Am C It all started on a day like any other G Am C All the salmon had swum to the sea G Am C When my lover she darted, away down the stream G C G With a heart that she'd taken from me Interlude: G Am C G C G Verse: G Am C And my chest though it ached, there was hope G Am C a little beacon of light G Am C Though my sunniest days were now stolen away G C G I still had our son by my side Pre-Chorus: C Gbdim And as he looked up at me, with those wondering eyes Am C I just knew that I must protect him with my life G Am And make a land that is good C And a land that is free Am C G For the better of you and of me Chorus: C G We'll build these walls, with our own fair hands C G Through the wind and the rain and the snow Am C And I swear on my life, that I'll stay by your side Am C G Through whatever the world has to throw Interlude: G Am C G C G Verse: G Am C So I summoned my men to my side G Am C And we sung a familiar tune G Am C As a final goodbye, with our fists to the sky G C G To our past as we started anew Chorus: C G We built these walls, with our own fair hands C G Through the wind and the rain and the snow Am C And we swore that we'd keep an unwavering faith Am C G To the land that we carved for a home Interlude: G Am Em C Cm G Am D Adim7 Em G Am Em C Cm G Am Cm Am Adim7 Gbdim Em E7 Bridge: Am C Oh, the dawn of the day set our country aflame G Bm Em E7 As the sun rose bloody and true Am C Arrows burned through the skies, as we swallowed our pride G Bm E7 And we ran with our backs to the moon Am To our demise... Cm From a friend full of lies... Verse: G Am C Oh, the break of the day shed it's light G Am Cm On our hearts left battered and bruised G Am C All the hopes that we'd laid, on the home that we made G C G Torn to pieces and left in the blue... G Am C But my friend with an angry cry G Am C Held the weight of our world at his side G Am C Took a trembling stand, with an arrow in hand G Cm G As he muttered a final goodbye... Outro: G Am C G Cm G
