intro 

G riff G riff

G 
On the day that dennis brown's lung collapsed
C D G (riff)
spring rain was misting down on kingston
G 
and down at the harbour local 
C D G (riff)
cops were intercepting an inbound shipment
C G
and for a while there it was chaos 
C D
as they handcuffed and then roughed up some sailors
G
on the day my lung collapses
C D G (riff)
it's not gonna be much different

G
On the day that dennis brown's habits caught up with him
C D G (riff)
school children sang in choirs
G
and out behind the chinese restaurants 
C D G (riff)
guys were jumping into dumpsters
C G
and the stench was overbearing 
C D
but they were past the point of caring
G
on the day my habits catch up with me
C D G (riff)
i'll be down among the jumpers

and then D (light on the high notes)


G 
and when the birds come home in spring
C D G (riff)
we will fill them full of buckshot
G
and jets of contaminated blood 
C D G(riff)
will cloud the rivers and the lakes
C G
it took all the coke in town 
C D
to bring down dennis brown
G C
on the day my lung collapses
D G (riff)
we'll see just how much it takes
