7. One Rode To Asa Bay

intro E F# E F# E F# E F#m
      E F# E F# E F# E D

D    E   F#
One man rode the way through the woods
E    E   D
Down to Asa bay
  D      B              A
Where dragon ships had sailed to sea
        F#                G
More times than one could say
F# A   B
To see with own eyes the wonder
A       G
People told of from man to man
  high E          high D
The God of all almightyness
        C#                  C
Had arrived from a foreign land

D    E   F#
The rumours told of a man
E    E   D
Who had come from the other side the seas
  D      B              A
Carrying gold cross around neck in chain
        F#                G
And spoke in strange tongue of peace
F# A   B
He had come with strange men in armour
A       G
Dressed in purple shirts and lace
       high E            high D
Smelling not of beer but flowers
     C#             C
And with no hair in face

rhythm fill: F# D E D E F# E D E A
E F# D E D H E

E F# E F# E ... D

E F#
And the bold man carrying cross
Had told all one of Asa bay
E F#
The God of all man woman child had come
     E       D
To them all save
E F#
And to thank Lord of Heaven
One should build to God a house
E F#
And to save one's soul from Hell
                    E           D       (...E D)
One should be baptised and say vows

E       C#
A man of pride with the Hammer told new God
To build his house on own
And spoke loud of the Gods of their fathers
G#    E          D
Not too long time gone
E       C#
The rumours said the man with a beard like fire
And the Hammer in chain
By men in armour silenced was and by
G#    E          D
Their swords was slain

E F#
Those who did not pay the one coin
Of four to man of new God
E F#
Whipped was twenty and put in chains then locked
        E F#              E D
By their neck to the log (To the log...)
E F#
And so all of Asa bay did build
A house of the cross
E F#
Every hour of daylight they did sweat
        E F#                   E D    ...E D
Limbs ached because faith does cost

Solo: E F#

End: E D

E F#...
And on the day two hundred
There it stood white to the sky
The house of the God of the cross       E D
Big enough to take two dragon ships inside
And all of Asa bay did watch
The wonder raise to the sky
Now must the God of the cross be pleased
And satisfied

Intro again: E F#...

E F#...
Just outside the circle of the crowd
One old man did stand
He looked across the waters
And blotted the sun out of his eyes with one hand
And his old eyes could almost see
The dragon ships set sail
And his old ears could almost hear
Men of great numbers call out Oden's hail

E F#...
And though he did know already
Though he turned face towards sky
And whispered silent words forgotten
Spoken only way up high
Now this house of a foreign God does stand
Now must they leave us alone
E F#
Still he heard from somewhere in the woods
                    E (hold)
Old crow of wisdom say                  F#
...people of Asa land, it's only just begun...

pre outro: E F#

rhythm fill: F# D. E ...

outro E. F#

I think the H's are supposed to be B's...

Well, in Germany we use H instead of B. It's the same thing May get to change it sometimes soon.
