   VERSES
 
G                     D
You lost faith in the human spirit
Fmaj7                  C
You walk around like a ghost
Cm                 G*
Your star-spangled heart
      Am             D
Took a train for the coast


G                       D
When you shine you're a hilltop mansion
Fmaj7                 C
So how'd you lose the light?
       Cm           G*
Was it blown by the wind,
       Am           D
In the still of the night?
C
We're up against the wall



   CHORUS (strum like intro)


G
Up against the wall
D-C                          D    Em
  There's something dying on the street

When they knock you down
G-Am                            Cadd9 
  You're gonna get back on your feet
 C                 D 
(No you can't stop now)



   VERSES

G                     D
I always saw you as a kind of keeper
Fmaj7         C
A mother to a child
         Cm              G*
But your boys have grown soft
         Am              D - Dsus2
And your girls have gone wild


G                   D
From the blue ridge to the black hills
Fmaj7           C
To the redwood sky
    Cm         G
The season may pass
        Am           D
But the dream doesn't die
C
Why did you drop the ball?



   CHORUS (strum like intro)

G
Up against the wall
D-C                          D    Em
  There's something dying on the street

When they knock you down
G-Am                            Cadd9 
  You're gonna get back on your feet
 C                 D 
(No you can't stop now)


G
When they break your heart
D-C                         D  Em
  When they cause your soul to mourn

Remember what I said
G-Am                 Cadd9
  Boy you was battle born
 C                  D
(No, you can't stop now)



   INTERLUDE

Em   Am                Cadd9
        You was battle born...
Em                             C
   When the night falls on the land
                       Am      Cadd9
Are you haunted by the sound?...

Em                              Cadd9
    It's gonna take more than a hand
                    Am
To turn this thing around
                     C
Won't you lean it on me?
        Am     Em
Rescue, set me free



   CHORUS (strum like intro)

G
Up against the wall
D-C                          D    Em
  There's something dying on the street

When they knock you down
G-Am                            Cadd9 
  You're gonna get back on your feet
C                    D 
Cause you can't stop now


G
Did they break your heart?
D-C                        D  Em
  Did they cause your soul to mourn

Remember what I said
G-Am                 Cadd9
  Boy you was battle born
C                    D
Cause you can't stop now


G
Come on show your face
D-C                   D     Em
  Come on give us one more spark

So we'll start a fire
G-Am                      Cadd9
  Unless we fall into the dark
C                  D
And you can't stop now


G
You never know

If you never learn
D-C
  You never shine

If you never burn
D-Em
  The rising tide

The undertow
G-Am
  The venom and

The overflow
          Cadd9
You turn away
C            
Welcome home

G   D-C   D-Em   G-Am   Am-Cadd9   C

G   D-C   D-Em   G-Am   Am-Cadd9   C   G
