Bastards by Machine Head Guitar Chords

[Verse]
C
Yesterday I told my sons, "Sometimes the bad guys win."
    G
And that it made me scared about the world that we live in
      Am
But I had to reassure them that it wouldn't be for long
F
Sons we have to be ourselves, we have to be strong

         C
I said, 'Boys you are the future, so let this be a lesson
       G
There may come a day you have to fight off their aggression
       Am
Cause fear and hatred won today, the darkness ate the light,"
     F
But both of you look in my eyes, it'll be all right.

   C
In every step you take
    G
I'm with you all the way
              Am
Cause I would die for you, and do what's right for you
               F
In hopes that when I'm gone, you'll carry on
       F
These words I wrote for you

[Chorus]
      G
'Til then
       F
I'll sing

C           G
Stand your ground
      Am               F
Don't let the bastards grind you down
   C         G
Be bold, be strange
      Am                      F
Don't let their fears make you afraid
        G              F
There's hope, they'll change

[Verse]
        C
Well I looked out to the world today, thought 'What a bloody mess!'
        G
They stripped our morals from us, put 'em under house arrest
    Am
'Liberty and country' are the words they need to speak
          F
A little “god,” a little “freedom,” if we don’t agree, we're weak

     C
And every politician stood there idle and so smug
   G
Empowering the racists and Second Amendment thugs
   Am
Wall St. and the billionaires, convinced us they’re so smart
        F
Saying “vote with your wallet, instead of with your hearts!”

    C
But we won't go away!
    G
You won’t forget our name!
    Am
The pussy generation, the PC and the brave
    F
The protesters that slink along these streets of misery

[Chorus]
    G
And so...
     F
I'll sing

C           G
Stand your ground
      Am               F
Don't let the bastards grind you down
   C         G
Be bold, be strange
      Am                      F
Don't let their fears make you afraid
        G              F
There's hope, they'll change
       G
We'll change
        F
We'll change

[Interlude]
C
No, no, no, no, no. Fuck no
G
No, no, no, no, no. Fuck no
Am                 F
No, no, no, no, no. Fuck no!

[Verse]
    C
So give us all your faggots, all your niggas, and your spics
  G
Give us all your Muslims, the so-called terrorists
       Am
We'll welcome 'em with open arms and put 'em in our mix
       F
We're better off together now, embrace our difference

   C
Remember there is love!
     G
Our words can stop their guns
   Am
Forget the rednecks, living in the past
       F
We're never going back now, we've reached critical mass!

    G
And so...
     F
I'll sing

[Outro]
 C        G
Stand my ground
      Am                F
Won’t let the bastards grind me down
     C        G
I’m bold, I’m strange
       Am                     F
Won’t let their fears make me afraid
        G              F
There’s hope, they’ll change
