Subject: CRD — BILLY BRAGG — To Have and To Have Not

This one has a single repetitive riff that goes along it. Those of you who
know it will have no difficulty in framing it onto the lyrics, it’s:

G C G Em D G all they way through. BIG FUN!

He plays open standard chords, but surfing up and down the neck to barre’
territory doesn’t do any harm… try out and see.

The lyrics as far as i could get them (corrections please…):

To Have And To Have Not — Billy Bragg (from Life’s a Riot w/ Spy vs Spy)
======================= = ==============================================

Up in the morning and out in school
Mother says there’ll be no work next year
Qualification makes(?) the Golden Rule
Now just pieces of… paper

Just because you’re better then me
Doesn’t mean i’m lazy
Just because you’re going forwards
Doesn’t mean i’m going backwards

If you look the part(?) you’ll get the job
In last year’s trousers and your old school shoes
The truth is, son, it’s a buyers market
They can afford to pick and choose…

Just because you’re better then me
Doesn’t mean i’m lazy
Just because i dress like this
Doesn’t mean i’m a Communist!

The factories are closing and the army’s full
I don’t know what i’m going to do
But i’ve come to see, in the Land of the Free
There’s only a future for the Chosen Few

[repeat Chorus1]

At 21 you’re on top of the scrap hip
At 16 you were top of you’re class
All they taught you at school was how to be a good worker
The system has failed, you’ve done(?) by(?) yourself

[repeat Chorus1]
