(capo 2nd)

C             Am      F       C
And did those feet in ancient time
F         C         Dm  Am    F
walk upon England's mountains green?
    C       Am   Em      Am
And was the Holy Lamb of God
   Em        Am       Em D     G  
on England's pleasant pastures seen?

    G       Dm    Gm    Dm
And did the countenance divine
              F      Bb      F
shine forth upon our clouded hills?
        Dm     G  G7      C
And was Jerusalem builded here
 Am   F     C    F C G   C
among these dark satanic mills.

 C           Am     F       C
Bring me my bow of burning gold!
      F     C      Dm Am F
Bring me my arrows of de-sire!
      C     Am       Em     Am
Bring me my spear! O Clouds unfold!
      Em    Am Em   D  G  
Bring me my chariot of fire!

  G        Dm         Gm     Dm
I will not cease from mental fight,
             F           Bb    F
nor shall my sword sleep in my hand,
             Dm    G7    C
'til we have built Jerusalem
   Am F      C     F   C   G    C
in England's green and pleasant land!
