Ironmasters

	  		 There seems to be 2 versions of this track, the first in standard tuning and another, (the original album 
 version I think), which it tuned slightly sharp, (about a quarter step). I'm guessing the track has been 
 sped up slightly. Other than that it's a fun track to play. Makes me wish I owned a banjo! 
 The chords in brackets are not played but you can put them in if you like, (I do).

  verse 1: 
     D                           Bm          A         D                             G   D 
  Oh this is an old story that's rarely ever told, the raping of the country, of the valley   
      D                           Bm           A          D                  A   D 
  The men who came to reap with a musket and a bible they wanted to take the valley   
      D           G   D        A    
  The valley, the valley, they wanted to take the valley  
      D          G   D         A                D 
  And oh the ironmasters, they always get their way

  verse 2: 
      D                         Bm                A             D                         G    D 
  And so far a pittance all the people worked the land, all the men and the women and the children  
      D                             Bm            A         D                  A       D 
  And on sundays it was down to the chapel in the town  the preacher said give generously 
       D                G       D       A        
  Give generously, give generously, the people they gave generously  
      D          G   D         A                D 
  And oh the ironmasters, they always get their way

  The union met in secret on the dark side of the hill  by the light of a thousand candles  
        D                         Bm          A             D                        A   D 
  Their pay had been cut, all the people come on out and by scores they were joining Rebecca   
    D        G   D      A    
  Rebecca, Rebecca, the people were joining Rebecca  
      D          G   D         A                D 
  And oh the ironmasters, they always get their way
