Decemberists - When The War Came chords

Chords
Transpose
INTRO

Bsus2

VERSE 1

With all the grain of Babylon
To cultivate, To make us strong
And hidden here behind the walls
Are shoulders wide and timber on
Asus2Till the war came
Bsus2Till the war came
VERSE 2 A terrible autonomy Is grafted onto you and me A trust put in the governments Who told their lies as heaven sent
Asus2Till the war came
Bsus2Till the war came
CHORUS
G Asus2 Bsus2And the war came with a curse and a caterwaul
G Asus2 Bsus2And the war came with all the poise of a cannonball
G A Em GAnd they're picking out our eyes by cold and candlelight
GWhen the war came
Asus Bssu2The war came hard
VERSE 3 We made our oaths to Avalon We'd not betray the soul lain on The acres of hysteracy To our own pangs of starvation When the war came When the war came CHORUS
G Asus2 Bsus2And the war came with a curse and a caterwaul
G Asus2 Bsus2And the war came with all the poise of a cannonball
G A Em GAnd they're picking out our eyes by cold and candlelight
GWhen the war came
Asus Bssu2The war came hard
OUTRO With all the grain of Babylon With all the grain of Babylon
