Bm		  A	  Bm
With all the clarity of dream
			A	Bm
The sky so blue, the grass so green
Bm			   A     Bm
The rank and file and the navy blue
Em			A		F#m      Bm
The deep and strong, the straight and true

Bm		    A		   Bm
The blue line they got the given sign
			    A	      Bm
The belts and boots march forward in time
Bm			  A		Bm
The wood and leather the club and shield
Em			A		F#m      Bm
Swept like a wave across the battlefield

Bm	 	     A		Bm
Now with all the clarity of dream
			A	Bm
The blood so red, the grass so green
			A	Bm
The gleam of spur on chestnut flank
Em	 	A		F#m	Bm
The cavalry did burst upon the ranks

Bm			A	Bm
Oh the iron will and iron hand
		         A	Bm
In england's green and pleasant land
		   A	    Bm
No music for the shameful scene
Em			    A			F#m    Bm
That night they said it had even shocked the queen

Bm			A	Bm
Well alas we've seen it all before
Bm		    A	    Bm
Knights in armour, days of yore
Bm			    A		Bm
The same old fears and the same old crimes
Em			   A	   F#m     Bm
We haven't changed since ancient times


It sounds allright if you just make some fingerplay between the verses and just
simplifies it doing the verses

My suggestion is something like this:

(left hand holds Bm - only right hand fingerplay, keep playing this over 
when you shift the chords, it will sound allright)

e|--------2------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---3-------3---------------------------------------------------------------|
G|------4--4--4--------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------4-----------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---2-----------------------------------------------------------------------|

Well done, but i think my tab sounds clouser to the original:

e|---------------0h2—2h0----|
B|------3-----3-----------3-|
G|------4-----4-------------|
D|--------------------------|
A|---2----------------------|
E|---------2----------------|

...like it´s played four times at the beginning of the song.
