REVOLUTION – John Butler trio                  

STRUM dddd  dddd  for each chord in verse
      Palm mute

(I like to play the C chord like this (332010) for this song I think it makes it 
sound more like it.)

Em                                G
So tell me family now what do you think?
                C                  Asus2(x02200)  (use Asus2 for all A)
Watch it all go down that great big sink.
              Em                  G
watch how the scum rises to the top.
           C                          A
Don't you wonder when it's all gonna stop?
             Em               G
Sometimes I wonder how we do sleep.
             C                  A 
serving the dodgy companies we keep?
                Em                         G
all kickin n scroungin for the very first place.
         C                      A
dictionary definition of a rat race?
             Em                 G
Pay off the loosers we elect to lead.
                  C                           A
stealing from the mouths that we're meant to feed.
                    Em              G
enslaving the very clothes off of my backs
            C                   A
I feel the sting but i hear no crack, no crack,

(STRUMMING FOR CHORUS - d, udu d, udu ddu)

C                   G
Running through the fire
running through the flame
running through the hatred
pushin through the blame
               G               D
runnin through hopelessness & shame
revolution already underway

Big Heavy Pirates man digging those holes,    messing with something that they can't control. 
Tresspassing lands where they don't belong,   all I hear is screaming where there once were songs.
I got my brothers there fighting those wars,  fighting over scraps and scraping their souls.
Under a blanket of a fire and pride     that can't keep us warm for the cold inside, 
inside, I'm saying


So tell me when you think we're gonna rise?   Wake from this slumber wipe the tears from our eyes?
Yes from this nightmare yes I must now wake,    open my fist my destiny I takeĀ !
Good people sick and tired of being pushed around,      we call them kings but I see no crown. 
Tell me when you think we'll just stand up,     say enough is enough is enough,enough I'm saying


Take back your feet, take back your hands.      Take back your words, take back your lands.
Take back your heart, take back your pride.     Don't got to run, don't got to hide.   Revolution.
