Peace On The Border

	  Intro 
C 

Verse 
  G/B     F/A C  G     Am 
After the riding we dispersed 
   F       C       G 
We drifted home in twos and threes 
        C    G/B F/A  C  G     Am 
Through cold and rain we spat and cursed 
     F       C      G   C 
This ancient war of families 

Verse 
  G/B  F/A    C   G      Am 
Armies passed and then returned 
    F           C           G 
They killed and raped, they stole and burnt 
   G/B  F/A C      G       Am 
So from the cradle we have learnt 
   F     C       G 
To be as hard as stone 
    F          G      Am  G/B  C 
And learned to stand alone...
