Am G Dm Am His roar fury's fire, and his scales sharpened scythes. Am G Dm Am Men ran and they cowered, and they fought and they died. C Dm Am G They burned and they bled as they issued their cries. Am G Dm Am We need saviors to free us from Alduin's rage. Am G Dm Am Heroes on the field of this new war to wage. Am G Dm Am And if Alduin wins, man is gone from this world. C Dm Am G Lost in the shadow of the black wings unfurled. C G F But then came the Tongues on that terrible day. C G F Am Steadfast as winter, they entered the fray.

F G Am C Gave the gift of the Voice, ushered in a new Age. F G Am D If Alduin is eternal, then eternity's done. F Am G Am For his story is over and the dragons are gone.
