                      The Great Depression - Dave Hause
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tab by: Liese13

This is a song off the latest record "Devour".
I am pretty sure about most of the chords
except for the first one in the chorus...thought
it to be either Am or F but might as well
be something entirely different. If you have
an idea or any feedback, please leave a comment :-)

tuning: standard, no capo
Chords used:
C, F, G, Am

Intro:
C (simply vary using the b string in C-formation and then on third thread, and the e-string)

Verse:
            C
We were the Reagan kids
      F            G              C
Our heroes didn't work like our daddies did
       F              G           C
They dazzled us with TV through sleepy lids
              G
We followed hulking maniacs to prozac nation
                 F                       (G)
"You can be anything, just get your education"


                C
We were good Christian kids
              F                G           C
We went to church on sunday mornings like mama did
         F                  G              C
Teenage love made us feel guilty and so we hid
                G
Under those overpasses on summer nights
           F
We'd tear each other's clothes off
               (G)
And get into fights


Chorus:
         Am      G                  F
Then we roared right through our twenties
          G            C
Never bargained for a crash
              Am           G      F
Watched our hollow dreams get buried
        G               C
Under heaps of plastic trash
         Am      G      F              G           Am
Broken promises to children leaving idelible impressions
F                G         C
Welcome to the great depression

Verse:
              C
We were our father's sons
F                       G              C
Playing war on weekend days with our plastic guns
          F               G               C
Catching up with who we were through the reruns
            G
"Eat your vitamins and say your prayers
                 F                     (G)
You'll become doctors, lawyers and millionairs"

            C
We were misguided kids
          F        G                   C
Tried to fuck our way through such a distorted world
           F                G             C
Confusing love and sex and plastic with pearls
               G            
"Get what you can for yourself, leave the rest behind"
          F                      (G)
It's freedom forever 'til your card gets declined


Chorus:

        Am      G                  F
Then we roared right through our twenties
          G            C
Never bargained for a crash
              Am           G      F
Watched our hollow dreams get buried
        G               C
Under heaps of plastic trash
         Am      G      F              G           Am
Broken promises to children leaving idelible impressions
F                G         Am
Welcome to the great depression
F                G         C
Welcome to the great depression


Bridge: 
C C
F Am

        C  C
Did he die for your sins?
             
Did he leave us for dead?
       F   Am
If you wanted us safe why would you fuck with our heads?
            C  C
The factory's gone, the loans are foreclosed
             F   Am
But there's some places left that still remind me of home
C C
F  Am
There's some places left that still remind me of home
C C
F  Am
Just give me one place left that reminds me of home


       F           G            Am
The lifeboat is looking pretty full
         F       G                   Am  G     F
If you find some room reach out and give me a pull
F                      G              Am
The way we learned to live is fading fast
F                   G             C
I guess we never bargained for a crash
F                   G             C
I guess we never bargained for a crash
F                   G            C
I know we never bargained for a crash
