C		  Csus2
Peter said to Paul
           C        Csus2     C    Csus2 C Csus2
“you know all those words we wrote
              C		  Csus2
Are just the rules of the game
         C             Csus2     C  Csus2 C Csus2
and the rules are the first to go"
        Am                       F                   C Csus2 C Csus2
But now talkin' to God is Laurel beggin' Hardy for a gun
        Am                     F                      C Csus2 C Csus2
I gotta girl in the war, man I wonder what it is we done

Paul said to Peter
"You gotta rock yourself a little harder;
Pretend the dove from above is a dragon and your feet are on fire"
And I got a girl in the war, Paul the only thing I know to do
Is turn up the music and pray that she makes it through

Because the keys to the kingdom got locked inside the kingdom
And the angels fly around in there, but we can't see them
And I gotta girl in the war, Paul I know that they can hear me yell
If they can't find a way to help, they can go to Hell
If they can't find a way to help her, they can go to Hell

INTERLUDE (I normal repeat the sequence of chords from the verses once)

Paul to Petey "you gotta rock yourself a little harder;
Pretend the dove from above is a dragon and your feet are on fire"
But I gotta girl in the war, Paul her eyes are like champagne
They sparkle, bubble over, in the morning all you got is rain
Sparkle, bubble over, in the morning all you got is rain
They sparkle, bubble over, in the morning all you got is rain

------------------------------------------------------------
I'm not sure how the part with Am and F at the end of each verse is actually played, but 
is just about how I play it

  Am                  F
