Dm C I am just an aging drummer-boy, and in the wars I used to play Bb Dm And I've called a tune to many a torture session. Dm C Now they say I am a war criminal, and I'm a-fading away. Bb Father, please hear my confession. G D I have legalized robbery and called it belief G D I have run with the money, I have hid like a thief G D I have rewritten history with my armies and my crooks D C Am D Invented memories, I did burn all the books Dm C Em And I can still hear his laughter, and I can still hear his song Emsus2 Em D C D C The man's too big, the man's too strong C Cm G Gm etc. For chords, play the Dm, D, C, Em, Am and G as open. Play the Bb in 1st position. I play the Emsus2, Gm and Cm as:
