Intro: D    A    D   A       D   A   D   A  

                D         A          D       A  
 They say the skies of Lebanon are burning  
                D       A             D     A  
 Those mighty cedars bleeding in the heat  
                    D    A             D      A  
They're showing pictures on the tele-vision  
            D        A           Drun  
Women and children dying in the street  
G  
Now we're still at it in our own place  
                  D         A                  Drun  
Still trying to reach the future through the past,   Still tryin' to  
  G                      G  (TACET)  
Carve tomorrow from a tombstone  
     A                          D                          G  
But hey don't listen to me,    This wasn't meant to be no sad song  
                 A             D   A   D  
We've heard too much of that before  
                         A                           G      A           D  
Right now I only want to be here with you 'til the morning dew comes falling  

                          G                      A               D  A  D  
I wanna take you to the island and trace your footprints in the sand  
                             A     
And in the evening when the sun goes down   
            G            A            D       D  
We'll make love to the sound of the ocean  
  
                  D      A             D     A  
They're raising battles over by the markets  
                D    A                D     A  
Whitewashing slogans on the shipyard wall  
                D     A              D     A  
Witchdoctors praying for a mighty showdown  
           D    A             D run  
The way a holy flag is gonna fall  
G                                               D        A          D run  
Up here we sacrifice our children,To feed the,Worn out dreams of yesterday  
                 G                        G (TACET)  
And teach them "Dying will lead us into Glory"  
                 A             D                          G  
But hey don't listen to me,   This wasn't  meant to be a sad song  
                 A             D   A   D  
We've heard too much of that before  
  D                    A                           G      A           D  
Right now I only wanna be here with you 'til the morning dew comes falling
