  the following....

  [Am] See my sister got raped,  [D] So a man got killed
  [C/G]Local boy went to prison,  [D] Man's Buried on a hill ... etc

  ... repeat once more and then play rythmn section under solo


     Twelve men broke loose in '73
     From millhaven maximum security
     Twelve pictures lined up across the front page
     seems the mounties had a summertime war to wage

     the chief told the people they had nothing to fear
     the last thing they'd wanna do is hang around here
     they mostly came from towns with long french names
     but one of the dozen was a hometown shame

chorus:  same pattern on the table, same clock on the wall
         been one seat empty 18 years in all
         freezing slow time away from the world
         he's 38 years old, never kissed a girl
         he's 38 years old, never kissed a girl

     we were sittin' at the table, heard the telephone ring
     father (pa?) said he'd tell me if he saw anything
     heard the tap on the window in the middle of the night
     held back the curtains for my older brother mike

     see my sister got raped, so a man got killed
     little boy went to prison, man's buried on the hill
     folks went back to normal when they closed the case
     they still stare at their shoes when they pass our place

      ----------solo-----------------

     my mother cried 'the horror has finally ceased'
     he whispered 'yeah, for the time being, at least'
     an' (then?) over his shoulder, on the squad car megaphone
     said 'let's go mikey, son, we're takin' you home'

chorus: same pattern on the table.....


p.s. don't forget that 'tracy chapman lilt' on the third lines of the
verses (except 'see my sister...')  at twelve, mostly, heard, over.
have fun!!!
