Natives Lyrics And Chords.Written By  Paul Doran. Made famous by Christy Moore. If you want to play alone with Christy just put a capo on the second fret and you will be in the same key as Christy.,,,,,Great song.
 


For[A] all of our[E] languages we can't[A] communicate
For all of our[E] native tongues[F#m] we're all natives here
Sons of[E] their[F#m] fathers' dream the[A] same dream
The sound[E] of forbidden[F#m] words becomes a scream
Voices in[D] anger, vic[E]tims of history
Plundered[F#m] and set a[E]side, grown[A] fat on swallowed pride.

With promises of paradise and gifts of beads and knives
Missionaries and pioneers are soldiers in disguise
Saviours and conquerors they make us wait
The fishers of men they wave their truth like bait
With the touch of a stranger's hand innocence turns to shame
The spirit that dwelt within now sleeps out in the rain.

For all of our languages we can't communicate
For all of our native tongues we're all natives here
The scars of the past are slow to disappear
The cries of the dead are always in our ears
Only the very safe can talk about wrong or right
Of those who are forced to choose some will choose to fight
For all of our languages we can't communicate
