Intro

Verse 1

Bb FThere was decorated general with a heart of gold
Cm GmThat likened him to all the stories he told
Eb BbOf past battles won and lost and legends of old
FA seasoned veteran in his own time
Bb FOn the battlefield he gained respect for fame
Cm GmWith many medals of bravery and stripes to his name
Eb BbHe grew a beard as soon as a he could to cover the scars on his face
FAnd always urged his men on
Bb FBut on the eve of great battle with the infantry in dream
Cm GmThe old general tossed in his sleep a lesson with its meaning
Eb BbHe awoke from the night to tell what he had seen
FAnd walked slowly out his tent
Bb FAll the men held tall with their chests in the air
Cm GmWith the courage in their blood and the fire in their stare
Eb BbAnd it was a grey morning and they all wondered how they would fare
FTill the old general told them to go home
He said... Pre-Chorus
Bb F Cm Gm EbI have seen the others and i have discovered
Bb FThat this fight is not worth fighting
Bb F Cm Gm EbAnd i've seen their mothers and i will no other
Bb FTo follow me where i'm going, so...
Chorus
Bb F CmTake a shower and shine your shoes
Gm EbYou got no time to lose
Bb FYou are young men you must be living x2
Bridge: Go now you are forgiven Verse 2 But the men stood fast with their guns on their shoulders Not knowing what to do with contradicting orders The general said he would do his own duty but extended it no further The men could go as they pleased But not a man moved their eyes gazed straight ahead Till one by one they stepped back and not a word was said The old general was left with his own words echoing in his head He then prepared to fight Pre-Chorus
