Standard Tuning
One downstroke for each chord


G                G
Brute Force and Ignorance,
D              D  Dsus4
Just hit town,
D            D
Looking like survivors,
G                 G
From the Lost and Found.

G                G
Brute Force and Ignorance,
       D              D  Dsus4
Have come to play,
   D                  D
A one-night stand at eight o`clock,
      G                 G
Then they`ll be on their way.

G               G
This old town`s exploding,
          D             Dsus4
And the mayor`s uptight,
      D                      D
He`d like to make it to the show,
        G                   G
But he knows it`s not his night.

     G             G
He`s got to be beholding,
D              D      Dsus4
To his legal spouse,
           D                  D
But she`s put the thumbscrews on him,
      G               G
And snuck out of the house.

There she goes.

      Am     Am     Am     Am
The picture on the poster,
            G     G    Am   Am
Raised an eyebrow or two,
     Am   Am        Am
At fifty-five to seven,
             G       G         C
Lord, you should`ve seen the queue.

Am    Am        Am     Am
City slick and country hick,
      G    G      Am
They came one and all,
      Am           Am            Am      Am
The traffic-light girl and the downhome kids,
G         G       C
Assembled in the hall.

G                G
Brute Force and Ignorance,
       D          D    Dsus4
Yes, thats the name
D                  D
Young folks gonna miss 'em
G               G
Now they gone away

            G           G
Well, the show got so crazy,
            D                   D    Dsus4
Today they took the billboard down,
             D         D
I`ll never forget the scene last night,
                     G             G
When the band was escorted out of town.

       G                        G
This little town`s back in slow motion,
     D         D Dsus4
I`m sad to say,
D             D
After the confusion,
        G           G
It`ll never be the same.

         G                G
Well, I took a walk down Main Street,
D                      D  Dsus4
Just to pass the time,
D                      D
And I could hear that music,
       G                  G
Still rolling through my mind.

G                    G
Brute Force and Ignorance,
D                  D Dsus4
They sure hit town,
     D              D
And if you want to find them, buddy,
             G                 G
They`re down at the Lost and Found.
