[Verse 1]

C
We built our home out on the slopes,
Am
Pompeii beneath she lay above,
G
How she haunted our home,
F
How she haunted our home.

C
You were a God in my eyes,
Am
Above the clouds above the skies,
G
You were a God in my eyes,
F
You were a God.

C
You took me walking through the town
Am
Showed me the statues underground,
G
Said, "just don't they look at peace,"
F
Sometimes I wish that was me.

C
I was the son you always had,
Am
Tugging at your coat while you were sad,
G
I was the son you always had,
F
I was the son you always had.


[Chorus]

C
Just don't cry,
Am
Hold your head up high,
G
She would want you to,
F
She would want you to.

C
Please just don't cry,
Am
Hold your head up high,
G
She would want you to, 
F
She would want you to.

(this chord pattern continues for the rest of the song)


[Verse 2]
(same as verse 1)

You said stay in the car and wait,
There's just some things I have to say,
Don't you know I miss her too,
I miss her just as much as you.

So my father and my son,
As you end what you've begun,
You'll lie patient by her side,
With roses red and lilies white.

I was too young to understand,
The flowers slipping from your hand,
I was too young to understand,
I was too young to understand.

I was too young to understand,
The flowers sleeping in your hand,
I was too young to understand,
I was too young to understand.


[Chorus]
(same chords)

Oh please just don't cry, 
Hold your head up high,
She would want you to,
She would want you to.


[Outro]
(same chords)

And just don't cry,
Hold your head up high,
She would want you to,
She would want you to.

The progression is really G-Am-Em-C, and capo on 7th/9th. This is how they usually play it.

Lack of accuracy. Capo 9 with different chords, as seen on the video clip. sounds right but not played correctly. peace 19 20
