The Dragon


CAPO I

 Am Am G Am   C G Em

 Am Am G Am   C G Am


Verse 1:

 Am                G  Am

 A vile, enormous dragon
       C         G         Em
 with heads and horns and crowns
 Am                         G          Am
 And a tail that swept the stars from heaven
       C      G         Am
 And cruelly cast them down
 Am                   G  Am   C       G       Em
 He lurked before the woman about to bear her Son
 Am                      G   Am   C      G      Am
 The One who'll rule the nations with a rod of iron

Chorus:

 Am                  G  Am
 Now has come our salvation
      C             G         Em
 The power and the kingdom of God
 Am                   G  Am
 For the dragon is defeated
        C             G            Am   
 By the Word and the blood of the Lamb

 Am Am G Am   C G Em

 Am Am G Am   C G Am


Verse 2:

 Am               G   Am
 Behold, a war in heaven
     C      G       Em
 reflected here on earth
 Am                  G  Am
 And Michael and his angels
 C           G         Am             
 fought for all their worth
 Am                  G   Am       C         G      Em
 That wicked ancient serpent who leads the world astray
 Am          G        Am          C       G       Am
 The accuser of the brethren was beaten from the fray

Chorus:

 Am                  G  Am
 Now has come our salvation
      C             G         Em
 The power and the kingdom of God
 Am                   G  Am
 For the dragon is defeated
         C             G            Em   
 By the Word and the blood of the Lamb
        Am             G           Am     Am   G Am  
 By the Word and the blood of the Lamb


Verse 3:

 Am                  G    Am
 Rejoice then, oh ye heavens
      C          G            Em
 But woe to the earth and the sea
 Am                G           Am
 For he is filled, filled with fury
     C         G       Em  
 He knows his time is brief
            Am        G        Am
 'cause he knows his time is brief 


Chorus:

 Am                  G  Am
 Now has come our salvation
      C             G         Em (stop)
 The power and the kingdom of God
 Am                   G  Am
 For the dragon is defeated
         C             G            Em   
 By the Word and the blood of the Lamb
        Am             G           Am     Am   G Am  
 By the Word and the blood of the Lamb
