King Tide And The Sunny Day Flood- Chords And Lyrics

by Billy Bragg

To hear the way I play it, click on the picture to the right. The chords are the same but I have a capo on the second fret.

 

 (VERSE #1)

C                       G              Am

Wouldn't it be wonderful  If we could save the world and all

F                  C                               G
Simply by collecting up    Tin cans and empty bottles

C                            G                   Am
We all want to believe it's true   But it don't matter what you do

F                             C                 G                                         C
So long as we continue to      Burn our way through fossils

 

(VERSE #2)  

       C                                G              Am
Now it should come as no surprise  To learn about the ocean's rise

        F                         C                                 G
The polar caps are melting  With every year that the planet warms

         C                          G               Am
Now people have to understand   We're going to feel it far inland

 F                   C                                          G                               C
It's going to shift the seasons    And super-charge the storms

 

(CHOURS)

C         G                        Am                                           F
King Tide is a-coming     King tide is a-coming

F         C                                         G
King tide is a-coming    Bringing flooding on a sunny day

C         G                    Am                                                                  F
King tide is a-coming    Can't you hear the melt waters running?

F         C                                          G                           C
King tide is a-coming    Going to sweep everything away
And you know

(VERSE #3)

         C                     G                  Am

The oceans they connect us all   No one can just build a wall

         F                           C                              G
We have to work together       We can't do this on our own

     C                               G               Am

To think that you can stand aside   Is nothing more than foolish pride

               F                              C                        G                                            C

'Cause everyone's a libertarian  Until the brown water floods their home

 

(VERSE #4)

        C                           G                       Am

Now you may live on higher ground     Feeling like you're safe and sound

   F                          C                             G

Thinking as you look around   This is your lucky day

           C                 G                   Am

But everyone beneath the sky    Soon be looking for somewhere high and dry

         F                             C                      G                          C

And nothing you can ever do    Will keep them all at bay

 

(CHORUS)

C          G                     Am                                          F

King tide is a-coming      King tide is a-coming

F       C                                              G

King tide is a-coming     Bringing flooding on a sunny day

C         G                     Am                                                                    F

King tide is a-coming     Can't you hear the melt waters running?

F          C                                              G                              C

King tide is a-coming     Going to sweep everything away

F         C                                             G                    C

King tide is a-coming     And we have to act today
