[Riff]: e---------0-3------3331---110---00------------------------------------ B-1------1------------------------3---331---01------------------------ G-------0------------------------------------------------------------- D--------------------------------------------------------------------- A--------------------------------------------------------------------- E--------------------------------------------------------------------- Well I finally sat down with the Singles CD and bashed this out. I can play the riff at the beginning, but now that I don't have my guitar in hand I forget it. Agh. I can't understand two places where Chrissy is singing either--'crescending' and 'baggle' aren't words that I know of, but that sounds like what she's saying. Corrections appreciated. Back on the Chain Gang, the Pretenders opening strum: D A G G D A G G riff x2 D A G G I found a picture of you oh What hijacked my world at nights To a place in the past we've been passed out of oh Now we're back in the fight Em A We're back on the train (ooh, ah) Ohh A D A G G Back on the chain gang The circumstance beyond our control oh The fool on TV and the news of the world Got in the house like a pigeon from hell, oh Crescending our eyes and descended like flies Put us back on the train, yeah Oh Back on the chain gang D A G G riff x2 bridge: Dm A Dm A and so on The powers that be That forces us to live like we do Bring me to my knees When I see what they've done to you chord comping I'll die as I stand here today Knowing that deep in my heart A Dm Therefore to ruin one day A E For making us part----- E B A A I found a picture of you, oh Those were the happiest days of my life Like a brick in the baggle was your part, oh In the wretched life of a lonely heart F#m B Now we're back on the train Ohh B E Back on the chain gang E B E B until end -- Internet member since 1988 BACK ON THE CHAIN GANGm The Pretenders D A Em7 D A Em7 (rpt over riff) D A Em7 Gmaj7/B G I found a picture of you oh D A Em7 Gmaj7/B G What hijacked my world that night D A Em7 Gmaj7/B G To a place in the past we've been cast out of oh D A Em7 Gmaj7/B G Now we're back in the fight Em A Em7 A We're back on the train hey Em A D A D A Aaaah, back on the chain gang Circumstance beyond our control oh The phone, the TV, and the news of the world Got in the house like a pigeon from hell, oh Threw sand our eyes and descended like flies Put us back on the train, yeah Aaaaah, back on the chain gang D A Em7 D A Em7 D BRIDGE: Dm A7 Dm A7 Dm The powers that be that force us to live like we do A7 Dm A7 Dm A7 Dm A7 Bring me to my knees when I see what they've done to you Dm A7 Dm A7 Dm Well I'll die as I stand here today, knowing that deep in my heart A7 Dm They'll fall to ruin one day A7 E B A For making us part----- E B A Amaj7/B A/B I found a picture of you, oh E B A Amaj7/B A/B Those were the happiest days of my life E B A Amaj7/B A/B Like a break in the battle was your part, oh E B A Amaj7/B A/B In the wretched life of a lonely heart A B A B Now we're back on the train, hey A A/B E Aaaah, back on the chain gang B E B E (rpt and fade) Em7: 0 2 2 0 3 0 Gmaj7/B: 3 2 4 0 0 2 Amaj7/B: x 0 6 6 5 4 A/B: x 7 7 6 5 5 NOTE: If you find Gmaj/B too hard to finger, try Bm in its place. Not as accurate, but a hell of a lot easier. (from Learning to Crawl, 1983) (sent by Harlan at harlant@hawaii.edu) There are about three versions of this already in the archive, but none of them is quite right. This one's a little better; someone sent it to me last fall, and I recently cleaned it up because I wanted to play it. Unfortunately, this might still have mistakes; I can't check because I don't have the album. I'll have to see if I can get them to play it on the radio...
