sisters spare me

Capo 4
C, G, Bm, D
C, G, C, D

past the rollin hills of Massachusetts
white birch livin mongst the pines
past the toys cars all in rows
and the neon mobile signs

there’s a man who fights for justice
a mermaid strayed from the sea
and they sing of revolution and dreams

ch:
so sisters spare me all your sad songs
had enough of the blues for today
give me reason to smile through the grey
cuz i know somewhere they’re sellin rainbows
cheap as they sell democracy
heard its half off human rights this week

Far beyond Tecumseh Valley
and the rocky mountains high
past the holy himalayas
and the hotels of dubai

there’s a party in the city
and the liquor's flowin cheap
and everyones singin the same songs that they were last week

somewhere down cross the border
another hero reached her peak
she was silenced for singin a different song last week
somewhere deep inside the jungle
another tree trunk hits the ground
some people hold a seashell to their ear
but never hear a sound

ch

past the rollin hills of new england
white birch livin mongst the pines
past the toy cars all in rows
and the pray for jesus signs

there’s a man who fights for justice
a mermaid strayed from the sea
and if you listen you can hear them sing
