A Better Life
[Verse]
   Em                     Am     C            D
As fearless leader of the Ravenskill Militia
Em                    Am                  D
The blood of warriors flows throughout my veins
Em                        C                     Bm
My brother's gift remains my secret ammunition
Em                           D
It is our hope, our pride, a catalyst for change 

[Chorus]
          Am            G     F#m      D 
Still the fires of revolution burn within my eyes
   Am                    G                  D
On this perilous road to freedom, he's our one and only guide

[Verse]
Em                            C
For many years, I've seen our people starve and suffer
Em                 D   Am              D
How many more will die before we stand and fight?
Em                       Am        C            Bm
They ask me Arhys, could things be any tougher?
Em              D
The answer's no surprise, yes, you bet your life

[Verse]
Am                 G              F#m          D
Now the fires of revolution won't burn forever more
  Am               C              D
I see liberty in our future, and it's one we're fighting for

[Verse]
Em      D         C      Bm
We all long for a better life
Em     F#m              C      D
Like a dream that can't be denied
Am          G       C          D
This is the moment, now is the time
Bm
Freedom if we live or if we die

[Outro]
Em      Bm   G     Em     D
I shall give him a better life
Em           Bm        C     D     Bm
I swore this vow to my dying wife
Am              Em       D 
Sure, she would not survive
Am      F       Em
Peacefully she slipped away
    F#m           Am
The meaning in my life
    F             Am
Was born that day
    Bm   G                           C       Am          Bb
And so I found the strength to carry on with this crusade
         Em
It is my fate

[Final
Am     F        Am              F          Am
Evangeline, you lived a life of misery and pain
Am     F         G              F             C
Evangeline, I'll never let your memory die in vain
C      G       F                 Am
Evangeline, my heavy heart still bleeds
F              C               Em F#m G Bm  
I dedicate my life to set you free
    F            G                Am   F#m
And I will carry on to plant the seeds
Bb        C                       D
I promise in the name of our new son
Bb                    Am        D
This battle won't be over until it's won
