Chorus

A Your sword’s grown Fmold and rusty EBurnt beneath the Drising sun A It’s locked up Fmlike a trophy ForEgetting all the Dthings it’s done And though it’s been a long time You’re right back where you started from I see it in your eyes That now you’re giving up the gun

Verse

A When I was 17 Fm I had wrists like steel E And I felt comDplete And now my body fades Behind a brass charade And I’m obsolete But if the chance remained To see those better days I’d cut the cannons down My ears are blown to bits From all the rifle hits But I still crave that sound

Chorus

A Your sword’s grown Fmold and rusty EBurnt beneath the Drising sun A It’s locked up Fmlike a trophy ForEgetting all the Dthings it’s done And though it’s been a long time You’re right back where you started from I see it in your eyes That now you’re giving up the gun

Verse

A I heard you play guitar Fm Down at a seedy bar E Where skinheads used to Dfight Your Tokugawa smile And your garbage style Used to save the night You felt the coming wave Told me we’d all be brave You said you wouldn’t flinch But in the years that passed Since I saw you last You haven’t moved an inch

Chorus

A Your sword’s grown Fmold and rusty EBurnt beneath the Drising sun A It’s locked up Fmlike a trophy ForEgetting all the Dthings it’s done And though it’s been a long time You’re right back where you started from I see it in your eyes That now you’re giving up the gun

Bridge

x7): A I see you Fmshine in your way Go Eon, go on, go Don

Chorus

A Your sword’s grown Fmold and rusty EBurnt beneath the Drising sun A It’s locked up Fmlike a trophy ForEgetting all the Dthings it’s done And though it’s been a long time You’re right back where you started from I see it in your eyes That now you’re giving up the gun
