                     No Forgotten Man

From the woods of California to the banks of Ohio

             C                                   G
I've always worked each day God sent as best I'm able

While both me and the crops they failed, those damn wolves came to my door

        C                             G
I just couldn't put no food upon the table

D                               C
Time to step up, boy, and be a man.

So they stuck you 'neath a helmet and put a shovel in your hand

             C                                G                              
Sayin' it's time to step up, boy, your family needs ya'

And though we struggled hard to save, they say our money turned no good

         C                                G
And that there's not gonna' be enough to feed ya'

D                              C
And they say it never happened 'cause they can.

         C                             G
So they rob us of our livin', kick us down with shiny shoes

     C                         G
God knows we've paid for our dreamin'

      C                                         G               Em
And now they're trying to tell us that they'll own us 'till the end

  D                                   C
Someone better pray that luck means justice

                      G          G////  G////  G////
'Cause I'll be no forgotten man.

So they stuck me 'neath a helmet, put a gun into my hand

       C                                   G
Saying time to step up, boy, your country needs ya'.

They rounded us like slaughter, they shipped us all to hell

       C                                    G
Sayin' what doesn't kill you boy is gonna' free ya'.

  D                              C ////   C////    C////
Pretend it didn't happen if you can.

      C                             G
But I did my share of killin' and I took my share of war

  C                      G
God knows I bled for my leader

    C                               G           Em
And now you're trying to tell me my enemy's my friend

       D                                C
They'll only pray as long as there is freedom

But I'll be no forgotten man.


These days I wheel the city, where the streets don't know my name

         C                                      G
They'll say time to move on boy 'cause no one needs you.

In the shot glass there's no mercy, in your bottle only blame

            C                                   G
Though you shout the deeds you done no one believes ya'

  D                               C////    C////
Come, man, spare a nickel if you can

       C                          G
Cause all I've got's a story, no kin to call my own

       C                       G
No photographs to pin upon a feelin'

     C                                        G               Em
But what you're trying to tell me makes the truth too hard to bend

      D                                   C
And maybe there's just too much made of freedom

Then I'll be no forgotten man.

       D                                    C
'Cause one man's chains become another's freedom

So I'll be no forgotten man.

       D                                    C
'Cause one man's chains becomes another's freedom

                   G           G////   G////   G////
So you'll be no forgotten man.
