Intro:

Em - Cmaj7 - D - C  (x2)


soldier:
Em                        Cmaj7         
they settled dust in your hair
   D                   C
to watch you shake and shout it out.
Em                 Cmaj7
with our armaments bared
   D                 C
we shed our bags and travel alls.

Em                  Cmaj7
from the lee of the wall
   D                          C
he comes in the chang and the chariot
Em                     Cmaj7
and all his eunuchs in thrall
    D                        C
can scarce lift his line and lariat.

B
here com loose his hounds
   A            
to blow me down.
                            E  A (x3) B
chorus of waifs: blow me down.

soldier:
B
on this stretch of ground
     A
i'll lay me down.

Em                    Cmaj7
and now stricken with pangs
     D                      C
that tear at our backs like thistle down
Em                       Cmaj7
the mirror's soft silver tain
  D                   C    
reflects our last and birthing hour
