From: tcampbel@gpu.srv.ualberta.ca (Tim Campbell)
Subject: "Political" Spirit of the West

                                  POLITICAL
                                  ---------

                              Spirit of the West
                              album:  Labour Day
       (this also appears on Go Figure, but it is a bit different)
        transcribed by Tim Campbell  tcampbel@gpu.srv.ualberta.ca


C                    Csus2
I was tired of being put right down by my
F
self for not being what you thought you had found
C              Csus2
Pulled hard in two directions by a
F
desire to learn and my old affections
C                        Csus2
When I tried to share my world with you
F
you could not seem to tolerate the
C             Csus2
people I have grown to love
F
They shrank under your scrutiny, became the ones you'd hate, why did


  CHORUS:

        C           Csus2
        everything, every little thing, every little thing with you and
        F
        me have to be so political
        C           Csus2
        Everything, every little thing, every little thing with you and
        F            F    C        ( Csus2  F   F   C   Csus2  F  C  G )*
        me had to be so political

                * (fill not played before third verse)

C                      Csus2
I was feeling a little underwhelmed about
F
hanging 'round with you and feeling over-cautious
C                                         Csus2
Every word, every little look, every little sign, every little
F
phrase put me deeper in your doghouse
C                       Csus2
You'd let me out to run across your world, I
F
ran into a wall, you told me I built it then you'd
C                   Csus2
Reel me in, ream me out, pick me up, push me
F
out again, and then repeat, why did


  CHORUS
G                                  F
Too busy tripping on my tongue, to try and stand my ground
      G                                          F
I can still see myself crying in your lap asking you

"Are you happy with the man you have found?"


  HARMONICA SOLO:

C       Csus2   F       F  (repeated 4 times)

C                         Csus2
I'm grateful for what you did for me
      F
I can see things now I never would have seen
      C                        Csus2
And today I thought about what could have been but could
F
Never be for you and me because

   CHORUS
/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\
     "Don't dwell on what has passed away
      Or what is yet to be."
                                            -L. Cohen
/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\
