Glenn Tipton - Left For Dead (Written by Tipton)
Album: Baptizm of Fire (1997)
http://www.glenntipton.co.uk/

Transcribed by Jon Malmin (jogusmal@hotmail.com)
Tuning: Standard E

The nice closer from Glenn's solo album.
Here's the little banjo melody which can
be heard in the beginning and end of the song.

G
You can live your life of ease 
If you obey the hierarchy 
   C
I never could see, I never knew why 
G
I shouldn't stand and speak my mind 
You keep your mouth shut and you're okay 
You get to live through one more day 
      C
But I had to say this 
And I had to say that 
         G
And they stuck a knife right in my back 

D
Closed the lid to bury me 
    C
But while there's still a breath of life in me 

G
Left me for dead 
                       C
But there's no way that I 
              G
Will ever give in 
I will survive 

G
Traitors prosper, rebels die 
And then they say he was no friend of mine 
     C
Oh, I never say no when I want to say yes 
G
I never go along and vote for the obvious 
Just because of my 
Point of view 
My expiry date's long overdue 
       C
Oh you never can tell what's going on in their minds 
                 G
They write your death warrant 
But return your smile

D 
While there's still a breath in me 
   C
I will not lie down 
They won't get me 

(Chorus)

G D F      G    D  G
.........I will survive!

(Solo section; just strum G chords throughout) 

D
While there's still a breath in me 
   C
I won't lie down 
They won't get me 

(Repeat chorus till the end)


Have fun!

Thank you, but there´s a mistake on the little banjo intro:
instead of the two last notes, it goes like this:
the 4 is on the D string
and the 0 is on the G string.
