Traffic - 40000 Headmen guitar tab

40,000 Headmen by Traffic (Winwood/Capaldi)

(Em) Forty thousand headmen couldn't (Am) make me change my mind
If I (Bm) had to take the choice between the (Am) deaf man and the blind
I (Bm) know just where my feet should go and (Am) that's enough for me
I (Bm) turned around and knocked them down
And (Am) walked a(G)cross the (Em) sea.

(same chord pattern as 1st verse)

Hadn't travelled very far when suddenly I saw
Three small ships a sailin' towards a distant shore
So lighting up a cigarette I followed in pursuit
And found a secret cave where they obviously stashed their loot

(E7) Filling up my pockets even (A7)stuffed it up my nose
I (E7) must have weighed a hundred tons bet(A7)ween my head and toes
I (E7)ventured forth before the dawn had (A7) time to change it's mind
 E7 A G Em
And (E7) soaring high above the clouds I (A) found a (G) golden (Em)

Laying down my treasure before the iron gate
Quickly rang the bell, hoped I hadn't come too late
But someone came along and told me not to waste my time
And when I asked him who he was he said "Just look behind"

So I turned around and 40,000 headmen bit the dirt
Firing twenty shotguns each and man it really hurt
But luckily for me they had to stop and then reload
And by the time they'd done I was heading down the road.

inst. break on Em

Heading down the road,
Forty thousand headmen on my trail

end on  C D Em
