Coins and Crowns

words and music Elaine Diane Taylor

Chorus

Bm
It’s all going down, down, down

the peasants reeling

from the game of coins and crowns
F#m
we’re all feeling
Bm
When they borrow for war
A
With no gold in store
Bm
They just print more
A                                                                 Bm
Then our costs go up and our jobs go down
A                                                       Bm
Hunger goes up and hope goes down
A                                                           Bm
Then anger goes up and it all goes down down down

Verse 1

Bm
Gold and silver from the ground

Five thousand years of money found

Mine it up, melt it down
F#m
A fair exchange will keep us sound
Bm
Print it up then it all goes down

Chorus

Verse 2

Bm
Kings and queens with golden crowns

Five thousand years of empires founded

Make some war, win some ground
F#m
Just give us bread and circus clowns
Bm
to keep us down

Chorus

Tag
Bm
Down, down, down

Down, down, down
