                          BARENAKED LADIES - The Flag
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Intro:
Dm    Am/D   Em/D   x4

Verse:
    Dm                            G
The phone rings, it's early, it's seven o'clock,
         F                        C
He says, "Sorry I woke you, but I just had to talk.
         Dm                         G
You know last night, remember, when I tried to choke you?
         F                            C
I didn't mean it, I was drunk, it was only a joke."

Prechorus:
           Dm   Dm/C    G
You should know that by now,
         F         C          Dm
When the chequered flag comes down,
A#              A
No one, no one, no one has won the race. 

Intro

Verse:
    Dm                       G
The next night he's over and over and under
    F                       C
And after he's finished she lies there and wonders
     Dm                         G
Just why does she need him, and why does she stay here,
    F                            C
And then in the darkness, she'll quietly say, "Dear,

Prechorus:
       Dm    Dm/C   G
You've never really known.
     F          C            Dm
That when the white flag is flown,
A#              A                    Dm
No one, no one, no one has won the war." 

Verse:
        Dm                         G
They're complicated people leading complicated lives,
       F                                     C
And he complicates their problems by telling complicated lies.
   Dm                        G
He tells her he's sorry. She tells him, "It's over."
   F                         C
He tells her he's sorry. She says, over and over, 

Prechorus:
        Dm    Dm/C   G
"You've never really known,
     F          C            Dm
That when the white flag is flown,
A#              A                   Dm
No one, no one, no one has won the war." 

Outro:  
Emaj7                     Aadd9
There goes a forest and there goes a bluebird
Emaj7                        Aadd9
There goes a partridge and there goes a Go Train
Emaj7                     Aadd9
There goes an angel and there goes a steeple
Emaj7                      Aadd9
There goes a cop car and there goes an eagle
Emaj7                    Aadd9
There goes a raven and there go the ribbons
Emaj7                    Aadd9
There goes a raven and there go the ribbons
Emaj7                    Aadd9
There goes a raven and there go
Amaj7/C#
The ribbons, the ribbons, the ribbons, the ribbons
         Emaj7   Aadd9
of the flag.

The only suggestion I'd make is C#m instead of Amaj7/C# on the last but one line. The chord you have just doesn't sound quite right to me.

Mind you, my ears aren't as young as they were ;)

Other than that it's the perfect way to play what is easily the most underrated song BNL ever recorded.
