                ...THE GREAT NATIONS OF EUROPE... by Randy Newman
---------------------------------................

*from 'Bad Love' (1999)*


Intro:

Dm  Am, Bb  F  G7

Verse 1:

C    F     Eb         F/A    F
 The Great Nations of Europe,
    Bb       Bb/D   F
Had gathered on the shore.
F       Bb        Bdim7        F
 They'd conquered what was be-hind them,
    G7              C7
And now they wanted more.

   C    F      Eb            F/A   F
So they looked to the mighty ocean,
    Bb          Bb/D    F
And took to the Western Sea.
    Bb    Bdim7      F            Bb         F
The great Nations of Europe, in the 16th centu-ry.

Chorus 1:

Eb                   Bb         F        Am        Dm
 Hide your wives and daughters, hide the groceries too.
    Bb               C7            F
The great Nations of Europe comin' through.

Interlude:

F  Bb (x2), C7, F

Verse 2:

    F        Eb   D       Am
The Grand Ca-nary Islands,
      D       F          Am
First land to which they came.
     Bb          Bdim7      F
They slaughtered all the ca-naries there,
      G7                C7
Which gave the land its name.

           F       Eb            F/A       F
There were natives there, called Guanches,
Bb        Bb/D   F
 Guanches by the score.
Bb            Bdim7      F
 Bullet's, di-sease, the Portugese;
     Bb                F
They weren't there any-more.

Bridge 1:

            F             Bb                   F
Now they're gone, they're gone, they're really gone.
       Am    F        Eb  G7 C
You've never seen any-one so gone.

        F                Bb                            F
There's pictures in a mu-seum, some lines written in a book.
    Gm        Am     Bb                  C7        F
But you won't find a live one, no matter where you look.

Chorus 2:

Eb                   Bb         F        Am        Dm
 Hide your wives and daughters, hide the groceries too.
    Bb               C7            F
The great Nations of Europe comin' through.

Interlude:

F  Bb (x2), C7, F

Break:

   Dm                Ab           Dm          Ab
Co-lumbus sailed for India; found Salvidor in-stead.
   Dm                    Am           G7                 C7
He shook hands with some Indians, and soon they all were dead.

     F          C/G         F                  Bb     A7      Dm
They got TB and Typhoid and athletes foot, dip-theria and the flu;
       Eb        Bb             F
'Scuse me; great nations comin' through.

Interlude:

Bb, F (x2)

Break 2:

    Eb  G7           C          Eb     G7        C
Bal-boa found the Pa-cific, and on the trail one day,
   Eb       G7       C             G7               C7
He met some friendly Indians, whom he was told were gay. So...

   F        C/G    F                   Bb      A7           Dm
He had them torn a-part by dogs, on re-ligious grounds they say;
    F     Bb         Bdim7   F        G7            C7
The great Nations of Europe, were quite holy in their way.

Bridge 2:

            F             Bb                   F
Now they're gone, they're gone, they're really gone.
       Am    F        Eb  G7 C
You've never seen any-one so gone.

     F                 Bb           F              Bb
Some bones hidden in a canyon, some paintings in a cave.
        Gm     Am        Bb                         C7      F
There's no use tryin' to save them; there's nothin' left to save.

Chorus 3:

Eb                   Bb         F         Am      Dm 
 Hide your wives and daughters, hide your sons as well;
         Bb               C7                    F
With the great Nations of Europe, you never can tell.

Interlude:

F  Bb (x2), C7, F

Verse 3:

C      F       Eb    F/A       F
 Where you and I are standing,
       Bb       Bb/D  F
At the end of a centu-ry;
Bb             Bdim7     F            G7         C7
 Europe's have sprung up everywhere, as even I can see.

    F        C/G    F             Bb    A7   Dm
But there on the ho-rizon, is the possi-bili-ty,
          C#       Ab     Eb            Dm       Am      C
That some bug from out of Africa, might come for you and me.

   F        C/G        F                 Bb     A7      Dm
De-stroying everything in its path, from sea to shining sea.
         Bb               F              C7         F
Like the great Nations of Europe, in the 16th centu-ry.
