[Verse 1]
           Am                                         Em 
Where the winds of change were blowin', there lived a God-fearing man
        Dm                  G             Am
He was turning through his bible when he came up with a plan
    Am                            Em        
He painted up a sign and held it high above his head
          Dm             G       Am                   G/B  
Waved it proudly in the air and this is what it read.......

[Chorus]
 C                  Dm  
You can't break the law
           Am                
There are reasons for the rules
   Dm                         G     
I keep things safe here for everyone
     Am  
The sinners, saints, and fools
     C                Dm   
The poor and huddled masses
         Am   
Who are hungry and afraid
          Dm             G              
You gotta do it by the book and there'll be
Am
No exceptions made

[Verse 2]
        Am                         Em  
To the weary, desperate souls who washed up on the sand
              Dm               G             Am            
He said, "We hadn't seen your paperwork" and he withdrew his hand
             Am                             Em
You know he never felt any safer, all the peace he hoped he'd find
   Dm                    G        Am                    G/B
And up until the day he died, he never changed his mind.....

[Chorus]
 C                  Dm  
You can't break the law
            Am
There are reasons for the rules
           Dm                      G
They gotta keep it safe here for everyone
     Am
You sinners, saints, and fools
      C               Dm    
The poor and huddled masses
         Am        
Who are hungry and afraid
          Dm            G  
You gotta do it by the book or there'll be
Am
No exceptions made

[Instrumental]
Em   Dm   Am

[Verse 3]
        Am                               Em
By the time he got to Heaven, it was surrounded by a wall
      Dm                     G              Am   
The pearly gates were locked up tight, the golden chains and all
                 Am                            Em   
They said, "We cannot let just anyone walk in here anymore
           Dm            G                    Am  
You didn't do it by the book," and then they pointed to the floor

[Chorus]
 C                  Dm  
You can't break the law
           Am                
There are reasons for the rules
   Dm                         G     
I keep things safe here for everyone
     Am  
The sinners, saints, and fools
     C                Dm   
The poor and huddled masses
         Am   
Who are hungry and afraid
          Dm             G              
You gotta do it by the book and there'll be
Am
No exceptions made

[Outro]
Am    Em    Dm    Am
