     Bb       F             Bb
Some mother's son lies in a field
D7                               Gm  F  Eb  Eb/D
Someone has killed some mother's son today
Cm               F              Bb
Head blown up by some soldier's gun
D             A                 D7
While all the mothers stand and wait
F#            F#7              Bm   A G
Some mother's son ain't coming home today
Bb           C                D
Some mothers son ain't got no grave

Bb           F             Bb
Two soldiers fighting in a trench
D7                        Gm  F   Eb  Eb/D
One soldier glances up to see the sun
Cm            F                    Bb F   Eb
And dreams of games he played when he was young
D              A                  D7
And then his friend calls out his name
F#            F#7            Bm    A   G
It stops his dream and as he turns his head
  Bb     C           D
A second later he is dead           (2 bars of D)

Bb            F             Bb
Some mother's son lies in a field
D7                             Gm F Eb   Eb/D
Back home they put his picture in a frame
Cm           F                 Bb   F   Eb
But all dead soldiers look the same
D             A                  D7
While all the parents stand and wait
F#            F#7             Bm   A    G
To meet their children coming home from school
Bb            C            D
Some mother's son is lying dead

    G                D
Somewhere someone is crying
           A               D
Someone is trying to be so brave
    Bb                      F
But still the world keeps turning
                C                 F     F7
Though all the children have gone away


Bb            F             Bb
Some mother's son lies in a field
D7                             Gm F Eb   Eb/D 
But in his mother's eyes he looks the same
Cm           F                 Bb   F   Eb 
As on the day he went away
D             A                  D7
They put his picture on the wall
F#            F#7             Bm   A    G
They put flowers in the picture frame
Bb            C            D 
Some mothers memory remains
