And the

mountain moved it’s eyes to the

Where the

snow had saved a

And the  
G 
women once proud clutched the  
C 
heart of the crowd
 
as the  
G 
boulders smashed down from the

mountains 
 
hand.
 
And the  
Am 
magic in the stare of the
C 
wild-eyed boy said
Am 
“Stop Free Cloud,
C 
they won’t think to
E7sus 
cut me down, no,
E7 
no, 
 
no!”
 
But the  
F 
cottages

fell like a

playing card

hell
 
and the

tears on the

wise 
 
boy
 
came  
F 
trembling

down to the
