Track Name: Happy Go Lucky (Go Fuck Yourself)
Happy Go Lucky Go Fuck Yourself

CHORDS: C F G C

Happy go lucky go fuck yourself
I don’t wanna talk to you
Happy go lucky go fuck yourself
I don’t wanna talk to you

I don’t care how you wear your hair
Oh I grew my hair real long then I shaved one side
I combed it to one side then thought to myself
Asymmetrical is radical
Happy go lucky go fuck yourself
I don’t wanna talk to you
Happy go lucky go fuck yourself
I don’t wanna talk to you
Got to get our eyes of the fashion scene
Turn off that TV throw out that magazine
Happy go lucky go fuck yourself
I don’t wanna talk to you

I don’t care what you eat
The poor folks I know like deep fried processed meats
So fry up your tempeh in some coconut oil
don’t make no difference to me
Happy go lucky go fuck yourself
I don’t wanna talk to you
Happy go lucky go fuck yourself
I don’t wanna talk to you
Gotta get our struggle from the grocery isle
and out into the street
Happy go lucky go fuck yourself
I don’t wanna talk to you
Happy go lucky go fuck yourself
I don’t wanna talk to you
Happy go lucky go fuck yourself
I don’t wanna talk to you
Track Name: Worth My Weight In Gold
worth my weight in gold I am, oh you know
worth my weight in gold I am, oh you know
devil made me sure yeah we made a deal
worth my weight in gold I am

sold my soul to find it out, you know I did
sold my soul to find it out you know I did
sold my soul for my weight in gold
worth my weight in gold I am

worth my weight in gold I am, oh you know
worth my weight in gold I am, oh you know
carry no soul just a bag of gold
worth my weight in gold I am

got my fortune told, my palms read
got my fortune told, my palms read
never did like what that fortune teller said
worth my weight in gold I am

drank my worth of gold, you know I did
drank my worth of gold, you know I did
carry no gold, just the story I told
worth my weight in gold, I am dead
Track Name: Barflies (fuck it - yolo)
VERSE: A Bm E A x 2
CHORUS: E7 A x 2 F#m E D A
The barflies are at the coffee shop
they’ve been grouches all morning
emptying coffee pots
filling up ashtrays
taking years off their lives
they don’t show signs of stopping
to go home and see their wives

and I, I don’t blame ya
no I, I don’t blame ya
for saying fuck it
you only live once

the bar stools are empty
just down the street
and everyone there knows your name
so theres no one left to please
as long as you settle up
at the end of the night
you won’t have to drink alone
for the rest of your life

and I, I don’t blame ya
no I, I don’t blame ya
for saying fuck it
you only live once

the factory sits empty
where some people used to work
they say entertainments the new industry
hope your skills will transfer
but its hard to keep amused
when your pockets start to hurt
but a good case of cheap beer
will never lose its worth

and I, I don’t blame ya
no I, I don’t blame ya
for saying fuck it
you only live once

between the cheers and pints
and empty jugs and jars
i hear people talking
in all the local bars.
they say the revolutions coming
i can feel it in my bones
but its so hard to smash the state
while i’m paying off my loans

and I, I don’t blame ya
no I, I don’t blame ya
for saying fuck it
you only live once
Track Name: Mine Is Yours
MINE IS YOURS
VERSE: D A D
CHORUS & INSTRUMENTAL: A D x 2 Bm A D x2
you gave to me your heart
with words soft and kind
sure was hard to trust
but i gave you mine

but the world is not black and white
not even shades of grey
life is full colour
love makes it feel that way

you said share with me
your whole heart
mine is yours
oh mine is yours

some say the world was made from dust
and now we are all here
you said life is full of meaning
won’t you search for it with me

but love is never easy
when we hurt inside
we fear what we desires true
so we run and hide

you said share with me
your whole heart
mine is yours
oh mine is yours

now i have many friends
that i could make love too
they’re beautiful their skin is soft
and their friendship is real true

but you are the one
my heart has chose
i have not been perfect
thats not the reason you have froze

you said share with me
your whole heart
mine is yours
oh mine is yours

i’m not afraid for you to break me
if thats what you need do
go see the world
and sleep with every sailor and backpacker that you meet

guess thats all you’ve ever known
might be all you ever see
i’m sorry to be honest
what’d you ask of me

you said share with me
your whole heart
mine is yours
oh mine is yours

you gave to me your heart
with words soft and kind
sure was hard to trust
so i gave you mine
Track Name: Happy Go Lucky (reprise)
all the anarchists i know
well they have degrees
but the ones that really wanna smash the state
are working on their phd’s
but there’s a revolution coming
won’t matter what class you took
how many banners you dropped
or angry fists you shook
happy go lucky go fuck yourself
i don’t wanna talk to you
happy go lucky go fuck yourself
i don’t wanna talk to you
we say we wanna fight to win
but invest and participate
in the institutions built on colonial hate
happy go lucky go fuck yourself
i don’t wanna talk to you

i don’t care about the songs you sing
the words or the chords or the harmonies you bring
everyone knows folk music’s too polite
to make anyone change their mind
happy go lucky go fuck yourself
i don’t wanna talk to you
happy go lucky go fuck yourself
i don’t wanna talk to you
you’ll be lucky if anyone even taps their toes
let alone starts a sing-a-long movement that goes
happy go lucky go fuck yourself
i don’t wanna talk to you
