    G               Em         Bb\C
You tell me there's an angel in your tree
 
Eb        G\D            A\C#  Dsus4
Did he say he'd come to call on me

For things are getting desperate in our home
 
          C#dim7        G\D         D         C G\B Am7
Living in the parish of the restless folks I know
 
 
G          F             C          G   G G A B  D E
Everybody now bring your family down to the riverside
 
F              C            G    G A B  D
Look to the east to see where the fat stock hide
 
  G\B             C             G      G A C  D
Behind four walls of stone the rich man sleeps
 
     G             C6\G          Bb\C
It's time we put the flame torch to their keep
 
Bb\C
 
 
Db          Ab
Burn down the mission

If we're gonna stay alive

Watch the black smoke fly to heaven
 
    Gb
See the red flame light the sky
 
 
Eb\Bb          Bb
Burn down the mission
 
    Ab
Burn it down to stay alive
 
     Eb\Bb        Bb
It's our only chance of living
 
         Ab            Db   Bb\C
Take all you need to live inside

        G          Em          Bb\C
Deep in the woods the squirrels are out today
 
Eb            G\D           A\C#  Dsus4
My wife cried when they came to take me away
 
G              Em7sus4             Bb\C
But what more could I do just to keep her warm
 
     C#dim7         G\D      D      C    G\B Am7 G
Than burn burn burn burn down the mission walls
