The Lost Men

Cm
We are the lost men
Bb
We have cut the skin of outside things
Cm
Bb
We had the worst of it

G#maj7 Bb
Climb up Observation Hill and stare into the South
G#maj7 Bb
Wooden crosses in the wind and frost smoke on the sound
G#maj7
this is how we fall
Gm
this is how we fall
G#maj7 Gm
this is how we fall in the white warfare of the South

Cm
We are the lost men
Bb
We have cut the skin of outside things
Cm
the naked soul of man
Bb
we had the worst of it

We saw God in all his splendours
Read the text that nature renders
some of us came through
we had the worst of it

Suffered, starved, grovelled down
yet grasped at glory, greater in the
greatness of the whole
we had the worst of it

G#maj7
this is how we fall
Gm
this is how we fall
G#maj7 Gm
this is how we fall in the white warfare of the South

Cm Bb Cm Bb

We are the lost men
We have cut the skin from outside things
Some of us came through
we had the worst of it

Who of us can question any hand that fate can deal?
To strive, to seek, to find and not to yield
To strive, to seek, to find and not to yield
G#maj7 Gm
To strive, to seek, to find and not to yield
G#maj7 Gm
To strive, to seek, to find and not to yield

Cm Bb Cm Bb

G#maj7 Bb
Climb up Observation Hill and stare into the South
G#maj7 Bb
Wooden crosses in the wind and frost smoke on the sound
G#maj7
this is how we fall
Gm
this is how we fall
G#maj7 Gm
this is how we fall in the white warfare of the South
