C G I pledge allegiance to our countrymen Am our country it is safe again as we safely go to bed at night C G in our warm nests N.C. I sing my song Am I have been this place before Dm Am as I spoke on to the children Dm Am my hands they seem to tremble C G Am the closer I get Am I'm a very stupid man Dm Am and I'll lead them to the slaughter Dm Am C G Am save the son and daughter of our failing every-man Am our love is a love that gives Dm Am but the price it is uncertain Dm Am and the way it is so dangerous C G Am to those of little bread Am and I wash my hands clean Dm Am in the waters of optimism Dm Am C G Am contaminating pearls with eagles sacrifice my friends C G Am eagles sacrifice C G Am eagles sacrifice my fiends C G Am eagles sacrifice Dm sleep sweet countrymen Am till we need you again C we will raise our arms G against the face of horror Dm and I will fight and feed Am oh in the name of need C get on your battered knees G Am and please don't make a sound Am the soldiers are asleep Dm Am in the holy land of questions Dm Am the most important lesson: C G Am they get out alive Am and I call out to the parson Dm Am he waves his hands against me Dm Am my countrymen like Christians C G Am with the li-ons around Am and I call out to the general Dm Am and his most vital position Dm Am as the king of isolation C G Am in this land of suicides Am and I call out to the maidens Dm Am who wear the pelts of jackals Dm Am and little less but shackles C G Am fill our lust-filled appetites, my friends C G Am our lust-filled appetites C G Am our lust-filled appetites, my friends C G Am our lust-filled appetites Dm this sweet countrymen Am is where our paths will end C your duties pair adjust G my duties what I must Dm only I think of you Am in what I have to do C I'll burn the chapel house G and make attempts of truce Dm and I don't live a gifted life Am I'll hoist your flag and make it mine C against the wall that's closing tight G I'll send your wounded down the line Dm oh I will count the ways Am oh each and every day C G Am 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 C so please G rise for the very honored judge Am the jury has you to appeal Am we'll make this gallow pole your home C we'll make our motives very clear (other lyrics for round, over previous verse) I will fall into the depths of hell before I sail this ship a port forget about the house of god and go away this house of fear as the saints go marching in I know I want more gin to think and if I die before I wake I bet you are my sin to take END: Dm Am C G sleep sweet countrymen Dm Am oh my country-men C G sleep sweet countrymen Dm Am oh my country-men C G sleep sweet countrymen Dm Am oh my country-men C sleep sweet country G Am sleep sweet country-men http://www.reverendglasseye.com/http://www.reverendglasseye.com/ “Sleep Sweet Countrymen” By Reverend Glasseye from the album ‘Our Lady of the Broken Spine’ tabbed by Eric Bonkowski - great great song. lyrics transcribed by ear, so some my be a bit off.
