Van Diemans Land Chords

   
Van Diemen's Land - U2
chord transcription by stefano (barleycorn@infinito.it)

tune your guitar one half step lower.

chords for the 1st verse:

         G  C            G   Gsus4
Hold me now, oh hold me now
          Em C            D
Til this hour has gone around.
         Em                 C
And I'm gone on the rising tide
        G D               G
For to face Van Diemen's Land.

same chord pattern for all the other verses:
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/u/u2/van_diemans_land_crd_ver_2.html ]
It's a bitter pill I swallow here
To be read from one so dear.
We fought for justice and not for gain
But the magistrate sent me away.

Now the kings will rule and the poor will toil
And tear their hands as they tear the soil.
But a day will come in this dawning age
When an honest man sees and honest wage.

Hold me now, oh hold me now
Til this hour has gone around.
And I'm gone on the rising tide
For to face Van Diemen's Land.

Still the gunman and widows pay
A scarlet coat now a black beret.
They thought that blood and sacrifice
Could out of death bring forth a life.
