CEASEFIRE Lyrics And Guitar Chords (Colum Sands, 1996)

Lyrics and chords fit Colum Sands’ version from the album ‚All My Winding Journeys’ Gsus4 = 3-2-0-0-1-3 (This chord is optional, guitar work by Marc Fahrbach. Below is an image of the Gsus4 chord.

Tuning 4/4
(Em)Ceasefire in the city, (D)ceasefire in the town
(C)Ceasefire on the country roads that (D)wander up and down
(Em)Ceasefire in the garden, (D)flowers all around
She (C)walks along the gravel path, her (D)feet the only (D7)sound.

Tuning 3/4
And (G)down in the (D)valley the (Em)children are (D)playing
She (C)watches them (Am)laugh in the (G)sun (Gsus4)
A (D)little girl's (D7)teaching her (D)brother to (D7)walk
And al(D)ready he's (C)trying to (G)run (Gsus4)
And (G)down in the (D)valley the (Em)children are (D)waiting
To(C)morrow a (Am)new day will (G)start (Gsus4)
And she (D)knows every (D7)time when she (D)puts her arms (D7)round them
The (D)future is (D7)close to her (G)heart. (Gsus4)

Am-Am-C-C-Am-D-D-D-D

Tuning 4/4

(Em)Ceasefire in the winter, (D)ceasefire in the spring
(C)Ceasefire through the summer days of (D)roundabouts and swings
(Em)Ceasefire on the ocean, (D)ceasefire on the land
She (C)opens up the little gate with (D)flowers in her (D7)hand.

Tuning 3/4
And (G)down in the (D)city they're (Em)counting the (D)money
The (C)vultures are (Am)waiting to (G)feed (Gsus4)
The (D)merchants who (D7)deal in the (D)weapons of (D7)war
Know that (D)peace is the (C)last thing they (G)need (Gsus4)
They (G)feasted in (D)Flanders, Sai(Em)gon, Sara(D)jevo
To (C)them every (Am)cause is the (G)same (Gsus4)
And where (D)boots trample (D7)reason and (D)guns do the (D7)talking
They'll (D)set out their (D7)stalls once a(G)gain. (Gsus4)

Am-Am-C-C-Am-D-D-D-D

 

Tuning 4/4
(Em)Ceasefire in the morning, (D)ceasefire afternoon
(C)Ceasefire in the evening and (D)night is coming soon
(Em)Ceasefire in the graveyard, she (D)stops and stands alone
Where (C)time is testing every name that's (D)written into (D7)stone.

Tuning 3/4

And (G)down in the (D)valley the (Em)children are (D)playing
She (C)watches them (Am)laugh in the (G)sun (Gsus4)
A (D)little girl's (D7)teaching her (D)brother to (D7)walk
And al(D)ready he's (C)trying to (G)run (Gsus4)
And (G)down in the (D)valley the (Em)children are (D)waiting
To(C)morrow a (Am)new day will (G)start (Gsus4)
And she (D)knows every (D7)time when she (D)puts her arms (D7)round them
The (D)future is (D7)close to her (G)heart. (Gsus4)
