Flag by the Barenaked Ladies
From the album: Gordon (1992 Sire Warner Bros.)
Haunting melody.
 
The picking pattern I use for a D chord is the following and can be use for
all the other chords with variations when considering 5 and 6 string chords:
4-3-1-3-2 picked through twice where each chord is indicated.
 
Em or Em7?  It's your call.

THE FLAG - Barenaked Ladies
 
Dm
The phone rings, it early, it's
C
seven o'clock, he says
F
sorry I woke you but I
C
just had to talk.
Dm
You know last night, remember when
C
I tried to choke you?  I didn't 
F
mean it, I was drunk, it was 
C
only a joke.
            F	         C
You should know that by now,
	     Am		     Gm
when the chequered flag comes down,
		Em add7	        Dm
no one, no one, no one has won the race.
 
Dm
The next night he's over and
C
over and under and 
F
after he's finished, she 
C
lies there and wonders just 
Dm
why does she need him, and
C
why does she stay here, and 
F
then in the darkness, she'll 
C
quietly say Dear, you've 
F		C
never really known
        Am		        Gm
that when the white flag is flown,
		  Em	           Dm
no one, no one, no one has won the war.
 
	Dm
They're complicated people leading 
C
complicated lives, and he 
F
complicates their problems by telling 
C
complicated lies
      Dm
He tells her he's sorry, she 
C
tells him it's over he 
F
tells her he's sorry she 
C
says over and over, You've
F		C
never really known
       Am		       Gm
that when the white flag is flown,
		  Em add7	        Dm
no one, no one, no one has won the war.
 
E			    A
There goes a forest and there goes a bluebird
E			         A
There goes a partridge and there goes a Go Train
E			     A
There goes an angel and there goes a steeple
E			      A
There goes a cop car and there goes an eagle
E			    A
There goes a raven and there go the ribbons
E			    A
There goes a raven and there go the ribbons
E			   A
There goes a raven and there go
 
The ribbons the ribbons the ribbons
		       E
The ribbons of the flag.
