Song: Sons of Liberty
Artist: Frank Turner
Album: Poetry of the Deed

Tuning: Standard

Note: I think there's something going on in the verses before the D chord goes back to 
the E chord, but I can't quite pin it down.  A-maj just doesn't sound right.

VERSE 1

E                                               D
Once an honest man could go from sunrise to its set
D                                                  E
without encountering agents of his state or government.
E                                                   D
But a sorry cloud of tyranny has fallen across the land,
D                                              E
brought on by the hollow men, who did not understand
E                                                        D
that for centuries our forefathers have fought and often died
D                                                       E
to keep themselves unto themselves, to fight the rising tide,
E                                                       D
and that if in the smallest battles we surrender to the state,
D                                              E
we enter in a darkness whence we never shall escape.

BRIDGE

          F#                   B         E     B     
   A
When they raise their hands up our lives to possess,
F#                    B       E             B        A
to know our souls, to drag us down, we'll resist.

VERSE 2

E                              D
Watt Tyler led the people in 1381
D                                               E
to meet the king at Smithfield and issue this demand:
E                                                    D
that Winchester’s should be the only law across the land,
D                                                     E
the law of old King Alfred's time, of free and honest men.
E                                                             D
Because the people then they understood what we have since forgot:
D                                               E
that governments will only work for its own benefit.
E                                                   D
And I’d rather stand up naked against the elements alone
D                                                 E
than give the hollow men the right to enter in my home.

BRIDGE

          F#                   B         E     B     
   A
When they raise their hands up our lives to possess,
F#                     B     E              B        A
to know our souls, to drag us down, we'll resist.

CHORUS (First two times no guitar, guitar on third and fourth time)

E                            D         A        E
Stand up sons of liberty and fight for what you own.
E                            D            A        E
Stand up sons of liberty and fight, fight for your homes.

OUTRO

E                                                          D
So if ever a man should ask you for your business, or your name,
D                                                           E
tell him to go and fuck himself, tell his friends to do the same.
E                                                              D
Because a man who'd trade his liberty for a safe and dreamless sleep
D                                                      E
doesn't deserve the both of them, and neither shall he keep.
