Title: "The Lightning Storm"
Artist: Flogging Molly
Album: Float (2008)
Tabbed by Justin Shaffer (shaffj9086@clarkstate.edu)
Notes: The only other tab that currently exists for this song is missing the intro and 
parts, has a couple of wrong chords, and also has some incorrect lyrics. This is the 
song, and I'm fairly certain that the lyrics and chords are all 100% correct. Enjoy!

Intro:
Am G Am C G Am

Verse 1:
Am               F          C
   This lonely existence paves the way
Am         G                    F
   For the heart of hearts must beat be brave
Am            F          C
   While this quiet lightning storm
Am            G               F
   Wrecks the harvest gold we try to sow

Chorus 1:
          C
And so it begins
    Em                  F
The way the blood still dances
   C
Beneath the skin
       Em             F
As the messenger from Hell says
       C
"We're bound to win"
       G                       F
As the days they come, but the years they go
    Am               F
So take care of your freedom
          C
They'll never know

Interlude:
Am G Am C G Am

Verse 2:
Am              F               C
   I sit on the wing for a blackbird's song
Am            G                   F
   To tell me where and when this all went wrong
Am                F          C
   There's no resolution without remorse
Am                G
   With ignorance bliss defend
       F
"Let's stay the course"

Chorus 2:
         C
Puncture the skin
    Em                F
And see its blood run cold
    C
On desert sand
     Em                F
Come hear the men from mothers
      C
With childless hands
       G                       F
As the days they come, but the years they go
   Am                F
So take care of your freedom
          C
They'll never know
             Am           F
So take good care of your freedom
              Am
They'll never know

Bridge:
F C
Am F C
Am F C
Am F C

Chorus 3:
          C
Take what you give
  Em                  F
Until there's nothing left
       C
But forever live
    Em                F           C
And night descends on shadows without their kill
       G                       F
As the days they come, but the years they go
   Am                F
So take care of your freedom
          C
They'll never know
               Am           F
Yeah take good care of your freedom
              Am
They'll never know

Outro:
Am

        G                       F
But the days they come, but the years they go
        Am           F
So take care of your freedom
              C
They'll never know
