                Down On Our Own Shield / Jakob Dylan
--------------------------------------
Intro: F           Dm        (x2)

                        F
It's a struggle, it's a shame
                   Dm
It's all give and no take
              C                         Bb5
Whatever, it is now, it's right up to our waist
                    F                        Dm
It's a pity, it's a shame to see it all slip away
                 C                         Bb5
I've seen you worried babe, but never this way
            F                C
We hold our ground, we don't kneel
      Dm  Dm(maj7)  Bbmaj7
If we go            down we go
Bb5             F
Down on our own shield
                F
It's a river of tears
                    Dm
And we're in over our ears
               C                  Bb5
In the dark it rides off with our better years
                F
It's a bottomless well
            Dm
It's a little overkill
                 C
It's the end of a dragon's tail
               Bb5
That's whipping round our heels
            F               C
But we don't bow, we make no deals
      Dm  Dm(maj7)  Bbmaj7
If we go            down we go
Bb5             F
Down on our own shield
Dm                          F
   In this corner ladies and gentlemen
         C                         G7
Weighing in, all along my love for her is strong
Bb5                  F                   Bb5
   We scaled pillars to here tonight
                           C
It's not the kind of trick you get to pull twice
               F
It's an ambush girl
               Dm
A cold-blooded low down dirty world
         C
See them yellow lanters walk
           Bb5
A circle around our bit of earth
                    F
It's a turn for the worse
                    Dm
It's off with their heads if they don't learn
           C
We do this over their dead bodies
             Bb5
Before it's over mine or yours
         F            C
We don't beg for mercy dear
      Dm  Dm(maj7) Bbmaj7
If we go           down we go
Bb5             F
Down on our own shield
Dm   Dm(maj7) Bbmaj7
Down  we      go
Bb5
Down on our own shield

I am a songwriter (or at least like to call myself one) and this is one of the most
heart breakingly poignant songs I have heard in a long time.

Note - the Dm(maj7)-Bmaj7 run during the chorus is just my attempt to include the bass
line run in an acoustic accompaniment. When researching the names for these chords the
chord that I have labeled as Dm(maj7) was also marked as D m7 (which didn't jive with my 
understanding of theory and chord building) and as an F6 (which it is, just inverted).
