Save The Hammer For The Man

	  		

Tuning: D# Ab C# F# Bb D# 

Intro: Em  A  D  Em  A 


D                    Bm    A                    D 
I hurt the gentlest souls, I robbed my wife and son 
D            D/C#     Bm       A            Bm 
I turned my back on troubles, troubles I'd begun 
D                Bm                   A                D  
I cut a swath of pain and loss in the hallways of my home 
D           D/C#   Bm      A                   Bm 
In the quiet of my room I know the things I've done 

G                        D    A                      Bm 
Save the hammer for the man, save the hammer for the man 
G                        D 
It's the calling of the wretched 
A                       Bm 
It's the rising of the damned 
A                        Bm 
Save the hammer for the man 


I was driven from the city, in the wilderness I stand 
In the cleansing rain in silence, I made my battle plan 
Alone I marched towards freedom, leaving footprints across the land 
With the vow that's left unspoken, save the hammer for the man 

Save the hammer for the man, save the hammer for the man 
You're never too far down the wrong road 
To turn back and change your plan 
Save the hammer for the man 

I leaned against the hot and bothered wind beneath a hateful rain 
Politics, apocalypse start to look the same 
For the pasts of my redemption will mean the end of many things 
The ransom for my soul the blood of generals and kings 

Save the hammer for the man, save the hammer for the man 
I sinned and I have suffered 
And it feels good in my hands 
Save the hammer for the man 

I was driven from the city, in the wilderness I stand 
In the cleansing rain in silence, I made my battle plan 
I will whisper words of freedom, I will swing hard as I can 
Lord knows the time has come and save the hammer for the man 

Save the hammer for the man, save the hammer for the man 
If the fire's hot enough 
Iron and steel will bend 
Save the hammer for the man 

Oh, save the hammer for the man 
Gotta save the hammer for the man 
I will whisper words of freedom, I'll swing hard as I can 
Save the hammer for the man, for the man 

I will whisper words of freedom 
I'll swing hard as I can
