D D Em Em G G
It all started on a day like any other
D D Em Em G G
All the salmon had swum to the sea
D D Em Em G G
When my lover she darted away down the stream
D D G G D D
With the heart that she'd taken from me

D D, Em Em, G G, D D, G G, D D

D D Em Em G G
And my chest though it ached there was hope
D D Em Em G G
A A little beacon of light
D D Em Em G G
Though my sunniest days were now stolen away
D D Em Em D D
I still had our son by my side

G G73
And as he looked up at me with those wondering eyes
Em Em G G
I just knew that I must protect him with my life
D D Em Em G G
And make a land that is good and a land that is free
Em Em G G D D
For the better of you and of me

G G D D
We'll build these walls with our own fair hands
G G D D
Through the wind and the rain and the snow
Em Em G G
And I swear on my life that I'll stay by your side
Em Em G G D D
Through whatever the world has to throw

D D, Em Em, G G, D D, G G, D D

D D Em Em G G
So I summoned my men to my side
D D Em Em G G
And we sung a familiar tune
D D Em Em G G
As a final goodbye with our fists to the sky
D D G G D D
To our past as we started anew

G G D D
We built these walls with our own fair hands
G G D D
Through the wind and the rain and the snow
Em Em G G
And we swore that we'd keep an unwavering faith
Em Em G G D D
To the land that we'd carved for a home

D D, Em Em, Bm Bm, G G, Gm Gm, D D
Em, A, Em71, Bm
Em, Em5, Em, Em71, G73, Bm, B7

Bm Bm G G
Oh the dawn of the day set our country aflame
D D Gbm Gbm Bm Bm B7 B7
As the sun rose bloody and true
Em Em G G
Arrows burned through the skies as we swallowed our pride
D D Gbm Gbm B7 B7
And we ran with our backs to the moon
Em Em
To our demise
Em5 Em5
From a friend full of lies

D D Em Em G G
Oh the break of the day shed its light
D D Em Em Em5 Em5
On our hearts left battered and bruised
D D Em Em G G
All the hopes that we'd laid on the home that we'd made
D D G G D D
Torn to pieces and left in the blue

D D Em Em G G
But my friend with an angry cry
D D Em Em G G
Held the weight of our world at his side
D D Em Em G G
Took a trembling stand with an arrow in hand
D D Em5 Em5 D D
As he muttered a final goodbye

D D, Em Em, G G, D D, Em5 Em5, D D
