Verse I
C                         G               Am                  
       Em
Listen children to a story that was written long ago
F                            C                          Dm    
                G7
'Bout a kingdom on a mountain, and the valley folk below
C                             G                        Am     
                  Em
On the mountain was a treasure buried deep beneath a stone
F                          C                                 
Dm                        G     C
And the valley people swore they'd have it for their very own.

(Chorus:)
C                                         Em             F    
                                   G
Go ahead and hate your neighbor, go ahead and cheat a friend
C                                  Em                          
F                         G
Do it in the name of heaven, you can justify it in the end
C                                                  Em             
F                                C
There won't be any trumpets blowing, come the judgment day
N/C                                            F                       
                    C
On the bloody morning after - one tin soldier rides away.

Verse II
C                       G                    Am               
        Em
So the people of the valley sent a message up the hill
F                          C                          Dm      
                  G7
Asking for the buried treasure, tons of gold for which they'd kill
C                              G                                 Am
Came an answer from the kingdom: “With our brothers we will share
F                         C                            Dm     
              G            C
All the secrets of our mountain, all the riches buried there.”

Chorus

Verse III
C                          G                            Am    
                           Em
Now the valley cried with anger, mount your horses, draw your sword!
F                                 C                              
Dm                                 G7
And they killed the mountain people, sure they’d won their just reward
C                                  G                          
Am                        Em
Now they stood beside the treasure on the mountain dark and red
F                                        C
Turned the stone and looked beneath it -
Dm                                 G      C
"Peace on Earth" was all it said.
