The Big One's Get Away.
Buffy Saint-Marie
Album: Coincidence & Likely Stories.

Intro: C Am7 F G6
                               C
Hey, Baby I just got back from town,
                     Am7
Where the bribes are paid,
                            C
Honey, they turned my offer down,
                   G/F     G
They say the deals already made,
G6                       C
So now I gotta stand and watch,
                   Am7
While it all comes down,
                         Fmaj7
And the buzzards and the hawks,

And the judges and the mob,
Bb6    C/G  G7
Circle round.

      Em          C                Am7
Now if I were the queen of all the world,
              C                          G7
I would go in chains just to see you free,
                  C
Of the ropes that bind you,
                 Am7
And the role you play,
                   C        Em C 
And the pride that hooks you,
          G7           C/G  Em C G 
While the big ones get away,

C
Love junkies wanna change the world,
   Am7
It quickly stays the same,
    Fmaj7                                C
And money junkies hire all the smart ones,
G6
Power junkies run the game.

              C              Am7
One step at a time, Polarity Hill,
                      G/F      C
If the bad guys don't get you, baby,
              F6       C/G G
Then the good guys will,
                   C   Cmaj7
With angels on the take,
                     Am
And gangsters in the yard,
                        Fmaj7
Hey don't the wars come easy,
                         C/G  G7
Hey don't the peace come hard.

         C                       Am7
Now if I had a way, to reach the sky,
                       Fmaj7
I'd grab that crescent moon,
F
Wield it like a knife,
                  C/G G6
Save you from the lies,
                    C       Cmaj7
From the ropes that bind you,
                 Am7
And the role you play,
                  C
And the game that hooks you,
C                     G7
Now the bug one's get away.

Fade: C Am7 Fmaj7 C G C Am7 Fmaj7 C G6 C
