Verse:
A                               (D)*              A
Said goodbye to his momma as he left south dakota
G                              D
to fight fot the red white and blue

A                              (D)*     A
He was nineteen in green with a new M-16
G                         D
Just doing what he had to do

A                                     (D)*                 A
He was dropped in the jungle where the choppers would rumble
G                               D
With the smell of napalm in the air

A
And the seargent said
G           D
Look up ahead

A                           (D)*              A
Like a dark evil cloud twelve hundred came down
G                      D
On him and twenty-nine more

A                               (D)*            A
They fought for their lives but most of them died
G            D
In the 173rd airborne

Chorus:
A                            (D)*           A
On the 8th of November the angels were crying
G                            D
As they carried his brothers away

A                                  (D)*        A
With the fire raining down and the hell all around
G                                     D
There were few men left standing that day

F                          G
Saw an eagle fly through a clear blue sky
F              G
Nineteen-sixty-five
 NC            A    (D)* A    G      D
the 8th of November

A                             (D)*          A
Now he's fifty-eight and his pony tail's gray
G                                 D
But the battle still plays in his head

A                               (D)*             A
He limps when he walks but he's strong when he talks
G                                    D
About the shrapnell they left in his leg

A                           (D)*      A
He puts on a suit over his airborne tatoo
G                        D
He ties it on one time a year

A                             (D)*            A
He remembers the fallen as he orders a tall one
G                             D
And swallows it down with his tears

Chorus:
A                            (D)*           A
On the 8th of November the angels were crying
G                            D
As they carried his brothers away

A                                  (D)*        A
With the fire raining down and the hell all around
G                                     D
There were few men left standing that day

F                          G
Saw an eagle fly through a clear blue sky
F              G

Just doing what he had to do

* You don't need to play this D, but Big Kenny plays it live. I think it sounds good, 
it makes it so you are not holding A out so long. Its a good song, don't be afraid to let 
ring for a little, i.e. only strum F once until the G on "saw the eagle fly", it sounds best. ENJOY!
