U2 – Van Diemen's Land

Capo 4

Intro

G5      D      A      D      G5-D

Verse


Hold me now, oh hold me now
        D    G5          D     G5  D        

Till this hour has gone around
          Bm   G5         A    Asus4  A

And I'm gone on the rising tide
        F#m                 Bm      G5

For to face Van Diemen's land
        D    A            D     G5  D


It's a bitter pill I swallow here
               D       G5      D     G5  D  



To be rent from one so dear
       Bm        G5      A    Asus4  A      

We fought for justice and not for gain
               F#m                Bm           G5     

But the magistrate sent me away
               D   A        D       G5  D


Now kings will rule and the poor will toil
                D   G5                 D      G5 D

And tear their hands as they tear the soil
               Bm    G5                A      

But a day will come in the dawning age
               F#m                 Bm      G5 

When an honest man sees an honest wage
                D          A      D          G5  D


Hold me now, hold me now
        D  G5         D     G5  D

Till this hour has gone around
          Bm   G5         A   

And I'm gone on the rising tide
        F#m                Bm           G5    

For to face Van Diemen's land
       D     A            D           G5  D

Still the gunman rules and widows pay
A scarlet coat now a black beret
They thought that blood and sacrifice
Could out of death bring forth a life
