The Big Ones Get Away Ukulele

(ver. 1)
Buffy Sainte-Marie
A great song and it's so easy to play along with.  

C Am F G and listen for the changes

C							Am
Hey, Baby I just got back from town where the bribes are paid 
                               F				G
Honey, they turned my offer down they say the deal's already made 
                         C	       		   Am
So now I gotta stand and watch while it all comes down 
                         F                                           G
and the buzzards and the hawks and the judges and the mob circle around 

Now if I were the queen of all the world I would go in chains just to see you free 

of the ropes that bind you and the role you play 

and the pride that hooks you while the big ones get away 

Love junkies wanna change the world: it quickly stays the same 

Money junkies hire all the smart ones Power junkies run the game 

One step at a time Polarity Hill

If the bad guys don't get you Baby then the good guys will 

With angels on the take and the gangsters in the yard 

Hey don't the wars come easy Hey don't the peace come hard 

Now if I had a way to reach the sky 

I'd grab that crescent moon wield it like a knife save you from the lies 

And the game that hooks you, while the big ones get away 

Hum (Ohhh oh oh oh nd repeat)  play C Am F G into fade out
