                             Post War Blues - Dan Mangan
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
Standard tuning, Capo on 5th fret if using Dan's chord construction. 

Most chords are finger picked with thumb striking root note on 1st and 3rd beat 
and fingers strumming higher notes on 2nd and 4th beats. 
Listen to the song for a better feel, this video has him playing acoustically:

Chords with an * are strummed rather than finger picked.

This is how Dan plays the chords, standard construction works just as well:
D  10 9  12 11 x  x
A  6  7  11 9  x  x
Bm 7  9  9  7  7  7 
G  x  10 12 12 12 

DLet's start a war for the kids
AA purpose for which to unite
DMake them some words they can mince
G* D AWhat they don't know, They won't mind
DFind them a foe for the fight
AAnd stories to tell as they age
DThen maybe time will decide
G* D AWhich ones keep and which ones fade
Chorus:
Bm * DThere's the deepest sleep in my life,
Bm* Dfrom which I am slowly coming to
A* Bm*And every morning I wait for the news
A*oh this is, this is post war blues
guitar solo Make me a means to an end Oh make me an ending in sight Make me insightful again What I can't see, I can't fight Make me a fire to burn burn all the letters I wrote write me a list of concerns If we are at peace If we are at ease I want to know Chorus: There's the deepest sleep in my life from which I am slowly coming to And every morning I wait for the news Oh this is, this is post war blues Oh this is, this is post war blues
