    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)

    Red Hill
