[C]Listen children [G]to a story [Am]that was written [Em]long ago,
[F]\'Bout a kingdom [C]on a mountain [F]and the valley [G7]folk below
[C]On the mountain [G]was a treasure [Am]buried deep be[Em]neath a stone
[F]And the valley [C]people swore they\'d [F]have it for their [G]very [C]own
Go ahead and hate your [Em]neighbor, [F]go ahead and cheat a [C]friend
Do it in the name of [Em]heaven, [F]justify it in the [C]end
There won\'t be any trumpets [Em]blowin, [F]come the judgment [C]day
On the bloody morning [F]after........One tin [Am]soldier [G7]rides a[C]way.
[C]So the people [G]of the valley [Am]sent a message [Em]up the hill
[F]Asking for the [C]buried treasure [F]tons of gold for which they\'d [G7]kill
[C]Came an answer [G]from the kingdom [Am]\"With our brothers [Em]we will share\"
[F]All the secrets [C]of our mountain, [F]all the riches [G]buried [C]there.\"
[C]Now the valley [G]cried with anger, [Am]mount your horses, [Em]draw your sword
[F]and they killed the [C]mountain people [F]so they won their just [G7]reward
[C]Now they stood [G]beside the treasure [Am]on the mountain, [Em]dark and red
[F]turned the stone and [C]looked beneath it, [F]\"Peace on Earth\" was [G]all it [C]said.
