Up-rising, from the claws of the wicked.

Two bulls can't reign in one pen,
    Bm                    Em        F#
Two lions can't roar in a small den.
    Bm                           Em        F#
Two scorpions don't sting at the same spot,
    Bm                  Em          F#
Two guns can't fire the same bullet shot, so;

Two kings don't wear the same crown,

Two beauties don't have the same gown on.
   Bm                    Em         F#m
To-morrow is too late to leave town,
Bm
 If you're still here at noon,
                              Em        F#m
There'll be one big, big, big showdown, so;

Up-rising, upri-sing,
   Bm      Em   F#
Up-rising, upri-sing.

F#m               Bm
 I give you 'till noon to go,
F#m                 Bm
 On your way to sur-vival, where;
F#m                        Bm
 Your heart will beat more fonder with life,
F#m                           Bm
 And breath still enters your body.

 So run and hide before I find you,
Bm                        Em       F#
 Woe betide if I catch up on you.
Bm                      Em      F#
 If you still coming; I box you down,

 If you still coming; I clart you down.
