D   D   D   D

   [Verse 1]
A             D                A       G
I´ve seen the sunlight shining on the valley 
A             D               A     G
I´ve seen the shadows darken on the deep 
A             D                A        G
I´ve seen the young men riding out for glory
    Em     A   D       A  G
And broken in defeat
   [Verse 2]
A            D               A       G
There was an hour that never knew a gloaming
A            D                A   G
The whole of life, enchanted in a day
A            D              A      G
And we´ll be there, forever in the places
      Em   A     D     A  G
Where we used to be

   [Verse 3]
A              D            A           G
I see the hedgerows, moving through the orchards
A           D                   A       G
Through the bocàge and breaking out for Caen
A        D               A      G
Dealing fear and all our dices loaded
         Em       A      D    Dsus4
With the courage of the dawn

     Bm                A         D
And some will rise and some will fall
    G       Bm       Em      A
To gain the world or lose it all
     Bm               Em       G
And that time was mine to hear you
          A       A7sus4
when you called
    Bm                  A         D
You were our youngest, brightest flower
    G        Bm                  Em      A
Walking side by side through our darkest hour
      Bm        Em        G        A        A7sus4
We´ll take this cup, this portion evermore

   [Verse 4]
A              D                 A      G
I´ve seen the last wave breaking on the beaches
A              D               A   G
I´ve seen the angels crying on the wire
A             D                 A        G
I´ve seen the first star up and brightly shining
         Em   A     D        A   G
Couldn´t rise much higher

   [Verse 5]
A         D                A   A7  G
Now we´re waiting here not getting older
A       A7  D                 A    G 
But we can dream like we can not believe
A    A7        D                  A  A7    G
With all those fools, those great historic moments
          Em  A   D      Dsus4
That flatter do deceive.

   [Chorus 2]
    Bm                  A        D
And some will come and some will go
    G      Bm       Em       A
To rise on wings in skies of gold
      Bm        Em     G       Em      A    Asus4
Or to fall down to the final, silent cold
     Bm                    A   D
When I was young it burned so bright
     G   Bm        Em   A
The only son, a rising Christ
     Bm       Em          G          Em    A     Asus4
Now I´m left here in the fall-out of that life

   [Outro to fade]
Bm  G  D  A            Bm    G    D   A
          The rise and fall
Bm  G  D  A            Em   Em7  A      
          The rise and fall
Bm  G  D  A            Bm    G    D   A
          The rise and fall
Bm  G  D  A            Em   Em7  A      
          The rise and fall
