A Principled Man.
By Steve Taylor. copyright 1989 Myrrh records.
Transposed by Craig Barnes.


E           A     E                 A
Under a flag, they swore a bond, 
E                  A          E     A
caught under fire they ran.
E                A      E                  A
Are you the one, standing your ground?
E              A              E        A
Are you a principled man?
E             A       E           A
Followers fall, blinded by kings, 
E             A            E       A
lost in the lie of the land.
E                A      E               A
Are you the one, sworn to be true?
E             A            E        A
Are you a principled man?


B                E               
Now begin, come along side it,
B                     E
seize the wind, come along ride it.
C                    G                        
One day it will be you believing 
        A  B   D          B
there is a principled man.
B                         E        
Who goes there? do you belong lad?
B                     E 
You know there is a new dawn.
       C                        G
and one day he'll say "Stick with me baby,
  A   B    D          B
I am a principled man."


E               A       E                A
Many's the man, grounded by greed,
E              A              E         A
leaning on power and land.
E                    A   E              A
Show me the one lost in the stars,
E                  A             E       A
show me the principled man.



Bridge: B, C#, D, E, G#, A, B, C, C#


B               E     B                    E       
Now begin........seize the wind..........
B                        E
Who goes there, do you belong lad?
B                     E
You know there is a new dawn.
        C                      G                
And one day he'll say "Stick with me baby, 
  A   B  D            B
I am a principled man......"


E                  A           E                  A
Bleeding and hushed, hung between theives, 
E                     A         E       A
there the foundation began.
E                 A    E               A
Are you the one taking your cross?
E              A             E          A
Are you a principled man?


(Repeat all verses and go to bridge.)
