Intro C chordC - Gm chordGm - Dm chordDm - F chordF

Verse 1:

C chordC
This song is for the rats

Gm chordGm
Who hurled themselves into the ocean

Dm chordDm F chordF
When they saw that the explosives in the cargo hold

C chordC
Were just about to blow

Verse 2:

This song is for the soil
That's toxic clear down to the bedrock
Where no thing of consequence can grow
Drop your seeds there let them go


Am chordAm C chordC F chordF Am chordAm
Let them all go

C chordC F chordF Am chordAm
Let 'em all go

Verse 3:

This song is for the people
Who tell their families that they're sorry
For things they can't and won't feel sorry for

And once there was a desk
And now it's in a storage locker somewhere
And this song is for the stick pins and the cottons
I left in the top drawer

Interlude: C chordC - F chordF - Dm chordDm


Let 'em all go
Let 'em all go

Verse 4:

I wanna sing one for the cars
That are right now headed silent down the highway
And it's dark and there is nobody driving
And something has got to give

Verse 5:

I saw you waiting by the roadside
You didn't know that I was watching
Now you know
Let it all go


Let 'em all go
Let it all go
