A Rush and a Push and the Land Is Ours
	(Morrissey/Marr)

This piano song that opens up -Strangeways, Here We Come- is quite simple.
It is only three chords really.  The intro can be played this way:

   Dm              Bb

E ---1---1---1---1-----------------||
B ---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3-||
G ---2---2---2---2---3---3---3---3-||
D -0-------0---3-----3---3---3---3-||
A -----0-----------1-------1---3---||
E ---------------------1-----------||

That is basically how the piano plays the intro and possibly the rest of
the song.  The lyrics without chords on top just go from Dm to Bb:


HELLO
i am the ghost of troubled joe hung by his pretty white neck
some eighteen months ago
i travelled to a mystical time zone but i missed my bed
so i soon came home, they said:
there is too much caffeine in your blood stream
and a lack of real spice in your life
i said:
leave me alone, because i~m alright, dad
just surprised to be on my own...

Eb                     Dm
ooh, but don~t mention love
             Eb                  Dm
i~d hate the strain of the pain again

a rush and a push and the land that we stand on is ours
it has been before so i shall be again
and people who are uglier than you and i
they take what they need and leave

Eb                     Dm
ooh, but don~t mention love
             Eb                           Dm
i~d hate the pain of the strain all over again

a rush and a push and the land that we stand on is ours
it has been before so why can~t it be now?
and people who are weaker than you and i
they take what they want from life

Eb                     Dm
ooh, but don~t mention love
Eb                    Dm
no, no- don~t mention love

a rush and a push and the land that we stand on is ours
your youth may be gone but you~re still a young man
so phone me, phone me, phone me
phone me, phone me, phone me

Eb                  Dm
ooh, i think i~m in love...
