100 Years Of Solitude Chords

100 years of solitude - Levellers 
From eponymous album

It like to play the song using barre chords: Bm(VII), A(V), G(III) D(V)
and Bm(II) in the "things you learnt" bit

you could use power (5th) chords.  They often use "normal" open position chords live

Bm   | G   |D    |A  

Bm   (N.C)                             fade out w/vol or whatever
All around you slow decay
Wanna feel the sun of a new day
Forget all tme chances lost
Shedding innocence like falling dust

        Bm                     G
All the things you learned too young
    Bm                 G
The songs you knew but never sung
Bm                     G
Waited a long time and wasted more
   D               A
Forgotten what you waited for

  Bm      A         G
Excuse me ma'am for being so rude
           D            A
Feels like 100 years of solitude
   Bm      A           G
My mind is numb but my mouth's ok
             D        A
And you can listen or walk away

Bm   | G   |D    |A      x2

Bm   (N.C)
No solutions built to last
Just your petty scores to settle fast
The n.m.e was nothing to you
         D                A
And the maker, well the maker of who
     Bm          G
This walkman generation
   Bm                 G
In search of sweet sedation
      Bm                    G
While forests choke under a'lever sky
         D                  A
And the exxon birds that'll never fly


[BRIDGE] (in octaves)  B    D     E 
We tried, we cried. We fell. We lied
This life's like a white knuckle ride
(N.C)                      G
Crack babies born too young
   D                A
And l.a. kids who dance to the gun
     Bm                  G
So forget this so called dirt of mine
              Bm                 G
It's tust the dust and diesel of passing time
     Bm                  G
It's all around you - a tragedy, look
      D                 A
So forget the cover and read the book.


Bm   | G   |D    |A      x2


E5 Palm Muted then as Bridge to End
