Em  G   D

           D                     A/D
You have a natural tendency, to squeeze off a shot
        G/D                     D
You're good fun at parties, you wear the right masks
       Dsus4                      D
You're old, but you still like a laugh in the locker room
      Dsus2                                       D
You can't abide change, you're at home on the range
    D                         A/D
You opened the suitcase, behind the old workings
    G/D                      D
To show off the magnum, you deafened the canyon
  Dsus4             D                      Dsus2
A comfort a friend, only upstaged in the end

By the Uzi machine gun
Does the recoil remind you...
Remind you of sex
                 G                    D
Old man what the hell you gonna kill next
Em        G                   D    
Old timer who you gonna kill next

Verse 2
(repeat chord pattern)

I looked over Jordan and what did I see
Saw a U.S. Marine in a pile of debris
I swam in your pools and lay under your palm trees
I looked in the eyes of the Indian
Who lay on the Federal Building steps

And through the range finder over the hill
I saw the frontline boys popping their pills
Sick of the mess they find
On their desert stage
And the bravery of being out of range
Yeah the question is vexed

Old man what the hell you gonna kill next
Old timer who you gonna kill next

D     F/D     Em         A
G           F           A    
Bm      C      D

Verse 3

Hey bartender, over here
Two more shots and two more beers
Sir, turn up the TV sound
The war has started on the ground 
Just love those laser guided bombs
They're really great for righting wrongs
You hit the target and win the game from bars
3,000 miles away
3,000 miles away

   Em                        G                        D               
We play the game    with the bravery of being out of range
We zap and maim     with the bravery of being out of range
We strafe the train with the bravery of being out of range
We gain terrain     with the bravery of being out of range
We play the game    with the bravery of being out of range

This is not a Pink Floyd song, it is just Waters. Amused to Death is a Waters solo album. Please figure that out before you post it under Floyd tabs.

Again, not a Pink Floyd song. Please rectify, and get your facts right next time
