Dog Eat Dog                                                                                                                         

2008 Garrett Clevenger

 

Am      They killed John F. Kennedy.

             They killed Martin Luther King.

             They killed our democracy

             in pursuit of their dream.

C          They killed education.

D          They killed science and truth.

Am      They killed balance of power.

Em        I hope they don't kill me and you.

 

Am      They want your labor.

             They want your dough.

               They want a favor:

               forget all you know.

C          They want your power.

D          They want the whole pie.

Am      They want everything

Em        and don't care if we die.

 

Chorus:

F     Em                    It's a dog eat dog world

G     Am G Am     Get prepared 'cause it's dog eat dog.

Am G Am

F     Em                    It's not fair or even just

G     Am G Am     but we're here and it's dog eat dog.

Am G Am          Dog eat dog.                              

Am G Am          Dog eat dog.

Am G F               Dog eat dog.

 

Am      We got a big brain.

               We got 2 eyes.

               We gotta use them

               at least we oughtta try.

C          We got our lives.

D          We got hopes and dreams.

Am      We got a right

Em        to expect respect.  You see,

 

Am      we want those bad dogs muzzled.

               We want them on a leash.

               We want them scolded

               for bein' such a beast.

C          We want empathy.

D          We want decency.

Am      We want compassion

Em        for every living being.
