       Welcome To The Occupation
       =========================


       The intro goes like this:

       E--0--         X=Mute this string
       B--0--
       G--0--         I don't know the name of this chord
       D--2--         but i'm sure it has one.  anybody?
       A--0--
       E--X--         Anyways, the intro is this chord, then
                      a Dsus2:   E--0--
         |                       B--3--
         |                       G--2--
         |-------------->        D--0--
                                 A--0--

       Then the, verses go:


        A chord diagramE minorEm       A chord diagramG+G      A chord diagramE minorEm     A chord diagramDsus2Dsus2 (either strum or pick the 1,2 & 3
       Hang ..strings)
       Hang ..
       Listen ..
       Listen ..

           note- When going from the A chord diagramE minorEm to the A chord diagramG+G and back again,
                 walk the bass notes up (eg. A chord diagramA augmentedA
                        and back down too    E--0--2--3--
                                                A chord diagramE minorEm    A chord diagramG+G

       [the "Man educated" part is the 1st chord of the intro (maybe A chord diagramAm7Am7)
       [again, followed by this chord, which may not be correct
       [and, again, I don't know what it's called:

          E--0--       It's sort of like the shape of an augmented
          B--3--       chord.
          G--4--
          D--4--
          A--5--
          E--X--

            - at this point, there is an instrumental break where
              you play:

           A chord diagramFmaj7Fmaj7    A chord diagramE minorEm    (x2) (I think)

             then, coming out of this and into the final verse,
             play (rather aggressively):

            A chord diagramG+G     A chord diagramD MajorD

       (back to this again)

        the chords A chord diagramDsus2Dsus2 and Dsus2/C just to make it interesting.  I probably
