There was Asnow, white sF#mnow Fm Em C#m C#m7/B Clearly I remember from the windows they were watching While we fAroze down belF#mow Fm Em When the future'As architectured by aB carnival of idiots on C#mshow You'd better lie Blow
Chorus:
G#mIf you lAove G#mme wEon’t yoC#mu leBt meC#m know?
Verse 2: C#m C#m7/B Was a long and dark December when the banks became cathedrals
And the fog, becAame God F#m Fm Em PC#mriests clutched onto bibles C#m7/B Hollowed out to fit their rifles And the cAross held aF#mloft Fm Em ABury me in armour when I'm Bdead and hit the ground My nerves are C#mpoles that unfBroze
Chorus:
G#mIf you lAove G#mme wEon’t yoC#mu leBt meC#m know?
Solo: C#m C#m7/B A F# Fm Em C#m C#m7/B A F# Fm Em Verse 3:
I don't Awant to be a soldier who the Bcaptain of some sinking ship Would C#mstow, far Bbelow
Chorus:
So G#mif you lAove G#mme EWhy'd you C#mlet Bme C#mgo?
Outro:
A I Btook my C#mlove F#mdown to EvioC#mlet hillB A AThere Bwe C#msat G#min the snAow AAll Bthat C#mtime F#mshe was EsilC#ment stillB
So G#mIf you lAove G#mme Ewon’t yoC#mu leBt meA know? G#mIf you lAove G#mme, EWon't you C#mlet Bme C#mknow
