Capo 2

     G
The countryside is dying
        G/f#
They're closing village stores
       C
While shepherds watched their flocks by night
     G                    D
The government burn them all
     Am
And here's another post office
       C     D            G
With boards across the door

         G
Now the rich folks came from london
   G/f#
To breathe the cleaner air
      C
They listen to The Archers
         G                      D
Buy new barbours, grow their hair
Am
Then they buy up all the houses

So country people born-and-bred
C       D         G
Can't afford to live there

         G
Now the Countryside Alliance
      G/f#
We'll call them 'the cunts' for short
      C
They promised in defiance
         G               D
That a battle would be fought
           Am
Then they ignored the real issues
           C           D           G
And just shout about their bloody sport

             C                          G                 D
And you can call it a betrayal well it looks like that to me
             C                          G                D
And you can call it bad behaviour or a waste of time and money
         C                         G           D
And I've never been in favour of police brutality
              Em
But when the huntsman comes a-marchin'
      C       D      G              C       D      G     
You give him one for me, officer, give him one for me.

         G
Now the cunts have come to London
   G/f#
To show us all what for:
C
There were only 20 thousand of them
G                         D                 
Marching down through Whitehall
      Am
But they were such a bunch of thugs
Am
And the police arrested more
Than when 2 million normal people
C         D          G
Marched against the war

             C                          G                 D
And you can call it a betrayal well it looks like that to me
             C                          G                D
And you can call it bad behaviour or a waste of time and money
         C                         G           D
And I've never been in favour of police brutality
              Em
But when the huntsman comes a-marchin'
      C       D      G              C       D      G     
You give him one for me, officer, give him one for me.

           Em             Am              C               G
Where were you when the miners fought to save their livelihoods?
          Em               Am                C           G
You were dressed up in red velvet somewhere deep in the woods
     Em               Am             C                  G
You loved the fucking poll tax, you propped up Maggie Thatcher
         Em                      Am
And you didn't give a fuck about Tony Blair
         C                        G
'Til he threw your hobby back at ya.

    G
The countryside is dying
    G/f#
Some say it's already dead
         C                              G                  D     
And the huntsman's got a boner as the dogs rip the fox to shreds
         Am
Then he smears the blood on his daughter's face
     C          D      G
And drags her back to bed.

             C                          G                 D
And you can call it a betrayal well it looks like that to me
             C                          G                D
And you can call it bad behaviour or a waste of time and money
         C                         G           D
And I've never been in favour of police brutality
              Em
But when the huntsman comes a-marchin'
      C       D      G              C       D      G     
You give him one for me, officer, give him one for me.
