Em Em7 Em X3  -  Em, B5 Bb5, Bb5 A5 

[Verse 1]
          Em            Em7  Em
There's a mad dog pulling at his chain
  Em           Em7  Em 
A hint of danger in his eye
Em             Em7      Em
Alarm bells raging round his brain
And the chimney's broken in the sky

[Chorus 1]
Wake up
                     A7 A
Wake up and smell the roses
A B5 C
     Close your eyes and pray this wind don't change
C D5    Em                          Em7  Em
There's nothing but screams in the field of dreams
Em                     Em7  Em
Nothing but hope at the end of the road
Em                    Em7   Em
Nothing but gold in the chimney smoke
Em                 B5 Bb5  Bb5 A5
Come on honey it's re-al   mo--ney

Em Em7 Em X3  -  Em, B5 Bb5, Bb5 A5 

[Verse 2]
This is the room where they make the explosives
Em                                 Em7
Where they put your name on the bomb
  Here's where they bury the buts and the ifs
And scratch out words like right and wrong

[Chorus 2]
Wake up
                      A7      A
Wake up and smell the phosphorus
A B5 C
    This is the room we keep the human hair
C D5 Em
     Don't ask don't tell it couldn't be lost for us
Em7   Em
Yeah, a little less cash in the stash in the cupboard
At the bottom of the stair
B5 Bb5   Bb5 A5
Mo-ney   hon-ey

Em  Em/C Em/Bb Em/B

[Intro Chords]                      
Em Em7 Em X3
Em, B5 Bb5, Bb5 A5 X2 

[Chorus 3]
Wake up
                       A7  A
Wake up and smell the bacon
A B5 C
     Run your greasy fingers through her hair
C D5 B           B5  Bb5  Bb5 A5    F#m   
     This is the life that you have taken
F#m X8
C C5 B5, B5 Bb5

[Verse 3]
Em                Em7    Em
Just a line in the captain's log
Em                      Em7   Em
  Just a whine from a resident dog
Em                   Em7     Em7
Another kid didn't make the grade
Em           B5   Bb5   Bb5  A5 
Come on honey it's a    fair trade

[Chorus 4]
Wake up
                     A7  A
Wake up and smell the roses
A B5 C
     Throw her photo on the funeral pyre
D5 Em  
   Yeah, now we can forget the threat she poses
Em7  Em
     Girl you know you couldn't get much higher

B5 Bb5, Bb5 A5, B5 Bb5, Bb5 A5,   (end on open E low string)
