[Intro]
Am

[Verse]
AmHe was young and he was proud
C DHe was strong and unafraid
Am C Em GAnd he walked alone where others feared to tread
AmAnd all the treasures of the land
C DHe could hold them in his hand
Am C G AmAnd where others always followed he would lead
[Verse]
AmBut when the others came to lead
C DThey were driven on by greed
Am C Em GAnd they forced him to believe his way was wrong
AmIn his simple way he tried
C DBut his spirit slowly died
Am C G AmAnd he knew his weary journey had begun
[Chorus]
DAnd he had to get down
AmGet down on the ground
FHe had to get down
E N.C. AmAnd leave his pride behind
[Verse]
AmAnd he had to come to terms
C DWith the things he had to learn
Am C Em GAnd his innocence destroyed itself with age
AmWhen he stopped to turn around
C DThe path was nowhere to be found
Am C G AmAnd he was guided like a puppet on a stage
[Verse]
AmAnd the proud and noble savage
C DTook his turn at being scared
Am C Em GWhereas before he never knew the taste of fear
AmHe had to grovel in the sand
C DAnd hold an open hand
Am C G AmFor he knew within, the end was drawing near
[Chorus]
DAnd he had to get down
AmGet down on the ground
FHe had to get down
E N.C. AmAnd leave his pride behind
[Instrumental] Am C D Am C Em G Am Am C D Am C G Am [Verse]
AmAnd he cried aloud with pain
C DFor to walk in the light again
Am C Em GAnd he begs for someone close to lend an ear
AmAnd he's turned the other cheek
C DBut now he's much too weak
Am C G AmAnd no one stops to listen though they hear
[Verse]
AmAnd now an age has passed away
C DAnd we are left to pay
Am C Em GFor the wrongs inflicted on this man
AmAnd if the burden weighs us down
C DWe'll have to kneel upon the ground
Am C G AmAnd pray for forgiveness from this man
[Chorus]
D'Cause he had to get down
AmGet down on the ground
FHe had to get down
E AmAnd leave his pride behind
[Chorus]
DOh, we'd better get down
AmGet down on the ground
FWe'd better get down
E AmAnd leave our pride behind
