AWOL - Augie March (Glen Richards) Chords trans by S.Parker (responsible but sorry for any mistakes) Intro C - C7 - C Gm F Dm C Three dozen cycles, give or take a sum, Am Bb Gm C The sum of that experience - how to keep running. F Dm Gm C O I know justice, it's a birthright if you're born right, F Dm Gm C and I know how handsome is that trick of the light, C F Bb Gm So don't be mistaken in thinking I'll do right C F Bb C Bb C given the chance to do wrong again and again. Gm F Dm C Summer romeos casing the park, Am Bb Gm C by the uniform urinals of love's rural province. F Dm Gm C O don't you know time, with its petty vial of sands, F Dm Gm C inscrutable face and merciless hands? C F And don't you know love? Bb Gm It's a whirlwind of feathers, C F Bb Gm tickles you to your nethers and leaves a terrain of despair... Gm F Dm C And I know when grief goes unchecked, Am Bb Gm C There's a kind of relief in the wreckage for the wrecked... Gm F Dm C Weren't you alone last time I saw you? Am Bb Gm C How do you keep running from the world and the war? F Dm Bb C O I know young fathers who once were like soldiers, F Dm AWOL in flung places Bb C or without standing orders, C F Bb Gm C Alarming approaches to time and it's killing, F Bb C Bb C no victimless crime again and again, Again and again Bridge Gm - F - Dm - Am - Am - Bb - Gm - C F - Dm - Bb - C F - Dm - Bb - C Gm F Dm C Monday night, Goodies and The Doctor, Am Bb Gm C Now that bath time's over, time for pyjamas. F Dm Bb C O I know self pity, it begins with nostalgia, F Dm Bb C and you'll die of melancholy if the dolor don't get ya, C F Bb Gm And I know a poem on a wall next to a picture C F Bb C of a dick and a fanny, by a smear of regret. Gm F Dm Am Am Bb And it sings of its own long demise, something about imperium, Gm C and a new sun will rise, F Dm Bb C Gm Am Bb G and "O please don't go with those horrible guys, they only want one thing." F Dm Bb C C F Bb O please don't go with those horrible guys, they only want one thing, C Bb C Bb C Gm Again and again.
