[Intro]
F G Gm F   F G Gm F
F G Gm F   F G Gm F

[Verse 1]
F G Gm F Poor britannia, drowning in your waves
F G Gm F With the body of the unknown soldier, and the best of the brave
Dm Am Bb F I have known you ever since I was a child
Am Dm Bb C How come you don't salute me now when I smile
[Verse 2]
F G Gm F You was always so young, and on all o' that money
F G Gm F How come new mourners pass you by and think it's so funny
Dm Am Bb F I'd be there with you but I'm chained unto this stake
Am Dm Bb C F For I am loyalty but my mast I cannot forsake
F G Gm F F G Gm F [Verse 3]
F G Gm F I looked down on a bunch of amusements, I looked down walls
F G Gm F I've looked on hangings 'n parades 'n city halls
Dm Am Bb F And I've seen love in so many living rooms
Am Dm Bb F And I've seen rich men slowly die inside their tombs
[Bridge]
C Dm G C I know we're just two charms but it's heavy on my mind
Am Dm Bb C Have faith in me I said, now, look at time
C Dm G C I know you're just a victim of your history
Am Dm Bb Trust in me, I said and, you would be free
F G Gm F F G Gm F [Verse 4]
F G Gm F You pull me up, and you pull me down
F G Gm F And when the queen's in residence, I hang around
Dm Am Bb F I don't wave madly 'cos the climate's civilised
Am Dm Bb C Just flutter sadly 'cos I'm, old 'n I'm wise
[Verse 5]
F G Gm F And you, you been up, and you, you been down
F G Gm F You been through many things I know you been around
Dm Am Bb F I have fought armies for you in the, conflicts of the past
Am Dm Bb C F Britannia, I implore you, do not lower me by half
[Outro] F G Gm F F G Gm F F G Gm F F G Gm F
