Saw myself a goin', down to war in June.

Intro Riff

Verse 2:
Got myself arrested, Wound me up in jail.
Richmond 'bout to blow up, Communication failed.
If you see the answer, now's the time to say.
All I want, All I want is to get you down to pray.


*Guitar Solo*
Use Verse Chords


Saw the people standin' thousand years in chains.
Somebody said it's diff'rent now, look, it's just the same.
Pharaohs spin the message, round and round the truth.
They could have saved a million people, How can I tell you?


There Are a couple of weird rhythms in the song, just listen to it a couple of times and 
play around with your strumming patter and you'll get it.
