Show Of Hands – Roots chords
http://www.showofhands.co.uk/ Down-tuned two semi tones, alternatively standard tuning in EmAmNow it's been twenty-five years or more,I've roamed this land from shore to shoreDsus4From Tyne to Tamar, Severn to ThamesAmFrom moor to vale, from peak to fenAmPlayed in cafes and pubs and bars,I've stood in the street with my old guitarDsus4But I'd be richer than all the restAmIf I had a pound for each requestC FFor 'Duelling Banjos' 'American Pie'C GIts enough to make you cryAm F'Rule Britannia' or 'Swing Low'GAre they the only songs the English know?Am FSeed, bud, flower, fruitAm GThey're never gonna grow without their rootsCsus4 Dsus4 AmBranch, stem, shoots - they need rootsAfter the speeches when the cake's been cut The disco is over and the bar is shut At christening, birthday, wedding or wake What can we sing until the morning breaks? When the Indian, Asians, Afro, Celts It's in their blood, below the belt They're playing and dancing all night long So what have they got right that we've got wrong? Seed, bud, flower, fruit Never gonna grow without their roots Branch, stem, shoots - we need rootsAmHaul away boys let them goOut in the wind and the rain and snowDsusWe've lost more than well ever knowRound the rocky shores of England And a minister said his vision of hell Is three folk singers in a pub near Wells Well I've got a vision of urban sprawl It's pubs where no one ever sings at all And everyone stares at a great big screen Over-paid soccer stars, prancing teens Australian soap, American rap Estuary English, baseball caps And we learn to be ashamed before we walk Of the way we look and the way we talk Without our stories or our songs How will we know where weve come from? I've lost St George in the Union Jack It's my flag too and I want it back Seed, bud, flower, fruit Never gonna grow without their roots Branch, stem, shoots - we need roots Haul away boys let them go Out in the wind and the rain and snow We've lost more than we'll ever know Round the rocky shores of England
