The colonel is the governor
                   E7
He steals from his own supply
     Am                     E7
The Jail house is full of small fry
                     Am   Am/G  F

And heís on a slice of the cake
                     E7
And everyone in this occupied land
           Am   Am/G  F

                  C          E7
