There Will Be a Reckoning  Billy Bragg

"There Will Be A Reckoning" - Billy Bragg - Tooth And Nail - 2013
Transcribed by wranglingoutlaw
Capo - 3
Intro - | Em G | D |
| Em G | D...|
(palm mute)
Em * G ( * Walkup to G on 6th string )
Somewhere between the midnight
[D]And the cold and empty [Bm]dawn
[Em]I found myself out wal[G]king
[D]On the streets where I was[Bm] born
[Em]And I came upon a s[G]tranger
[D]Who looked Me in the [Bm]face
[Em]And asked Me what I was [G]doing
In this[D] god forsaken [Bm]place
(play open)
I[C/G] don't need to be forgiven For some[G]thing I haven't done
No for[D]ewarning my family To find their [Em]place in the sun
If[C/B] you keep this pressure on [G]Just don't be surprised
If I can'[D]t summon up My dignity While You're [Em]roughing up My pride
T[Bm]here will be a r[Em]eckoning
[C/G] For the p[G]eddlers of [D]hate,
Who [Em]spread their [C/G]poison all ac[G]ross this [D]estate
And a [Em]reckoning [C/B]too, for the pol[G]iticians w[D]ho
L[A]eft Us to this f[C]ate
There will be a re[Em]ckoning[G] [D]
| Em G | D . . . |
(palm mute)
[Em]Just a few days l[G]ater, a m[D]an came to My [Bm]door
To[Em] ask Me if I th[G]ought that
This [D]place was worth fighting [Bm]for
And thou[Em]gh I recognize his r[G]easons
[D]I just could not [Bm]agree
When[Em] they told me that My [G]neighbor
[D]Would be My [Bm]enemy
(play open)
I[C/G] don't need to be forgiven For some[G]thing I haven't done
No for[D]ewarning my family To find Their [Em]place in the sun
If[C/B] You keep this pressure on [G]Just don't be surprised
If I can'[D]t summon up my dignity While You're [Em]roughing up My pride
T[Bm]here will be a r[Em]eckoning
[C/G] For the p[G]eddlers of [D]hate,
Who [Em]spread their [C/G]poison all ac[G]ross this [D]estate
And a [Em]reckoning [C/B]too, for the pol[G]iticians who[D]
L[A]eft us to this f[C]ate
There will be a re[Em]ckoning[G] [D]
There will be a re[Em]ckoning[G] [D]
There will be a re[Em]ckoning[G] [D]
There will be a re[Em]ckoning
