CAPO on 2nd fret

INTRO:
/ Am / Em / Emsus4 / Em / Fmaj7 / F / E / E7 /
/ Am / Em / Emsus4 / Em / Fmaj7 / F / E / E7 /

Am                                           Em
You burn the truth at midnight; The flames light up the sky.
      Fmaj7             F                             E                         E7
You stand around and warm your hands, and watch our freedoms die.
      Am                                       Em
You start your wars for Mammon; For capital and greed;
Fmaj7                F                    E                        E7
Start your wars for land and oil, and watch our children bleed…  

CHORUS
Am                      Em            Emsus4   Em
No blood for oil! No oil for your ‘free  -----  dom’,
        Fmaj7     F                             E                E7
Your freedom is worthless; When you pay with our lives.
Am                       Em           Emsus4   Em
No blood for oil! No oil for your ‘free  -----  dom’,
       Fmaj7      F                             E                 E7
Your freedom is worthless; When you pay with our lives.

PLAY: Am / Em / Emsus4 / Em / Fmaj7 / F / E / E7 /

You shackle us with terror; You blind us all with fear.
And all the while you tear away, at all that we hold dear.
Turn neighbour against neighbour; Breed hate beneath the sun.
Smash our doors; start your wars, with a bible and a gun…

CHORUS

BRIDGE
      Fmaj7          F                          Em
And all around the world, the calls for peace crash in like waves,
      Fmaj7           F                    E                   E7
But you ignore our very cries, and send us to our graves…

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK:
/ Am / Em / Emsus4 / Em / Fmaj7 / F / E / E7 /
/ Am / Em / Emsus4 / Em / Fmaj7 / F / E / E7 /

Repeat CHORUS as required

                    Am
CODA: I said, No blood for oil!
