Cause For Alarm The Heavy
Reggae Style (off beat strumming) – For an easy version try capo 3 and transpose this page down 3 semitones.
Cm You must listen to this story Pay attention to this tale For you to bathe in glory G Cm You must be doomed to fail Fm Let you in on no secret Give yourself no head start Cm Taking in the breath is easy G Cm Making is the hardest part
Chorus: G# G This is a cause for alarm Cm Get on your knees and pray G# G Don’t be a knight in armour Cm Without a beast to slay
Verse 2: Cm There is no dress rehearsal There’s no easy lesson learned Better to be breathing fire G Cm Than to have your bridges burned Fm Let it be your only duty Dedicate it to your own Cm If you gonna fight like lion Someone ought get murdered off
[Interlude] Fm Cm Fm Cm G
Cm Fire fall upon us And lighting shall strike the Earth For you to reach salvation G Cm You must value what it’s worth Fm When there are great expectation There is no one else to blame Cm You can either shoot for freedom G Cm Or you drag a ball and chain
