Grab the Mallet

March 22, 2017

hip1The 2017 poli/corp Gong Show we are all watching actually originated from Chuck Barris’ warped sense of what cultivates & attracts mass acceptance.

Barris, the Hollywood TleV icon and CIA assassin passed away today. But the insanity has been set into unstoppable motion.

Now that’s entertainment?? Makes you wanna crawl into a damn dank dark damp cave and sob uncontrollably eh.

The Gong Show – 1977

Bow your heads…let us weep. And slowly rock ourselves to sleep:
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds – Weeping Song – live in Lyon – 2001

Lyrics and both chords (Am and G) from ultimate-guitar.com

Weeping Song
Go son, go down to the water
And see the women weeping there
Then go up into the mountains
The men, they are weeping too

[Verse 2]

Father, why are all the women weeping?
They are weeping for their men
Then why are all the men there weeping?
They are weeping back at them

[Chorus]
This is a weeping song
A song in which to weep
While all the men and women sleep
This is a weeping song
But I won’t be weeping long

[Verse 3]

Father, why are all the children weeping?
They are merely crying son
O, are they merely crying, father?
Yes, true weeping is yet to come

[Chorus]

This is a weeping song
A song in which to weep
While all the men and women sleep
This is a weeping song
But I won’t be weeping long

(It’s the same chords here, as usual, but you can play softer or stress the bass
for this part if you like.)

[Verse 4]

O father tell me, are you weeping?
Your face seems wet to touch
O then I’m so sorry, father
I never thought I hurt you so much

(play as usual)

[Chorus]

This is a weeping song
A song in which to weep
While we rock ourselves to sleep
This is a weeping song
But I won’t be weeping long
But I won’t be weeping long
But I won’t be weeping long
But I won’t be weeping long
