------------------------...............

*from 'State of Emergency' (1988)*


Intro:

(Drums)

(n.C)
 State of emergency, state of emergency, state of emergency.
State of emergency, state of emergency, state of emergency.

Interlude:

G#m  A, G#m  B (x2)

Verse 1:

G#m              A         G#m     A
 From Brixton to Cape Town; unrest all around.
G#m                 A         G#m                A
 From Handsworth to Uitenhage; lawlessness, 'pon rampage.

Bridge 1:

G#m                                   A
 Sticks and stones, they're throwing; set ablaze the buildings.
G#m                           A
 Youthful minds are stirring; time to make a change.
G#m                              A
 Who they think they're fooling? No want no diverse doctrine,
    G#m                  A
For-ever we will strive; fighting against Apartheid.

Chorus 1:

G#m                 A
 State of emergency,
G#m                    B
 State of emergency; I never seen such urgency.
G#m                 A
 State of emergency,
G#m                    B
 State of emergency; I never seen such urgency.

Break:

G#m       A        G#m     B
 (Forever, we will strive).
G#m       A        G#m        B
 (Forever, we will strive), I never seen a thing like this before.

Bridge 2:

G#m                                   A
 Sticks and stones, they're throwing; set ablaze the buildings.
G#m                           A
 Youthful minds are stirring; time to make a change.
G#m                              A
 Who they think they're fooling? No want no diverse doctrine,
    G#m                  A
For-ever we will strive; fighting against...

Chorus 2:

G#m                 A
 State of emergency,
G#m                    B
 State of emergency; I never seen such urgency.
G#m                 A
 State of emergency,
G#m                    B
 State of emergency; I never seen such urgency.

G#m                 A
 State of emergency,
G#m                    B
 State of emergency; I never seen such urgency.
G#m                 A
 State of emergency,
G#m                    B
 State of emergency; I never seen such urgency.

Break:

G#m       A        G#m          B
 (Forever, we will strive), the whole wide world is burning.
G#m       A        G#m      B
 (Forever, we will strive), pring pring, gun shot ring.

Coda:

G#m              A          G#m    A
 From Brixton to Cape Town; unrest all around.
     G#m                   A
From Handsworth to Durban; no satisfaction.

G#m                             A
 We will strive for freedom now, we will strive for freedom now.
G#m                             A
 We will strive for freedom now, we will strive for freedom now.
