Let Your Hearts Be Troubled

Words And Music By William Mcallvaney & Ricky Ross

Transcribed By Ian Peters

This is essentially a Ricky Ross keyboard/vocal song with an orchestral arrangement. The keyboards are unmistakenly Ricky Ross and not James Prime. As this is not a guitar-song some experimentation will be required to get the right feel, such as plucking broken chords as though playing the piano.



Eb Bb

Let your hearts be troubled


Sleep not too soft

Eb Bb (single strike before next line)

No your griefs have friends

Eb Bb

Be still let go your anger

Ab Eb

The day will soon be here again

Eb Ab Db

Tomorrow may take longer


Once upon a time a palace there was

Ab Db

And it was in winter

Ab Db

Oh the dark was bitter

Ab Db

Men came that day to see a prince


To ask him for some sunlight


Well the prince called his choice soldiers out

Ab Db

Can’t you hear the guns

Ab Db

See men falling low

Ab Db

Their eyes like tunnels where they fell

Ab Bb

Through those tunnels we must go

(chorus repeat)

(then chords as verse, at least they seem to work as this part is orchestrated)

Three men, Gordon, Budowski and Pitoku

Wanted to meet but what could they do

For Japan, Jamaica and Poland you see

Are far, far apart way over the sea

So here’s what they did, they got themselves dead

One by gun, one by rope, one by losing his head

And that’s how they met

But wasn’t that silly

We learn from this that freedom is folly

(chorus repeat and orchestrated play-out)

Well that’s it, easy enough to play really. If you feel up to it, try a blues-based lead break in Eb (11th fret-ish) to fill in at the end
