chorus:
G                  Em             D                 C
Your sword's grown old and rusty, burnt beneath the rising sun
G              Em             D                  C
It's locked up like a trophy, forgetting all the things it's done
G               Em                       D                    C
And though it's been a long time, you're right back where you started from
G        Em                D                 C
I see it in your eyes that now you’re giving up the gun


verse 1:
G              Em                      D             C
When I was 17, I had wrists like steel and I felt complete
G                     Em                     D           C
And now my body fades behind a brass charade and I'm obsolete
G                         Em                        D                   C
But if the chance remains to see those better days, I'd cut the cannons down
G                         Em                       D                       C
My ears are blown to bits from all the rifle hits, but still I crave that 
sound



chorus:
G                  Em             D                 C
Your sword's grown old and rusty, burnt beneath the rising sun
G              Em             D                  C
It's locked up like a trophy, forgetting all the things it's done
G               Em                       D                    C
And though it's been a long time, you're right back where you started from
G        Em                D                 C
I see it in your eyes that now you’re giving up the gun



verse 2:
G                       Em                  D                       C
I heard you play guitar down at a seedy bar where skinheads used to fight
G                   Em                     D                C
Your Tokugawa smile and your garbage style used to save the night
G                         Em                         D                     C
You felt the coming wave, told me we'd all be brave, you said you wouldn't 
flinch
G                            Em                    D                    C
But in the years that passed since I saw you last, you haven't moved an inch



chorus:
G                  Em             D                 C
Your sword's grown old and rusty, burnt beneath the rising sun
G              Em             D                  C
It's locked up like a trophy, forgetting all the things it's done
G               Em                       D                    C
And though it's been a long time, you're right back where you started from
G        Em                D                 C
I see it in your eyes that now you’re giving up the gun



Bridge:
G         Em
I see you shine in your way
D             C
Go on, go on, go on (repeat)



chorus:
G                  Em             D                 C
Your sword's grown old and rusty, burnt beneath the rising sun
G              Em             D                  C
It's locked up like a trophy, forgetting all the things it's done
G               Em                       D                    C
And though it's been a long time, you're right back where you started from
G        Em                D                 C
I see it in your eyes that now you’re giving up the gun
