[Intro]
|D |D |


[Verse 1]
DI was born to be of service
ACamp Lejeune just felt like home
EmI had honor, I found purpose
GSir, yes sir
GThat's what I know
D AThey sent us to a place I never heard of weeks before
EmWhen you're nineteen, it ain't hard to sleep
GIn the desert on God's floor
EmClose your eyes, stop counting sheep
GYou ain't in bootcamp anymore
[Instrumental] |D |G | [Verse 2]
DWe were taught to shoot our rifles
AMan and woman, side by side
EmThought we'd be met as liberators
GIn a thousand-year-old fight
DI got this painful ringing in my ear
AFrom an IED last night
Em GBut no lead-lined Humvee war machine, could save my sergeant's life
EmThree more soldiers, six civilians
GNeed these words to come out right
[Chorus]
D AGod of mercy, God of light
Em GSave your children from this life
D AHear these words, this humble plea
Em GFor I have seen the suffering
D AAnd with this prayer I'm hopin'
Em GThat we, can be unbroken
[Instrumental] |D |G | [Verse 3]
DIt's 18 months now, I've been stateside
AWith this medal on my chest
EmBut there are things I can't remember
GAnd there are things I won't forget
D AI lie awake at night with dreams the devil shouldn't see
EmI wanna scream, but I can't breathe
GAnd Christ, I am sweating through these sheets
EmWhere's my brothers? Where's my country?
GWhere's my how things used to be?
[Chorus]
D AGod of mercy, God of light
Em GSave your children from this life
D AHear these words, this humble plea
Em GFor I have seen the suffering
D AAnd with this prayer I'm hopin'
Em DThat we, can be unbroken
[Bridge]
BmMy service dog's done more for me
GThan the medication would
DThere ain't no angel that's coming to save me
ABut even if they could
[Verse 4]
DToday, 22 will die from suicide
AJust like yesterday, they're gone
EmI live my life for each tomorrow
GSo their memories will live on
DOnce we were boys, and we were strangers
ANow we're brothers and we're men
Em GSomeday you'll ask me, was it worth it to be of service in the end?
Em GWell, the blessing, and the curse is, yeah, I'd do it all again
[Outro] |D A |G |
D AWhoa-oh
GWhoa-oh
D AWhoa-oh
GWhoa-oh
D AWhoa-oh
GWhoa-oh (Whoa)
[Ending] |D |D |D |D |D |D |
