Words & Music by Chris de Burgh

         Am             G           Am
Wake up boys there's a light at the window,
       C             G             Am
I can hear someone knocking on the door,
There are voices in the street,
And the sound of running feet,
          F          G           Am
And they whisper the word: "Revolution"
There are men coming down from the valleys,
There are tall ships lying off the coast,
And they carry the light,
In the dark of the night,
Like a whisper in the wind - Revolution!
          Am        G         Am
Bring my gun and a handful of silver,
        C           G             Am
By the sea we will gather for the fight,
It's been so many years,
So many tears,
         F           G
We have lost once before,
         F             G7
Now we settle to the score,
          F            G         Am
When our cannons will roar - Revolution!
