The Side of a Hill

       Em        D          G           D
On the side of a hill, in a land called somewhere
             G     A7           D
A little boy lies asleep in the earth
      Bm          A        G         D     F#m
While down in the valley a cruel war rages
    G         D          G       A       Bm    D G D Em
And people forget what a child's life is worth

On the side of a hill, a little cloud weeps
And waters the grave with its silent tears
While a soldier cleans a polishes a gun
     Em      D           G      A     Bm    G D Em
That ended a life at the age of seven years

And the war rages on in a land called somewhere
And generals order their men to kill
And to fight for a cause they've long ago forgotten
        Em           D            G    A13  D    G D G D A7 D
While a little cloud weeps on the side of a hill
