The Resistance          Jim Mohr

           D/E                                                C/E
In the midst of the resistance stands a man strong and tall
              G                                    D/E
Has his head held high, but his back is against the wall
                              D/E                               C/E
He wasn't always angry until the day he saw
          G                                      D/E
In the midst of the resistance, no one cares at all


           D                                                   C
So he makes his stand before us and holds his weapon high
                                                  D
With a fervent fight for freedom in his battle cry
            D                                          C
But his weapon's not a rifle, it's a beat up old guitar
              G                                             D
And his war is not a world away, it's right in his back yard


(chorus)
D                                                   C
He's singin' out for hunger, he's singin' out for pain
         G                                                 D
He's singin' for the homeless in the shelter down on Main
      D                               C
An anyone who listens, and then lends a hand
     G                                                                D
Deserve a place beside him, they're instrumental in his band


D/E                                                          C/E
And when he's gray and older and he starts to show his age
               G                                                        D
Another rebel will replace him and take his turn upon the stage
         D                                                C
He'll make his stand before us and hold his weapon high
    G                                          D
A fervent fight for freedom is in his battle cry
             D                                         C
But his weapon's not a rifle; it's a beat up old guitar
              G                                             D
And his war is not a world away, it's right in his back yard
