			 Protection Racket - Fionn Regan
Tabbed by: Jacob Norris [FionnFan]

This works much better on an acoustic guitar.
May not be the right key, but it sounds okay. 
Go easy on me it's my first tab.

Tuning: standard EADGBe

B|--10---10---X--8---X--7--7--X--5--X--3--3--X--5--5-----| *KNOCK KNOCK*

The next bit goes
(In Barre Chords:)

Be quiet katie there is someone at the hatch
G       F  G   F        G       F      G 
You curse the darkness and I'll strike a match
    F         G   F        G    F        G  
Undoing the latch I tripped on the scales and fell
  Bm        G       Bm                         G 
Just as someone hit the reception bell
Am                        Cm
The ghost of that injury still remains,  my ankle starts to swell just 
    G    F        G  F   G    F     G  F    G     F         G      F   
before it rains
  G    F  G
leaders of nations, wild alsations, crumbling foundations, 
Bm         G        Bm      G       Am                                       
I've lost my patience
[ Tab from: ]
These big companies are giving us the squeeze
        Am    C         Am            C
Lets raise our glasses to mr. onassis

  Protection racket (hand over the packet)
G     D       C                     
 Rome needs cement (in this event)
G     D         C
Go over to the till katie (the national)
   G            D        C
 Pay this man his rent
G         D       C

It's a standard procedure
       Em            D


I forgot to mention that grandmas pension
Will ease the rent book tension

The rest of the song follows a regular pattern, and you should figure out the 
strumming pattern. I've tabbed everything you need to know.

A little birdie told me you've been syphoning the poor box
I heard the knitting circle disscusing chubb locks
Whats all the commotion? what do they expect?
With no sign of a promotion I've lost my self respect
You see I built this heap from scratch when I was poor
now they're asking me to hoover the floor
Splash some water over me slap round the face
Did I miss a meeting I don't recognise the place

The plug in the socket burns a hole in the pocket

These big companies are giving us the squeeze
Lets raise our glasses to mr. onassis

Protection racket (hand over the packet)
Rome needs cement (in this event)
Go over to the till katie (the national)
Pay this man his rent

it's a standard procedure
