After which the first Em readily comes.

There was a man from Muddlebro', whose problems he laid
down
(Em) G D Em
Upon another's doorstep, in a distant stranger's town
Em D
But forgeting what he'd come for, and in patronizing
tones
Em G D Em
He gave them all his clothes and bread, to stop their
moans and groans
Em C C Em

Midverse chords under guitar solo:

G D Em C-C/B-Am G-G/F#-Em Em G D D

then repeat intro.

Verses 2 & 3 as first with same chords inbetween:

"It's not your fault where you were born", he said, all
condescending,
"We cannot all be made like me, with lots of true-blue
blending",
"But never-mind, i'll pass the hat around our gracious
nation"
The strangers held their laughter back, remembering
their station...

Back home in the Heads of State the people's memory
woke
And yet their yapping didn't stop, whoever rose and
spoke
But in the fields potatoes flowered, and gulls came
with high tides
And men came back from cutting wood, and gathered by
firesides.

The outro is part I of the intro, with an Em (sometimes
two) in it's end.

The chords:

G 320033

C X32010
