Dave Cousins - Beat The Retreat


CAPO: 3rd Fret



[Intro]
D  G   Em   D

[Verse 1]
                 G      Em
The rat race was over
              D
Before it was won
    G         D         E7
And I started walking
                  A
When I could have run
       G                D
Like a child who missed out
     G             D       G
On a Sunday school treat
                   D           G
Now you know how I feel when
             D
I beat the retreat


[Verse 2]
               G         Em
I slept like a soldier
             D
My gun at my side
   G       D        E7
My uniform folded
               A
I wore it with pride
        G           D       G
I could not rest contented
                    D      G
Until I joined the elite
                   D           G
Now you know how I feel when
             D
I beat the retreat


[Instrumental]
G  D  G  D  G  D  G  D


[Verse 3]
                 G        Em
This winter wind brings
                   D
Such a chill to my bones
 G          D        E7
Erect in my memory
                 A
A small cairn of stones
        G           D
So that those from afar
        G               D      G
Can see where our paths meet
                   D           G
Now you know how I feel when
             D
I beat the retreat


[Instrumental]
D  G   Em   D  G   E7   A   G  D   G   D   G   D   G   D


[Verse 4]
                 G          Em
The last post is sounding
                    D
Now it's time to be gone
        G          D         E7
There's no further reason
                 A
For singing this song
    G         D     G
The battle is over
               D      G
I accept the defeat
                   D           G
Now you know how I feel when
             D
I beat the retreat
