Cap In Hand -- The Proclaimers
------------------------------
3/4 time - best sung with a heavy Scottish accent!

Basic strum rythym:  1 2 3
                     / /\/\

Intro:   |C    |C    |C    |C    |

 C                               F           G
   I could tell the meaning of a word like serene,
 C                            F        G
   I got some `O' grades when I was sixteen,----
 C                                  F             G
   I can tell the difference 'tween margarine and butter,
 C                                  F           G
   I can say "Saskatchawen" without starting to stutter.
         G          C            F               C          G
   But I can't understand why we let someone else  rule our land,
   NC           C
   we're cap in hand.
 C                               F          G
   I could get a broken jaw from being in a fight,
 C                          F            G
   I know it's evening when day turns to night,
 C                           F           G
   I can understand why Stranraer lie so lowly,
 C                                    F             G
   They could save a lot of points by signing Hib's goalie.
         G          C            F               C         G
   But I can't understand why we let someone else  rule our land,
   NC           C
   we're cap in hand.

 F    C     G           C
   We fight   when they ask us,
 F    C     G         C
   We boast   then we cower,
 F    C   G       C
   We beg   for a piece of
 F                                                    G
   What's already,  what's already,   what's already, ours.

|C  |C  |F  |G  |C  |C  |F  |G  |G  |C  |F  |C  |G  |G  |

 C                        F          G
   Once I thought I could make God a bribe,
 C                 F           G
   So I said I was in His lost tribe,
 C                      F         G
   Getting handouts can be so frustrating,
 C                           F            G
   "Get in line son, there's five million waiting".
                     C             F               C            G
    But I can't understand why you let someone else   rule your land
    NC            C
    You're cap in hand.
          G          C            F               C           G
    No, I can't understand why we let someone else   rule our land,
    NC           C             Am           F            D7
    We're cap in hand,  cap in hand, cap in hand, cap in hand,
          G          C            F               C           G
    No, I can't understand why we let someone else   rule our land,
    NC           C
    We're cap in hand .... (listen to the record for the way they finish it)
