“We Are Alive”
By Bruce Springsteen

Capo 5  /  Intro  G  C  G  /  G  C  D
                  D  C  G / G  C  D

G                                C       G        
There is a cross up yonder up on Calvary Hill
G                              C      D
There is a slip of blood on a silver knife
           C              G        
There is a graveyard kid  Down below
G                          D
Where at night did come to life
    C                     G        
And above the stars, they crackle in fire
G                         C     D
A dead man's moon throws seven rings
          C                  G        
Well, we put our ears to the cold grave stones
G                       D
This is the song they'd sing
       C   G        
WE ARE ALIVE…   
G                                    C      D
And though our bodies lie alone here in the dark
            C    G                                    C 
OUR SPIRITS RISE….    To carry the fire and light the spark
         G                        D       
To stand shoulder to shoulder and HEART…    TO HEART …

 G C G / G C D / D C G / G C D
(Whistle………….)

                         G                     C  G
A voice cried out, I was killed in Maryland in 1877
                          C    Am    D
When the railroad workers made their stand
        C             G                          Am       D
Well, I was killed in 1963 one Sunday morning in Birmingham
        C                           G
Well, I died last year crossing the southern desert
                           Am  D
My children left behind in San Pablo
          C               G
Well they left our bodies here to rot
                   D            
Oh please let them know…   
       C   G
WE ARE ALIVE…  
                                 C  Am  D
Oh, and though we lye alone here in the dark
               C  G                                    
OUR SOULS WILL RISE…
                                C
To carry the fire and light the spark
         G                        D                 
To fight shoulder to shoulder and HEART…   TO HEART…

G C G / G C D / D C G / G C D x2
(Whistle………….)

         C                     D            G
Let your mind rest easy, sleep well my friend
              C                            D
It's only our bodies that betray us in the end
  G                     C        G
I awoke last night in a dark and dreamy deep
                                            D
From my head to my feet, my body gone stone cold
           C              G
There were worms crawling all around me
                                         Am       D
Fingers scratching at an earth black and six foot low
    C                      G
And alone in the blackness of my grave
                       D
Alone I'd been LEFT TO DIE
       C                    G         
Then I heard voices calling all around me
                                             D
The earth rose above me, my eyes filled with sky
       C   G        
WE ARE ALIVE…
                                     C  Am  D
And though our bodies lie alone here in the dark
                      C  G
OUR SOULS and SPIRITS RISE…
                                C
To carry the fire and light the spark
         G                        D        C      G
To fight shoulder to shoulder and HEART TO HEART…   
         C           G            D        C      G
To stand shoulder to shoulder and HEART TO HEART…  
       C    G
WE ARE ALIVE

I'd be more than happy if you post it as a separate version. I admit,I haven't played it at all since the days when it was posted. It does look like your version is better, so ...
