BURNING SKY- The Jam

C  Am  F   C  Am  F   C  Am  F   C  Am  F
 C                  Am                   F                           F 
How are things in your little world, I hope they're going well and you 
are too
 C                    Am                  F                     F
Do you still see the same old crowd, the ones who used to meet every 
Friday?  
 C                       Am
I'm really sorry that I can't be there
      F                                F
But work comes first I'm sure you'll understand
  C                       Am
Things are really taking off for me
  F                            F                Am
Business is thriving and I'm showing a profit and
Am      F    C  Am           F       C
And in any case, it wouldn't be the same
            Am        C             Am           C
Cause we've all grown up and we've got our own lives 
         Am             C        Am     C
And the values that we had once upon a time
       Am                    F
Seem stupid now 'cause the rent must be paid
     Am                     F           Am  F  C
And some bonds severed and others made
Am                F   C         Am              F  C  
Dit dit dit dit dit do n do   dit dit dit dit dit do n do
C  Am  F   C  Am  F   C  Am  F   C  Am  F

 C                       Am             F                   F
Now I don't want you to get me wrong, ideals are fine when you are young
  C                  Am                      F              F           
Am 
And I must admit we had a laugh, but that's all it was and ever will be cos
Am        F      C   Am         F     C
Cos the burning sky keeps a burning bright
        Am          C            Am     C
And as long as it does, and it always will
            Am         C           Am     C
There's no time for dreams when commerce calls
          Am                          F
And the taxman's shouting 'cause he wants his dough
         Am                       F            Am  F  C
And the wheels of finance won't begin to slow
Am                F   C       Am                F   C
Dit dit dit dit dit do n do  dit dit dit dit dit do n do
        Am      F   C         Am  F  C            Am     F  C          
Am  F  C
Dit dit dit dit di do dit dit dit di do, dit dit dit dit di do dit dit 
dit di do
          Am                       F
And it's only us realists who are gonna come through
               Am                         F
Cause there's only one power higher than that of truth 
                Am    F C             Am   F  C   C Am F  C Am F  C Am F  
C Am F
And that's the burning sky, it's the burning sky

Oh and by the way I must tell you, before I sign off I've got a meeting 
next week
With the head of a big corporate 
I can't disclose who but I'm sure you all know him and  
And the burning sky keeps a burning bright
And it won't turn off til it's had enough
It's the greedy bastard who won't give up
And you're just a dreamer if you don't realise
And the sooner you do will be the better for you
And then we'll all be happy and we'll all be wise
And we'll all bow down to the burning sky
Dit dit dit dit dit do n do, dit dit dit dit do n do
Dit dit dit dit di do dit dit dit di do, dit dit dit dit di do dit dit 
dit di do
Then we'll all be happy and we'll all be wise
And together we will live beneath the burning sky
