  Hey Gloria
         A                    E
Are you standing close to the edge?
E                Abm
  Lookout to the setting sun
A                   B
  The brink of your vision
E         Abm
  Eternal youth is
  A                 E
A landscpe from the lie

  The cracks of my skin can prove
A                   B
  As the years will testify

Pre-Chorus 1:
Dbm                    Abm

  Were going to start a war
Dbm              Abm
  Your slogans a gun for hire 
A              xB-x hold -
  It's what we waited for

Chorus 1:
E               Abm
Gloria, Viva La Gloria
  You blast your name
In graffiti on the walls
   Falling thought broken glass that's
 E       B             Dbm
Slashing thought your spirit
A                             B
  I can hear it like a jilted crowd

Chorus 2:
E                     Abm
Gloria, Where are you Gloria?
   You found a home
In all your scars and ammunition 
Am                           E
  You made your bed in salad days
 B          Dbm
Amongst the ruins
A                       B
  Ashes to ashes of our youth 

Verse 3:
E                 Abm           Dbm
  She smashed her knuckles into winter
A            E               B
  As autumns wind fades into black
E            Abm              Dbm
  She is the saint on all the sinners 
A                E                  B
  The one that's fallen thought the cracks

So don't put away your burning light

E                     Abm
Gloria, Where are you Gloria?
   Don't lose your faith 
To your lost naivete
  Weather the storm and don't look
E       B      Dbm
Back on last november
A                                B
  When your banner where burning down
