Alarm
INTRO: Cm

VERSE 1:
Cm                                             Fm
Pit shaft wheels turn for the last time in the Rhondda tonight
    A#                                          G
The Davey lamps that shone so brightly, there's no more need for their light
Cm                                        Fm
As the last piece of coal is cut from the belly of the black seamed hole
  A#                             G
A man walks home alone, past the church full of mourning souls

CHORUS:
Fm             A#              D#             D         Cm
Throughout his lifetime he has fought, he has given his life
Fm               A#                 Cm       
In tears the congregation sing come Rhondda oh my lord                         
G#                       Fm               
Great is the rape of the fair country
   C#                D#                 G#
To Botany Bay for my great grandfathers deportation sale
G#                     Fm          
Great, so great is the fair country
C#           D#                   Fm  
Great is the need for a new south Wales
 
VERSE 2:
Cm                                              Fm 
The slag heap stares, it blocks out the sky, it keeps this Rhondda grey
    A#                                           G
The stale beer spills from angry drinkers, their arguments do the same
  Cm                                                  Fm
A choir voice cries, it shatters the silence, where's the future in this place
    A#                             G
The question hangs unanswered, all eyes on a new born babe

CHORUS:
Fm         A#                  D#        D          Cm
In another lifetime men fought hard, men gave their lives
Fm                         A#                    Cm    
For the charter that would save their sons, come Rhondda oh my lord
G#                         Fm
Great, great change in the fair country
    C#                   D#                  G#
The future lies with our sons and daughters, south will meet with north
G#                        Fm
Say, say a prayer for the fair country, 
C#           D#                   Fm
Great is the need for a new south Wales

Throughout a lifetime men have fought, men have given their lives
Fm            A#                 Cm
To hear a congregation sing come Rhondda oh my lord 
G#                         Fm
Great, great change in the fair country

Cm  A#  G#                      Cm  A#  G#                      Cm  A#  G#
Oh, oh, someone hear my prayer, oh, oh, someone hear my prayer, oh, oh, someone hear my prayer
