[Verse 1]
G                                 G
Somewhere in your wardrobe I'd be willing to bet
         F                            C
there's a t-shirt probly bearing the silhouette of Che Guevara

(not sure on this little funky bit as I can't find a way to make it fit in with the 
song, just sticking to a pause after the C, but here's what I think it is)
E-----------------------------|

D---3p1p0---3p1p0----3--5-----|

       G
He was revolutionary, yeah, he wore a cool hat
       F                                           C
but behind the design I think you might find it's not quite as simple as that

(funky bit)
Bb5                           A5                             G
Che was a bit of a homophobe, Che was a bit of a homophooooobe    x2


[Chorus]
            G         Bm                 C
This is my song in defence of the fence
                       D
A little sing along, a tribute to ambivalence
    Eb                                Bb
The more you know the harder you will find it
                F                                      Eb
To make up your mind it doesn't really matter if you find
                                Eb
You can't see which grass is greener
                 Bb                          F
Chances are it's neither and either way it's easier
                Eb                F               G
To see the difference when you're sitting on the fence


[Verse 2]
G
Somewhere in your house I'd be willing to bet
          F                               C
there's a picture of that grinning hippy from Tibet - the Dalai Llama

(funky town)
        G
He's a lovely, funny fella, he does good stuff galore
    F                                          C
but let's not forget that back in Tibet those funky monks used to dick the poor yeah

(funktaculous)
         Bb                                             A              
                   G
And the [Buddhist slime?] about future lives is the perfect way to stop the powerless 
rising up
        Bb                                      A                      
                 G
And he tells the poor they will live again, cos he's rich now so it's easy for him to say


[Chrous]
             G           Bm                C
I'm taking a stand in defence of the fence
                C                       D
I got a little band playing anthems to ambivalence
     Eb                                 Bb
We divide the world into terrorists and heroes
                     F                             Eb
Into normal folk and weirdos, into good people and paedos
                          Eb                                Bb
Into things that give you cancer and the things that cu-ure cancer
                                F
And the things that don't cause cancer, but there's a chance they will cause cancer in 
the future
      Eb                               Bb
We divide the world to stop us feeling frightened
                     F                            Eb
Into wrong and into right and into black and into white and
                  Eb                           Bb
into real men and fairies, into status quo and scary
                       F                        Eb       F    
   G
yeah we want the world binary, binary, but it's not that simple.
