Intro 
G     D     Em     C     x2


Verse 1
    G                D     Em      C
A ghost of a mist was on the field
        G                D       Em    C
the grey and the green together
        G             D         Em       C
The noise of a distant farm machine
G              D             Em    C
out of the first light came

Verse 2
    G                  D        Em           C
A tattered necklace of hedge and trees
            G                 D        Em     C
on the southern side of the hill
       G                   D          Em        C
Betrays where the border runs between
           G            D                Em     C
where Mary Dunoon's boy fell

Chorus
D    C   Am    Em              
Easter, here again,      
  D/F#            Em/C   C/G G
a time for the blind to see
 D   C    Am    Em
Easter, surely now,      
      D/F#         C              Em/D   D  C/D   D   Em/D   D   C/D  D
can all of your hearts be free

Verse 3
G              D          Em       C
Out of the port of Liverpool
G                   D           Em    C
bound for the north of Ireland
        G                D              Em          C
The wash of the spray and horsetail waves
      G             D    Em      C
the roll of the sea below

Repeat chorus

                G
What will you do?      

Make a stone of your heart?
              Am
Will you set things right?      

When you tear them apart?
               C
Will you sleep at night?      
                                                  G
With the plough and the stars alight?


                G
What will you do?

With the wire & the gun?
            Am
That'll set things right

When it's said and done?
               C
Will you sleep at night?
                                       G
Is there so much love to hide?


G    Am    C    G    repeat / fade
