Chorus:
         F                                             C/G 
	Was it bitter then,with our backs against the wall
         G                                        C/G    
	Were we better men,then we'd ever been before
         F                                                         C/G  
	Say if she came again today,would you still answer to the call
         G                                           C/G 
	Tell the truth my friend,don't it matter anymore


Verse 1:
         F                                           C/G
	We were simple men,by her side when she was born
         G                                            C/G  
	It was simple then,like the freedom when you fall
         F                                                         C/G 
	We were smaller then you see,but soon we gathered like a storm
          G                                              C/G
	They don't understand what that thunder meant at all

	
Verse 2:
         F                                      C/G
	Was he crucified,was he done in by the law
         G                                        C/G
	Are you satisfied that he'll never ride again
         F                                                    C/G  
	Some people say he got away,they say he never died at all
         G                                           C/G
	If that story's true,does it bother you my friend


Chorus.
