 Runrig - The Everlasting Gun


CAPO: 2nd fret


INTRO:  G C G C Am D G C G 
So here you go, you're on your own
     C D 
The flower blooms so freely
     G C G 
For fortune, musket, fife and drum
      C D 
Your faking days won't leave you


        C Am D 
'Cause young man now you nurse the gun
        C Am D 
You're nervous in the morning
        G Am G C 
'Neath shattered skies your body lies
        Am C D G D C D 
On the dark side of reason


     G C G 
The blood is lusting in your heart
      C D 
Your flesh red hot and lonely
     G C G 
And vengeance gulps the bitter cup
      C D 
That once held wine so sweetly


     C Am D 
But young man, legends still unfold
     C Am D 
For regiment, for glory
     G Am G C 
You search for gold, like you've been told
         Am C D     
And the light of day won't leave you


CHORUS:
     G 
But run
        C D G 
You'll never turn and run
     C D G 
The everlasting gun
      C D G 
Your day will surely come
        C D   
You'll never run 


INTERLUDE:  G C Am D G C Am D G C G 
For fickle kings, you click the heels
         C D 
Where a bleak moon leans so weary
    G C G 
Forgotten names on faceless graves
      C D G 
Your father's home awaits you


 C Am D 
Oh, the warrior is not the fool
     C Am D 
The refugee of freedom
         G Am G C 
But the outlawed man who holds no gun
        Am C D 
On the dark side of reason


CHORUS:
     G 
But run
        C D G 
You'll never turn and run
     C D G 
The everlasting gun
      C D G 
Your day will surely come
        C D   
You'll never run 


CHORUS:
     G 
But run
        C D G 
You'll never turn and run
     C D G 
The everlasting gun
      C D G 
Your day will surely come
        C D   
You'll never run


OUTRO:   (## fade to end ##)
