Don't Let the Bastards Get You Down--Kris Kristofferson
written by Kris Kristofferson
From the album "Broken Freedom Song: Live From San Fransisco"

NOTE: This is a different version than the one on the "Third World Warrior" album.  I
think it's in a different key, and I know it has different lyrics.  It's a bit more
contemporary than the original version.

INTRO: G

G
Rightious killin' in the name of freedom
C
We been down that sorry road before
G                                 G/B
They let us hang around a little longer than we should've
C                           D
It's too late to fool us anymore
G
We've seen the ones who kill the ones with vision
C
Cold blooded murder right before your eyes
G                                 G/B
Today they hold the power and the money and the guns
C                                    D
It's gettin' hard to listen to their lies


CHORUS:
C                                G
And I just gotta wonder what my Daddy woulda done
C                                             G
If he'd seen the way they'd turned his dream around
C                      G
I gotta go by what he told me
C                                     C/B
Try to tell the truth and stand your ground
C                D                G         
Don't let the bastards get ya down


(SPOKEN)
G
Bombin' Bagdad back into the stone age, 'round the clock
C
Non-stop for 40 days, killed 'em in their homes and on their highways
G
Now after a decade of cripplin' sanctions we're talkin' about goin' back in there
C                                       D
And doin' it all over again, fightin' terrorism


CHORUS

G
(Don't let the bastards get ya down)
C                D              G
Don't let the bastards get ya down
G
(Don't let the bastards get ya down)
C               D                        G
Don't let the bastards....get ya down
