Intro:  / G - - - / C - - - / x2

 

G                              C                      

    From father to son, the blood runs thin,

D                            A                 

    ooohhh, see the faces frozen still  

     F (2)

against the wind        

 

G                             C

       The seam is split   The coal-face cracked                   

G                            C 

    The lines are long     There's no going back

G                                    C 

     Through hands of steel     And heart of stone

G                       C 

     Our labor day    Has come and

 

Bridge:

   D                     A

Gone.  And they leave me holdin' on

   F (2)

In Red Hill Town  See the lights go down on

 

Chorus:

G                  D

    Hanging on  You're all that's left to

   F             C 

hold on to     I'm still waiting

G                         D

    I'm hanging on      You're all that's left to

   F (2)

hold on to

 

G                        C

    The glass is cut   The bottle run dry

G                             C

    Our love runs cold   In the caverns of the night

G                                    C 

    We're wounded by fear    Injured in doubt

G                            C 

    I can lose myself   You I can't live

 

Bridge II:

      D                        A

without    Yeah, you keep me holdin' on

   F (2)

In Red Hill Town  See the lights go down on      

 

Chorus

   

G                               C

    We scorch the earth  Set fire to the sky

G                                   C

   And we stooped so low   To reach so high

G                   C

   A link is lost  The chain undone

G                         C

    We wait all day    For night to

  D                  Am              F (2)

come   And it comes like a hunted child

 

Chorus:

G                  D

    Hanging on  You're always left to

   F             C 

hold on to     I'm still waiting

G                         D

    I'm hanging on      You're always left to

   F (2)

hold on to

 

Outro:

G         D

Love  slowly stripped away

F                C

Love    has seen its better day

G                 D

  Hanging on     Lights go out on

   F         C 

Red Hill      Lights go down on

   G        D 

Red Hill      Lights go down on

   F (3)                

Red Hill’s town    Lights go down on

   C (let ring)
