    I cross the green mountain,           I sit by the stream
Am7                     G/B         C                        D
    Heaven blazing in my   head, I   dreamt a monstrous dream
C                     G/B   Am7              Dsus4 D Dsus2 D
     Something came up         out of the sea
Em                       C           D              Em
    Swept through the land of,  the rich and the free

[Verse 2]
Am7                      G/B       C                      D

Am7                     G/B     C               D
    And then i ask myself,       is this the end?
C                G/B     Am7             Dsus4 D Dsus2 D
   Memories linger,         sad yet sweet              and I
 Em            C       D                Em
think of the souls  in heaven who will meet
C       G       D

[Chorus]
C                G/B         Am7                    G
   Altars are burning,         with flames far and wide
C                         G/B     Am7                  Dsus4  D Dsus2  D
   The foe has crossed over          from the other side
C                     G/B   Am7                       G
   They tip their caps,        from the top of the hill
Am7                     G/B          Cadd9               Dsus4       D
   You can feel them come,      more brave blood to spill

[Verse 3]
Am7             G/B  C              D
   Along the dim,      Atlantic line
Am7               G/B   C                     D
   the ravaged land,      lies for miles behind
C                           G/B     Am7                         Dsus4 D Dsus2 D
   The light's coming forward           and the streets are broad
Em              C    D                   Em
   All must yield      to the avenging God
C       G C G       

[Chorus]
C                 G/B   Am7                 G

C                 G/B   Am7                         Dsus4  D Dsus2  D
   Lessons of life,        can't be learned in a day
C                   G/B  Am7                          G
   I watch and I wait,      and I listen while I stand
Am7                      G/B    Cadd9                   Dsus4       D
   To the music that comes         from a far-better land

[Verse 4]
             Am7               G/B         C                  D
   Close the eyes of our   captain,         peace may he know
Am7                      G/B    C                            D
   His long night is done,       the great leader is laid low
C                      G/B    Am7                      Dsus4 D Dsus2 D
   He was ready to fall,         he was quick to defend
Em                      C        D              Em
   Killed outright he was,         by his own men
C       G C G

[Verse 5]
Am7                            G/B      C                       D
   It's the last day's last hour,         of the last happy year
Am7                      G/B    C                 D
   I feel that the unknown        world is so near
C                  G/B    Am7                  Dsus4 D Dsus2 D
   Pride will vanish         and glory will rot
Em                C      D                   Em
   But virtue lives       and cannot be forgot
C       G       D

[Verse 6]
Am7            G/B      C                       D
     The bells            of leavening have rung
Am7                G/B    C                D
   There's blasphemy        on every tongue
C                          G/B    Am7                     Dsus4 D Dsus2 D
   Let 'em say that I walked         in fair nature's light
Em                    C     D                     Em
   And that I was loyal       to truth and to right
C       G C G

[Chorus]
C                          G/B     Am7                   G
   Serve God and be cheerful,         look upward, beyond
C                             G/B    Am7                    Dsus4  D Dsus2  D
   Beyond the darkness of masks,        the surprises of dawn
C                         G/B     Am7                          G
   In the deep green grasses         of the blood stained world
Am7                                G/B      Cadd9                          Dsus4       D
   They never dreamed of surrenderin',           they fell where they stood

[Verse 7]
Am7                      G/B      C                D
   Stars fell over Alabama,         I saw each star
Am7                       G/B      C                D
   You're walkin' in dreams,         whoever you are
C                      G/B    Am7                  Dsus4 D Dsus2 D
   Chilled are the skies,         keen as the frost
Em                        C      D                     Em
   The ground's froze hard         and the morning is lost
C       G C G

[Verse 8]
Am7                 G/B      C            D
   A letter to mother           came today
Am7                          G/B     C                   D
   Gunshot wound to the breast         is what it did say
C                         G/B     Am7                       Dsus4 D Dsus2 D
   But he'll be better soon,          he's in a hospital bed
Em                          C       D                Em
   But he'll never be better -         he's already dead
C       G C G

            I'm ten miles outside the city,      and I'm lifted away
Am7                    G/B     C                    D
     In an ancient light,         that is not of day
C                               G/B     Am7                        Dsus4 D Dsus2 D
   They were calm, they were blunt,         we knew 'em all too well
Em                            C      D                   Em
   We loved each other more than       we ever dared to tell
