A Better Life

Em                        C 
As fearless leader of the Ravenskill Militia 
Em                      Am             D 
The blood of warriors flows throughout my veins 
Em                        C              Bm 
My brother's gift remains my secret ammunition 
Em                         D          Dsus     D 
It is our hope, our pride, a catalyst for change 
Am                 G          G/F#     Em      D 
Still the fires of revolution burn within my eyes 
Am                       C         D               D9 
On this perilous road to freedom, he's our one and only guide 

For many years, I've seen 
Our people starve and suffer 
Em                     Am                  D 
How many more will die before we stand and fight? 

Em                        C              Bm 
They ask me "Arhys, could things be any tougher?" 
Em                         D          Dsus     D 
The answer's no surprise: "Yes, you bet your life".  
Am                 G          G/F#     Em      D 
Now the fires of revolution won't burn forever more 
Am                       C         D               D9 
I see liberty in our future, and it's one we're fighting for 

Em      D         C        Bm 
We all long for a better life 
Em      D/F#            G      Am 
Like a dream that can't be denied 
Am          Bm      C          D 
This is the moment, now is the time 
B  C    B  C   B  C   B   C   B 
Freedom if we live or if we die 

Em    D/F#        G         D 
I shall give him a better life 
Em       Bm            C      Am 
I swore this vow to my dying wife 
Am           C         G 
Sure, she would not survive 
F          Em 
Peacefully she slipped away 
The meaning in my life 
Was born that day 
     B                              C       Am        A# 
And so I found the strength to carry on with this crusade 
 E/G#     F E 
It is my fate. 

Am                  G             F           Am 
Evangeline, you lived a life of misery and pain 
Am                   G            F            Em 
Evangeline, I'll never let your memory die in vain 
Em         G       F             Am 
Evangeline, my heavy heart still bleeds 
Am              G             Em 
I dedicate my life to set you free 
   F         G                 Am 
And I will carry on to plant the seeds 
A#               C                D 
I promise in the name of our new son; 
A#                 Am             D 
This battle won't be over until it's won!
