Capo 2.


[Intro]

G   Em   C   G
G   Em   C   G   G D Em D C G


[Verse 1]

G                     Em           C         G
There's a blood red circle on the cold dark ground
             D   Em  D   C  G
And the rain is falling down
                        Em           C               G
The church doors thrown open I can hear the organ's song
            D Em  D     C  G
But the congregation's gone


[Chorus]

             Em  C  G
My city of ruins
             Em  C  G
My city of ruins


[Verse 2]

G                       Em                      C       G
Now the sweet veils of mercy drift through the evening trees
                        D    Em         D      C     G
Young men on the corner like scattered leaves
                 Em           C        G
The boarded up windows, the empty streets
                   D    Em       D   C  G
While my brother's down on his knees


[Chorus]

                Em    C  G
My city of ruins
                Em    C  G
My city of ruins


[Bridge]

        Em   C             D   G
Come on rise up!  Come on rise up!
        Em   C             D   G
Come on rise up!  Come on rise up!
        Em   C             D   G
Come on rise up!  Come on rise up!
          D Em  D C  G
Come on ri--------se up

(repeat intro)


[Verse 3]

G                       Em               C       G
Now there's tears on the pillow darling where we slept
                D    Em         D    C       G
And you took my heart when you left
                       Em          C         G
Without your sweet kiss my soul is lost, my friend
                  D    Em     D    C    G
Now tell me how do I begin again?


[Chorus]

            Em    C  G
My city's in ruins
            Em    C  G
My city's in ruins


[Verse 4]

G               Em      C          G
Now with these hands,  with these hands
G           Em      C          G
With these hands,  with these hands
(I pray Lord)
G           Em      C          G
With these hands,  with these hands
(I pray for the strength Lord)
With these hands,  with these hands
(I pray for the faith Lord)
With these hands,  with these hands
(I pray for Your love Lord)
With these hands,  with these hands
(I pray for the lost Lord)
With these hands,  with these hands
(I pray for the world Lord)
With these hands,  with these hands


[Outro]

        Em   C             D   G
Come on rise up!  Come on rise up!
        Em   C             D   G
Come on rise up!  Come on rise up!
        Em   C             D   G
Come on rise up!  Come on rise up!
        Em   C             D   G
Come on rise up!  Come on rise up!
          D Em  D C  G
Come on ri--------se up
