Establishment Blues Intro: E - all the way E The mayor hides the crime rate A council woman hesitates E A Public gets irate but forget the vote date E A Weatherman complaining, predicted sun, it's raining E A Everyone's protesting, boyfriend keeps suggesting F# D E you're not like all of the rest E A Garbage ain't collected, women ain't protected E A Politicians using people, they've been abusing E A The mafia's getting bigger, like pollution in the river F# D E And you tell me that this is where it's at. A Woke up this moming with an ache in my head A Splashed on my clothes as I spilled out of bed A Opened the window to listen to the news B But all I heard was the Establishment's Blues. E A Gun sales are soaring, housewives find life boring E A Divorce the only answer smoking causes cancer E A This system's gonna fall soon, to an angry young tune F# D E And that's a concrete cold fact. (same chords as above) The pope digs population, freedom from taxation Teeny Bops are up tight, drinking at a stop light Miniskirt is flirting I can't stop so I'm hurting Spinster sells her hopeless chest. Adultery plays the kitchen bigot cops non-fiction The little man gets shafted, sons and monies drafted Living by a time piece, new war in the far east. A It's a hassle is an educated guess. B E Well, frankly I couldn't care less.
