Tom Russell - Criminology



[Intro]
G

[Verse 1]
             
I had a gun pointed at my head on several occasions
G
Yeah, Nadine I was scared

Something about a black man with a machine gun 
G
Make you wish you said your prayers
         C     
It was Nigeria
                     G
The year was Nineteen Sixty-Nine
      D
I was teaching criminology
                              G
Played a little guitar on the side


[Verse 2]

In Apache Pass, Prince Rupert
G
Indian Jack puts a gun to my head

He said, "How do you like it now gentlemen? 
G
How’s your blue eyed boy, Mr Dead?"
       C      
It was Canada this time
                     G
The year was Nineteen Seventy-One
      D
I was performing at the Club Zanzibar
                                G   
In the neon world of knives and guns


[Chorus]
      Em
Oh, excuse me if I’m boring you, dear listener
                G
Accept my humble apology
               Am
You may think I’m just a folk singer, no
      D                         G
I’m a master in the art of criminology


[Verse 3]

When Picasso died, the Indians cried 
G
In a Prince George motel room

We were drunker than a thousand white men 
G
Playing lumber camp saloon
       C           
It was Canada again
                     G
The year was Nineteen Seventy-Three
           D
There were grizzly bears walking down main street
                         G   
What an amazing sight to see


[Verse 4]

Well, the devil rides a cubist horse
G
The devil he’s got angles

But god is an expressionist
G
He got the devil strangled 
        C                  
Down in purgatorian limbo in hell
                                        G
Ahh, them southern rip joints just like that
      D
God’s waiting room is full of painters and poets
                                      G   
And old black jazz saints in pork pie hats


[Chorus]
        Em
Well, excuse me if I’m boring you, dear listener
                  G
Accept my humble apology
               Am
You may think I’m some jive folk singer, no
      D                         G
I’m a master in the art of criminology


[Instrumental]
G       C   G   D   G


[Verse 5]

So, I got off a plane in Nigeria
G
It was Nineteen Sixty-Nine

Arrested by Ton Ton Macoute
G
Taking photos was a war zone crime
                C                  
They were gonna hack me up with machetes
                                    G
A US ambassador, come home, paid my bribe
                D
So, I played guitar with Victor Uwaifo
                                   G   
Taught a little criminology on the side


[Chorus]
                Em
Yeah, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it
                              G
No regrets, no surrender, no apology
         Am 
I know a little bit about a lot of things 
      D                         G
I’m a master in the art of criminology


[Chorus]
                Em
Yeah, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it
                              G
No regrets, no surrender, no apology
         Am 
I know a little bit about a lot of things 
      D                         G
I’m a master in the art of criminology
