Raid On Entebbe

D      Bb     A      G
D
on the shores of a lake named after a late queen of england
Bb
i heard new rumors of war.
A
the sun was a red ball up in the summer sky.
G
i saw my sister standing in the doorway.
D
she had that look on her face that reminded me of you.
Bb
the reports were coming hourly and the sky was blue.
A
they were shifting the power again.
G
they always do this when i come home.

D       Bb     A      G

D
i tucked my shirt in, though i don't know why.
Bb
shielded my eyes from the light up in the sky
A
'cause it was shining, blazing, like a highway flare
G
in the incredibly impossibly dry air
D
i heard my mother call my sister to the kitchen again
Bb
and thought that everything was headed straight down the drain
A
they positioned themselves in strategic locations
G
i was beginning to lose my patience.
D                                    A                                           D  Bb  A  G  
if you'll just put your hand in mine we're gonna leave all our troubles behind

D      Bb      G       A
