Capo II (EVERYTHING RELEVANT TO CAPO!)
standard tuning EADGBe


INTRO
G(hammer on the E string)
then on the A string slide whilst strumming from 3 to 5 to 7 and back to three.
(play around with it)


G
The countryside is dying
G/F#
They're closing village stores
C
While shepherds watched their flocks by night
G                           D
The government burned them all
Am
And here's another post office
    C    G                 D
With boards across the door

G
The people from the city came
G/F#
To breathe the cleaner air
C
They listen to The Archers
         G                    D
Buy new coats and grow their hair
Am
Then they buy up all the houses
So country people born-and-bred
C       G           D
Can't afford to live there

G
Now the Countryside Alliance
G/F#
We'll call them 'the cunts' for short
C
They promised in defiance
         G               D
That a battle would be fought
      Am
Then ignored the real problems
           C           G      D
To shout about their bloody sport

C                        G                 D
Call it a betrayal - it looks like that to me
C                         G                D
Call it bad behaviour and a waste of time and money
C                         G                D
I've never been in favour of police brutality
              Em
But when the huntsman comes a-marchin'
      C    D      G                   C       D   G     
Well give him one for me, officer, give him one for me.

G
Now the cunts have come to London
G/F#
To give us all what for:
C
There were only 20 thousand of them
G                         D                 
Marching down through Whitehall
      Am
But they were such a bunch of thugs
Am
The police arrested more
Than when 2 million normal people
C         G          D
Marched against the war

C                          G             D
Call it a betrayal - looks like that to me
C                           G             D
Call it bad behaviour and a waste of time and money
C                            G          D
I've never been in favour of police brutality
              Em                        
But when the huntsman comes a-marchin'
       C        D      G             C       D       G         
Well give him one for me, officer, give him one for me.

          Em              Am                C            G
Where were you when the miners fought to save their livelihoods?
        Em             Am            C           G
Dressed up in red velvet somewhere deep in the woods
     Em               Am             C                  G
You loved the fucking poll tax, you propped up Margaret Thatcher
         Em              Am
And you didn't give a fuck about Tony Blair
         C                        G
'Til he threw your hobby back at ya.

G
The countryside is dying
G/F#
Some say it's already dead
          C                           G               D     
And the huntsman has a boner as the dogs pull it to shreds
         Am
Then he wipes the blood on his daughter's face
     C          G      D
And drags her back to bed.

C                         G             D
Call it a betrayal - looks like that to me
C                          G              D
Call it bad behaviour and a waste of time and money
C                          G              D
And I've never been in favour of police brutality
              Em
But when the huntsman comes a-marchin'
            C   D      G             C    D        G
Well give him one for me, officer, give him one for me.

The notes of the intro/link thing are more like
relative to the capo)
3->5->7->8 on the E string, then
5->3s2p0 on the A string (where s=slide down and p=pull off)
followed quickly by h3 on the E string (where h=hammer on)

Although I'm not sure that's perfect, it's closer than what this tab says.
