I really enjoy this version, a good one to sing and play.

CAPO on the second fret.





    A     G


   D    G    A     Em

Verse one

All the boys who called their mothers on that day
We're no tough bunch but they had the nerves to go and say


    A                     G
That all your secrets were drowned
     A                     G
With the pioneers who were flooded from this town
     A                     G
They packed their bags only moments too late
With the pounding waves crashing up against the weakened watergates


D          G     A             D
      Dire times call for dire faces
          G               Em
So lovely dancer call and answer
          D             G
Trade our places in the night
             Em      G
Were running barefoot you and I
G                   G
Dead lovers salivate broken hearts tessellate

And all the kids who cut their knees on that old schoolyard fence
We're holding out for posterity and self defence     

We beat them down again
Its no fun playing cowboy for pretend
We'll show them what the backs of our hands are for
The divide is clear in the coming year the rich will take the poor

Wow this is awesome, nice work! You should post it on more sites because it took me a while to find, Might make it easier for others.

If you can be bothered, it would be good if Verse and Pre Chorus 1 were in there as well - not just the second half of the song. Will make it easier rather than having to flick between a lyrics page and back to this for the chords.
