"From Red to Blue"
Billy Bragg
(from the album "William Bloke")

Notes: I suggest playing it using barre chords with a rhythm similar to that
used in the first bar of the intro. On the CD it is actually about a quarter
tone lower than shown below (who cares right?). The breaks aren't quite
perfect but will sound effective enough.

F Am Gm Bb
Another day dawns grey, It's enough to make my spit
F Am Bb Gm
Still we go on our way, just putting up with it
C Dm C Bb Gm
And when I try to make my feelings known to you
F Am Bb Gm F
It sounds like you have changed from red to blue

F Am Gm Bb
Well you're a father now, you see things in different ways
F Am Bb Gm
For every parent will, gain perspective on their wilder days
C Dm C Bb Gm
But that alone does not explain, the change I see in you
F Am Bb Gm F
The way you've drifted off from red to blue

Dm C Bb F
Sometimes I think to myself
Bb F Bb F
Should I vote red for my class or green for our children?
Dm C Bb F
But whatever choice I make
I will not foresake e ----------------|

F Am Gm Bb
So you bought it all, the best your money could buy
F Am Bb Gm
And I watched you sell your soul for their bright shining lie
C Dm C Bb Gm
Where are the principles of the friend I thought I knew?
F Am Bb Gm F
I guess you let them fade from red to blue

F Am Gm Bb
I hate the compromises that life forces us to make
F Am Bb Gm
We must all bend a little if we are not to break
C Dm C Bb Gm
But the ideals you opted out of, I still hold them to be true
F Am Bb Gm F (hold)
I guess they weren't so firmly held by you.
