Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
//Standard Tuning-- GCEA//
*Can be easily transposed but the plucking portion is meant to be in the key of C.
**You can also substitute any 3's on the C string to a 0 on the A string-- this may help 
simplify the actual plucking, but it does spread it out across all 4 strings.

Verse:
C
Must it take a life for hateful eyes
Am
To glisten once again
F
Five hundred years like Gelignite
Am                   G
Have blown us all to hell
C
What savior rests while on his cross we die
Am
Forgotten freedom burns
F
Has the Shepard led his lambs astray
Am                   G
to the bigot and the gun

F                               C
Must it take a life for hateful eyes
F                G
To glisten once again
         C        F            Am        F
Cause we find ourselves in the same old mess
        C       G    C
Singin' drunken lullabies

C
I watch and stare as Rosin`s eyes
Am
Turn a darker shade of red
F
And the bullet with this sniper lie
Am                      G
In their bloody gutless cell
C
Must we starve on crumbs from long ago
Am
Through these bars of men made steel
F
Is it a great or little thing we fought
Am                              G
Knelt the conscience blessed to kill

F                       C
Must it take a life for hateful eyes
F                G
To glisten once again
         C       F             Am        F
Cause we find ourselves in the same old mess
        C       G    C
Singin' drunken lullabies

        F              G         C
Ah, but maybe it`s the way we're taught
   F              G      C
Or maybe it`s the way we fought
      F           G             C        F
But a smile never grins without tears to begin
         F         G          C
For each kiss is a cry we all lost
       F               C
Though nothing left to gain
            F                      G
But for the banshee that stole the grave
         C       F             Am
Cause we find ourselves in the same old mess
        C       G    C
Singin' drunken lullabies

C
I sit in and dwell on faces past
Am
Like memories seem to fade
F
No colour left but black and white
Am                     G
And soon will all turn grey
C
But may these shadows rise to walk again
Am
With lessons truly learnt
F
When the blossom flowers in each our hearts
Am                     G
Shall beat a new found flame


F                       C
Must it take a life for hateful eyes
F                G
To glisten once again
         C       F             Am        F
Cause we find ourselves in the same old mess
        C       G    C
Singin' drunken lullabies
         C       F             Am        F
Cause we find ourselves in the same old mess
        C       G    C
Singin' drunken lullabies
        C       G    C
Singin' drunken lullabies
