Verse:

Am             C          G                 D
Throw down the sword, the fight is done and over

F          C                Gsus4   G
We neither lost and neither won

Am       C       G           D
To cast away the fury of the battle

F           C              D
And turn my weary eyes for home

F          G7           C                         C/B
There were times when I stood at death's own door

Am   G             Fmaj7
Only hoping for an answer.


Am / / / C / / / G / / / D / / /

F / / / C / / / Gsus4 / / / G / / /


Throw down the sword and leave the glory
A story time can never change
To walk the road, the load I have to carry
A journey's end, a wounded soul
There were times when I stood at death's own door
Only searching for an answer.
