 Intro:     C    Em    F    C


C
  Be still
                Em
  And go on to bed
            F               C
  Nobody knows what lies ahead
C
  And life is short
                Em
  To say the least
                F              C
  We're in the belly of the beast

        Am
  Be still
              F     
  Wild and young
C                            G
  Long may your innocence reign
                       Am
  Like shells on the shore
                             F
  And may your limits be unknown
                                C
  And may your efforts be your own
                              G
  If you ever feel you can't take it anymore


Am                F 
  Don't break character
                C      G
  You've got a lot of heart
Am                         Dm
  Is this real or just a dream?
   F             G  Am
  Rise up like the sun
   F          G   Am   G   F
  Labor till the work is done


C
  Be still
                    Em
  One day you'll leave
   F                       C
  Fearlessness on your sleeve
C                                             Em
  When you've come back tell me what did you see
                  F                  C
  Was there something out there for me?

       Am
  Be still
               F
  Close your eyes
C                                G
  Soon enough you'll be on your own
                  Am
  Steady and straight
                                    F
  And if they drag you through the mud
                                     C
  It doesn't change what's in your blood

  Over chains
G
  When they knock you down

 
Am                F 
  Don't break character
                C      G
  You've got a lot of heart
Am                         Dm
  Is this real or just a dream?
C       Em
   Be still
F       C
   Be still
C       Em
   Be still
F       C
   Be still


Am                 F
  Over rock and chain
                C
  Over sunset plain
                  G
  Over trap and snare
                      Am
  When you're in too deep
                     F
  In your wildest dream
                     C
  In your made up scheme
                       G
  When they knock you down
                       Am
  When they knock you down

 
Am                F 
  Don't break character
                C      G
  You've got a lot of heart
Am                         Dm
  Is this real or just a dream?
   F             G  Am
  Rise up like the sun
   F          G   Am   G   F
  Labor till the work is done
   F             G  Am
  Rise up like the sun
   F          G   Am   G   F
  Labor till the work is done
   F             G  Am
  Rise up like the sun
   F          G   Am   G   F
  Labor till the work is done
 
  End on F

might want to transpose it to D# being the starting chord BTW. While listening to the song as youtube being my reference that's what it sounds like.
