"There Will Be A Reckoning" - Billy Bragg - Tooth And Nail - 2013
                  Transcribed by wranglingoutlaw

Capo - 3

Intro - | Em G | D   | 
        | Em G | D...|

(palm mute)
Em           *            G    ( * Walkup to G on 6th string )
Somewhere between the midnight
D                      Bm
And the cold and empty dawn
Em                    G
I found myself out walking
D                         Bm
On the streets where I was born
Em                 G
And I came upon a stranger
D                    Bm
Who looked Me in the face
Em                      G
And asked Me what I was doing
       D             Bm
In this god forsaken place

(play open)
 C/G                                G               Em
I don't need to be forgiven For something I haven't done
      D                                Em
No forewarning my family To find their place in the sun
  C/B                        G                Em
If you keep this pressure on Just don't be surprised
         D                                   Bm                   
If I can't summon up My dignity While You're roughing up My pride

D D      Bm   Bm   Em            
   There will be a reckoning
C/G         G          D
   For the peddlers of hate,
    Em           C/G          G         D
Who spread their poison all across this estate
      Em        C/B             G         D
And a reckoning too, for the politicians who
 A               C
Left Us to this fate
                  Em      G      D
There will be a reckoning

| Em  G | D . . . |

(palm mute)
Em               G        D             Bm
Just a few days later, a man came to My door
  Em             G
To ask Me if I thought that
     D                        Bm
This place was worth fighting for
        Em                  G
And though I recognize his reasons
D                Bm
I just could not agree
    Em                    G       
When they told me that My neighbor
D           Bm
Would be My enemy

(play open)
 C/G                                G
I don't need to be forgiven For something I haven't done
      D                                Em
No forewarning my family To find Their place in the sun
  C/B                        G           
If You keep this pressure on Just don't be surprised
         D                                   Em          
If I can't summon up my dignity While You're roughing up My pride

 Bm              Em            
There will be a reckoning
C/G         G          D
   For the peddlers of hate,
    Em           C/G          G         D
Who spread their poison all across this estate
      Em        C/B             G           D
And a reckoning too, for the politicians who
 A               C
Left us to this fate
                  Em      G      D
There will be a reckoning
                  Em      G      D
There will be a reckoning
                  Em      G      D
There will be a reckoning
                  Em    
There will be a reckoning

Very relevant song for today. Great tab - I sent a couple minor changes (I'm pretty sure they're correct but please verify), otherwise it's spot on.
