Traditional English Song, always played in finale at Last Night of the Proms.

6 STRING OR 12  SIMPLE STRUM

[verse 1]
G             Em      C       G 
And did those feet in ancient time
C         G         Am   Em    C 
walk upon England's moun-tains green
     G       Em   Bm      Em 
And was the Holy Lamb of God
    Bm        Em       Bm A      D   
on England's pleasant pa-stures seen 

     D       Am     Dm    Am 
And did the counte-nance divine
               C      F      C 
shine forth upon our clouded hills
         Am     D   D7      G 
And was Jerusa lem builded here 
 Em   C     G    C  G  D   G 
among those dark sa-ta-nic mills

 G           Em     C       G 
Bring me my bow of burnished gold
       C     G      Am Em C 
Bring me my arrows of de-sire
       G     Em       Bm     Em 
Bring me my spear! O Clouds unfold
       Bm    Em  Bm   A  D   
Bring me my cha riot of fire 
 
  D        Am         Dm     Am 
I will not cease from mental fight
              C           F     C 
nor shall my sword sleep in my hand
              Am    D7    G 
'til we have built Jerusa-lem
    Em  C      G     C   G   D    G 
in Eng land's green and pleasant land
