2...CAP IN HAND... by The Proclaimers
------------------...................

*from 'Sunshine On Leith' (1988)*


Intro:

D

Verse 1:

D
 I could tell the meaning,
     G            A
Of a word like se-rene,
D
 I got some 'O' grades
     G         A
When I was six-teen.
D
 I can tell the difference,
       G             A
'Tween margarine and butter,
D
 I can say "Saskatchawen",
        G            A
Without starting to stutter.

Chorus 1:

      A           D
But I can't under-stand,
       G           D             A
Why we let someone else rule our land;
(n.c)         D
 We're cap in hand.

Verse 2:

D
 I could get a broken jaw,
     G          A
From being in a fight,
D
 I know it's evening,
     G            A
When day turns to night.
D
 I can understand,
          G            A
Why Stran-raer lie so lowly,
D      
 They could save a lot of points,
   G             A
By signing Hib's goalie.

Chorus 2:

      A           D
But I can't under-stand,
       G           D             A
Why we let someone else rule our land;
(n.c)         D
 We're cap in hand.

Middle 8:

G   D      A         D
 We fight, when they ask us,
G   D      A       D
 We boast, then we cower.

G   D    A     D
 We beg, for a piece of;
G
 What's already, what's already,
               A
What's already ours.

Instrumental:

D  G  A (x4)

Verse 3:

D
 Once I thought I could,
G           A
 Make God a bribe,
D
 So I said I was,
G            A
 In His lost tribe.
D
 Getting handouts can,
G           A
 Be so frus-trating;
D
 "Get in line son,
        G            A
There's five million waiting".

Chorus 3:

      A           D
But I can't under-stand,
        G           D              A
Why you let someone else rule your land;
(n.c)          D
 You're cap in hand.

      A           D
But I can't under-stand,
       G           D             A
Why we let someone else rule our land;
(n.c)         D
 We're cap in hand.

      A           D
But I can't under-stand,
       G           D             A
Why we let someone else rule our land;
(n.c)         D
 We're cap in hand.

Coda:

D
 Cap in hand, cap in hand,
Cap in hand, cap in hand.
Cap in hand, cap in hand,
                          D
Cap in hand, cap in hand.

 Going to be so happy,

 Living life alone,
And never sharing anything.

 Thought the game had ended,
F
 Thought the song was sung,
And I could never sing another.

c
 Thought my faith was misplaced,
D
 Thought my back was broken,
F
 Broken by a weight,
That I was never fit to carry.

c
 Thought I knew this city,
D
 Thought I knew all about it;
F
 And then one night,
I went to morningside,
And you were waiting.

Verse 1:

        G
Come on nature;
c
 I don't want to read a book,
                  D      D7
Or talk about the world.
        G
Come on nature;
c
 I just want to spend some time,
                 D    D7
Being boy to the girl.

        G
Come on nature;
c
 Let me show the way,
                             D    D7
That I've been feeling all a-long.
        G
Come on nature;
c
 Just because I don't feel weak,
                     D      D7
Don't mean I feel so strong.

Verse 2:

          G
I've been known,
         c
To ask a few more favours,
                 D   D7
Than I should of you.
       G
And in time,
              c
I'm sure I'll still want things,

That you could never do.

c              D    D7
 If she wasn't mine,
         c               D     D7
If I was stepping out of line,
          c               Cm
But she's mine and I'm in line,

And she's the best I've ever seen.

        G
Come on nature;

 Every colour that she's in.

Verse 1:

G
 Yeah I know you're right,
  G7
I see it in your fierce eyes.
c
 But me I've never thought straight,
          Cm
Since the day I had the first doubt.

G
 Yes I know you're right,
         D7
And I'll back you to a point pal.
         c
But I'll never be constrained by,
   G
An-other man's ideas now.

Verse 2:

  G
I spent too long on this road,
G7
 Looking for the answers,
    c
But poverty and failure,
Cm
 Aren't what I'm after.

  G
I painted "fight" on factories,
         D7
But they closed the factory down pal.
          c
I want to find out where the heart's gone,
G
 Find out where the nerves gone.

 What do you do,
        G
When de-mocracy fails you?
B7   c       G
 Ah, ah, ah, ah
.
D            c
 What do you do,
         G
When the rest can't see it's true?
B7   c       G
 Ah, ah, ah, ah.

Verse 3:

G
 Pat votes the Scots way,
G7
 Just like her mother,
    c
But south always takes all;
Cm
 Just like her brother.

    G
The next time she might vote;
D7
 So might the others,
    c
But time's running out pal,
             G
'Cos they're giving up in numbers.

Chorus 2:

D            c
 What do you do,
        G
When de-mocracy's all through?
B7   c       G
 Ah, ah, ah, ah.

D            c
 What do you do,
        G
When mi-nority means you?
B7   c       G
 Ah, ah, ah, ah.
