The Ramones Are Dead Chords

   
Joey Cape  The Ramones are dead
(Bridge, 2008)


(Note: For easier play, use capo in 1st fret!)

        A#                            Gm
I can listen to the records from my younger years
           D#         F               D#7      F  
Pacify my bitter ears and revive the dead dinosaurs.
        A#                              Gm
Me and Jamo rode two buses round for Rockpile
                D#         F              A#        A#7
Sure to find a rarity and something to believe.

 D#                         Gm                          D#
But I can't listen to them now without mourning a small town
         F               A#        A#7
and the mom and pops I loved
D#                   Cm
Once were missionary men
D#                          F
We age into obscurity with them
                        A#      (F)
The Ramones are dead

A#                                              Gm
You could judge a band by the cover flipping through the bins
                   D#
Assured enough to take a spin
     F             D#7            F
The art and lyrics big enough to see and read
A#
Pull the record from its sleeve
Gm
Spear the cut hole, arm and seed
D#                  F               A#           A#7
Plunge the needle, shaking like a drug fiend


D#                      Gm
Now relevant again somehow
                  Cm
Reanimated sacred cow
        F                   A#       A#7
But it all seems different now
D#                        Cm
It's far too easy to find anything in demand
      G#            F
I'll say it once again

                         A#
The Ramones are dead.
