Intro:
G C x2

          G                     C
It was an upset in two minutes flat
                    G                    C
We were back on the freeway, foot to the mat
             Em                      A7
I can't understand it we had it down pat
              C                           D
It's very upsetting, could we leave it at that?
              G                     C
We all had positions we each had a role
            G                           C
We'd over-rehearsed it we had full control
                     Em                         A7
They can't teach you acting, it's there in your soul
                     C                          D
It's the same with a bank job, and each thing we stole

                Em D/F# G
So I don't need attitude
                    Em D/F# G
Cause you knew just what to do
                C
We all did our best now
                C/B
We all need to rest now
             A7
Leave me alone
              D
Wait by the phone

           G                    C
I was the driver you ran the show
             G                      C
You had the last word, the go or no go
              Em             A7
I knew every laneway in Ontario
                        C                               D
But it's not what you're sure of, it's what you don't know
                        G                 C
It should have been filled with the usual ones
                G                 C 
Throwing their cash into mutual funds
                Em                           A7
We all had our ski masks and sawed-off shotguns
                C                        D
But how do you plan for a bank full of nuns?

                G                           C
Well, I guess we panicked - we all have taboos
                    G                       C
And they were like zebras they had us confused
                Em                       A7
We should be in condos with oceanfront views
                   C                           D
Instead we're most-wanted on the six o'clock news

                Em D/F# G
So I don't need attitude
                   Em  D/F# G
Cause you knew just what to do
                C
We all did our best now
                C/B
We all need to rest now
          A7
Leave me alone
                 D
And wait by the phone

Break:
Em D/F# G C D/F# G
C C/B A7 D x2


            G                           C
Inside the police car you tried to explain
                G                               C
your crisis of conscience the voice in your brain
                  Em                              A7
And now that the whole thing has gone down the drain
                C                               D
I think we all know who should shoulder the blame
                G                       C
Cause you made a choice there, almost sublime
                G                       C
I'm all for compassion, just not on my dime
                    Em                          A7
You looked like an amateur, and that's the real crime
                C                         D
So I'll take a walk now, and you do the time

                 Em D/F# G
And I don't need attitude
                    Em D/F# G
Cause you knew just what to do
                C
We all did our best now
                B/C
We all need to rest now
          A7
Leave me alone
                    D
There's no need to phone


G D
    We all did our best now
G D
    We all need to rest now
G D
   Leave me alone
G D
   We all did our best now
G D
   We all need to rest now
G D
   Leave me alone
G D
   Leave me alone
