Runrig - Saints Of The Soil        1993         https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EMCnRmvLdmg

   [Intro]
A   D   A    E
A   D   Bm   D   A   A
A   D   A    E
A   D   Bm   D   A   A

   [Verse 1]
A                  
Walking out on the revelation trail
A              Bm E
Going nowhere slowly
A
In the face of a terminal wind
       D                   Bm  E
I look over my shoulder to glory
   A
For all that around me is lost and changed
    D                          Bm       E
The moon and the stars and the feelings remain
A                    F#m
As long as I draw emotion in breath
       Bm                 E
I will never forget, I'll never forget

   [Bridge]
    A
The light of the world keeps shining
D                     E
Bright in the primal glow
A                        D
Bridging the living dust to dust
       Bm               E
Such a long long way to go

  [Link]
A   D   A    E
A   D   Bm   D   A   A

   [Verse 2]
A
Going down to the memory well
A              Bm  E
No romance, no warning
A
Breaking the land with the saints of your soil
       D                     Bm  E
In the light of all constant dawning
   A
I'm held in the grasp of the blessed and the old
    D                              Bm     E
The hand that civilization's forgotten to hold
A                   F#m
Rushing onwards, racing in chains
       Bm              E
I'm chasing the days, chasing the days

   [Bridge]
    A
The light of the world keeps shining
D                     E
Bright in the primal glow
A                        D
Bridging the living dust to dust
       Bm               E
Such a long long way to go

  [Link]
A   D   A    E
A   D   Bm   D   A   A


   [Chorus]
A                  D
Saints of the soil

Saints of the soil

Saints of the soil
Bm   D   A   

   [Verse 3]
E                             E7           E
I see you laughing 'round the fires of harvest
E                       E7        E
Flame grabbing and your arms entwined
E                       E7      E
Dying tribe take a righteous glance
       Bm                          E
To the sharing days and the common wine

   [Bridge]
    A
The light of the world keeps shining
D                     E
Bright in the primal glow
A                        D
Bridging the living dust to dust
       Bm               E
Such a long long way to go

   [Verse 4]
A
There's a shrine on an Assynt hillside
A                           Bm   E
It's made of earth and salt and rain
A
Now you walk out in the morning
     D                 Bm  E      E
With your sacrifice of change

   [Link]
A   D   A   E
A   D   Bm   D   A   A

   [Chorus]
A                  D
Saints of the soil
A                  E
Saints of the soil
A                  D
Saints of the soil
Bm   D   A   E

   [Chorus]  
A                  D
Saints of the soil
A                  E
Saints of the soil
A                  D
Saints of the soil
Bm   D   A   E

   [Outro]
A   D   A    E
A   D   Bm   D   A   A
