INTRO:  RIFF 1 -- 4x's

VERSE:

       The fields of Eden • (RIFF 2)

       Are full of trash  • (RIFF 2)

And if we beg and we borrow and steal • (RIFF 2)

       We'll never get it back • (RIFF 2)

       People are hungry • (RIFF 2)

       They crowd around • (RIFF 2)

       Between a rock

       And a hard place

VERSE:

       This talk of freedom

       And human rights

Means bullying and private wars

And chucking all the dust into our eyes

Who are caught in the crossfire

With nothing to lose but their shirts

       And a hard place

       Between a rock

       And a hard place

                       •(RIFF 1)

       You'd better stop

                   •(RIFF 1)

       Put on a kind face

                     •(RIFF 1)

       Between a rock

                 •(RIFF 1)

       And a hard place

BREAK:

      G

       We're in the same boat

      D

       On the same sea

      F

And we're sailing south

      C

       On the same breeze

      G

Guiding dream churches

      D

       With silver spires

      F

       And our rogue children      

      C                             (RIFF 1) -- 6x's    

Are playing loaded dice
