   Am                                                                        Em

1. I can see you in the morning when you go to school,

      G                                                                                      Dm

    don't forget our books, you know, you've got to learn the golden rule.

       Am                                                                               Em

    Teacher tells you, stop your play and go on with your work,

            G

    and be like Johnnie Toogood.

                        F                                         Am                 - D 

    Don't you know he never shrinks, he's coming along.

 

+  Am - G      - Am - D       - Am - G

 

     Am                                                           Em

2. After school is over you're playing in the dark,

       G                                            Dm

    don't be out too late, don't let it get too dark !

             Am                                                               Em

    They tell you not to hang around and learn what life's about

               G                                                    Dm

    and grow up just like them, won't let you work it out.

                       C         E

    And you're full of doubt.

 

+  Am ~ ~ Am  ~ ~  Am ~ ~           +  Am - G - F (4x)     

 

+  Am - G - F (4x)         +  Am - G - F (4x)

 

       E                        Am

+  Don't do this and don't do that !

        Am                                     Dm

    What are they tryin' to do ? Make a good boy of you ?

     C                       Dm       E

    Do they know where it's at?

                E                    Am

    Don't criticise they're old and wise !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

    Dm

    Do as they tell you to, don't want the devil to,

       C                   Dm          E     ~ ~

    Come and pull out your eyes !

 

      Am                                          Em

3. Maybe I'm mistaken expecting you to fight,

            G                                                     D

    or maybe I'm just crazy, I don't know wrong from right.

             Am                                    Em

    But while I'm still living I've just got this to say,

           G                                               D

    it's always up to you, if you want to be that,

                    F                         C     Dm    E

    Want to see that, want to see it that way.

      - - - - - - - - - -    Am

    You're coming along.
