Travis Tritt - The Day The Sun Stood Still chords

      
Capo1 
 
C F C F 
 
C We were young and bound for glory
F Itchin' for a fight like you
G Bringin' hell and purgatory
Em To the boys who wore the Blue
F G And I thought I'd seen it all
Em Am Till the day night wouldn't fall
F Oh how the sun did blaze
G Wouldn't go down for days.
C I got shot and lost my rifle
F When the first wave hit the rise
G And the guns rolled out like thunder
Em And the black smoke burned my eyes
F G And I watched it all unfold
Em Am Just the way the Bible told
F Joshua's endless day
G Keepin' the night at bay.
Am And the soldiers kept a comin'
F Til the ground looked like a sea
G Of Blue and Grey
Am And I watched it from a distance
F G Wonderin' if I would've fought, or run away.
Chorus:
C The Day The Sun Stood Still
G How they beat the bloody drums
Am And the seconds moved like hours
F But the sunset never comes
C And the cannons shake the ground
G And the bullets test your will
Am Even shadows found no cover
F On that Godforsaken hill
G C F The Day The Sun Stood Still.
C And I watched them lean their shoulders
To the fearful hail of lead
G And I prayed for night to save us
Em And I cried and bowed my head
F G But the sun just kept a-creepin'
Em Am Cross a cold indifferent sky
F Castin' a deadly glow
G On all the men below.
Am All the hours in a lifetime
F G Don't add up to one while minute, in that s-un
Am And the heroes and the cowards
F G Look the same when they have fallen, by the gun.
Chorus2:
C The Day The Sun Stood Still
G And the North and South looked west
Am But the evening star was sleepin?
F And the daylight wouldn't rest
C Out on the killin? floor
G The red sun on the hill
Am Shinin' down on all the dead men
F With a strange and eerie chill
G C The Day The Sun Stood Still.
Bb F Do not judge, what you brother does
C Till you've walked a mile
G Rank by bloody file
Bb F G Who's to say, if you'll run or stay, and f-ight.
Chrous3:
C The Day The Sun Stood Still
G Is just beneath the skin
Am In the soul of every soldier
F Every battle that he's in
C The Day The Sun Stood Still
G Will haunt your dreams at night
Am And stalk your every sunrise
F Though you will not know it till
G C The Day The Sun Stood Still.
G How they beat the bloody drums
Am And the seconds moved like hours
F But the sunset never comes
C And the cannons shake the ground
G And the bullets test your will
Am Even shadows found no cover
F On that Godforsaken hill
G C F The Day The Sun Stood Still.
C F The Day The Sun Stood Still
C F The Day The Sun Stood Still
C The Day The Sun Stood Still.
