A wonderful world of technology

Napalm, hydrogen bomb, biological warfare

BRIDGE:
        Em                A5      Em             G G/f# Em

NOTE: Pick notes on the bridge, strum all other times.  The riffs are 
approximate, to give the general idea.  The bridge has been altered a bit 
to make it sound better for guitar.  This is the way the song goes in my 
mind.
(from Muswell Hilbillies, 1971)
