TOJO

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter



         INTRO:  E - D  (4 times)


                 E                    D
             I.  Tojo never heard the first bomb.
                      E              D
                 went off in his backyard.
                 E                 D
                 melted his pocket comb,
                 E               D
                 killed his myna bird.
                     A                    D
                 but Tojo never heard the first bomb.
                 A          D
                 Tojo never heard.
                 A                    D
                 Tojo never heard the first bomb.
                 A
                 Tojo never heard.


INSTRUMENTAL A:  E - D - E - B - D - E


                 E                  D
            II.  Tojo never had any warning,
                 E             D
                 no warning at all.
                 E                  D
                 Truman should have warned him,
                 E               D
                 pacifist voices call.
                     A                  D
                 but Tojo never had any warning,
                 A             D
                 no warning at all.
                 A                  D
                 Tojo never had any warning,
                 A
                 no warning at all.


INSTRUMENTAL B:  E - D - E - D - E - D
                 E - B - D - E


                 E                      D
           III.  Tojo finally heard the second blast.
                 E             D
                 he gave up at last.
                 A          D
                 sorry, Nagasaki.
                 A             D
                 sorry for the pain.
                 A          D
                 sorry, Nagasaki,
                     A
                 but Truman's not to blame.
                   E               D
                 Hiroshima was the warning
                      E
                 that Tojo never heard.
