Billy Bragg - Like Soldiers Do chords

      
LIKE SOLDIERS DO by Billy Bragg - Tabbed by Tcoldsteel 2009

CAPO (probably) 2nd or 3rd Fret.
Pick-up in bridge position (as usual). This tab may be better as an acoustic version anyway.
This is the VERY BASIC chord structure. All chords relative to CAPO.
Use a mixture of barred and open chords (The 'F' sounds better barred to me) and 
signature runs/licks between chords to get Billy's sound.

INTRO: C

VERSE:

C F CBlues eyes fighting the grey eyes fighting the tears
C FArmed to the teeth for a war of words
GReaching all the years
Am GI advanced across a poppy field
C FI saw the gleam as you raised your shield
FAnd love screamed down
G C (G)With the sun behind its back
CHORUS:
C FOur Fathers were all soldiers,
C GShall we be soldiers too
Am G (F G) CFighting and falling like soldiers do
Nothing is clear in this tactical unclear war I can't be bothered to find out What we are fighting for No one can win this war of the senses I see no reason to drop my defences So stand fast my emotions, Rally round my shaking heart Our Fathers were all soldiers, Shall we be soldiers too Fighting and falling like soldiers do Blue eyes fighting the grey eyes fighting the tears Armed to the teeth for a war of words Reaching all the years I advanced across a poppy field I saw the gleam as you raised your shield And love screamed down With the sun behind its back I knew once again I was under attack So stand fast my emotions, Rally round my shaking heart Our Fathers were all soldiers, Shall we be soldiers too
Am G (F G)Fighting and falling like soldiers
Am G (F G)Fighting and falling like soldiers
Am G (F G) CFighting and falling like soldiers do
