ChoA: Frack-frack-fracking G-D7
What the frack is fracking? C7-G
Fracking’s using water C7-G
To whack oil from our ground. A7-D7
ChoB: Frack-frack-fracking G-D7
Your concern for us is lacking! C7-G
So we’re packing you off, C7-G
To save the water in our town. A7-D7-G, D7
We love the water in our city
But when you frack, it’s not so pretty
In fact, I feel like “gacking”
When I try to drink it down
Cause your fracking blows the water
Into places that we oughter
Keep it outta, ‘cause it comes out
Kinda oily, green and brown!
Well, you haven’t got my backing
So let’s cut all the yacking
You’re racking up the profits
From the oil you take up!
And it seems that you’re uncertain
‘Bout the damage to our dirt,
An we refuse to take the risks,
Because our town is waking up!
So go back t’where ya came from! Em
We don’t want you here G
Your fracking makes our water burn Em
So let us make it clear! A7-D7
(Chorus B)/ (Instrumental Chorus B)
Would you frack your own home water?
Would your family be distraught,... or
Would you only do it far away
From where your family lives?
No one cares about the oil
If it ruins all our soil
If it makes the water putrid
Would you do it to your kids?
And we’ve heard about the earthquakes
That happen when you frack
Y’say you never make mistakes,
But we don’t believe you Jack!
Chorus B - So we’re packing you off, C-G
T’save the water in our town! D, D7, G-Cm-G
