Anais Mitchell Why We Build The Wall chords
This is from Anais Mitchell's incredible folk opera "Hadestown". It's my personal favourite so i thought I'd have a go at getting the chords down. I know this isn't how she plays it as i've seen a few live videos and she has the capo at the 4th fret so must be in a weird tuning! These are the implied chords though: Em - 022000 Dsus2 - 000230 D - 000232 Dsus4 - 000233 G - 320033 G/F# - 200233 Capo 3 Em Dsus2-D Em G-G/F#-EmEm Dsus2-D Em G-G/F#-EmWhy do we build the wall, my children my children why do we build the wallEm Dsus2-D-Dsus4-D Em G-G/F#-EmWhy do we build the wall we build the wall to keep us free that's why we build the wall webuild the wall to keep us freeEm Dsus2-D-Dsus4-D Em G-G/F#-EmHow does the wall keep us free my children my children how does the wall keep us freeEm Dsus2-D-Dsus4-D Em DHow does the wall keep us free the wall keeps out the enemy and we build the wall to keep us freeEm G-G/F#-Emthat's why we build the wall we build the wall to keep us freeetc. the song carries on with the same chord progression thoughout. each choral part gets one line longer each time. enjoy!
