Really good song, straight from the book.


   C            G           Am
Listen children to a story that was written long ago
  F            C              Dm             G7
Bout a kingdom on a mountain and the valley folk below.
 C               G               Am
On the mountain was a treasure buried deep beneath a stone
 F               C                  Dm                G    C
And the valley people swore they'd have it for their very own.

 C                     Em       F                      C
Go ahead and hate you neighbor, go ahead and cheat a friend.
                       Em       F
Do it in the name of heaven. Justify it in the end.
                              Em     F                 C
There won't be any trumpets blowin' come the judgment day.
                      F                 Am    G7    C
On the bloody morning after, one tin soldier rides away.


So the people of the valley sent a message up the hill
Asking for the buried treasure tons of gold for which they'd kill.
Came an answer from the kingdom "With our brothers we will share
All the secrets of our mountain, all the riches buried there."



Now the valley cried with anger mount your horses draw your sword
And they killed the mountain people so they won their just reward.
Now they stood beside the treasure on the mountain, dark and red
Turned the stone and looked beneath it "Peace on earth" was all it said.

I must be the only one else that appreciates this song. Nice job, but there seem like a few very minor omissions. Ie.,
in the verse where it ends "long ago" and then "beneath a stone", I think it needs an Em, following the Am.
Also, I think you just forget a C in the chorus that ends with the line "justified in the end"
I think the Dm sounds a little bit off, but it does work, and I cannot figure what it may be otherwise.
I do love the song, and the effort you put into tabbing this great song. Thank you so much!
