Over My Dead Body

Intro:A(no 3rd)  Asus  A(no 3rd)

Am                       Asus
After the Nazis we were baited by the Russian bear
       Am                                        g a g G
Our liberators wanted Poland for a thoroughfare
Am                       Asus
I was a victim of December nineteen eighty one
       Am                                                    g a g G
I took a final beating from the blunt end of a Russian gun.

Am
You plant your missiles while our people wait in line for bread
Am7                                               g g g G  g g g G
You hand an army tank above us by a bloody thread.
Am7
You bought our government, they crawl like bleating sheep to you
Am7                                               g g g G  g g g G g g g G
We know from history that human life is cheap to you.

CHORUS
Am     C  /  D     E
Over my dead body redemption draweth night
Am     C  /  D     E
Over my dead body I hear the battle cry
Am     C  /  D     E
Try and blow out the fire, you're fanning the flames
      Am  /  G  /  D /  F / E
We're gonna rise up from the ashes 'till we're ashes again.

You make a mockery of all that we hold sacred  here
You drive us underground in hopes that we will disappear
We seek our sanctuary where the altar candle burns
Our dignity's a legacy the cross of Jesus reaffirms

Chorus

After the Nazis we were baited by the Russian bear
Our liberators wanted Poland as a thoroughfare
Rise up, my brothers, don't despair the Iron Curtain's rod
Someday we'll draw the string assisted by the hand of God.

Am7 throughout
I was a victim of December nineteen eighty one
I took a final beating from the blunt end of a Russian gun.
You made a memory, the memory will multiply
You may kill the body but the spirit, it will never die.

Am     C  /  D     E     Am / G / D
Over my dead body redemption draweth night
Am     C  /  D     E    Am / G / D
Over my dead body I hear the battle cry
Am     C  /  D     E  Am
Try and blow out the fire, you're fanning the flames
G/D     Am  /  G  /  D /  F / E
We're gonna rise up from the ashes 'till we're ashes again.
