lyrics

Capo 5
Intro C C C C

Verse 1 C G Am Am/G F
There’s this king that I’ve heard about, in a tower white as snow.
C G Am Am/G F
And he likes to use some holy words, if they’re fitting to his cause.
C C#dim Dm F
I don’t really know, but it seems that he could find some words to stop this little war.
C C C C

Verse 2
There’s this little boy I’ve come to know, and he thinks that i’d be cool.
To go off and fight this enemy, that has treated us so cool.
There’s something very wrong, when the children of the world just want to kill each other off.

C C C C

Solo

Verse 3
I remember when the Reds across the sea, were as evil as anyone could be.
Turns out they were just like you and me. Who taught me this belief?
And so it comes again, another generation learns to hate some folks they’ve never met.
