Bruce Springsteen - We Are Alive chords


“We Are Alive”
By Bruce Springsteen

Capo 5  /  Intro  G  C  G  /  G  C  D

G C G There is a cross up yonder up on Calvary Hill
G C DThere is a slip of blood on a silver knife
G C G There is a graveyard kid… Down below…
G C DWhere at night did come to life
G C G And above the stars, they crackle in fire
G C DA dead man's moon throws seven rings
G C G Well, we put our ears to the cold grave stones
G C DThis is the song they'd sing
G C G WE ARE ALIVE…
G C DAnd though our bodies lie alone here in the dark
G C G C DOUR SPIRITS RISE…. To carry the fire and light the spark
G C G To stand shoulder to shoulder and HEART… TO HEART …
G C G / G C D(Whistle………….)
G C GA voice cried out, I was killed in Maryland in 1877
G C DWhen the railroad workers made their stand
G C GWell, I was killed in 1963 one Sunday morning in Birmingham
G C DWell, I died last year crossing the southern desert
G C GMy children left behind in San Pablo
G C DWell they left our bodies here to rot
G C GOh please let them know… WE ARE ALIVE…
G C DOh, and though we lye alone here in the dark
G C G C DOUR SOULS WILL RISE… To carry the fire and light the spark
G C GTo fight shoulder to shoulder and HEART… TO HEART…
G C G / G C D…….4x’s(Whistle………….)
G C GLet your mind rest easy, sleep well my friend
G C DIt's only our bodies that betray us in the end
G C GI awoke last night in a dark and dreamy deep
G C DFrom my head to my feet, my body gone stone cold
G C GThere were worms crawling all around me
G C DFingers scratching at an earth black and six foot low
G C GAnd alone in the blackness of my grave
G C DAlone I'd been LEFT TO DIE
G C GThen I heard voices calling all around me
G C DThe earth rose above me, my eyes filled with sky
G C G WE ARE ALIVE…
G C DAnd though our bodies lie alone here in the dark
G C GOUR SOULS & SPIRITS RISE…
G C DTo carry the fire and light the spark
G C GTo fight shoulder to shoulder and HEART…. TO HEART…
G C GTo stand shoulder to shoulder and HEART…. TO HEART…
C G……….StopWE ARE ALIVE !!!!
