Guitar chords with lyrics

Verse:

D  F#    Bm
Far across the ocean
D   F#   Bm
In the land of look and see
D   F#    Bm    E
There once was a time
   A     D
For you and me

D     F#     Bm
Where the winds blow sweetly
D    F#      Bm
And the easy seas flow still
D    F#     Bm        E
And where the barefoot dream of life
    A          D
Can laugh and cry its fill

D  F#      Bm
Where slot machine confusions
D  F#     Bm
And the plastic universe
D  F#    Bm      E
Are objects of amusement
    A           D
In the fiction of their curse

D  F#      Bm
And where the crazy whiteman
D  F#    Bm
And his teargas happiness
D  F#      Bm         E
Lies dead and long since buried
    A          D
By his own fantastic mess

Chorus:

D  F#    Bm
For I hate the whiteman
D  F#    Bm
And his plastic excuse
D  F#    Bm        G
For I hate the whiteman
    F#    Bm    F#
And the man who turned him loose...

Verse:

D   F#      Bm
And the reins of coloured thunder
D  F#     Bm
Of the stallion of the dawn
D  F#     Bm       E
Ride the coalfire morning
    A            D
On the beach where all is born

D   F#      Bm
Where the emperor of meaning
D  F#    Bm
Is burning up his forts
D  F#       Bm       E
And sits to warm his toes around
    A              D
A fire made up of useless thoughts

D    F#      Bm
And when the children tempt him
D  F#       Bm
With the riddles of their trance
D   F#       Bm         E
He flings the flames of solstice
     A            D
Casting laughs into their dance

D  F#      Bm
And while a crazy whiteman
D  F#     Bm
In the desert of his bones
D  F#       Bm        E
Lies as bleached as the paradise
     A         D
He likes to think he owns

Chorus:

D  F#    Bm
And I hate the whiteman
D  F#     Bm
In his evergreen excuse
D  F#    Bm      G
Oh I hate the whiteman
    F#    Bm     F#
And the man who turned him loose...

Verse:

D  F#      Bm
And far across the reaches
D  F#     Bm
Of the drifting yellow sands
D   F#      Bm      E
The living carpet wilderness
     A        D
Forever joins its hands

D  F#      Bm
With heaven hell's attainment
D  F#      Bm
In a surging crest of fire
D   F#      Bm        E
Where more than all is thrown upon
   A          D
The ever lasting pyre

D   F#        Bm
And through the countless canticles
D  F#      Bm
Of Jason's charcoal fleece
D   F#       Bm        E
Are sung the songs of nothing
    A           D
In the timeless masterpiece

D   F#          Bm
And there stood in the middle

Guess who?
D   F#       Bm
It's the everlasting burst
D   F#        Bm       E
Built by god's very own whiteman
   A           D
As he tries to rule the dust

Chorus:

D  F#    Bm
And I hate the whiteman
D   F#      Bm
In his doctrinaire abuse
D  F#    Bm    G
Oh I hate the whiteman
    F#   Bm      F#
And the man who turned you all loose...

Verse:

D  F#      Bm
And the bowels of his city
D   F#       Bm
Have been locked into a safe
D   F#        Bm          E
Where the spew stains on the sidewalks
   A            D
Are defenders of his faith

D   F#       Bm
While back inside his kitchen
D     F#         Bm
The bowler hatted, long haired saint
D   F#       Bm     E
Cleans with soap and water
        A         D
But it's really just white paint

D    F#       Bm
While his golden headed scandal sheets
D    F#     Bm
Present their daily bite
D    F#       Bm        E
To give their righteous news-bleeders
     A         D
Drugs to keep them white

D   F#      Bm
While outside in the whitewash
D    F#     Bm
Where the guns are always, always right
D   F#      Bm        E
A shooting star has summoned
     A          D
Its dark angel from his night

Chorus:

D  F#    Bm
And I hate the whiteman
D  F#     Bm
And his evergreen excuse
D  F#    Bm     G
Oh I hate the whiteman
    F#       Bm    G
And the man who turned you all loose
    F#       Bm   G
And the man who turned him loose...
