THE BALLAD OF SQUEAKY FROMME (Amy Ray)
--------------------------------------

The whole song is pretty much Am C G D, with some variations, mostly by
taking your middle finger off and on various strings.  ("Random 9's," I
call it.)  I think the intro is something like this:

Am Am(4) C C(9) G G(9) D D(9)E 0-----0-0-0-0-0-|0-----0---0-0-0-|3-----3-3-3-2---|------2-2-0-0-0-|B 1-----1-1-1-1-1-|1-----1---1-1-1-|0-----0-0-0-3---|------3-3-3-3-3-|G 2-----2-2-2-2-2-|0-----0---0-0-0-|0-----0-0-0-2---|------2-2-2-2-2-|D 2-----2-0-0-0-0-|2-----2---2-0-0-|0-----0-0-0-0---|----------0-0-0-|A 0-----0-0-0-0-0-|3-----3---3-3-3-|2-----2-0-0-0---|----------0-0-0-|E ----------------|3-----3---3-3-3-|3-----3-3-3-----|----------------| ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ .
And something close to that goes through the whole song, except the D usually falls more on the downbeat... Am C G D [intro] Am C G D We're scared as hell 'cause Squeaky's out of jail Am C G D I can feel her close behind me like the devil on my heels Am C G D They say she's heading to California or maybe for DC Am C G D But I'm sittin' here down in Georgia arguing with my family Am G C D The contras called a truce, but they broke it in an hour Now someone sittin' in the Tower of Babel is givin' them their power Well they stopped the war in Bethlehem just to let sweet Jesus pass Oh but how much does it really mean if they screw him over behind his back? I can feel her closin' in, and I hope she understands That society and me, now we aren't necessarily hand in hand She's broken all her bonds, got no superficial cause You know she gave up all her chances to live inside the law Now Squeaky, peace on earth - will you tell me what it's worth? From the inside out I'd let you in; you might understand Well now Squeaky, in your mixed-up mind, you may not be so blind From the inside out I'd let you in, you might understand Am C G D That God is in my heart, but the Devil's in our bones Am C G D Am C G D And Squeaky, you are not alone, yeah, you are not alone Am C G6 D(9) Gimme peace on earth, peace on earth, peace on earth, peace on earth Am C G6 D(9) Squeaky, gimme peace on earth, peace on earth, peace on earth Am C G6 D(9) peace on earth, peace on earth, peace on earth, peace on earth Am C G Now Squeaky, gimme peace on earth, and then you tell me what it's worth (n.c.) From the inside out I would let you in, I think that you might understand (n.c.) That a god is in my heart, but the devil, I said the devil's in our bones Am C G And Squeaky, you are not alone - Adam Schneider, schneider@pobox.com
