THE LAND WE LOVE 4/4 (Capo on 1st fret)
(C)In the mornin’ (F)of my (C)life
I have lived with (D)fear and (G)strife
(C)I have seen so (F)many (C)die
I have watched their (G)loved ones (C)cry.
But the (G)years have (G7)passed and (F)I’ve grown (C)old
The (G)songs are (G7)sung and the (F)stories (C)told
Of those dark days when (F)I was (C)young
Of those sad times in the (G7)land we (C)love.
I grew up to love our land
The games, the heroes and the songs
I had my dreams like most young men
That we could live in peace again.
In the twilight of my life
I still live with fear and strife
And this new day I hope again
For peace and love throughout our land
For the years have passed and I’ve grown old
The songs are sung and the stories told
Of those dark days when I was young
Of those sad times in the land we love.
