Lyrics

Ask No Questions, Hear No Lies (Capo 3 Bb harmonica)

(Instrumental GCGDG)

Chorus
G C
Sometimes you wanna know what’s goin’ on
G D
Sometimes you wanna know the truth
G C
Sometimes it’s best to just look ‘em in the eyes
G D G
Ask no questions, hear no lies


D Em
We used to tell the truth and nothing but the truth
D Em
We used to give our word
D Em
We used tell it like it is
G D G
Now we just flip folks the bird


D Em
We used to hear just the facts, ma’am
D Em
We used to believe what we heard
D Em
We used to trust the TV news
G D G
Now it’s just the theater of the absurd

Chorus
G C
Sometimes you wanna know what’s goin’ on
G D
Sometimes you wanna know the truth
G C
Sometimes it’s best to just look ‘em in the eyes
G D G
Ask no questions, hear no lies

(Instrumental G C G D G C G D G)



Bridge
C G
Does anybody even care
C G
About this post fact world we live in
C G
Does anybody even care
C D G
That some folks will say anything for winnin’
C D G
That some folks will say anything for winnin’

Chorus
G C
Sometimes you wanna know what’s goin’ on
G D
Sometimes you wanna know the truth
G C
Sometimes it’s best to just look ‘em in the eyes
G D G
Ask no questions, hear no lies


D Em
Now we have alternative facts
D Em
Where things no longer jive
D Em
Cuz in this crazy, mixed up world
G D G
Two plus two now make five

Chorus
G C
Sometimes you wanna know what’s goin’ on
G D
Sometimes you wanna know the truth
G C
Sometimes it’s best to just look ‘em in the eyes
G D G
Ask no questions, hear no lies
G D G
Ask no questions, hear no lies

(Instrumental G C G D G C G D G)
