1999 Lyrics And Guitar Chords 4/4 (Tommy Sands)

Lyrics and chords fit Tommy Sands’ version from his album ‘Beyond The Shadows’. Guitar tab by Marc.

Oh (C)I.R.A. and (Am)U.V.F. this (F)song is just for (C)you

As you sit down at the (Am)table now to (F)see what you can (G)do

At (F)last you’ve come to(G)gether after (C)all the tears and (F)time –F-F

It’s (C)sad you didn’t (G)do it back in (F)Nineteen (G)Sixty (C)Nine –C-C

 

(C)History calls you (Am)savages but I (F)know that isn’t (C)true

For we grew up to(Am)gether and (F)I am part of (G)you

We (F)all had dreams and (G)hopes and fears and (C)someone else to (F)blame –F-F

It (C)took so long to (G)realize our (F)dreams were (G)all the (C)same –C-C

 

Chorus

You (C)know our (F)dreams were all the (C)same

But (F)who would dare pro(C)claim

In the (F)anger and the (G)pain

Our (F)dreams were (G)all the (C)same

C-F-C-G   C-F-C-C

 

We (C)felt the taste of (Am)hunger when they (F)factory went a(C)way

And then they closed the (Am)hospital they (F)said it didn’t (G)pay

And (F)as the rich got (G)richer and kept (C)promising the (F)sky –F-F

(C)All we got were (G)promises and (F)coloured (G)flags to (C)fly –C-C

 

I re(C)member well your (Am)little girl she had (F)ribbons in her (C)hair

When she came to play that (Am)Summer’s day with the (F)children in the (G)square

To (F)think they could be (G)here today still (C)laughing and a(F)live –F-F

If (C)strong men had been (G)wise men in (F)Nineteen (G)Seventy (C)Nine –C-C

 

Chorus

 

It was (C)always all or (Am)nothing there was (F)nothing in bet(C)ween

Compromise was (Am)treachery - (F)that’s the way it (G)seemed

And (F)now we’re left with (G)nothing but a (C)future we must (F)find –F-F

And (C)count the cost of the (G)chances lost in (F)Nineteen (G)Eighty (C)Nine –C-C

 

Oh (C)I.R.A. and (Am)U.V.F. this (F)song is just for (C)you

As you sit down at the (Am)table now to (F)see what you can (G)do

At (F)last you’ve come to(G)gether after (C)all the tears and (F)time –F-F

It’s (C)sad you didn’t (G)do it back in (F)Nineteen (G)Ninety (C)Nine –C-C

 

Chorus
