Intro:
CBbDmFC  (Play the C and Bb chords for 8 beats each, and the Dm and F 
chords for just 4 beats each)

C
  This song is for the rats
Bb 
  Who hurled themselves into the ocean
          Dm                              F
When they saw that the explosives in the cargo hold 
      C
Were just about to blow 

C
  This song is for the soil
Bb 
  That's toxic clear down to the bedrock 
       Dm                        F       
Where no thing of consequence can grow 
          C    
Drop your seeds there, let them go 

             C     Am     F    Am --> play for 4 beats each    
Let them all go 

             C    Am     F    Am*    C   
Let them all go 


C
  This song is for the people 
Bb
  Who tell their families that they're sorry 
      Dm                   F                 C
For things they can't and won't feel sorry for 

C
  And once there was a desk 
    Bb
And now it's in a storage locker somewhere 
          Dm                                 F  
And this song is for the stick pins and the cottons 
   C
I left in the top drawer 

             C      Am      F      Am
Let 'em all go 
             C      Am      F      Am* 
Let 'em all go 



Interlude:
C    Gm    F    C  --> Play each chord for 4 beats. Play 4 times


C
  I wanna sing one for the cars 
         Bb
That are right now headed silent down the highway 
         Dm                         F
And it's dark and there is nobody driving 

      C
And something has got to give 

C
  I saw you waiting by the roadside 
Bb
  You didn't know that I was watching 
Dm            F
  Now you know 
C
  Let it all go 

             C      Am      F      Am
Let 'em all go 
             C      Am      F      Am*
Let it all go



Outro:
C   Gm   F    C  --> Play each chord for 4 beats. Play 4 times.


*:
Strum the Am chord a few times and at the final strums release the index finger 
from the B string and strum. Alternate between this and the normal Am 2 or 3 
times. Listen to the song to get the hang of it
