G D7 G D7 G C G D7 G

G Em G C D GWhen Britain first, at heaven s command,
D G D Em A7 Darose from out the azure main
Bm D G D A7 DArose, arose, arose from out the azure main.
G C Am C A7 DThis was the charter, the charter of the land,
G D7 G D7 G C G D7 GAnd guardian angels sang the strain.
G CRule Britannia!
Am C A7 DBritannia rule the waves.
G D7 G D7 G C G D7 GBritons never, never, never shall be slaves.
G CRule Britannia!
Am C A7 DBritannia rule the waves.
G D7 G D7 G C G D7 GBritons never, never, never shall be slaves.
G Em G C D GThe nations not so blest as thee,
D G D Em A7 DMust in their turn to tyrants fall,
Bm D G D Must in their turn, must in their turn,
A7 D To tyrants fall,
G C While thou shall flourish,
Am C A7 DShall flourish great and free,
G D7 G D7 G C G D7 GThe dread and envy of them all.
G CRule Britannia!
Am C A7 DBritannia rule the waves.

G CRule Britannia!
Am C A7 DBritannia rule the waves.
G D7 G D7 G C G D7 GBritons never, never, never shall be slaves.
Still more majestic shalt thou rise, More dreadful from each foreign stroke. More dreadful, more dreadful From each foreign stroke. As the loud blast that tears the skies, Serves but to root thy native oak.
G CRule Britannia!
Am C A7 DBritannia rule the waves.
G D7 G D7 G C G D7 GBritons never, never, never shall be slaves.
Thee haughty tyrants never shall tame, All their attempts to bend thee down, All their attempts, all their attempts To bend thee down, Will but arouse thy generous flame. But work their woe and thy renown.
G CRule Britannia!
Am C A7 DBritannia rule the waves.
G D7 G D7 G C G D7 GBritons never, never, never shall be slaves.
To thee belongs the rural reign, Thy cities shall with commerce shine, Thy cities shall, thy cities shall With commerce shine. All thine shall be the subject main, And every shore it circles thine.
G CRule Britannia!
Am C A7 DBritannia rule the waves.
G D7 G D7 G C G D7 GBritons never, never, never shall be slaves.
G CRule Britannia!
Am C A7 DBritannia rule the waves.
G D7 G D7 G C G D7 GBritons never, never, never shall be slaves.
