LIVING ON A THIN LINE- The Kinks

D                                    C               G
All the stories we've been told of kings and days of old
                  D                     F       C
But there's no England now (there's no England now)
 D
All the wars that were won and lost
  C       G                        D            F  C
Somehow don't seem to matter very much anymore
 D                                        
All the lies we were told (all the lies we were told)
C                      G                       D                  F  C
All the lives of the people running round and castles that burned
 D                     C                G      D
Now I see change but inside we're the same as we ever were

D                     C  G                                         D
Living on a thin line oooohh tell me now what are we supposed to do?
D                     C  G                                        D
Living on a thin line oooohh tell me now what are we supposed to do?
D                         C                   G
Living on a thin line, living this way, each day's a dream
                                      D
What am I, what are we supposed to do?
 D                      C   G                                      D
Living on a thin line, oooohh tell me now what are we supposed to do?

C     G                 D
Now another century nearly gone (gone, gone)
C             G      D
What are we gonna leave for the young?
            C                      G                D
What we couldn't do, or what we wouldn't do, disappoint but does it matter?
           C                   G
Does it matter much, does it matter much to you?
          D
Does it ever really matter? Yes, it really really matters!

Living on a thin line oooohh tell me now what are we supposed to do?
Living on a thin line oooohh tell me now what are we supposed to do?

F                              G                                  Em
Then another (leave us cents), break their hearts and break some heads
                        G        F  Am
Is there nothing we can say or do?
 Am                       G                          C
Blame the future on the past, always lost in bloody guts
                   D
And when they're gone it tears you

Living on a thin line oooohh tell me now what are we supposed to do?
Living on a thin line oooohh tell me now what are we supposed to do?
D                     F   C   D
Living on a thin line oooohh


NOTE: I'm not sure of all the words, especially the "leave us cents" part.

Excellent. The line at F is "Then another leader says, break their hearts and break some heads".
