Mark Erelli - Hope Dies Last


CAPO: 4th fret



[Intro]
Am  F  C    Am  F  C

[Verse 1]
     Am                F                  C
The alarm goes off and you hit the shower first
Am                        F               C
I make the coffee, it’s a routine we’ve rehearsed
         F                                           C     G
Turn the radio on and they’re wishing us a happy new year
    Am               F           C   Am  F  C
But nothing much has changed here


[Verse 2]
        Am                F                    C
Another suicide bomb at a market in the Middle East
    Am                   F           C
The authorities estimate 28 dead, at least
     F                                       C      G
Sand soaked with martyr’s blood and mothers’ tears 
    Am               F            C   Am  F  C
But nothing much has changed here


[Verse 3]
          Am                      F                 C
The whole country’s holding those coalminers in its prayers
Am                F                         C
Counting down how long they’ve gone without air
      F                             C        G
The reporter does his best to sound sincere 
    Am               F            C
But nothing much has changed here


[Verse 4]
              Am                F                     C
Now there’s a man of God saying something ‘bout New Orleans
        Am                      F                 C
How the Mississippi River gonna wash them sinners clean
       F                               C     G
Oh the righteous prey on ignorance and fear 
   Am               F            C
Oh nothing much has changed here


[Chorus]
              G     C         F
And there’s a storm coming up fast
       G                    C 
Better lash yourself to the mast
       Em                F
But of all that comes to pass
Bb        G7
Hope dies last


[Verse 5]
    Am               F                        C
Politicians pointing fingers like they always do
               Am              F                 C
When there’s a scandal looming larger in the rearview
     F                                   C     G
When elections may be closer than they appear
   Am               F            C
Oh nothing much has changed here


[Verse 6]
       Am                    F               C
In the eyes of the President citizens are enemies
     Am                           F              C
He’d rather talk to Jesus than to anyone who disagrees
        F                                        C     G
But the phones are bugged and Big Brother is all ears 
   Am               F            C
Oh nothing much has changed here


[Chorus]
              G     C         F
And there’s a storm coming up fast
       G                    C 
Better lash yourself to the mast
       Em                F
But of all that comes to pass
Bb        G7
Hope dies last


[Verse 7]
    Am                  F              C
Sometimes it’s all that you can do to avert your eyes
       Am                      F             C
If you let too much in it will leave you paralysed
       F                                   C     G    Am  F  C
It's a world where all you love could disappear 


[Verse 8]
     Am             F                         C
So I take you in my arms before you leave for work
        Am              F                  C
I got a love for you so fierce and true it hurts
    F                                         C    G
You smile at something that I whisper in your ear 
Am          F 
Nothing has changed
Am          F 
Nothing has changed
          Am         F           
Nothing’s ever gonna change here


[Outro]
Am  F  C    Am  F  C
