Artist : Paul McCartney
Song : Despite Repeated Warnings

[Part I] : 

[Chorus 1] : 
A  AM7              A7
Despite repeated warnings
B7           Dm  E7
Our danger's up ahead
A   Em                  D
The captain won't be listening
D                 E
To what's been said

[Verse 1] : 
A  AM7                  A7         
It feels that there's a good chance
B7           Dm      E7
That we have been misled
A   Em               D
And so the captain's planning
D        E7
To steam ahead

[Verse 2] : 
Am              G
What can we do, what can we do
F
What can we do to stop
F            E7
This foolish plan going through
Am              G2
What can we do, what can we do
F                              E
This band is 'bout to lose his ship and his crew

C D

[Chorus 2] : 
A  AM7              A7   
Despite repeated warnings
B7             Dm       E
From those who ought to know
A          Em              D
Well, he's got his own agenda
D            E7
And so he'll go

[Bridge] : 
Am
Those who shout the loudest
G2
Will not always be the smartest
F
But they have their proudest moments
E7
Right before they fall
Am
Red sky in the morning
G2
Doesn't ever seem to faze him
F
But a sailor's warning signal
E7
Should concern us all

C D

[Part II] : 

Gm

[Chorus] : 
Gm         Em
How can we stop him?
Cm                Gm
Grab the keys and lock him up
Gm        Em7     Cm              Gm
If we can do it, we can save the day

[Verse 3] : 
C9
The engineer lives with his wife and daughter, Janet
Em7
But he misses them so
C9
Although he's working with the best crew on the planet (The best crew on the planet!)
Em7
We'll never want him to go
C7
He had a premonition
C7
He said that something's wrong
Em
And by his own admission
Em
He knew it all along
C9
The captain's crazy but he doesn't let them know it
Em7
He'll take us with him if we don't do something soon to slow it

C Gm C Gm

[Chorus] : 
Gm         Em
How can we stop him?

If we can do it, we can save the day

[Bridge 3] : 
E7
No brakes, the engineer cries
E7b5
No one's gonna leave us when the temperatures rise
E7
The wheel's going up, the engine's gonna blow

And we are gonna be left down below
Am     Em
Down below

And that's the way you learn

How you got to do it

A  AM7             A7   
Despite repeated warnings
B7           Dm  E7
Our danger's up ahead
A         Em             D
While the captain wasn't listening
D           E7
To what was said

[Outro] : 
Am
So we went to the captain (What can we do / For those who shout the loudest)
G2
And we told him to turn around (What can we do / May not always be the smartest)
F
But he laughs in our faces (What can we do / But they have their proudest moments)
E7
Says that we are mistaken (Right before they fall)
Am
So we gather around him (What can we do / Red sky in the morning)
G2
Now the ropes that have bound him (What can we do / Doesn't ever seem to phase him)
F
Know that he shouldn't listen (What can we do / But a sailor's warning signal)
E7
(Should concern us all)
E7
To the will of the people
C
It's the will of the people
D
It's the will of the people

[End] : E
