-----------------------------------
Em   D   Am    x2

Em
He came dancing across the water
         D
With his galleons and guns
Am
Looking for a new world and a place in the sun
Em
And on the shore lay Montezuma
          D
With it's coco leaves and pearls
Am
In it's halls he often wandered with the secrets of the world
Em
And his subjects gather 'round him
         D
Like the leaves around the trees
Am
Clothed in many colors for the angry gods to see
Em
And the women all were beautiful
        D
And the men stood straight and strong
Am
He offered life and sacrifice so that others might go on

jam on * Em  D  Am * for a few times

Em
Now hate was just a legend
    D
And war was never known
Am
The people worked together and they lifted many stones
Em
And they carried them across the flatlands
D
But they died along the way
Am
Built up with their bare hands what we still can do today
      Em
And I know she's living there
    D
And loves me to this day
Am
Can't remember when or how I lost my way

jam on * Em  D  Am * for awhile...stop when it feels right

Em
There was this man, he wasn't satisfied
  D
He crossed all the oceans
                                Am
to find something else with his greedy hands and his
raping heart and his mind that said war to take everything
Em
He's looking down now
And I'm sorry for every time I raped you
And I'm sorry for every time I sold you
Am
And I'm sorry for every time I bought you
And I'm sorry for every time I hurt you
And I'm sorry for every time
I'm sorry for every time
I'm sorry for every time
Em
He came dancing across the waters
D
Cortez, Cortez
Am           [stop]
What a killer
