Transpose:
A beautifully haunting little ballad by EC&A.  One of my faves from Goodbye Cruel 
World, and it was pretty easy to figure out.  Song is in 3/4 time and the key of D Major.

Intro:

Verse 1:
D Out of the aeroplane stepped Chamberlain with a condemned man's stare
D D But we all cheered wildly, a photograph was taken,
D7 Gas he waved a piece of paper in the air
Em Em/D# Em7 A Now the Disco Machine lives in Munich and we are all friends
A7 AAnd I slip on my Italian dancing shoes as the evening descends
Chorus:
D Dmaj7 D6 D7/A And the bells take their toll once again in victory chime
G Bm Em AAnd we can thank God that we've finally got
D peace in our time
Verse 2:
D There's a man going round taking names no
matter who you claim to be
D As innocent as babies, a mad dog with rabies,
D7 G you're still a part of some conspiracy
Em Em/D# Meanwhile there's a light over the ocean
Em7 A burning brighter than the sun
A7And a man sits alone in a bar and says "Oh God,
Awhat have we done?"

Em7 A International Propaganda Star Wars
A7There's already one spaceman in the White
A House, what do you want another one for?
