No Power Without Accountability Chords

   
No power without accountability
By Billy Bragg

Intro

Em      A    D  Em

Verse 1

Em	       A		       
I grew up, in a company town
			Em
And I work a' hard til' the company closed down
Em		A
They gave my job, to another man
				Em
On half my wages in some foreign land
			A					Em
And when I asked, how could that be, any good for our economy,
	    A						Em		
I was told, nobody cared, so long as they make money and they sell their shares

Chorus 
Em			A
Can you hear us, are you listening
Em				A
There's no power without accountability

Verse 2
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/b/billy_bragg/no_power_without_accountability_crd.html ]
Em		A
I lost my job, my car and my house
										
Em		A
When 10,000 miles away some guy clicked on a mouse
Em			A
He didn't know me, we never spoke
Em			A		
He didn't ask my opinion or canvas for my vote
Em
I guess it's true, 
	A						
Nobody cares until them petrol bombs come spinning through the air
Em		
Gotta find a way 
				A			Em
to hold them to account before they find a way to snuff our voices out

Chorus


Verse 3

Em					A
The ballot box is no garruntee, but we achieve democracy
				Em
Our leaders claim their victory
			A
When only half the people've spoken
			Em			
There is no job security, And this global economy
Em				A			
Our borders closed to refugees
			Em
Our markets forced to open
Em			A
World banks is to Mexico
						Em
Well Crust Hoff if you don't keep them taxes low

chorus

Em			  A
They have no right to wield that sword
				Em
They take orders from  generals abroad
Em				A			
I am F, WTO I hear these words just to give the cops a go,
				Em
Who are those people, who elected them
Em			A			Em
And Why do I repeat them with some of my friends

Chorus x2

Em, A, D, Em

Repeat to fade
