     D           A             E            G
They asked me to come down and watch the parade

       D              A               E            G
And to march down the street like the duracell bunny

       D          A             E     G
With a wink and a wave from the cavalcade

D            A          E             G
Throwing out candy that looks like money

F#7                   Bm         A          E*         G           F#7*  
   To people passing by that all seem to be going the other way

A              D         A            E       G
Said won't you follow me down to the rose parade?

-----

        D      A        E              G
Tripped over a dog in a choke-chain collar

D           A            E             G
People were shouting and pushing and saying

           D        A           E             G
And when I traded a smoke for a food stamp dollar

    D        A        E                G
A ridiculous marching band started playing

F#7                     Bm        A         E*       G              F#7*
    And got me singing 'long with some half-hearted victory song

-----

A           D         A           E        G
  Won't you follow me down to the rose parade?

          D         A           E        G
Won't you follow me down to the rose parade?

          F#7       E           A       E       G
Won't you follow me down to the rose parade?

-----

    D           A      E            G
The trumpet has obviously been drinking

          D          A        E          G
'Cos he's fucking up even the simplest lines

    D          A            E              G
I'd say it's a sight that's quite worth seeing

               D          A           E               G
It's just that everyone's interest is stronger than mine

F#7                        Bm                 A    E* 
   And when they clean the street I'll be the only shit

         G             F#7*
that's left behind

-----

A           D         A           E       G
  Won't you follow me down to the rose parade?

          D         A           E       G
Won't you follow me down to the rose parade?

          F#7       E           A       E       G
Won't you follow me down to the rose parade?
