Uke Tab : Back On the Chain Gang
"Back On the Chain Gang" - The Pretenders

D         A            G  D  A
I found a picture of you, oo-ooh   
D                A          G     D  A
That hijacked my world that night
D                 A               G            D  A
To a place in the past we've been cast out of, oo-ooh
D A                     G     D  A        
- Now we're back in the fight

Em                A
We're back on the train,
Em A                 D        G  D  A
Ah-ah, back on the chain gang

Circumstance beyond our control, oo-ooh  
The phone, TV, and the news of the world
Got in the house like a pigeon from hell, oo-ooh 
Threw sand in our eyes and descended like flies 

Put us back on the train, 
Aa-ah, back on the chain gang

Dm  A7          Dm 
The powers that be
A7                            Dm
That force us to live like we do
A7             Dm
Bring me to my knees
A7                              Dm  A7 Dm A7
When I see what they've done to you
Dm   A7                    Dm   
I'll die as I stand here today
A7                      Dm 
Knowing that deep in my heart
A7                       Dm
They'll fall to ruin one day
    A7          E  B  A
For making us part

E         B          A    E  B
I found a picture of you, oo-ooh
E              B                   A    E  B
Those were the happiest days of my life
E                   B               A     E  B
Like a break in the battle was your part, oo-ooh
E               B                A     E  B
In the wretched life of a lonely heart

A                     B     A  B
Now we're back on the train, 
A  B               E 
Aa-ah, back on the chain gang

B E (repeat then fade)
