WAR!:Edwin Starr. #1 in 1970. I got this off a live performance video and this is the way it sounds to me. (Capo up 2nd fret) CHORUS: Em A Em D Em War...huh..yeah! What is it good for? A Em Absolutely nothing..Unnnh! Em A Em D Em War! hunnnh! yeah! What is it good for? A Em Absolutely nothing..Say it again, y'all. Em A Em D Em War! Huh, Good God, Y'all! What is it good for? A Em Absolutely nothing..Listen to me.. #1. Em War! I despise! Because it means destruction Dm Em of innocent lives. Em Dm Em War! Means tears to thousands of mother's eyes, Dm Em when their sons go to fight and lose their lives. CHORUS: #2.***(Chords are the same for the other verses.)*** Em War! It ain't nothing but a heartbreaker. War! friend only to the undertaker. Ooooh, War! is an enemy to all mankind. The thought of war blows my mind. War! has caused unrest within the younger generation. Induction then destruction..who wants to die? Unnnnh! CHORUS: #3. Em War! it ain't nothing but a heartbreaker. War! it's got one friend..that's the undertaker. Ooooh, WAR! has shattered many a young man's dreams. Made him disabled, bitter and mean. Life is much to short and precious to spend fighting wars these days. War! can't give life..It can only take it away. CHORUS: #4. Em War! it ain't nothing but a heartbreaker. War! friend only to the undertaker. Peace, love and understanding..Tell me, is there no place for them today? They say we must fight to keep our freedom, But, Lord knows, there's got to be a better way. CHORUS:(x2) A seventies smash from Kraziekhat.
