Safe and Secure

 

D   A        †††††† I am told that long ago

G   D        †††††† men were men and women were gold.

D   A        †††††† All was pure as fallen snow.

G   D        †††††† God would save us.  Thatís all we had to know.

G   D D7 †††††† Now thatís all gone away. 

E    A        †††††† And so we blame it on the passing of the day.

D   A        †††††† Once we were safe and secure. 

G   D        †††††† Now it seems nobodyís sure.

 

D   A        †††††† Times were when we knew

G   D        †††††† the villains wore red and the heroes wore blue.

D   A        †††††† Wrong was wrong and right was right.

G   D D7 †††††† The good guys always won in the heat of the fight.

G   D        †††††† Now thatís all disappeared.

E    A        †††††† And so we live with all that

D   A   ††††††††††† we once never feared.

D   A        †††††† Once we were safe and secure. 

G   D        †††††† Now it seems nobodyís sure.

 

D   A        †††††† We were brave and we were young.

G   D        †††††† We met every challenge. Each and every one.

D   A        †††††† We stood tall and we stood strong.

G   D D7 †††††† The whole world gathered Ďround us and sang our nationís song.

G   D        †††††† Now thatís all done and said.

E    A        †††††† And so we look behind for all we had ahead.

D   A        †††††† Once we were safe and secure. 

G   D        †††††† Now it seems nobodyís sure.

D   A        †††††† Once we were safe and secure.  

G   D        †††††† Now it seems nobodyís sure.
