Intro: Em D

Em                              C
Smoke hangs on the city like it always used to be.
Em                         D
While the first leaves are falling from the trees.
Em            C
Mother looks, like she always did,
       G                       D
as the earth falls down on the coffin lid.

Em                       C
Later she's watching the pictures of her son,
    Em                D
and asks herself, how life is going on.
Em                  C
Father's wiping the tears from his eyes.
G                      D
Too many questions are missing replies.

    Bm                Em             Bm                      D
The paving stones are full of blood, spilled in all of those years.
    Bm            Em                 G       C       D
The difference in praying to god has built a wall of tears.

G    D   C                         D
Take me high above, high above the sky.
G    D  C                            D
Take me high above, 13 years are too young,
             Em
too young to die.

Em                        C
Now she's sharing so many women's fate.
Em                       D
The soldier who shot has got his parade.
Em              C
Nothing changes at this bloody place.
       G                             D
Tomorrow they're standing on another one's grave.

Em                          C
And smoke hangs on the city like it always used to be.
Em                        D
While the last leaves are falling from the trees.
Em            C
Mother looks, like she always did,
       G                       D
as the earth falls down on the coffin lid.

    Bm                Em             Bm                      D
The paving stones are full of blood, spilled in all of those years.
    Bm            Em                 G       C       D
The difference in praying to god has built a wall of tears.

G    D   C                         D
Take me high above, high above the sky.
G    D  C                            D
Take me high above, 13 years are too young,
             Em
too young to die.

Spoken:
On the 30th of january 1972 soldiers shot into a crowd of men, women and children,
who were marching to Londonderry peacefully fighting for their civil rights as a religious minority.
14 people were killed on that bloody Sunday.
On the 4th of October 1976 two british patrols shot into a group of playing children in Turf Lodge,
Belfast, Northern Ireland. Brian Stewart was hit by a plastic bullet from a distance of only two meters.
Brian Stewart died just six days later at the age of thirteen!

G    D   C                         D
Take me high above, high above the sky.
G    D  C                            D
Take me high above, 13 years are too young,
             Em
too young to die.
