THE BALLAD OF SQUEAKY FROMME (Amy Ray)
--------------------------------------

The whole song is pretty much Am C G D, with some variations, mostly by
taking your middle finger off and on various strings.  ("Random 9's," I
call it.)  I think the intro is something like this:

  Am      Am(4)    C           C(9) G      G(9) D              D(9)
E 0-----0-0-0-0-0-|0-----0---0-0-0-|3-----3-3-3-2---|------2-2-0-0-0-|
B 1-----1-1-1-1-1-|1-----1---1-1-1-|0-----0-0-0-3---|------3-3-3-3-3-|
G 2-----2-2-2-2-2-|0-----0---0-0-0-|0-----0-0-0-2---|------2-2-2-2-2-|
D 2-----2-0-0-0-0-|2-----2---2-0-0-|0-----0-0-0-0---|----------0-0-0-|
A 0-----0-0-0-0-0-|3-----3---3-3-3-|2-----2-0-0-0---|----------0-0-0-|
E ----------------|3-----3---3-3-3-|3-----3-3-3-----|----------------|
  ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ .  ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ .  ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ .  ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ .   

And something close to that goes through the whole song, except the
D usually falls more on the downbeat...


Am  C  G  D
[intro]

Am                    C       G                    D
  We're scared as hell 'cause Squeaky's out of jail
      Am                C               G             D
I can feel her close behind me like the devil on my heels
     Am                    C            G           D
They say she's heading to California or maybe for DC
        Am                     C      G               D
But I'm sittin' here down in Georgia arguing with my family
Am   G    C    D

The contras called a truce, but they broke it in an hour
Now someone sittin' in the Tower of Babel is givin' them their power
Well they stopped the war in Bethlehem just to let sweet Jesus pass
Oh but how much does it really mean if they screw him over behind his back?

I can feel her closin' in, and I hope she understands
That society and me, now we aren't necessarily hand in hand
She's broken all her bonds, got no superficial cause
You know she gave up all her chances to live inside the law

Now Squeaky, peace on earth - will you tell me what it's worth?
Well now Squeaky, in your mixed-up mind, you may not be so blind

     Am            C             G               D
That God is in my heart, but the Devil's in our bones
    Am      C  G  D             Am   C       G             D
And Squeaky,      you are not alone,   yeah, you are not alone
       Am             C               G6              D(9)
Gimme peace on earth, peace on earth, peace on earth, peace on earth
Am             C               G6              D(9)
Squeaky, gimme peace on earth, peace on earth, peace on earth
Am              C               G6              D(9)
peace on earth, peace on earth, peace on earth, peace on earth
    Am             C                            G
Now Squeaky, gimme peace on earth, and then you tell me what it's worth
(n.c.)
(n.c.)
That a god is in my heart, but the devil, I said the devil's in our bones
    Am      C    G
And Squeaky,       you are not alone
