(SOCAN) Transcribed: Jen Mikita D F#m G A I?m so content, to stand in line D F#m G A Wait and see, pass the time D F#m G A Talk a streak, fall asleep D F#m G A Wake up late, whine and weep Bm I kiss the hand that slaps me senseless A Bm A I?m so accepting, I am so defenseless Dm Am Dm Am Dm I am far too Canadian, I am far too Canadian I pick the bones of what?s been done and I Lick them clean with a cautious tongue In dim-lit rooms, I spill my guts I?m the revolution when the doors are shut I?d bite the hand that slaps me senseless But my patience, it is too relentless I am far too Canadian, I am far too Canadian Bridge: D G A I am the face of my country F#m Bm Expressionless and small D G A Weak at the knees, shaking badly F#m Bm Can?t straighten up at all G A F#m Bm I watch the spine of my country bend and break G A D I?m in a sorry state I scratch the walls to mark the days With my coup de tete I am locked away With mother Jones, pots of tea The kitchen poster, anarchy I never march in demonstrations I hold my breath for arbitration I am far too Canadian, I am far too Canadian I am far too Canadian, I am far too Canadian G A D I am a sorry state G A D Won?t you welcome to the sorry state? Just a note: most of the F#m?s can also be played as F#m 7th, if you prefer. This sounds most authentic on an acoustic.
