"From Red to Blue"
 by
 Billy Bragg
(from the album "William Bloke")

Notes: I suggest playing it using barre chords with a rhythm similar to that
used in the first bar of the intro. On the CD it is actually about a quarter
tone lower than shown below (who cares right?). The breaks aren't quite
perfect but will sound effective enough.

F Am Gm Bb Another day dawns grey, It's enough to make my spit F Am Bb Gm Still we go on our way, just putting up with it C Dm C Bb Gm And when I try to make my feelings known to you F Am Bb Gm F It sounds like you have changed from red to blue F Am Gm Bb Well you're a father now, you see things in different ways F Am Bb Gm For every parent will, gain perspective on their wilder days C Dm C Bb Gm But that alone does not explain, the change I see in you F Am Bb Gm F The way you've drifted off from red to blue Dm C Bb F Sometimes I think to myself Bb F Bb F Should I vote red for my class or green for our children? Dm C Bb F But whatever choice I make Bb
I will not foresake e ----------------| B --8---6---5---3-| G --9---7---5---3-|

F Am Gm Bb So you bought it all, the best your money could buy F Am Bb Gm And I watched you sell your soul for their bright shining lie C Dm C Bb Gm Where are the principles of the friend I thought I knew? F Am Bb Gm F I guess you let them fade from red to blue F Am Gm Bb I hate the compromises that life forces us to make F Am Bb Gm We must all bend a little if we are not to break C Dm C Bb Gm But the ideals you opted out of, I still hold them to be true F Am Bb Gm F (hold) I guess they weren't so firmly held by you. +----------------------------------+
