Verse I
D		A/C#	     Bm		       Bm/A
Listen children to a story that was written long ago
G		   D			Em7		Em7/A
'Bout a kingdom on a mountain, and the valley folk below
D		A/C#	        Bm		    Bm/A
On the mountain was a treasure buried deep beneath a stone
G		   D			Em7		Em7/A
And the valley people swore they'd have it for their very own.

D   			    F#m	         G				A
Go ahead and hate your neighbor, go ahead and cheat a friend
D			F#m		   G		A
Do it in the name of heaven, you can justify it in the end
D				F#m	  G			D	
There won't be any trumpets blowing, come the judgment day
		       G	No Chord
On the bloody morning after - one tin soldier rides away.

Verse II
D		A/C#	      Bm		    Bm/A
So the people of the valley sent a message up the hill
G		   D			Em7		Em7/A
Asking for the buried treasure, tons of gold for which they'd kill
D		A/C#	           Bm			Bm/A
Came an answer from the kingdom: “With our brothers we will share
G		   D			Em7		Em7/A
All the secrets of our mountain, all the riches buried there.”


Verse III
D		A/C#	          Bm			Bm/A
Now the valley cried with anger, mount your horses, draw your sword!
G		   D			Em7		Em7/A
And they killed the mountain people, sure they’d won their just reward
D		A/C#		     Bm			Bm/A
Now they stood beside the treasure on the mountain dark and red
G		   D			
Turned the stone and looked beneath it - 
Em7		Em7/A
"Peace on Earth" was all it said.
