Last updated: 05/20/2008 11:00:00 AM

Capo 2nd Fret (all chords names are relative to capo)

Intro

C#m7 - A - A (w/HO) - A - open - G9 - D/F# - E9 - E9 (w/HO)

A/B E9 (w/ pull off) D#m7 D (C bass) D E9 (add g
bass)
There are rifles buried in the countryside by the rising of the moon
A/B D9 (po) G9 A D
May they lie there long forgotten till they rust away into the ground
A/B E9 (w/ pull off) D#m7 D (C bass) D E9 (add g
bass)
Who will bend this ancient hatred, will the killing to an end
A/B D9 (po) G9 A D
Who will swallow long injustice, take the devil for a country man
A/B D#m7 D C D/F# G9 D/F# C#m7
Who will say this far no further, oh lord, if I die today

(Solo)

Send no weapons, no more money. Send no vengeance across these seas
Just the blessing of forgiveness for my new countrymen and me

A/B E9 D#m7 F# E9
Missing brothers, martyred fellows, silent children in the ground,
Could we but hear them, would they not tell us,
Time to lay God’s rifle down

A/B D#m7 D C D/F# G9 D/F# C#m7
Who will say this far no further, oh Lord, if I die today.

C#m7 - A - A(w/ HO) - A - G9
