Good Morning Britain

Intro  E x 4

Verse

Jocks got a vote in parochia 
Ten long years and he's still got her
              
Paying tax and doing stir
             
Worry about it later
        
And the wind blows hard and the wind blows cold
But it blows us good so we've been told
                    
Music's food 'till the art biz folds
               
Let them all eat culture

Chorus
                      
The past is steeped in shame
                  
But tomorrows fair game
                          
For a life that's fit for living
             
 Good morning Britain

Verse

Twenty years and a loaded gun 
Funerals fear and the war ain't won
             
Paddy's still a figure of fun
                  
It lightens up the danger
             
And a corporal sneers at a Catholic boy
And he eyes his gun like a rich man's toy
	                
He's killing more than Celtic joy
             
Death is not a stranger

Taffy's time's gonna come one day
It's loud sweet voice but it won't give way
              
A house is not a holiday
                     
Your son's are leaving home Neil
                                     
In the hills and the valleys and far away
You can hear the song of democracy
           
The echo of eternity
                       
With a rak - a - rak - a feel

Chorus
                      
The past is steeped in shame
                  
But tomorrows fair game
                          
For a life that's fit for living

Verse
        
From the Tyne to where the Thames does flow
   
My English brothers and sisters know
     
It's not case of where you go
     
It's race and creed and colour
         
From the police cell to the deep dark grave
       
On the underground's just a stop away
      
Don't be too black, don't be too gay
                  
Just get a little duller
    
But in this green and pleasant land
         
Where I make my home I'll make my stand

Make it cool just to be a man
  
A uniform's a traitor

Love is international
     
And if you stand or if you fall
     
Just let them know you gave your all
               
Worry about it later

Chorus
                     
The past is steeped in shame
                  
But tomorrows fair game
                       
For a life that's fit for living
             
 Good morning Britain
                     
The past is steeped in shame
                  
But tomorrows fair game
                       
For a life that's fit for living
             
 Good morning Britain



From 1990, this is one of my favorite songs. It took me ages to figure out.
enjoy. Watch out for the key change at the start of the 2nd verse. Taff
