Van Diemen's Land - U2
chord transcription by stefano (barleycorn@infinito.it)

tune your guitar one half step lower.

[Verse 1]

         G  C            G   Gsus4
Hold me now, oh hold me now
          Em C            D
Til this hour has gone around.
        Bm                  Em    C
And I'm gone on the rising tide
        G D               G
For to face Van Diemen's Land.


[Verse 2]
(same chord pattern for all the other verses)

It's a bitter pill I swallow here
To be read from one so dear.
We fought for justice and not for gain
But the magistrate sent me away.


[Verse 3]

Now the kings will rule and the poor will toil
And tear their hands as they tear the soil.
But a day will come in this dawning age
When an honest man sees and honest wage.


[Verse 4]

Hold me now, oh hold me now
Til this hour has gone around.
And I'm gone on the rising tide
For to face Van Diemen's Land.


[Verse 5]

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

I'm pretty sure the third C chord is actually a Bm. Check here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vsD95EE69Rk
