INTRO: (Neil plays some licks on the high strings) F Dm F Dm F Dm F You never know what the future holds in the shallow soil of Monsanto, Monsanto F Dm F The moon is full and the seeds are sown while the farmer toils for Monsanto, Monsanto Bb Am C F When these seeds rise they're ready for the pesticide Bb Am C F Dm F Dm F And Roundup comes and brings the poison tide of Monsanto, Monsanto F Dm F Dm F The farmer knows he's got to grow what he can sell, Monsanto, Monsanto F Dm F So he signs a deal for GMOs that makes life hell with Monsanto, Monsanto Bb Am C F Every year he buys the patented seeds Bb Am C F Dm F Poison-ready they're what the corporation needs, Monsanto F Dm F Dm F When you shop for your daily bread and walk the aisles of Safeway, Safeway F Dm F Dm F Find the package to catch your eye that makes you smile at Safeway, at Safeway Bb Am C F Choose a picture of an old red barn on a field of green Bb Am C F Dm F Dm F With the farmer and his wife and children to complete the scene at Safeway, at Safeway F Dm F Dm F Dreams of the past come flooding back to the farmer's mind, his mother and father F Dm F Dm F Family seeds they used to save were gifts from God, not Monsanto, Monsanto Bb Am C F Their own child grows ill near the poisoned crops Bb Am C F Dm F Dm F While they work on, they can't find an easy way to stop, Monsanto, Monsanto SOLO OVER: E E6 E E6 E E6 E Don't care now what the Bible said so long ago not Monsanto, Monsanto E E6 E E6 E Give us this day our daily bread and let us not go with Monsanto, Monsanto A G#m B E The seeds of life are not what they once were A G#m B E Mother Nature and God don't own them anymore JAM OVER: E E6
