*Listen to the song for hammer-ons and pull-offs


Em/D - 020000



[Intro]
C  F  Am
C  F  Am  C



[Verse 1]
   F                       Am  C
Maybe we should take some time
C               F             Am
Long enough to let the blood dry
         C     F
On both sides
    Am   C     F  Am  C
On both sides


[Verse 2]
F                       Am  C
Maybe if we just slow down
C               F            Am
Long enough to lay our sons down
        C      F
And we retire
        Am
Before we
   C    F  Am
Retire


[Instrumental]
C  Em/D  Am
C  Em/D  Am  C


[Verse 3]
    F                 Am     C
The only thing that remains
C              F                  Am
Are graves to dig and rich mans games
                 C    F
That you had to play
          Am
That you had
    C    F  Am  C
To play


[Verse 4]
     F                           Am   C
The only thing they'll take from me
C             F                   Am
Is a life of peace and dreamless sleep
            C    F
Dreamless sleep
         Am             C    F  Am
Ohhhhhh dream....less sleep


[Instrumental]
C  Em/D  Am
C  Em/D  Am  C



[Verse 5]
   F                        Am    C
I guess I'd rather have my limbs
C             F                   Am
So you've got something to sleep in
            C    F
Than to be free
       Am        C    F  Am  C
Ohhhhh to... be free


[Verse 6]
  F                     Am   C
Brother I'll live in chains
C             F          Am
Than have you as a cell mate



[Outro]
         C  Em/D  Am
Before a meeeeeemory
         C  Em/D  Am
Before a meeeeeemory
         C  Em/D  Am
Before a meeeeeemory
         C  Em/D  Am
Before a meeeeeemory
         C  Em/D  Am
