Christy Moore - El Salvador Guitar Chords

Christy Moore

celtic, irish folk

Chords: Am, G, Em, F, C
this is another good song on acoustic
as with ride on its finger picking through the whole song

Verse 1
  Am                  G
A girl cries in the early morning 
Em                      Am
Woken by the sound of a gun
Am                 G
She knows somewhere somebodys dying
Em                F
Beneath the rising sun
C                G
Outside the window of her cabania
   Am                          Em
The shadows are full of her fears
C                      G
She knows her lover is out there somewhere
     Am                    Em
He's been on the run for a year


F    G               Am
Oh,the soul of El salvador

Verse 2

Bells ring out on the chapel steeple
A priest prepares to say mass
The sad congregation come tierd and hungry
To pray that the troubles will pass
Meanwhile the sun rises over the dusty streets
Where his body was found
Flies and mosquitoes are drinking from pools of blood
Where the crowd gathers round.


out on the ranch the rich mans preparing 
to go for his morning ride
they've saddled his horse out in the corral
he walks out full of pride
he looks like a cowboy from one of those pictures
a president made in the past
peasants in rags, they stand back for they know
that enrico gallops fast

Over the soul of El Salvador.
