta feed that  hen
           Bm              Em
and if you wanna hear some more
           Bm         Em
well, I'll sing it again.
