Van Diemans Land

U2

 

 

 

Hold me now, oh hold me now

G C G C G

 

Till this hour has gone around

Em C D

 

And I'm gone on the rising tide

Bm Em C

 

For to face Van Diemen's land

G D G C G

 

 

It's a bitter pill I swallow here

To be rent from one so dear

We fought for justice and not for gain

But the magistrate sent me away

 

Now kings will rule and the poor will toil

And tear their hands as they tear the soil

But a day will come in the dawning age

When an honest man sees an honest wage

 

Hold me now, hold me now

Till this hour has gone around

And I'm gone on the rising tide

For to face Van Diemen's land

 

Still the gunman rules and widows pay

A scarlet coat now a black beret

They thought that blood and sacrifice

Could out of death bring forth a life
