Verse:
   G            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

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

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...
