Acorde de Leaving Beirut - Roger Waters

Letra de Leaving Beirut

C		     E		    E7

Are these the people that we should bomb

F G

Are we so sure they mean us harm

C E E7

Is this our pleasure, punishment or crime

F G

Is this a mountain that we really want to climb

C E E7

The road is hard, hard and long

F

Put down that two by four

G C

This man would never turn you from his door

E E7

Oh George! Oh George!

F G C

That Texas education must have fucked you up when you were very small



C E E7

When I was 17 my mother, bless her heart,

F G C

Fulfilled my summer dream she handed me the keys to the car

E E7

We motored down to Paris, fuelled with Dexedrine and booze

F G

Got bust in Antibes by the cops and fleeced in Naples by the wops

C E E7

But everyone was kind to us, we were the English dudes

F

Our dads had helped them win the war

G C

When we all knew what we were fighting for

E E7

But now an Englishman abroad is just a US stooge

F G

The bulldog is a poodle snapping round the scoundrel's last refuge



C

Is gentleness too much for us

E E7 F

Should gentleness be filed along with empathy

G

We feel for someone else's child

C E E7

Every time a smart bomb does its sums and gets it wrong

F G

Someone else's child dies and equities in defence rise

C E E7

America, America, please hear us when we call

F

You got hip-hop, be-bop, hustle and bustle

G

You got Atticus Finch, you got Jane Russell

C

You got freedom of speech, you got great beaches,

E E7

Wildernesses and malls

F

Don't let the might, the Christian right,

G C

Fuck it all up for you and the rest of the world





C E E7

Not in my name, Tony, you great war leader you

F G

Terror is still terror, whosoever gets to frame the rules

C E E7

History's not written by the vanquished or the damned

F G

Now we are Genghis Khan, Lucretia Borghia, Son of Sam

C E E7

In 1961 they took this child into their home

F G

I wonder what became of them in the cauldron that was Lebanon

C E E7

If I could find them now, could I make amends?

F G C

How does the story end?
