Chords
Transpose:
(No capo)
 
C G There was a decorated general with a heart of gold
Am Em That likened him to all the stories he told
F C Of past battles, won and lost and legends of old
G A seasoned veteran in his own time
C G On the battlefield, he gained respectable fame
Am Em With many medals of bravery and stripes to his name
F He grew a beard as soon as he could
C GTo cover the scars on his face and always urged his men on
C GBut on the eve of a great battle with the infantry in dream
Am EmThe old general tossed in his sleep and wrestled with its meaning
F C He awoke from the night to tell what he had seen
GAnd walked slowly out of his tent
(So basically all i wanted to do was make a novice version of this song as it has many difficult Chords and tabs originally, And the whole song has the progression C,G,Am,Em,F,C,G. Sorry if its not accurate enough for you I just wanted to make something easier for beginners.) All the men held tall with their chests in the air With courage in their blood and a fire in their stare It was a gray morning and they all wondered how they would fare The old general told them to go home He said, "I have seen the others and I have discovered That this fight is not worth fighting Oh and I've seen their mothers And I will no other to follow me where I'm going" So take a shower and shine your shoes you got no time to lose You are young men you must be living, yeah Take a shower and shine your shoes you got no time to lose You are young men you must be living, go now you are forgiven Yeah and the men stood fast with their guns on their shoulders Not knowing what to do with the contradicting orders The general said, he would do his own duty but he would Extend 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 And the old general was left with his Own words echoing in his head, he then prepared to fight He said, "I have seen the others and I have discovered That this fight is not worth fighting Oh and I've seen their mothers And I will no other to follow me where I'm going" So take a shower and shine your shoes you got no time to lose You are young men you must be living, yeah Take a shower and shine your shoes you got no time to lose You are young men you must be living, go now you are forgiven
