The Sound Of A Gun

	  		


 
 

Intro: 
Bm G Em Bm 

Bm 
I have seen the diamond stylus, 
 G 
Cut a groove from north to south, 
 Bm                                        G 
Heard them calling from the islands for a better day, 
Bm                  
One by one they tell their story, 
G 
One by one it's just the same, 
          F#m 
"They've taken our leaders, 
                             G 
And all their believers are paralysed, 
            Bm    A    Bm 
And now we can't turn back, somebody is watching you! 
 Bm    A    Bm 
Don't turn round, yesterday's gone! 
    Em                     Bm                    C 
And even the children are waking at midnight in tears, 
Didn't anyone hear? Mother, mother, mother..." 

 G          A                C         D          Em 
Hush child go to sleep, it's only the sound of a gun, 
 G          A                C         D          Em 
Hush child go to sleep, it's only the sound of a gun, 
   Bm    Em     Bm  G A Bm 
Ooooh, aaah, ooooh,  aaah, 

 Bm 
Looking out my bedroom window, 
G 
I remember early days, 
  Bm                                           G 
When the shot that wounded millions took our breath away, 
     Bm 
But now the shadow of a gunman, 
 G                           F#m 
With his balaclava eyes, is making the news, 
                                 G 
Calling out the warnings on the telephone, 
                Bm  A   Bm 
"You're in the line of fire, wish there was another way! 
 Bm  A   Bm 
Line of fire, anything goes," 
      Em                     Bm                    C 
And who is the winner, and what will the minister say, 
At the end of the day? Never, never, never, never! 

 G          A                C         D          Em 
Hush child go to sleep, it's only the sound of a gun, 
 G          A                C         D          Em  
Hush child go to sleep, it's only the sound of a gun, 

Bm G Em Bm 

     Bm                  G 
This is bella soma, this is bella soma, 
     Em                  Bm 
This is bella soma, this is bella soma, 
     Em                  C 
This is bella soma, this is bella soma, 
Mother, mother, mother... 

 G          A                C         D          Em 
Hush child go to sleep, it's only the sound of a gun, 
 G          A                C         D          Em 
Hush child go to sleep, it's only the sound of a gun, 
 G          A                C         D          Em 
Hush child go to sleep, it's only the sound of a gun, 
 G          A                C         D          B            Em 
Hush child do not weep, it's only the sound of a world on the run, 
        C           D          Em  Bm Em Bm Em C A D A 
You're hearing the sound of a gun.
