intro:   D5   C   Bb   D   D5   C   Bb   

         D5
         I'm just and ageing drummer boy
                    C
         And in the wars I used to play
                  Bb
         And I've called the tune
                           D5
         To many a torture session
                  D
         Now they say I am a war criminal
                 C
         And I'm fading away
         Bb                      D5
         Father please her my confession 
verse 1:                
                G
         I have legalised robbery
         D
         Called it belief
                G
         I have run with the money
             D
         And hid like a theif
         G       
         re-written history 
                 D5
         With my armies and my crooks
                   C       Am
         Invented memories
                D5
         I did burn all the books
                   Dm
         And I can still hear his laughter
                   C                   Em
         And I can still hear his song
 
         The man's too big
                       D        C   D   C   Cm   G   Gm   D
         The man's too strong
verse 2: 
         Well I have tried to be meek 
         And I have tried to be mild 
         But I spat like a woman 
         And sulked like a child 
         I have lived behind wall 
         That have made me alone 
         Striven for peace 
         Which I never have known 
         And I can still hear his laughter 
         And I can still hear his song 
         The man's too big 
         The man's too strong 
verse 3:
         Well the sun rose on the courtyard 
         And they all did hear him say 
         'You always were a Judas 
         But I got you anyway 
         You may have got your silver 
         But I swear upon my life 
         Your sister gave me diamonds 
         And I gave them to your wife 
         Oh father please help me 
         For I have done wrong 
         The man's too big 
         The man's too strong
