"CIA" Ted Leo & The Pharmacists

INTRO
D     A x2 (acoustic only)
D     A x4 (all play loud)

                 D             A
Sometimes the rain upon the sea
                D                A
Can make the gray look green to me.
              D                 A
And when I'm into all that gray,
              D                    A
I'll make the morning last all day.
               F#m               A
see I've been down to New South Wales
             Bm                E  (2 3 4 1 2 3 4)
 both my brothers've been in jail,
             D                 A
Ah, but my sister - she got free
             D                  A    (2 3 4 1 2 3 4)
Now she's across the great gray sea.

D        A   x 4 (loud)

              D                     A
Now I've been hard, too hard to find,
               D                  A
But there's no paranoia in my mind.
                 D                    A
There've been no comrades dropping dimes,
             D                A
It's just I'm working overtime.
       F#m                A
And I know that in the end,
          Bm                 E  (2 3 4 1 2 3 4)
I'll come clean to all my friends.
               D                 A
'Cause we all know we all have sinned,
            D                    A  (2 3 4 1 2 3 4)
And we all know we're going to again.

         Bm               A          
And when I was late in checking in,
           D                  Bm  (2 3 4 1 2 3 4)
And I couldn't say where I'd been,
      F#m          A
Well, I bet you knew,
           F#m         A
'Cause you sometimes do,
    F#m         A         E  (2 3 4)   Em (2 3 4)  D    A   x4
And here we go 'round again...

        D                             A
See, Molly always knows just what to bring,
             D                    A
When Reb's in town, she always rings.
           D                      A
You wanna know what Tommy has to say?
          D                      A
Is Terry feeling better these days?
         F#m            A
You can ask - take a look,
          Bm              E  (2 3 4 1 2 3 4)
We're all pretty open books.
              D                      A
What I stand for, I mostly stand behind,
           D                     A   (2 3 4 1 2 3 4)
And what I am, I mostly can't hide.
            Bm                A
And when we were late in getting in,
          D                  Bm  (2 3 4 1 2 3 4)
We couldn't say where we'd been.
     F#m        A
So maybe you knew,
         F#m         A
Like you sometimes do -
         F#m     A      E      Em
I've got no need to pretend.
      Bm
Oh C.I.A.,
      D                   F#m   (2 3 4 1 2 3 4)
Only you know what you've done.    
    Bm
Oh  C.I.A.,
      D                   D       A x4    SOLO   D     A    x4
Only you know what you've done.               
             F#m           A
My father works from 6 to 8,
             Bm               E
And he ain't given up his faith,
         D                    A
And so I haven't given up myself,
         D                         A   (2 3 4 1 2 3 4)   D     A   x4 (no electric)
Though I sure could use a little help.
         D                         A
Now it don't take the writing of a song,
              D                   A
To tell you what I was doing in '01.
           D                         A
Buy what I fear that I might never see,
            D                A    (electric back)
Is where you were back in '73.
          F#m               A
And why Mal, he ain't around,
          Bm                E  (2 3 4 1 2 3 4)
Or if Everardo was ever found.
            D                              A
Or why Frankie says that history's race is run,
             D                                     A  (2 3 4 1 2 3 4)
When we all know it's just erased by those who've won.
            Bm                  A
And when I was late in weighing in,
           D                   Bm  (2 3 4 1 2 3 4)
And I couldn't say where I'd been,
          F#m             A
And, you thought you knew,
          F#m        A
Like you sometimes do,
        F#m       A      E  (2 3 4)  Em  (2 3 4)   
But you got it wrong again...
       Bm          D                    F#m  (2 3 4 1 2 3 4)
But C.I.A., Only you know what you've done
       Bm          D                    F#m  (2 3 4 1 2 3 4) 
Oh C.I.A.,  Only you know what you've done.
  Bm               D                         F#m      
Oh C.I.A.,   Ha!  Only you know what you've done.    
    Bm         D                     D            A   REPEAT(D-->A)TO FADE
C.I.A    Only you know what you've done.    Only you know what you've done (call & respond)
