12 26 Ukulele

(ver. 1)
Kimya Dawson
G                    F
One of her babies is rotting in the sun
C                           F
And the other one was found drowned in the ocean
G                            F
Her mom and dad are in their van crushed and bloated
C                                   F
And her husband was thrown from his fishing boat
G                              F
So please give me a break from all your complaining
C                                      F                             
About who was mean to you and how your stepdad is a pain
G                        F
- I care, I swear, but I just can't take it, not today
C                         F
All i can think about are tsunamis and earthquakes

G                F             C
Everything she's ever known is gone, gone, gone
G              F             C
Everyone she's ever loved is gone, gone, gone
G               F
The only reason she's alive is
C             F              G       F     C
She grabbed a palm frond and held on
G          F     C
And held on

(Same chord structure throughout)
You can call me crazy but it seems to me we could
Have sent more than we spend in one day killing iraqis
To help the hundreds of thousands
Who are injured and diseased
And hungry and homeless and without families
I'm appalled by our government's initial reaction
And the fact that they asked for a verbal retraction
They're just covering their assets
Well, they thank their greedy god for wiping out the lower class

We'd have 12/26 tattoed across our foreheads
If something this atrocious happened on our coast instead
Well, a tragedy's a tragedy no matter where it happens
Close your eyes really tight and imagine
That everything you've ever known is gone
And everything you've ever loved is gone
And the only reason you're alive is you were lucky
And you were strong enough to hold on
While you watched your family die
While you watched your family die
While you watched your family die
While you watched your family die
