U2 - Van Diemen's land

         G   C9          G
Hold me now, oh hold me now
Em C D
Till this hour has gone around
Bm Em
And I'm gone on the rising tide
C G D G C9 / G
For to face Van Diemen's land
G C9 G
It's a bitter pill I swallow here
Em C D
To be rent from one so dear
Bm Em
We fought for justice and not for gain
C G D G C9 / G
But the magistrate sent me away

G C9 G
Now kings will rule and the poor will toil
Em C D
And tear their hands as they tear the soil
Bm Em
But a day will come in this dawning age
C G D G C9 / G
When an honest man sees an honest wage
G C9 G
Hold me now, oh hold me now
Em C D
Till this hour has gone around
Bm Em
And I'm gone on the rising tide
C G D G C9 / G
For to face Van Diemen's land

G C9 G
Still the gunman rules and Widows pay
Em C D
A scarlett coat now a black beret
Bm Em
They thought that blood and sacrifice
C G D G
Could out of death bring forth a life
