Trojan Blues

Trojan Blues by Icehouse Verse 1: Am Fmaj7/A The soldiers standing on the shore G Am take up their golden shields Fmaj7/A You watch them from your room G Am high on the city wails Fmaj7/A In the distance on the shifting sea G a thousand coloured sails Am Is this the moment you made Fmaj7/A is this the way that you planned G you know it won`t be long now Chorus: G Dadd9 The finest treasures of kings E7sus4 all of those precious things Bb they never tempted you Dadd9 So as you stood in the ruins E7sus4 how could you bear to look on Bb C G as they burned for you? Dadd9 The broken pieces of clay E7sus4 and the palest eyes, painted in Bb Trojan blue Verse 2: Am Fmaj7/A You remember how it used to be G when you were just a girl Am Fmaj7/A Nothing really mattered then G you can remember so well Am Fmaj7/A How you used to hold your head so high G those days will never return ..(to chorus) Verse 3: Am Fmaj7/A Dust is drifting in the evening air G across the field below Am Fmaj7/A The silver mirror you hold will never tell... G you turn your face away ..(to chorus)
