Song: A Leader On Losing Control
Band: Corb Lund and the Hurtin' Albertans
Album: Horse Soldier! Horse Soldier!
Label: Stony Plain Records
Written By: Corb Lund
Tabbed/Chorded By: ultimatelefty

Here's another good one by Corb, a western sounding war tune, 
and a very good one at that! Hopefully most of it is correct,
the solo was a bit tricky but I think I got the jist of it.
Anyways, as always, please rate, comment, and enjoy!

Verse 1:

       Am
Well I tried my best to stop them, 

yes I tried to make them wait.
      G
And I appealed to their decency, 

show mercy on this day.
  F
I issued them strong orders,

on pain of death and dissaray.
           E
But in the end they would not listen, 

they raised their lances anyway.

Verse 2:

Am
Men of no account, they were, 

their breeding crude and low.
     G
With not a trace of wisdom, grace, 

or virtue in their souls.
    F
Yet trained them long and hard I did,

to bend them to the crown.
   E
To act as tools of justice,

follow edict handed down.

Verse 3:

             Am
Well you see these were not militia men,

a-fighting for their homes.
    G
Nor fathers, sons, nor husbands, sire, 

but foreigners on loan.
    F
Yet mercinary killers 

career soldiers to a man.
        E
Lashing out with vengeance 

one can not except or understand.

Verse 4:

             Am
Well I could not instill the discipline,

'twas duty to inspire.
           G
And they responded in the end

to instincts of the basest kind.
    F
Now on my knee before you,

here I dry my eyes in shame.
       E
albeit little consolation,

take my head for I'm to blame.
