The Man’s Too Strong

 
Introduo: Dm C Bb Dm 


     Dm                                   C 
I'm just an ageing drummer boy and in the wars I used to play 
          Bb                                 Dm 
And I've called the tune to many a torture session 
                                           C 
Now they say I am a war criminal and I'm fading away 
Bb                          Dm 
Father please hear my confession 
           G            D 
I have legalised robbery called it belief 
       G                     D   
I have run with the money and hid like a thief 
G                                D 
I have re-written history with my armies and my crooks 
          C          Am  D 
Invented memories I did burn all the books 
           Dm                           C                  Em 
And I can still hear his laughter and I can still hear his song 
                                D         C 
The man's too big the man's too strong 
            G                          D                                           
Well I have tried to be meek and I have tried to be mild 
          G                   D 
But I spat like a woman and sulked like a child 
       G                            D     
I have lived behind walls they have made me alone 
            C       Am     D     
Striven for peace which I never have known 
          Dm                                C               Em 
And I can still hear his laughter and I can still hear his song 
                               D 
The man's too big the man's too strong 
         G                                 D   
Well the sun rose on the courtyard and they all did hear him say 
          G                   D 
You always were a Judas but I got you anyway 
    G                               D 
You may have got your silver but I swear upon my life 
Dm                  C        Am                      D 
Your sister gave me diamonds and I gave them to your wife  
    Dm                       C            Em 
Oh father please help me for I have done wrong 
                                  D 
The man's too big the man's too strong
