     Bm   Am   C    G    D

Intro: D,Am,C,G

Bm               
When the iceberg hit,
Am
Oh they must have known,
C
God moves on the water
     G
Like Casey Jones.

Bm
So I walked downtown
   Am
On my telephone,
    C
And took a lazy turn
            G          D
Through the redeye zone.

Bm
It was a five-band bill,
  Am
A two-dollar show.
          C
I saw the van out in front
     G
From Idaho,

        Bm
And the girl passed out
Am
In the backseat trash.
          C
There was no way they'd make
       G                 D
Even a half a tank of gas.

Bm
They looked sick and stoned
   Am
And strangely dressed.
    C
And no one showed
         G
From the local press.

Bm
But I watched them walk
Am
Through the bottom land,
       C
And I wished I played
     G               C
In a rock & roll band.

Break: D,Am,C,G

D    Am    C
...  Hey, hey,
G                     D      Am      C, G
It was the fourteenth day in April.

Bm
Well they closed it down,
         Am
With the sails in rags.
         C
And they swept up the fags
         G
And the local rags.

Bm
Threw the plastic cups
Am
In the plastic bags,
        C
And the cooks cleaned the kitchen
         G                    C
With the staggers and the jags.

Break: D,Am,C,G

Bm
Ruination day,
Am
And the sky was red.
       C
I went back to work,
    G
And back to bed.

Bm
And the iceberg broke,
        Am
And the Okies fled,
        C
And the Great Emancipator
       G                            D
Took a bullet in the back of the head...

  
   For the 2nd guitar just find a 1930s Epiphone and mess around in G.
