Hard Day On The Planet
Loudon Wainwright Iii
Hard Day on the Planet chords by boognishlives It's about time we got some chords of this amazing artist on this site, no? Here is my contribution. No Capo; Standard tuning. The beat for this song is kind of staggered, so listen to the song while playing to get the beat. Am E The dollar went down, and the President said: Am E "Who's in charge, now?" I don't know, take your pick. Am E A new disease every day and the old ones are coming back. Am E Things are looking kind of gray, like they're going to black. Am E Don't turn on the TV, don't show me them papers. Am E Don't want to know he got kidnapped, or why they all raped her. Am E I want to go on vacation till the pressure lets up, Am E But they keep hijacking airplanes and blowing them up. Chorus: F Am Its been a hard day on the planet C E Am How much is it all worth? F Am Its getting harder to understand it C E Am Things are tough all over on earth. (chords repeat throughout song.) Its hot in December and cold in July When it rains it pours out of a poisonous sky In California the body counts keep getting higher Its evil out there, man that state is always on fire. Everyone has a system, but they can't seem to win Even Bob Geldorf looks alarmingly thin I got to get on that shuttle get me out of this place But there's gonna be warfare up there in outer space (chorus) I've got clothes on my back, and shoes on my feet... A roof over my head, and something to eat... My kids are all healthy and my folks are alive... You know, it's amazing but sometimes I think I'll survive. I've got all of my fingers and all of my toes... I'm pretty well off I guess, I suppose... So how come I feel bad so much of the time? A man ain't an island, John Dunn wasn't lying. (chorus) It's business as usual; some things never change It's unfair, it's tough, unkind and it's strange We don't seem to learn; we can't seem to stop Maybe some explosions would close up the shop You know, maybe that would be fine; we would be off the hook. We resolved all our problems, never mind what it took. And it all would be over, finito, the end! ...until the survivors started up all over again! (chorus, with minor variation): Its been a hard day on the planet How much is it all worth to you? Its getting harder to understand it, Things are tough all over on earth, it's true. Its been a hard day on the planet How much is it all worth to you? Its getting harder to understand it, Things are tough all over on earth, it's true. End on Am.
