Singing The Spirit Home Eric Bogle Song Lyrics And Guitar Chords.4/4 timing,  Intro: D-D-D-D. Guitar tab by Marc.

Intro: D-D-D-D
They came (D)for him in the (Bm)morning, an (G)hour before (D)dawning
The pale white moon was (Bm)waning in the (G)African (A)sky -A
The (D)cell door flew wide (Bm)open, (G)they stood looking (D)at him
He saw no mercy (Bm)in their hearts, no (G)pity (A)in their (D)eyes
D-F#m-Bm-Bm
As they (D)took him and they (Bm)bound him, tied his (G)trembling hands be(D)hind him
He felt his courage (Bm)leave him, his (G)manhood disa(A)ppear -A
His (D)legs would not su(Bm)pport him, so (G)from the cell they (D)dragged him
He sobbed and screamed and (Bm)cursed them in his (G)loneli(A)ness and (D)fear
D-F#m-Bm-Bm
 
 
Chorus 1
(D)Chains, (A)chains, (D)chains
How (G)many souls have (A)died in freedom's (D)name
To (G)some it is a (A)way of life, to (D)others just a (Bm)word
To (G)some it is a (A)snow-white dove, to (D)some a bloody (Bm)sword
But un(G)til the (A)last chains (D)fall, -F#m-Bm
(G)Freedom will make (A)slaves of us (D)all -F#m-Bm-F#m-G-Em-A
With (D)faces closed and (Bm)hidden the (G)white guards walked be(D)side him
Indifferent to his (Bm)pleading - they'd been (G)down this path be(A)fore -A
But (D)other eyes were (Bm)watching, (G)other ears were (D)listening
Other hearts beat (Bm)with him in his (G)final (A)desperate (D)hour
D-F#m-Bm-Bm
 
 
From the (D)darkness of that (Bm)prison came the (G)sound of his brothers (D)singing
Courage, their voices (Bm)told him, you (G)do not walk a(A)lone -A
From their (D)cells beyond the (Bm)shadow he (G)heard their voices (D)echo
As in love and pride and (Bm)sorrow they (G)sang his (A)spirit (D)home
D-F#m-Bm-Bm
 
 
Repeat Chorus 1
And their (D)song of hope and (Bm)freedom, it (G)rang inside that (D)prison
It beat against the (Bm)iron bars and (G)crashed against the (A)stone -A
As in their (D)fear and hate they (Bm)hung him, the (G)last sound that filled his (D)being
Was his brothers singing, (Bm)singing, (G)singing his (A)spirit (D)home
 
 
Chorus 2
(D)Courage, brother, you (A)do not walk a(D)lone
We shall walk with you and (A)sing your spirit (D)home
Repeat chorus 2 with music fading
Repeat chorus 2 a capella
Repeat chorus 2 a capella fading
