Open Letter Chords by Moddi

[Verse]
G       Em              D       G
What’s the point waiting for the doorman to drop the key?
G       Em              D       G
You’ll be gone long before this evil falls asleep.
G       Em              D       G
What’s the point waiting for a better day to come along?
G       Em              D       G
They will bow to their dogs before they see our reign come.

[Chorus]

First the French decamped and left us with the garbage.

There is always someone here to take the throne.
G       D       G
Traitors, traitors, traitors.

[Verse]
G       Em              D       G
Did you believe that they would listen just because they said they would?
G       Em              D       G
How naïve! They’ve always been too righteous for their own good.
G       Em              D       G
For you know, power is addictive to the one it wields.
G       Em              D       G
They have sown with evil hands and harvest our tragedy.

Am                      G               D
They turned a blind eye to Algeria’s free men.
Am                      G               D
We could have it all but were enslaved again.
G                D         G 
Traitors, traitors, traitors.

[Verse]
G       Em              D       G
All the same we will never let them have their filthy ways.
G       Em              D       G
We remain! These are our mountains; this is our place.
G       Em              D       G
We will break through the door and have what’s ours all along.
G       Em              D       G
For without us Algeria is suffering on her own.

[Chorus]
G                       Csus2           G       
So come the rain, come the wind come the hunger.
G                       Csus2           G       
We won’t sit and wait for freedom any longer.

Then our flag was dyed with Islam and Arabic.
Am                      G               D
But our roots go deep and our will is strong.
Am                      G               D
We will cling onto the land where we belong.
G               D            G 
Traitors, traitors, traitors.
