If You Tolerate This Your Children... guitar tab

IF YOU TOLERATE THIS YOUR CHILDREN WILL BE NEXT

[Intro] Am Em F C  [X2]

Am			  Em
The future teaches you to be alone
    F				     C
The present to be afraid and cold
       F			   C
'So if I can shoot rabbits then I can
      G
shoot fascists'

Am		     Em
Bullets for your brain today
    F				 C
But we'll forget it all again
          F
Monuments put from pen to paper
C				G
Turns me into a gutless wonder

	     Dm
And if you tolerate this
 Am				    G
then your children will be next
	     Dm
And if you tolerate this
 Am				    G
then your children will be next,

will be next, will be next, will be next

Am 	Em 	F 	C

Am		  Em
Gravity keeps my head down
F		   C
Or is it maybe shame
   F			C            G
At being so young and being so vain

Am		  Em
Holes in your head today
    F          C
but I'm a pascifist
     F
I've walked La Ramblas
C    			   G
but not with real intent

	     Dm
And if you tolerate this
 Am				    G
then your children will be next
	     Dm
And if you tolerate this
 Am				    G
then your children will be next,

will be next, will be next, will be next
 
[Solo] Dm Am G 	[X2]

     Dm              Am
'And on the street tonight-
           G
An old man plays 
     Dm                 Am          G
with newspaper cuttings of his glory days

	     Dm
And if you tolerate this
 Am				    G
then your children will be next
	     Dm
And if you tolerate this
 Am				    G
then your children will be next,

will be next, will be next, will be next
