GOING UNDERGROUND by THE JAM

A couple tabs were slightly out on here.  This is copied from the 1980 sheet 
music.  Distinct key change on second half of song.

[Guitar Intro Riff]
G----2----2-44-764-----|
D-00-0-00-0-00-000-----|

D5                 G/D                                    
Some people might say my life is in a rut,
But Im quite happy living with what I got                
People might say that I should strive for more,
But Im so happy I cant see the point.

B                     D#m
Somethings happening here today
A show of strength with your boys brigade and,
Im so happy and youre so kind
You want more money - of course I don't mind

E                  F#                  B                  D#m
To buy nuclear textbooks for atomic crimes  And the public gets what the public wants
E                  F#
But I want nothing this societys got 

[CHORUS]
        B              D#m
Im going underground, (going underground)
        E                    F#
Where the brass bands play and feet start to pound
        B               D#m
Going underground, (going underground)
        E                     F#
Well let the boys all sing and the boys all shout for tomorrow

[MUSICAL] 

B, D#, E, F#

D5                     G/D
Some people might get some pleasure out of hate
Me, I've enough already on my plate
People might need some tension to relax
[Me?] I'm too busy dodging between the flak

B                     D#m
What you see is what you get
Youve made your bed, you better lie in it
You choose your leaders and place your trust
As their lies put you down and their promises bust
E                  F#                  B                  D#m
Youll see kidney machine replaced by rockets and guns And the public wants what the public gets
E                  F#
But I dont get what this society wants

[CHORUS]
        B              D#m
Im going underground, (going underground)
        E                    F#
Where the brass bands play and feet start to pound
        B               D#m
Going underground, (going underground)
        E                     F#
Well let the boys all sing and the boys all shout for tomorrow

C#m             B
               La la la la la  
               La la la la la  
We talk and we talk until my head explodes
I turn on the news and my body froze

D#m                E             F#               F#
Braying sheep on my TV screen Make this boy shout, make this boy scream!

Braying sheep on my TV screen Make this boy shout, make this boy scream!


C#                 F                    F#                  G#
Going underground         well let the brass bands play and feet start to pound
Going underground  well let the brass bands play & feet start to pound pound pound
Going underground  well let the boys all sing and let the boys all shout for 

Finish on F#
Tomorrow...
