Levellers – The Beach chords

Lyrics by Jez Cunningham (confirmed to be correct by Jez personnally!). the chords are 
own effort though, and comments, corrections or sugestions welcome.
(Chords with an * denote a few twiddles with the chords for added effect: lifting of 
fingers to get chord variations etc..play with it!)

Capo 2

Am EmMillions of mega-tons, the power of a thousand suns
Am EmFallout sky for years to come, a pyroclastic grave.
Am EmWe beached the boat when it ran dry, we pleaded with each other, why?
Am EmAnd in our hearts we wished we’d died before we climbed aboard
Am EmWell I know it is a weak defence, a lifetime of indifference
Am EmPaid the tax and stalled the rent, I didn’t rock the boat.
Am EmI Ignored the pilgrim suicides, their human bombs a rising tide
Am EmWith sanctions failed and trident fired they finally came for me
Bm Em Bm EmWhispered tales of creed and flag, nowhere to ship home the body bags
C G D*Go pay the ferryman and leave their tags rusting on the shore
Am CI’m on the run my MP3 downloads global catastrophe
G AmLike strangelove’s darkest fantasy, warheads filled the sky
CNow a refugee on a Russian sub, a deal struck with little Odessan thugs
G Am*How right they were to call us mugs as they waved us out to sea.
(the rest follows the same chords) After 30 days of poisoned flood, the engines cracked the diesels mud Biblical tide of sweat and blood we ran the boat aground And fighting with each other, why? regretting more we’d never trie in our hearts we’d already died before we hit the beach Whispered tales….
