N.C. (G bass)

N.C. (G bass)
I've got a pocket full of pretty green -

I'm going to put it in the fruit machine -

I'm going to put in the jukebox -

It's going to play all the records in the hit parade -

I've got a pocket full of pretty green -
                                                      G*
I'm going to give it to the man behind the counter -
                                        G*
He's going to give me food and water -
                                           G*
I'm going to eat that and look for more -

B5
This the pretty green - this is society -
C5
You can't do nothing - unless it's in the pocket -
     G     D
- oh no -

G                         D
I've got a pocket full of pretty green -
G                          D
I'm going to put it in the fruit machine -
G                          D
I'm going to put it in the juke box -
              G                           D
It's going to play all the records in the hit parade -

B5
This is the pretty green - this is is society -
C5
You can't do nothing - unless it's in the pocket -
     G     D
- oh no -

         E               C
And they didn't teach me that in school -
E                        C
It's something that I've learnt on my own -
     E                        A
That power is measured by the pound or the fist -
                       C5   D5
It's as clear as this     -     hey.
