Kill The Messenger

EThe messenger came with bad news from the front
A ESaid the soldiers are starving and their swords are all blunt
B A EThey need a show of support or some futile sign
F#m G#m A B That's what they told me to tell you, not even the words are mine
EThe messenger came with bad news from the war
A ESaid the fine young men forgot who they were fighting for
B A EThey don't wanna be stars on your tv screen
F#m G#m A EThat's the general feeling, please don't blame it on me
A EAnd the people said one and one is two
A EThere's nothing left for us to do
F#m G#m But since we can blame it all on you
A E A E A....... E We will kill the messenger, kill the messenger, kil......l the messenger
EThe messenger came with bad news from the town
A ESaid the phone-lines are on strike and the doormen are all down
B A EThey've turned your den of thieves into a temple
F#m G#m A EThey need someone of stature to set them an example
A EAnd the people said two and two is four
A EDont tell us anymore
F#m G#m We all know the score
A E A E A....... E We must kill the messenger, kill the messenger, kil....l the messenger
ESomeone brought the news to the messenger's folks
A EHe said your son's been killed two times, they said is that a joke
B A EHe said he was he victim of ignorant minds
F#m G#m A EI hate to bring such bad news, please don't think me unkind
A EAnd the family said one and one is two
A EThere's nothing left for us to do
F#m G#m But since you're here and we can blame it on you
A E A E A........ EWe will kill the messenger kill the messenger, kil....l the messenger
So if you want to send a message... Song beat is the old rock a billy sound (bom bom badada bom, bom bom badada bom) something like Elvis's start to Teddy Bear or Dont be Cruel. I don't know how else to describe it. except maybe play the E, lift open, hammer down E repeat to get the beat.
