One Tin Soldier Peter, Paul and Mary
[C]Listen children [G]to a sto[Am]ry that was written long ago
[F]'Bout a kingdom on [C]a mountain, an[F]d the valley folk below[G]
[C]On the mountain [G]was a treasure b[Am]uried deep beneath a stone
[F]And the valley p[C]eople swore they'd have [F]it for their very own. [C]
[C]Go ahead and hate your neigh[G]bor, g[F]o ahead and cheat a friend [C]
Do it in the name of hea[G]ven, you can justif[F]y it in the e[C]nd
[C]There won't be any trumpets blow[G]ing, come [F]the judgment day[C]
On the bloody morning [F]after[F lift] - one tin soldier rides aw[C]ay.
[C]So the people of[G] the valley sent[Am] a message up the hill
[F]Asking for the b[C]uried treasure, ton[F]s of gold for which they'd ki[G]ll
[C]Came an answer from[G] the kingdom: With o[Am]ur brothers we will share
[F]All the secrets [C]of our mountain, all[F] the riches buried t[C]here.
[C]Now the valley crie[G]d with anger, mou[Am]nt your horses, draw your sword!
[F]And they killed the moun[C]tain people, s[F]o they won their just rew[G]ard
[C]Now they stood be[G]side the treasure o[Am]n the mountain dark and red
[F]Turned the stone and loo[C]ked beneath it -
[F]"Peace on Earth" was all it said[C].......Chorus
