D  Cadd9          G    
Oh Mother are you sleepin'?
D         Cadd9          G
  Did you pray for me tonight?
          D    Cadd9            G
Cause I'm alone    here on this front line
          D    Cadd9             G
Hoping I might     get back home alive.
 D       Cadd9        G
   I see the bullets flyin',
 D       Cadd9         G
   And I feel the bombs explode.
           D   Cadd9             G
I close my eyes     and pull this trigger
                 D   Cadd9            G
And kill these people    I don't even know.

Chorus playing this:

        D         Cadd9         G
         And Mother, please forgive me
                 D         Cadd9             G
       For these things that I have seen and done.
              D      Cadd9             G
       I hope I can still get home to heaven.
                      D     Cadd9                    G
       I wish I had a bible     Instead of this damn gun.

Got 60 pounds upon my back.
Machine gun in my hand.
All day long clearin burned out shacks.
All these things I know I'll never understand.

And Mother, please forgive me
For these things that I have seen and done.
I hope I can still get home to heaven.
I wish I had a bible
Instead of this damn gun.
Oh, I wish I had a bible
Instead of this damn gun.

Oh, I wish that I could tell you
I was safe away from harm,
But everytime I close my eyes
Mama, I wish you could hold me in your arms.

And Mother, please forgive me
For these things that I have seen and done.
I hope I can still get home to heaven.
I wish I had a bible
Instead of this damn gun.

And Mother, please forgive me
For these things that I have seen and done.
I hope I can still get home to heaven.
I wish I had a bible
Instead of this damn gun.

Oh, I wish I had a bible
Instead of this damn gun.
