One Tin Soldier

Peter, Paul and Mary

 CGAm
 Listen children to a story that was written long ago
 FCFG
 'Bout a kingdom on a mountain, and the valley folk below
 CGAm
 On the mountain was a treasure buried deep beneath a stone
 FCFC
 And the valley people swore they'd have it for their very own. 

(Chorus:)
 CGFC
 Go ahead and hate your neighbor, go ahead and cheat a friend 
 GFC
Do it in the name of heaven, you can justify it in the end
 CGFC
 There won't be any trumpets blowing, come the judgment day
 FF liftC
On the bloody morning after - one tin soldier rides away.

Verse II
 CGAm
 So the people of the valley sent a message up the hill
 FCFG
 Asking for the buried treasure, tons of gold for which they'd kill
 CGAm
 Came an answer from the kingdom: With our brothers we will share
 FCFC
 All the secrets of our mountain, all the riches buried there.

Chorus

Verse III
 CGAm
 Now the valley cried with anger, mount your horses, draw your sword!
 FCFG
 And they killed the mountain people, so they won their just reward      
 CGAm
 Now they stood beside the treasure on the mountain dark and red
 FC
 Turned the stone and looked beneath it -
 FC
 "Peace on Earth" was all it said.......Chorus
