Lyrics

The Days After The SHTF (tempo = 120)
Intro: (E)x3 (A-A#-B)
(E) It could be caused by a civil war
or by a foreign attack,
a natural EMS
could make the grid out of whack,
(A7) When there is no power, no communications
and nowhere to turn,
(E7) to fight alone to survive
while the whole world burns
(B7) It'll be too late to (A7) run around
(B7) cry for help like a madman (A7)
(E7) On the days after (A7) B7)
the shit hits the (E7) fan.
(E7) (E7) (E7) (A-A#-B)

(E) You may think it will never happen
in your lifetime,
you may believe that the world
has never been so fine,
(A7) But if you look back in history
look back long enough,
(E7) You'll see that the world
was only fit for the toughest of the toughs,
(B7) It'll be too late to (A) run around
(B7) cry for help like a madman (A)
(E) On the days after (A) B7)
the shit hits the (E) fan.
(E7) (E7) (E7) (A-A#-B)

Bridge:
(A7) Beware of those you trusted before,
(E7) On the days after the shit hits the fan.
(A7) Can't trust anyone in a uniform,
(B7) On the days after the shit hits the fan.

Solo:
(same as verses)

(E) You're laughing at the preppers,
for piling up provisions,
You think there'll always be for you
a good Samaritan,
(A7) But when you find yourself
on the wrong side of the guns,
(E7) When those who didn't prepare
are there by the millions,
(B7) It'll be too late to (A) run around
(B7) cry for help like a madman (A)
(E) On the days after (A) (B7)
the shit hits the (E7) fan.
(E7) (E7) (E7) (A-A#-B)
Outro:
(E7) ad libitum
