    Am                    F

    C                G          F         G



Am F    [2x]
C G F G [2x]

Am                  F
   Lying all night, screaming in pain
Am                             F
   Defending the cross in the Belfast rain
C            G             F             G
   But Billy saw me at the end of the street
        C           G           F                G
   So I   lit up my torch and embraced him with heat

Am                      F
   ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? 340 AD
Am                         F
   Threw me in a quarry no way to get free
C              G       F           G
   I called on Hank to give me my life
          C               G           F        G
   And he   came on his black horse Obsidian Knife

Am                              F
   It happened one night, I was lying in bed
Am                   F
   Eyes wide open, I could have been dead
C           G             F              G
   Sky lady came with her eyes shining brightly
           C               G                 F           G
   And the   bears and the billies and the police took flight

Am                                     F
   But I called them all back, and the sky lady too
Am                                     F
   The bears and the billies and the police, me and you
C          G        F          G
   We laid down our bombs and bows
       C                G                F         G
   And   drank to their health on the Anatolian plateau

Am                      F
   From New Scotland to Calgary
Am                        F
   The geese are high and so are we
C           G    F       G
   We don't even need a map
C                G             F        G
   We're way too fast for the highway trap

Am                      F
   So hit the road, and shine a light
Am                               F
   I think we're going to find a path tonight
C           G            F        G
   Shooting star and the moon is bad
            C           G         F       G
   It's the   best damn omen that we ever had
