Hearts And Spades (acoustic)

	  		
 

Em 
With a knock, knock and my eyes come open. 
Em7 
I light a match and orange fills the room. 
D 
The candle-light dancing off the walls. 
D 
and the movement's enough to wake her up. 
Em 
The men are outside with their torches. 
Em7 
I hear the hooves of the horses I must lead. 
D 
Would you fill up this flask with your moonshine 
D 
I'll need it to keep myself warm through this snowy storm. 
Em 
And hide your tears till my sights are out the door. 
Em7 
It's hard enough to leave for a war I don't believe. 
D 
Would you fill up this gun with melted soldiers, 
D 
it's the hand-made bullets that saved for the ring you wear. 
Em 
And I'll be wearing mine through the war cries. 
Em7 
I won't let them tear it from my hands.  
D 
The waiting is over. The waiting is over, 
D  
and I tell her as I go that 

C 
"I'm coming back." 
                         Em7 
But I may not be coming back. 
G 
Promise me you won't forget this, 
D 
but promise me you shall not dwell. 
C 
I'm coming back. 
                         Em7 
But I may not be coming back. 
G 
Take the letters off the dresser 
D                                        Em7 
and fill the void with hearts and spades. 

Em7 
Oh, the outside air is cold. 
D                                   D                                Em7 
You can see your breath for miles and miles and miles and miles and miles. 
Em7                   D       D 
Oh, heading north to war... To war. 
Em7 
Dreams take me back to the home I grew up in. 
Em7                                      D 
Take me back to that little house on the hill.  
                                   D 
It was there we felt alive we didn't care about the territory or the long story. 
Em7 
Take me back, take me back to the day we met. 
Em7                                         D 
Playing cards with the girl right down the road. 
D 
Joking that the jack saw too much. 
D 
You be hearts and I'll be spades. 

C 
"I'm coming back." 
                         Em7 
But I may not be coming back. 
G 
Promise me you won't forget this, 
D 
but promise me you shall not dwell. 
C 
I'm coming back. 
                         Em7 
But I may not be coming back. 
G 
Take the letters off the dresser 
D                                         
and fill the void with hearts and spades. 

Em B C B 
  
Em 
Dear love, 
B                          C   B 
I write you with a heavy heart. 
Em                         D        
And with this pen I lie to you, lie to you. 
B                    C 
And with this pen I lie to you, lie to you 
G 
And with this pen I lie to you, lie to you. 
A 
These letters are a lie. 

Em Em7 D 
C  D 

Em 
Past the snow, past the fields, past the hills, 
D 
we finally see the enemy we so greatly feared. 
C 
And in the image of 900 men lining the horizon, 
D 
this is where my letters end. 

Em 
Ride with me, ride with me! 
D                                       
Don't mistake their war cries for lullabies. 
Em 
Ride with me, die with me! 
D                          
Their fortune means our fate. 
Em 
Hold the line, hold the line! 
D                                                 
This will be the ground with which their bodies lie. 
Em 
Hold the line, force the fight! 
D                   
We'll never be the same.
