I hope you can understand what I have typed here. I put only words
to last chorus 'cause chords are not needed there. Listening the song
once makes a lot of easier to understand this.

Few of the sins of the father       Are visited upon the son

D      A/E                                                       E
Hearts   have been hard       Hands have been clenched into fists too long

E   B                                    D
Our sons need never be soldiers   Our daugters will never need guns

D    A                                                          E
These are the years between   These are the years that were hard fought an won

Who can remember  We've got to remeber


Chorus:

The hardest years, the darkest years...
Forsaking aching breaking years.
The Time and tested heartbreak years.
These should not be forgotten years.

The blinded years, the binded years.
The desperate and divided years.
These should not be forgotten years
Remember
