       INTRO:  E -----
               G - E
               G - E


               G      E
            I.    the source of all pain
               G  E
                  under the sun;
               G      E
                  the source of the serpent,
               G  E
                  envy and sin;
               G      E
                  the source of all pride
               G      E
                  and persecution;
               G      E
                  the source of all progress
               G      E
                  and revolution:
                     D     E   E/B
                  compar - i - son,
                     C     D   A
                  compar - i - son.


INSTRUMENTAL:  G - E
               G - E


               G     E
           II.    compared with yesterday
               G  E
                  or what might have been,
               G      E
                  the one who went away,
               G      E
                  the prize you'll never win --
               G          E
                  you can call it pain,
               G          E
                  you can call it depression,
               G          E
                  you can call it sadness,
               G           E
                  but it's just an expression of
                     D     E   E/B
                  compar - i - son,
                     C     D   A
                  compar - i - son,
                     D     E   E/B
                  compar - i - son,
                     C     D   A
                  compar - i - son.


INSTRUMENTAL:  C - A
               C - A
               G - E
               G - E


               G  E
          III.    Wall Street jumping from the window
               G  E
                  when two million turns to one.
               G  E
                  all the folks down in the ghetto
               G  E
                  never knew the difference.
                     D     E   E/B
                  compar - i - son,
                     C     D   A
                  compar - i - son,
                     D     E   E/B
                  compar - i - son,
                     C     D   A
                  compar - i - son.


INSTRUMENTAL:  C - A
               C - A
               G - E
               G - E


               G         E
           IV.    you're cryin' 'cause you have no hat,
               G  E
                  like a coward in combat.
               G  E
                  think of Marie Antoinette,
               G  E
                  in her grave without a head.
                     D     E   E/B
                  compar - i - son,
                     C     D   A
                  compar - i - son.


               G  E
            V.    thinking that it could be better,
               G  E
                  nothing makes me more upset.
               G  E
                  thinking that it could be worse,
               G  E
                  maybe I can break the curse of
                     D     E   E/B
                  compar - i - son,
                     C     D   A
                  compar - i - son,
                     D     E   E/B
                  compar - i - son,
                     C     D   A
                  compar - i - son.


      ENDING:  C - A
               C - A
               C - A
               C - A
