When the War Came  The Decemberists

INTRO
[Bsus2]  
VERSE 1
With all the grain of Babylon
To cultivate, To make us strong
And hidden here behind the walls
Are shoulders wide and timber on
Till the [Asus2]war came
Till the [Bsus2]war came
VERSE 2
A terrible autonomy
Is grafted onto you and me
A trust put in the governments
Who told their lies as heaven sent
Till the [Asus2]war came
Till the [Bsus2]war came
CHORUS
( Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/d/decemberists/when_the_war_came_crd.html )
And the [G]war came with a [Asus2]curse and a caterwaul[Bsus2]
And the [G]war came with all the [Asus2]poise of a cannonball[Bsus2]
And they're [G]picking out our ey[A]es by [Em]cold and candle[G]light
When the [G]war came
The [Asus]war came hard[Bssu2]
VERSE 3
We made our oaths to Avalon
We'd not betray the soul lain on
The acres of hysteracy
To our own pangs of starvation
When the war came
When the war came
CHORUS
And the [G]war came with a [Asus2]curse and a caterwaul[Bsus2]
And the [G]war came with all the [Asus2]poise of a cannonball[Bsus2]
And they're [G]picking out our ey[A]es by [Em]cold and candle[G]light
When the [G]war came
The [Asus]war came hard[Bssu2]
OUTRO
With all the grain of Babylon
With all the grain of Babylon
