Capo 1

[Intro] Em C G D x2


[Chorus]

 Em
Jerusalem, if I forget you,
C
 Fire not gonna come from me tongue.
  G
Jerusalem, if I forget you,
D
Let my right hand forget what it's supposed to do


[Verse]

       Em
In the ancient days, we will return with no delay
C
Picking up the bounty and the spoils on our way
G
We've been traveling from state to state
         D
And them don't understand what they say
Em
3,000 years with no place to be
         C
And they want me to give up my milk and honey
          G
Don't you see, it's not about the land or the sea
        D
Not the country but the dwelling of his majesty


[Chorus] x2

 Em
Jerusalem, if I forget you,
C
 Fire not gonna come from me tongue.
  G
Jerusalem, if I forget you,
D
Let my right hand forget what it's supposed to do


[Verse]

Em
Rebuild the temple and the crown of glory
C
Years gone by, about sixty
        G
We were burned in the oven in this century
        D
And the gas tried to choke, but it couldn't choke me
       Em
I will not lie down, I will not fall asleep
        C  
So they come overseas, yes they're trying to be free
 G
Erase the demons out of our memory
 D
Change your name and your identity
  Em
Afraid of the truth and our dark history
C
Why is everybody always chasing we
G
Cut off the roots of your family tree
D
Don't you know that's not the way to be


[Chorus]

 Em
Jerusalem, if I forget you,
C
 Fire not gonna come from me tongue.
  G
Jerusalem, if I forget you,
D
Let my right hand forget what it's supposed to do


[Verse]

Em
Caught up in these ways, and the worlds gone craze
G
Don't you know it's just a phase, cause of the Simon says
   Bm
If I forget the truth then my words won't penetrate
        F#m
Babylon burning in the place, can't see through the haze
Em
Chop down all of them dirty ways,
           G
That's the price that you pay for selling lies to the youth
   Bm
No way, not ok, oh 
   F#m
No way, not ok, hey


Em
Aint no one gonna break my stride
C                         G
Aint no one gonna pull me down       x2
         D
Oh no, I got to keep on moving


[Chorus] x2

 Em
Jerusalem, if I forget you,
C
 Fire not gonna come from me tongue.
  G
Jerusalem, if I forget you,
D
Let my right hand forget what it's supposed to do


[Outro]

  Em         C
Jerusalem If I forget You
  G          D
Jerusalem If I forget You
  Em         C
Jerusalem If I forget You
  G          D
Jerusalem If I forget You

Em C G D
