                              He said...

Verse 1.

    F                      Am
..."Son, have you seen the world?
                     Bb
Well, what would you say
                   F
If I said that you could?
                Bb
Just carry this gun,
                F
You'll even get paid.".
                           C
I said "That sounds pretty good."


Verse 2.

              F
Black leather boots,
                Am
Spit-shined, so bright.
                Bb
They cut off my hair,
               F
But it looks alright.
                  Bb
We marched and we sang.
              F
We all became friends,
                     C
As we learned how to fight.


Chorus 1.

          Dm
A hero of war!
                       Bb
Yeah, that's what I'll be.
                F
And when I come home,
                         C
They'll be damn proud of me.
                Dm
I'll carry this flag;
                    Bb
To the  grave, if I must.
                          F
'Cause it's a flag that I love
                   C
And I flag that  I trust.


Verse 3.
                F
I kicked in the door,
            Am
I yelled my commands.
                   Bb
The children, they cried,
             F
But I got my man.
            Bb
We took him away,
               F
A bag over his face,
                        C
From his family and his friends.


Verse 4.

                  F
They took off his clothes,
                   Am
They pissed in his hands.
               Bb
I told them to stop,
                   F
But then, I joined in.
                 Bb
We beat him with guns
                     F
And batons, not just once,
               C
But again and again.


Chorus 1.

          Dm
A hero of war!
                       Bb
Yeah, that's what I'll be.
                F
And when I come home,
                         C
They'll be damn proud of me.
                Dm
I'll carry this flag;
                    Bb
To the  grave, if I must.
                          F
'Cause it's a flag that I love
                   C
And I flag that  I trust.

                                  She...

Verse 5.

   F                          Am
...walked through bullets and haze.
               Bb
I asked her to stop;
                F
I begged her to stay.
                Bb
But she pressed on,
               F
So I lifted my gun
            C
And I fired away...


Verse 6.

        F
And the shells
                   Am
Jumped through the smoke.
             Bb
And into the sand,
                       F
That the blood had now soaked,
        Bb
She collapsed,
                   F
With a flag in her hand.
                C
A flag white as snow.


Chorus 2.

          Dm
A hero of war!
                  Bb
Is that what they see?
               F
All medals and scars?
                 C
So damn proud of me.
                        Dm
And I brought that flag home.
               Bb
Now it gathers dust.
                       F
But it's a flag that I love.
                     C
It's the only flag I trust.


Outro.

         F                      Am
He said "Son, have you seen the world?
                     Bb
Well, what would you say
                   F
If I said that you could?
