Peter Paul And Mary – One Tin Soldier chords

Verse I
D A/C# Bm Bm/AListen children to a story that was written long ago
G D Em7 Em7/A'Bout a kingdom on a mountain, and the valley folk below
D A/C# Bm Bm/AOn the mountain was a treasure buried deep beneath a stone

D F#m G AGo ahead and hate your neighbor, go ahead and cheat a friend
D F#m G ADo it in the name of heaven, you can justify it in the end
D F#m G D There won't be any trumpets blowing, come the judgment day
G No Chord On the bloody morning after - one tin soldier rides away. Verse II
D A/C# Bm Bm/ASo the people of the valley sent a message up the hill
G D Em7 Em7/AAsking for the buried treasure, tons of gold for which they'd kill
D A/C# Bm Bm/ACame an answer from the kingdom: “With our brothers we will share
G D Em7 Em7/AAll the secrets of our mountain, all the riches buried there.”
Chorus Verse III
D A/C# Bm Bm/ANow the valley cried with anger, mount your horses, draw your sword!
G D Em7 Em7/AAnd they killed the mountain people, sure they’d won their just reward
D A/C# Bm Bm/ANow they stood beside the treasure on the mountain dark and red
G D Turned the stone and looked beneath it -
Em7 Em7/A"Peace on Earth" was all it said.
