Em           Am
A bell in a churchyard,
   Em               B7
It yells for me to begin.
        Em         Am
And my hands they tremble and shake. 
       Em                      B7
While a chill burrows under my skin.
   Em           Am
It rains in the valley,
   Em              B7
It rains from the skies.
         Em          Am
And it's raining deep inside my soul,
       Em                     B7
And it pours up and out of my eyes.



Em       Am             B7        Am
Not long ago, you were here in my arms
     Em               Am             B7
And I swore I would protect you from harm
    Am      Em
Now here we are.
        Am             B7
On this hill, 'neath the tree
         Am           Em
In the Churchyard at dawn.
                 Am       B7    Am
How could we've fallen so far?


Em Am Em B7


     Em          Am        Em
The earth is a blood-red clay
                 B7
That cakes to my heels.
        Em            Am
And the spade grows heavy as lead,
       Em                    B7
And my heart it is heavier still.
     Em             Am
In a bow there's a raven
       Em                   B7
And its eyes fix me with a stare.
        Em          Am
Then he turns and screams at the sky.
        Em                         B7
And it burns like the truth in my ears.



Em       Am             B7        Am
Not long ago, you were here in my arms
     Em               Am             B7
And I swore I would protect you from harm
    Am      Em
Now here we are.
        Am             B7
On this hill, 'neath the tree
         Am           Em
In the Churchyard at dusk.
                 Am       B7    Am
How could we've fallen so far?

Em             Am              B7
No one should find out how it feels
   Am    Em              Am
Standing here, hoping and praying
        B7             Am      Em
You'll awake from this awful ordeal.
               Am                 B7
No one should find out what it's like
 Am      Em              Am               B7
Standing here, digging a hole in which to bury
      Am            Em
Your child and your wife.



Em               Am
When they are finished
     Em                   B7
They look like wounds on a hill

Two graves, they lay side by side

For my life and my lover to fill.



Em             Am              B7
No one should find out how it feels
   Am    Em              Am
Standing here, hoping and praying
        B7             Am      Em
You'll awake from this awful ordeal.
               Am                 B7
No one should find out what it's like
 Am      Em                   Am
Standing here, not having the means
            B7      Am            Em
To buy the medicine to save their lives.
