Strawbs - The Promised Land

Em  F#7    Em  F#7    Em

[Verse 1]
       Am           Dm
It was early in the morning
        G                 Am
And our ship was still at sea
       F              Dm               F   E7
With a lifetime far behind us, we were free___
       Am                  Dm
We had strong hearts and a faith
       G                   Am
In our good lord's guiding hand
    F              Dm              E7               Am  G  D     Am  G  D
The mist before us cleared, and we saw the promised land_____

[Verse 2]
         Am               Dm
With our brothers and our sisters
        G               Am
We soon forged into the land
         F                Dm             F   E7
Building towns and cities far beyond our dreams__
       Am                 Dm
As the tree which reaches to the sky
    G                   Am
The child who learns to stand
   F             Dm           E7               Am  G  D     Am  G  D
So we had men of vision to create the promised land_____

But the vision soon became
          G                  C
One man's view of wealth and fame
        F               Am             F   E
And the gun became what wisdom used to be
So the struggle had begun
          G              C
Which has never yet been won
         F                 E7              F  G  Am
Hear the people, hear them saying, "Are we free__?"

[Verse 3]
       Am            Dm
So god bless you, my promised land
    G              Am
Let nothing you dismay
        F                    Dm                   F   E7
For the hand that guides our fortunes has strange ways___
    Am                Dm
And when the fight is over
        G              Am
And the judgment is at hand
       F                 Dm              E7                Am  G  D    Am  G  D
Please don't forget your brothers, far beyond the promised land_____
