The Jam - Wasteland

Intro:

G  F#m  G  F#m

G  F#m  G  F#m

G  F#m  Em  A



G A DMeet me on the wastelands - later this day,
G A DWe'll sit and talk and hold hands maybe,
G A DFor there's not much else to do
G F#m G Em AIn this drab and colourless place.
G A DWe'll sit amongst the rubber tyres,
G A DAmongst the discarded bric-a-brac - people have no use for,
G A D Em AAmongst the smouldering embers of yesterday.
F# G AAnd when or if the sun shines,
G F#mLighting our once beautiful features,
C# DWe'll smile, but only for seconds,
G AFor to be caught smiling's to acknowledge life,
G F#mA brave but useless show of compassion,
C# D E AAnd that is forbidden in this drab and colourless world.
G A DMeet me on the wastelands - the ones behind,
G A DThe old houses - the ones left standing pre-war -
G A DThe ones overshadowed by those monolith monstrosities -
G F#m G E ACouncils call homes
G A DAnd there amongst the shit - the dirty linen,
G A DThe holy Coca-Cola tins - the punctured footballs,
G A Dthe ragged dolls - the rusting bicycles,
G F#mWe'll sit and probably hold hands.
G F#mAnd watch the rain fall - watch it, watch it -
G F#mTumble and fall - tumble and falling -
G F#mLike our lives - like our lives -
Em AJust like our lives.
G A DWe'll talk about the old days,
G A DWhen the wasteland was release, when we could play,
G A DAnd think - without feeling guilty - meet me later
G F#mBut we'll have to hold hands.
G F#m Tumble and fall - tumble and falling -
G F#mLike our lives - like our lives -
Em A A7 DExactly like our lives.
