Hey!
[Gm]Nine hours passed and how long will it last
says the m[Bb]an with the plan and a g[C]un in his ha[(D)]nd.
He's [Gm]scared but prepared it might be as he feared
are they st[Bb]ill in control, and [C]safe behind the [(D)]wall.
This ev[Gm]ening's too quiet, oh we need a real riot
to s[Bb]hake and to break and to b[C]ite like a s[(D)]nake.
We're s[Gm]tuck in this attic so bored and so static,
tomo[Bb]rrow they'll ask us to throw off our ma[C]sks.[D]
But the s[Gm]torm is a'coming 'cross the h[(Bb)]ills tonight,
like a ve[Eb]in full of ra[Bb]in to the hear[F]ts that should fight.
The st[Gm]orm is a'coming 'cross the h[Bb]ills tonight,
like a v[Eb]ein full of rai[Bb]n to the hearts [F]that should fight.[Gm]
(Main theme 1x)
M[Gm]ary's like me she's a loser to be,
got a l[Bb]ock on her door and a b[C]ed on the fl[(D)]oor.
They will k[Gm]now they will win and then they'll come in.
There's no[Bb]thing you could say to le[C]ad them ast[(D)]ray.
We st[Gm]ill live in silence like sworn threats of violence.
I lo[Bb]ng for an end and it's com[C]ing round the bend.[(D)]
If we l[Gm]ive through this night and we'd still be all right.
We'd f[Bb]lee to Siam or a b[C]ar in Amsterdam.[D]
But the s[Gm]torm is a'coming 'cross the hi[Bb]lls tonight,
like a ve[Eb]in full of ra[Bb]in to the hear[F]ts that should fight.
The st[Gm]orm is a'coming 'cross the h[Bb]ills tonight,
like a v[Eb]ein full of rai[Bb]n to the hearts [F]that should fi[Gm]ght.
(Main theme 2x)
