TRICKLE DOWN

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


* = play chord with no 3rd


                 E*
             I.  let's create a lower caste.

                 let's inflate the criminal class,
                        Aadd9*
                 'cause people only want more
                           Am/C       E*
                 when they start with less.
                 Aadd9*
                 robbing nurses of their purses
                 G
                 'til the curse
                 E*
                 pervades this town...
                 Aadd9*
                 then you will learn
                 G
                 all about
                 E
                 trickle down.


                 E*
            II.  a voice in the dark resounds sharply,

                 shakes you in its teeth like shark feed.
                 Aadd9*
                 burning sticky wet bleed
                 Am/C    E*
                 on your gown
                 Aadd9*
                 will show you a thing,
                 G
                 a thing about
                 E*
                 trickle down,
                 Aadd9*
                 will show you a thing,
                 G
                 a thing about
                 E
                 trickle down.


  INSTRUMENTAL:  like verse


                 E*
           III.  you say this is a fickle town:

                 "fear stalks the streets of Trickledown."
                 Aadd9*
                 and when you lie there
                 Am/C      E*
                 veiled in sweat,
                 Aadd9*
                 you turn and reach for
                      Am/C  E*
                 your tourniquet.
                 Aadd9*
                 you'll know dollars aren't
                 G
                 the only things
                 E*
                 that trickle down.
                 Aadd9*
                 and you will know
                 G
                 the truth about
                 E
                 trickle down.
