[Verse]
G
Must it take a life for hateful eyes
Em
To glisten once again
C
Five hundred years like Gelignite
Em                   D
Have blown us all to hell
G
What savior rests while on his cross we die
Em
Forgotten freedom burns
C
Has the Shepard led his lambs astray
Em                   D
to the bigot and the gun

[Chorus]
C                               G
Must it take a life for hateful eyes
C                D
To glisten once again
         G        C            Em
Cause we find ourselves in the same old mess
        G       D    G
Singin' drunken lullabies

[Verse]
G
I watch and stare as Rosin`s eyes
Em
Turn a darker shade of red
C
And the bullet with this sniper lie
Em                      D
In their bloody gutless cell
G
Must we starve on crumbs from long ago
Em
Through these bars of men made steel
C
Is it a great or little thing we fought
Em                              D
Knelt the conscience blessed to kill

[Chorus]
C                       G
Must it take a life for hateful eyes
C                D
To glisten once again
         G       C             Em
Cause we find ourselves in the same old mess
        G       D    G
Singin' drunken lullabies

[Bridge]
        C              D         G
Ah, but maybe it`s the way we're taught
   C              D      G
Or maybe it`s the way we fought
      C           D             G        C
But a smile never grins without tears to begin
         C         D          G
For each kiss is a cry we all lost
       C               G
Though nothing left to gain
            C                      D
But for the banshee that stole the grave
         G       C             Em
Cause we find ourselves in the same old mess
        G       D    G
Singin' drunken lullabies

[Verse]
G
I sit in and dwell on faces past
Em
Like memories seem to fade
C
No colour left but black and white
Em                     D
And soon will all turn grey
G
But may these shadows rise to walk again
Em
With lessons truly learnt
C
When the blossom flowers in each our hearts
Em                     D
Shall beat a new found flame

[Chorus]
C                       G
Must it take a life for hateful eyes
C                D
To glisten once again
         G       C             Em
Cause we find ourselves in the same old mess
        G       D    G
Singin' drunken lullabies
         G       C             Em
Cause we find ourselves in the same old mess
        G       D    G
Singin' drunken lullabies
        G       D    G
Singin' drunken lullabies

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought that it was Em rather than E
