NUCLEAR WINTER

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter



         INTRO:  C - Am - C - Am


                 C             Am
             I.  freeze now or freeze later.
                 C          F  C     G
                 world war: final theatre.
                 Am                     Bb
                 check your antifreeze,
                 F                         G
                 get your skates and skis.
                        Am                    Bb
                 now or later we will freeze.
                 G
                 tell the headline printers
                         Am
                 and the weathermen
                    Dm            G
                 at all the press centers:
                 Am
                 day and month,
                 Dm      G   C
                 nuclear winter.


                 /// REPEAT INTRO ///


                 C         Am
            II.  we have enough warheads
                 C       F     C          G
                 so everyone alive can be dead.
                               Am                Bb
                 but there are babies coming due,
                     F                  G
                 and we must build anew
                    Am                     Bb
                 so we can kill them, too.
                 G
                 another threat is hurled.
                         Am
                 the generals
                            Dm      G
                 have their flags unfurled.
                     Am
                 but it's not war,
                          Dm         G   C
                 it's the end of the world.


  INSTRUMENTAL:  C - Am - C - Am - C - Am
                 C - F - C - G

                          Am                          Bb
           III.  now if I want to kill myself, (bang, bang)
     (partial          F                      G
       verse)    I can do it by myself. (with gas)
                         Am                Bb
                 I don't need atomic help.
                 G
                 tell the undertakers,
                 Am
                 tell the movers
                 Dm      G
                 and the shakers:
                 Am
                 blessed
                 Dm           G  C
                 are the peacemakers.


                 /// REPEAT INTRO ///


                 C             Am
        ENDING:  freeze now or freeze later  (8 times)
