Em And his subjects gathered 'round him D Like the leaves around a tree Am7 In their clothes of many colours Am7* For the angry gods to see. Em And the women all were beautiful D And the men stood straight and strong Am7 They offered life in sacrifice Am7* So that others could go on. Hate was just a legend And war was never known The people worked together And they lifted many stones They carried them to the flatlands And they died along the way But they built up with their bare hands What we still can't do today. And I know she's living there And she loves me to this day I still can't remember when Or how I lost my way. He came dancing across the water Cortez, Cortez What a killer.
