Hey this is my first tab. I'm a big fan of Jackson Browne and I think I got this about 
Corrections are welcome. Make sure you capo the third fret or it just sounds balls. All 
are relative to the capo.


CAPO III


Intro: Em, D x4


Verse:

         Em          D            Em        D
Ive been waiting for something to happen

      Em          D            Em        D
For a week or a month or a year

         Em            D            Em        D
With the blood in the ink of the headlines

         Em          D            Em        D
And the sound of the crowd in my ear

          Em          D            Em        D
You might ask what it takes to remember

         Em               D            Em        D
When you know that you've seen it before

        Em          D          Em        D
Where a government lies to a people

      Em          D            Em
And a country is drifting to war


Pre-chorus:

             C             Em
And theres a shadow on the faces

       C                Em
Of the men who send the guns

       C                       G
To the wars that are fought in places

            D                 B
Where their business interest runs


Verse 2 (same arrangement as Verse 1):

On the radio talk shows and the t.v.
You hear one thing again and again
How the u.s.a. stands for freedom
And we come to the aid of a friend
But who are the ones that we call our friends--
These governments killing their own?
Or the people who finally cant take any more


Chorus:

         C                       B
And they pick up a gun or a brick or a stone
          Em     D            Em    D
There are lives in the balance
          Em     D            Em    D
There are people under fire
          Em       D            Em    D
There are children at the cannons
             C                   B
And there is blood on the wire


Interlude


Pre-chorus:

         C             Em
Theres a shadow on the faces
       C               Em
Of the men who fan the flames
       C                         G
Of the wars that are fought in places
              D            B
Where we cant even say the names


Verse 3:

They sell us the president the same way
They sell us our clothes and our cars
They sell us every thing from youth to religion
The same time they sell us our wars
I want to know who the men in the shadows are
I want to hear somebody asking them why
They can be counted on to tell us who our enemies are


Chorus:

     C                  B
But theyre never the ones to fight or to die
              Em     D             Em    D
And there are lives in the balance
          Em     D             Em    D
There are people under fire
           Em     D               Em    D
There are children at the cannons
             C                  B
And there is blood on the wire


Outro:

Em, D x3, end with Em.
