LyricsEverytime PlayedSong History

Won't Get Fooled Again
(Pete Townshend)
Lyrics transcribed by: Lyons Yellin
Music transcribed by: Ben Hendricks
Opening keyboards based over A and D chords

| /  /  /  / | /  /  /  / |
  A             G  D

Verse 1:
         A                         G  D
We'll be fighting in the streets
         A                      G  D
With our children at our feet
        A                D               E      G  D
And the morals that they worship will be gone
        A                       G  D
And the men who spurred us on
         A                          G  D
Said out judgments were all wrong
     A              D                 E      G  D
They decide and the shotgun sings the song

Chorus:
     D      A          D         A
I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
D      A           D       A
Take a bow for the new revolution
D         A           D          A
Smile and grin at the change all around
G                     E7
Pick up my guitar and play
G                E7
Just like yesterday
          G                   D
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
                            A   G  D
We don't get fooled again

Verse 2:
The change, it had to come
We knew it all along
We were liberated from the fold, that's all
And the world looks just the same
And history ain't changed
'Cause the banners, they all flown in the last war

(Chorus)

Bridge:
     B
I'll move myself and my family aside
E
   If we happen to be left half alive
     A
I'll get all my papers and smile at the sky
         B                                    A  E
Though I know that the hypnotized never lie

Jam over B > A > E  (main riff up a step)

A   G  D    A   G  D

A     G  D   A   G  D
Yeah!

Verse 3:
There's nothing in the street looks any different to me
And the slogans are replaced by-the-by
And the parting on the left is now parting on the right
And the beards have all grown longer overnight

(Chorus)

Keyboards and drum break

A   G  D    A   G  D

A     G  D   A   G  D
Yeah!

A                   G  D
Meet the new boss
A                     G  D
Same as the old boss

End on a big A
