RIFF 3 & 4 x2

VERSE 1
=======

                RIFF 3 (F1)
Blockades won't win you more votes

        RIFF 4 (F2)
A Cuban adjustment act

      RIFF 3 (F1)
Offer the world a dream

         RIFF 4 (F2)
Dress it up - it's blackmail

         RIFF 5 (F1)
Internal matter they say

    RIFF 6 (F2)
For two million dollars a day

        RIFF 3 (F1)
Maybe a future in film

          RIFF 4 (F2)
But Cuban boxers still win

BRIDGE
======

RIFF 7

CHORUS
======

E (F3 x2)          A (F3 x2)
Kidnapped - to the promised land

    D (F3 x2)
The Bay Of Pigs

        E (F3, F4)
Or baby Elian

E (F3 x2)   A (F3 x2)
Operation - Peter Pan

VERSE 2
=======

           RIFF 3 (F1)
Across the unfair divide

                 RIFF 4 (F2)
Where black will never meet white

        RIFF 3 (F1, F5)
So read my token lips

           RIFF 4 (F2)
As if they never exist

           RIFF 5 (F1)
You cannot buy a nation

         RIFF 6 (F2)
Not even Miami mob

          RIFF 3 (F1)
We follow a shining path

              RIFF 4 (F2)
That you will never destroy
