Frank Turner - Sons Of Liberty chords

Chords
Transpose
Song: Sons of Liberty
Artist: Frank Turner
Album: Poetry of the Deed

Tuning: Standard

Note: I think there's something going on in the verses before the D chord goes back to 
the E chord, but I can't quite pin it down.  A-maj just doesn't sound right.

VERSE 1

E DOnce an honest man could go from sunrise to its set
D Ewithout encountering agents of his state or government.
E DBut a sorry cloud of tyranny has fallen across the land,
D Ebrought on by the hollow men, who did not understand
E Dthat for centuries our forefathers have fought and often died
D Eto keep themselves unto themselves, to fight the rising tide,
E Dand that if in the smallest battles we surrender to the state,
D Ewe enter in a darkness whence we never shall escape.
BRIDGE F# B E B
AWhen they raise their hands up our lives to possess,
F# B E B Ato know our souls, to drag us down, we'll resist.
VERSE 2
E DWatt Tyler led the people in 1381
D Eto meet the king at Smithfield and issue this demand:
E Dthat Winchesterís should be the only law across the land,
D Ethe law of old King Alfred's time, of free and honest men.
E DBecause the people then they understood what we have since forgot:
D Ethat governments will only work for its own benefit.
E DAnd Iíd rather stand up naked against the elements alone
D Ethan give the hollow men the right to enter in my home.
BRIDGE F# B E B
AWhen they raise their hands up our lives to possess,
F# B E B Ato know our souls, to drag us down, we'll resist.
SOLO: Chords: E - E E - E - E - D - E - E - D - A - E (x4) E CHORUS (First two times no guitar, guitar on third and fourth time)
E D A EStand up sons of liberty and fight for what you own.
E D A EStand up sons of liberty and fight, fight for your homes.
OUTRO
E DSo if ever a man should ask you for your business, or your name,
D Etell him to go and fuck himself, tell his friends to do the same.
E DBecause a man who'd trade his liberty for a safe and dreamless sleep
D Edoesn't deserve the both of them, and neither shall he keep.
