intro: 
D A E G
D A E G6 (riff2)

     D           A             E           G
they asked me to come down and watch the parade
       D              A               E        G
and to march down the street like the duracell bunny
       D          A             E    G
with a wink and a wave from the cavalcade
D            A          E          G (riff2)
throwing out candy that looks like money
F#riff            Bm          A          E/Ab      G6        F#*     
to people passing by that all seem to be going the other way
A              D         A           E      G
said won't you follow me down to the rose parade?
        D      A        E           G (riff2)
tripped over a dog in a choke-chain collar 
D           A            E           G (riff1)
people were shouting and pushing and saying
           D        A           E          G (riff1)
and when i traded a smoke for a food stamp dollar
  D          A        E            G (riff2)
a ridiculous marching band started playing
F#riff              Bm        A         E/Ab    G6           F#* 
and got me singing along with some half-hearted victory song
A         D         A           E      G (riff1)
won't you follow me down to the rose parade?
          D         A           E      G (riff2)
won't you follow me down to the rose parade?
          F#        E           A      E   G
won't you follow me down to the rose parade?
    D           A      E       G (riff1)
the trumpet has obviously been drinking
          D          A        E        G (riff2)
'cos he's fucking up even the simplest lines
    D          A            E           G (riff1)
i'd say it's a sight that's quite worth seeing
               D          A           E             G (riff2)
it's just that everyone's interest is stronger than mine
F#riff                  Bm                 A    E/Ab        G6          F#* 
and when they clean the street i'll be the only shit that's left behind
A         D         A           E      G  (riff1)
won't you follow me down to the rose parade?
          D         A           E      G  (riff2)
won't you follow me down to the rose parade?
          F#        E           A      E   G
won't you follow me down to the rose parade?
