Rule, Britannia! chords
Thomson / Arne 1740

G D7 G D7 G C G D7 G

G    Em G    C         D           G
When Britain first, at heaven s command,
 D G D      Em      A7    D
arose  from out the azure main
        Bm     D         G       D A7  D
Arose, arose, arose from out the azure main.
G            C            Am      C  A7  D
This was the charter, the charter of the land,
    G   D7    G D7 G C  G    D7  G
And guardian  angels    sang the strain.

G       C
Rule Britannia!
   Am     C    A7  D
Britannia rule the waves.
G  D7   G      D7     G  C   G     D7 G
Britons never, never, never  shall be slaves.

G       C
Rule Britannia!
   Am     C    A7  D
Britannia rule the waves.
G  D7   G      D7     G  C   G     D7 G
Britons never, never, never  shall be slaves.

G   Em G    C      D        G
The nations not so blest as thee,
     D G D      Em      A7      D
Must in   their turn to tyrants fall,
     Bm       D          G        D 
Must in their turn, must in their turn,
   A7      D 
To tyrants fall,
G                C            
While thou shall flourish,
      Am   C   A7        D
Shall flourish great and free,
    G D7  G D7 G C  G  D7   G
The dread and  envy of them all.

G       C
Rule Britannia!
   Am     C    A7  D
Britannia rule the waves.
G  D7   G      D7     G  C   G     D7 G
Britons never, never, never  shall be slaves.

G       C
Rule Britannia!
   Am     C    A7  D
Britannia rule the waves.
G  D7   G      D7     G  C   G     D7 G
Britons never, never, never  shall be slaves.

Still more majestic shalt thou rise,
More dreadful from each foreign stroke.
More dreadful, more dreadful
From each foreign stroke.
As the loud blast that tears the skies,
Serves but to root thy native oak.

G       C
Rule Britannia!
   Am     C    A7  D
Britannia rule the waves.
G  D7   G      D7     G  C   G     D7 G
Britons never, never, never  shall be slaves.

Thee haughty tyrants  never shall tame,
All their attempts to bend thee down,
All their attempts, all their attempts
To bend thee down,
Will but arouse thy generous flame.
But work their woe and thy renown.

G       C
Rule Britannia!
   Am     C    A7  D
Britannia rule the waves.
G  D7   G      D7     G  C   G     D7 G
Britons never, never, never  shall be slaves.

To thee belongs the rural reign,
Thy cities shall with commerce shine,
Thy cities shall, thy cities shall
With commerce shine.
All thine shall be the subject main,
And every shore it circles thine.

G       C
Rule Britannia!
   Am     C    A7  D
Britannia rule the waves.
G  D7   G      D7     G  C   G     D7 G
Britons never, never, never  shall be slaves.

G       C
Rule Britannia!
   Am     C    A7  D
Britannia rule the waves.
G  D7   G      D7     G  C   G     D7 G
Britons never, never, never  shall be slaves.
