[Banjo Intro]


[Intro]

A   Dm   F   C   Dm  (x4)


[Verse 1]

Dm                   F
She had excuses and she chose to use them
C                    Dm
She was the victim of unspeakable abuses
Dm                   F
Her husband was violent, malicious and distant
C                    Dm
Her kids now belong to the state of Massachusetts


[Pre-Chorus]

Dm   F   C   Dm
They've been taken away! Hey!
Dm   F   C   A
They've been taken away!


[Chorus]

Dm                   F
Billy was a bright one, Tommy's off his head
Bb                   F     C
Mother loved them both the same, at least that's what she said
Dm                   F
I don't predict the future, I don't care about the past
Bb                   F     C
Send them both to DSS, now you've had your chance


[Refrain]

Dm 
The poison stole your babies
F
The judges took your rights
Bb                  F
You can have your children 
C
or the night 
Dm     F     C     Dm        (x4)


[Verse 2]

Dm                   F
I suppose you've been a victim, I suspect you may have lied
C                    Dm
Have you lost all ambition, won't you give this thing a try
Dm                   F
If you can't and you fail, you won't be the only loser
C                    Dm
These kids don't stand a chance with you in their future


[Pre-Chorus]

They've been taken away! Hey!
Dm   F   C   Bb
They've been taken away!

Send them both to DSS, now you've had your chance
