Capo1 
 
C F C F 
 
        C 
We were young and bound for glory  
        F 
Itchin' for a fight like you  
         G 
Bringin' hell and purgatory  
       Em 
To the boys who wore the Blue  
      F                   G 
And I thought I'd seen it all  
         Em                 Am 
Till the day night wouldn't fall  
           F 
Oh how the sun did blaze  
            G 
Wouldn't go down for days.  
 
      C 
I got shot and lost my rifle  
         F 
When the first wave hit the rise  
        G 
And the guns rolled out like thunder  
        Em 
And the black smoke burned my eyes  
      F                G 
And I watched it all unfold  
         Em            Am 
Just the way the Bible told  
         F 
Joshua's endless day  
            G 
Keepin' the night at bay. 
  
        Am 
And the soldiers kept a comin'  
        F 
Til the ground looked like a sea  
            G 
Of Blue and Grey  
      Am 
And I watched it from a distance  
          F                            G 
Wonderin' if I would've fought, or run away. 
  
Chorus: 
                      C 
The Day The Sun Stood Still 
                         G 
How they beat the bloody drums  
                           Am 
And the seconds moved like hours  
                     F 
But the sunset never comes  
                          C 
And the cannons shake the ground  
                          G 
And the bullets test your will  
                      Am 
Even shadows found no cover  
                    F 
On that Godforsaken hill  
    G                 C      F                   
The Day The Sun Stood Still. 
 
      C 
And I watched them lean their shoulders  
To the fearful hail of lead  
      G 
And I prayed for night to save us  
      Em 
And I cried and bowed my head  
        F               G 
But the sun just kept a-creepin' 
        Em               Am 
Cross a cold indifferent sky  
          F 
Castin' a deadly glow  
           G 
On all the men below.  
 
        Am 
All the hours in a lifetime 
          F                               G 
Don't add up to one while minute, in that s-un 
        Am 
And the heroes and the cowards  
         F                                  G 
Look the same when they have fallen, by the gun.  
 
Chorus2: 
                      C 
The Day The Sun Stood Still 
                               G 
And the North and South looked west  
                         Am 
But the evening star was sleepin? 
                          F 
And the daylight wouldn't rest  
                   C 
Out on the killin? floor  
                   G 
The red sun on the hill  
                        Am 
Shinin' down on all the dead men  
                         F 
With a strange and eerie chill 
    G                 C 
The Day The Sun Stood Still. 
 
Bb                     F 
Do not judge, what you brother does  
C 
Till you've walked a mile  
G 
Rank by bloody file  
Bb                      F                G 
Who's to say, if you'll run or stay, and f-ight.  
 
Chrous3: 
                      C 
The Day The Sun Stood Still 
                    G 
Is just beneath the skin  
                     Am 
In the soul of every soldier 
                       F 
Every battle that he's in  
                      C 
The Day The Sun Stood Still 
                          G 
Will haunt your dreams at night  
                     Am 
And stalk your every sunrise  
                            F 
Though you will not know it till 
    G                 C 
The Day The Sun Stood Still.  
 
                         G 
How they beat the bloody drums  
                           Am 
And the seconds moved like hours  
                     F 
But the sunset never comes  
                          C 
And the cannons shake the ground  
                          G 
And the bullets test your will  
                      Am 
Even shadows found no cover  
                    F 
On that Godforsaken hill  
    G                 C      F                   
The Day The Sun Stood Still. 
 
                      C     F 
The Day The Sun Stood Still 
                      C     F  
The Day The Sun Stood Still 
                      C 
The Day The Sun Stood Still.
