Intro:  D - Em - D - C - D - A - D - C
        D - Em - D - C - D - A - A


Verse 1:

Em                  Bm
All is quiet on the Western front
        C             A
There appears to be a lull
   Em                             D
Oh John and Jane Doe are sleeping well tonight
     C
With little thoughts inside their skulls
Em             Bm
Salome she's undressed to the nines
    C                     A
And although a few pounds fatter
        Em                    D
She got Pavlov's bells on her ankles and wrists
    C
She coming at you with her platter



Chorus 1:

        D              Em
They're building a new gallows
         C              G  G/F#  G/E
When you show up on the streets
           D             Em
Oh they're polishing the electric chair
      C                    D
Gonna give you a front row seat
        D                 Em
Heard a sneer outside the garden
    C         A
Salutation so well
 Em              D                  C
"Welcome all you suckers to Struggleville"



Repeat Intro:  D - Em - D - C - D - A - D - C
               D - Em - D - C - D - A - A



Verse 2:

Em                  Bm
I stole down to the waterfront
   C                 A
To escape the desert heat
   Em                      D
Oh what on earth you gotta do around here
C
 To try and get yourself a drink
      Em               Bm
Heard John the Baptist preaching
        C                 A
He said "Make way for the King
           Em              D
But if you wanna recognize him
          C
You gotta tell me all your sins"



Chorus 2:

        D              Em
They're building a new gallows
         C              G   G/F#  G/E
When you show up on the streets
           D             Em
Oh they're polishing the electric chair
      C                    D
Gonna give you a front row seat
        D                 Em
Heard a sneer outside the garden
    C         A
Salutation so well
 Em              D                  C
"Welcome all you suckers to Struggleville"
 Em              D                  C
"Welcome all you suckers to Struggleville"

Verse 3:

Em                    Bm
I've been trying to negotiate peace
C               A
With my own existence
        Em                 D
She got stockpiles full of weaponry
             C
She breakin' every cease-fire agreement
       Em             Bm
Oh the whole thing is full of decay
   C                    A
As sure as I'm made of dust
       Em            D                 C
Oh but in the rust I hear the beast is calling



Chorus 3:

        D              Em
They're building a new gallows
         C              G   G/F#  G/E
When you show up on the streets
           D             Em
Oh they're polishing the electric chair
      C                    D
Gonna give you a front row seat
        D                 Em
Heard a sneer outside the garden
    C         A
Salutation so well
 Em             D             C
"Final Stop! No points beyond Struggleville
Em              D                  C
Welcome all you suckers to Struggleville"
