D

Verse 1:

D                              G            A
 I could tell the meaning of a word like se-rene,
D                            G         A
 I got some 'O' grades, when I was six-teen.
D                                  G             A
 I can tell the difference, 'tween margarine and butter,
D                                  G           A
 I can say "Saskatchawen", without starting to stutter.

Chorus 1:

      A           D
But I can't under-stand,
       G           D             A    (n.C)         D
Why we let someone else rule our land; we're cap in hand.

Verse 2:

D                              G          A
 I could get a broken jaw from being in a fight,
D                          G            A
 I know it's evening, when day turns to night.
D                           G           A
 I can understand why Stran-raer lie so lowly,
D                                   G             A
 They could save a lot of points by signing Hib's goalie.

Chorus 2:

      A           D
But I can't under-stand,
       G           D             A    (n.C)         D
Why we let someone else rule our land; we're cap in hand.

Bridge 1:

G   D      A         D      G   D      A       D
 We fight, when they ask us, we boast, then we cower.
G   D    A     D
 We beg, for a piece of;
G                                               A
 What's already, what's already, what's already ours.

D                       G          A
 Once I thought I could make God a bribe,

 So I said I was in His lost tribe.
D                     G          A
 Getting handouts can be so frus-trating;
D                          G            A
 "Get in line son, there's five million waiting".

Chorus 3:

      A           D
But I can't under-stand,
       G           D             A    (n.C)         D
Why we let someone else rule our land; we're cap in hand.
      A           D
But I can't under-stand,
       G           D             A    (n.C)         D
Why we let someone else rule our land; we're cap in hand.
      A           D
But I can't under-stand,
       G           D             A    (n.C)         D
Why we let someone else rule our land; we're cap in hand.

Cap in hand, cap in hand, cap in hand, cap in hand.

Verse 1:

C                          D
 Thought that I'd be happy, going to be so happy,

 Living life alone and never sharing anything.

 Thought that I was finished, thought that I was complete,
F
 Thought that I was whole, instead of being half of something.

C                           D
 Thought that I was growing, growing older, wiser,
F
 Understanding why this world held nothing for my spirit.

 Thought the song was sung and I could never sing another.

C                               D
 Thought my faith was misplaced, thought my back was broken,
F
 Broken by a weight that I was never fit to carry.

C                         D
 Thought I knew this city, thought I knew all about it;
F
 And then one night I went to Morningside and you were waiting.

Chorus 2:

C     D        F    C
 I... met you, I... met you.
C     D        F    C
 I... met you, I... met you.

Come on nature; I don't want to read a book or talk about the world.

Come on nature; let me show the way that I've been feeling all a-long.
        G       C                                                    G     D7
Come on nature; just because I don't feel weak, don't mean I feel so strong.

Verse 2:

          G               C                                  D   D7
I've been known, to ask a few more favours than I should, of you.

And in time, I'm sure I'll still want things that you could never do.

C              D    D7
 If she wasn't mine,
         C               D    D7
If I was stepping out of line,
          C               Cm                  D              D7
But she's mine and I'm in line, and she's the best I've ever seen.

      G           C                                D    D7
My de-sire, is to stretch myself inside her body's fire.

C              D  D7
 If I stumbled in,
       C                    D    D7
Then I could say that I had been,
       C                  Cm               Am             D    D7
To the Chamber where your greatest work of art was on dis-play.

 I'm on my way, to what I want from this world,
    G                      C              D    C
And years from now, you'll make it to the next world.
G                    C              D   C
 And everything that you receive up yon-der;

 I took the road that brought me to your home town,
G                   C                    D    C
 I took the bus, to streets that I could walk down.
G                         C                D      C
 I walked the streets, to find the one I'd looked for,

 I climbed the stair, that led me to your front door.

 To keep my heart from jumping through my mouth dear.

G                      C                D   C
 To keep the past, the past and not the pre-sent,
G                       D7
 To try and learn, when you teach me a lesson.

C              D7               G        G7
 And now, that I don't want for anything.

9...WHAT DO YOU DO?... by The Proclaimers
----------------------...................

*from 'Sunshine on Leith' (1988)*


Intro:

G  G7  C  Cm, G  D7  C

Verse 1:

G                             G7
 Yeah, I know you're right, I see it in your fierce eyes.
C                                              Cm
 But me I've never thought straight, since the day I had the first doubt.
G                                   D7
 Yes, I know you're right, and I'll back you to a point, pal.
         C                          G
But I'll never be constrained by, a-nother man's ideas now.

Verse 2:

  G                            G7
I spent too long on this road, looking for the answers,
    C                   Cm
But poverty and failure, aren't what I'm after.
  G                                      D7
I painted "fight" on factories, but they closed the factory down, pal.
          C                                G
I want to find out where the heart's gone, find out where the nerves gone.

Chorus 1:

D            C           G
 What do you do, when de-mocracy fails you?
B7   C       G
 Ah, ah, ah, ah.
D            C            G
 What do you do, when the rest can't see it's true?
B7   C       G
 Ah, ah, ah, ah.

Verse 3:

G                        G7
 Pat votes the Scots way, just like her mother,
    C                       Cm
But south always takes all; just like her brother.
    G                         D7
The next time she might vote; so might the others,
    C                                     G
But time's running out, pal, 'cos they're giving up in numbers.

Chorus 2:

D            C           G
 What do you do, when de-mocracy's all through?
B7   C       G
 Ah, ah, ah, ah.
D            C           G
 What do you do, when mi-nority means you?
B7   C       G
 Ah, ah, ah, ah.

'Cos even with ones up the back of a bus;
                               D
There was always the risk of a slap in the puss.

Chorus 1:

    D        A         D                     A
But Jean, oh Jean, you let me get lucky with you.

Verse 2:

    D                        A
The first time I met you, it did cross my mind,
                               D
The next time I saw you, there wasn't the time.
    D                       A
The third time I saw you, I thought that I would,
                             D
The fourth time I met you, I knew that I could.

Chorus 2:

    D        A         D                     A
But Jean, oh Jean, you let me get lucky with you.

Bridge 1:

  D                       A
I love her, I love her, I love her,
                          D
I love her, I love her, I love her.

Verse 3:

  D                   A
I want you forever, I want you for good,
                           D
So I'm gonna treat you the way that I should.
    D                      A
For your soul and body, my heart's gonna pound,
                            D
Even after the day that I'm laid in the ground.

Chorus 3:

     D        A         D                     A
'Cos Jean, oh Jean, you let me get lucky with you.
D         A         D                     A
 Jean, oh Jean, you let me get lucky with you.

I love her, I love her, I love her.

I love her, I love her, I love her,
                          D
I love her, I love her, I love her.
