We Will Not Go Down

Intro:

Am x4

Am                          C
A blinding flash of white light
G               Am
Lit up the sky over Gaza tonight
Am                  C
People running for cover
G                     Am
Not knowing whether they’re dead or alive

Dm                                        Am
They came with their tanks and their planes
Dm                       Am
With ravaging fiery flames
Dm                 F
And nothing remains
C                       G
Just a voice rising up in the smoky haze

F       C
We will not go down
Am               G
In the night, without a fight
F                            C
You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools
Am                 G
But our spirit will never die
Am      G
We will not go down
Am
In Gaza tonight

Am                 C
Women and children alike
G                   Am
Murdered and massacred night after night
Am                               C
While the so-called leaders of countries afar
G                       Am
Debated on who’s wrong or right

Dm                                   Am
But their powerless words were in vain
Dm                                   Am
And the bombs fell down like acid rain
G                               Am
But through the tears and the blood and the pain
C                                  Em
You can still hear that voice through the smoky haze

F       C
We will not go down
Am               G
In the night, without a fight
F                            C
You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools
Am                 G
But our spirit will never die
Am      G
We will not go down
Am
In Gaza tonight

F       C
We will not go down
Am               G
In the night, without a fight
F                            C
You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools
Am                 G
But our spirit will never die
F       C
We will not go down
Am               G
In the night, without a fight
Am      G
We will not go down
Am
In Gaza tonight
