Song of the Khalsa in A
1. Many speak of courage, speaking cannot give it
F#m E D
it’s in the face of death we must live it.
When things are down and darkest,
that’s when we stand tallest
F#m E D
Until the last star falls, we won’t give
an inch at all
A E Bm A E
Stand as the Khalsa Strong as Steel
Steady as Stone
A E Bm
Give our lives to God and Guru
D F#m E A
mind and soul breath and bone
2. Guru Arjun gave his life, to stand for what was right
He was burned and tortured, five long days and nights
He could have stopped it anytime just by giving in
His strength a solid wall, he never gave an inch at all
Refrain 2: Sons of the Khalsa, remember those who died
Stood their ground until their last breath,
so we who live now might live free lives
3. A princess is not royal, by her birth or blood inside
but if her family’s home, is Anandpursahib
She’ll walk with such a grace and strength,
the world will bow in awe
Until the mountains fall, she’ll never give an inch at all
Refrain 3: Daughters of the Khalsa,
in your strength our future lies.
Give our children fearless minds,
to see the world, through the Guru’s eyes
4. Baisakhi day we were thousands,
but only five had the courage for dyin'.
then one brave man one flashing sword,
turned us all to lions.
And now we live his legacy, to die before we fall.
And like the five who answered his call,
we can’t turn back at all
5. The tenth Guru gave even his sons,
to give the Khalsa life.
His words stand like mountains,
against the winds of time,
"Khalsa will rule the world
all will be safe in it’s fold".
But if the Khalsa falls, there won’t be a world at all.
Repeat Verse 1: Many speak of courage ....
Repeat Refrain 2: “Sons of the Khalsa …
Repeat Refrain 3: “Daughters of the Khalsa…
Mind and soul are his alone
