[Am] You [G]tell us that we're [Am]wrong[G]    
[Am] You tell us [G]not to sing our [Am]songs[G]    
[Am] Nothing we can [G]say will make you [Am]see    [Em]    
[Am] You've got a heart of [Em]stone, you can never [Am]feel   [Em]    
You say, "[Am]Oh, I'm not a[G]fraid, it can't happen to [Am]me    [Em]    
[Am] I believe that [Em]life is a [Am]good thing (?)[Em]    
Oh [Am]no, you're out of your [G]mind, it won't happen to [Am]me    [Em]    
[F]"Cause I've carried my w[G]eight and I've been a s[F]trong man" [G]    

[Am]Oh, I listen to the [G]man in the liquor [Am]store [G]    
[Am] Anybody want a d[G]rink before the w[Am]ar? [G]    

[Am]    [G]    [Am]    
[Am] Your [G]parents paid you [Am]through [G]    
[Am] You've got a nice big [G]car, nothing bothers [Am]you    [G]    
[Am] Somebody cut out your [G]eyes, you refuse to [Am]see    [Em]    
[Am]Ah, somebody cut out your [Em]heart, you refuse to [Am]feel [Em]    

[F] And you live in a [G]shell,[F] you create your own [G]hell
[F] You live in the [G]past and talk about [Am]war    [G]    
[F] And you dig your own [G]grave, yeah
[F] When it's a life you could [G]save
[F] So stop with the [G]past, it's not gonna [Am]happen [G]    

And you [Am]cry but you'll never [G]fall
No no [Am]no, you're building a [G]wall
[Am] Got to break it [G]down, start [Am]again [Em]    
[Am] You say, "oh [Em]no, it won't happen to [Am]us"    [Em]    
[Am] We've lived our [Em]lives basically in [Am]goodness" [Em]    

[F] So stop talking of [G]war 'cause you know we've [F]heard it all [G]before
[F] Why don't you go out [G]there and do something [Am]useful?[G]    
[Am]Oh, I've listened to the [G]man in the liquor [Am]store [G]    
[Am] Anybody want a [G]drink before the [Am]war? [G]    
[Am] Anybody want a [G]drink before the [Am]war    [Em]    
[Am]Ah, anybody want a [Em]drink before the [Am]war? [Em]    
[Am]Yeah, [G]yeah... [Am]    [G]    

[Am]    [G]    [Am]    

You tell us that we're wrong
You tell us not to sing our songs
Nothing we can say will make you see
You've got a heart of stone, you can never feel
You say, "Oh, I'm not afraid, it can't happen to me
I believe that life is a good thing (?)
Oh no, you're out of your mind, it won't happen to me
"Cause I've carried my weight and I've been a strong man"

Oh, I listen to the man in the liquor store
Anybody want a drink before the war?


Your parents paid you through
You've got a nice big car, nothing bothers you
Somebody cut out your eyes, you refuse to see
Ah, somebody cut out your heart, you refuse to feel

And you live in a shell, you create your own hell
You live in the past and talk about war
And you dig your own grave, yeah
When it's a life you could save
So stop with the past, it's not gonna happen

And you cry but you'll never fall
No no no, you're building a wall
Got to break it down, start again
You say, "oh no, it won't happen to us"
We've lived our lives basically in goodness"

So stop talking of war 'cause you know we've heard it all before
Why don't you go out there and do something useful?
Oh, I've listened to the man in the liquor store
Anybody want a drink before the war?
Anybody want a drink before the war
Ah, anybody want a drink before the war?
Yeah, yeah...
