One Tin Soldier Peter, Paul and Mary
[C]Listen children [G]to a sto[Am]ry that was written long[Em] ago
[F]'Bout a kingdom on [C]a mountain, and the v[F]alley folk below[G]
[C]On the mountain [G]was a treasure b[Am]uried deep beneath a [Em]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[Em]bor, go ahead[F] and cheat a friend [G]
[C]Do it in the name of hea[Em]ven, you can justif[F]y it in the e[G]nd
[C]There won't be any trumpets blow[Em]ing, come [F]the judgment day [C]
No Chord F C
On the bloody morning after - one tin soldier rides away.
[C]So the people of[G] the valley sent[Am] a message up th[Em]e 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 yo[Em]ur sword!
[F]And they killed the moun[C]tain people, sure they’d [F]won their just reward
[C]Now they stood be[G]side the treasure on th[Am]e mountain dark a[Em]nd red
[F]Turned the stone and loo[C]ked beneath it -
[F]"Peace on Earth" was all it said[C].
