Neil Young
[Intro] 
F       Dm F   Dm F            F       Dm F   Dm F

[Verse]
    F 
You never know what the future holds 
                          Dm F      Dm F
in the shallow soil of Monsanto, Monsanto 
    F  
The moon is full and the seeds are sown 
                              Dm F      Dm F
while the farmer toils for Monsanto, Monsanto 
     Bb                       Am             C    F 
When these seeds rise they're ready for the pesticide 
     Bb               Am         C      F          Dm F      Dm F 
And Roundup comes and brings the poison tide of Monsanto, Monsanto

[Verse]
     F                                                 Dm F      Dm F
The farmer knows he's got to grow what he can sell, Monsanto, Monsanto
      F 
So he signs a deal for GMOs 
                             Dm F      Dm F
that makes life hell with Monsanto, Monsanto 
Bb            Am       C        F 
Every year he buys the patented seeds 
Bb                   Am            C       F        Dm F 
Poison-ready they're what the corporation needs, Monsanto 

[Interlude] 
F         Dm F   Dm F          F         Dm F   Dm F

[Verse]
F  
When you shop for your daily bread 
                        Dm F    Dm F
and walk the aisles of Safeway, Safeway 
F
Find the package to catch your eye 
                        Dm F        Dm F
that makes you smile at Safeway, at Safeway 
Bb                     Am           C              F 
Choose a picture of an old red barn on a field of green 
         Bb  
With the farmer and his wife 
             Am     C         F       Dm F        Dm F 
and children to complete the scene at Safeway, at Safeway 


[Verse]
F            
Dreams of the past come flooding back 
                          Dm F       Dm F
to the farmer's mind, his mother and father 
F 
Family seeds they used to save 
                            Dm F      Dm F
were gifts from God, not Monsanto, Monsanto 
Bb                    Am           C        F 
Their own child grows ill near the poisoned crops 
      Bb                 Am            C             F 
While they work on, they can't find an easy way to stop, 
   Dm F     Dm F 
Monsanto, Monsanto 

[Solo over] 
E    E6 E      E6 E          E    E6 E      E6 E

[Verse]
E                                                     E6 E      E6 E 
Don't care now what the Bible said so long ago not Monsanto, Monsanto
     E 
Give us this day our daily bread 
                          E6 E      E6 E
and let us not go with Monsanto, Monsanto 
    A                 G#m      B         E 
The seeds of life are not what they once were 
       A                    G#m      B  E 
Mother Nature and God don't own them anymore 

[Jam over] 
E    E6 E      E6 E          E    E6 E      E6 E
