Intro With A

Bm GA daughter born the day they walked the Moon
D ASomewhere on the Edge of the Age of Aquarius
Bm G D AIn the year her mother - would have otherwise - forgotten
Bm GJuly Was very hot in North Carolina
D ASo she left For Buffalo on a bus in the rain
Bm GWith the steam off the asphalt still wet in her hair
D A Bm G D AAnd the pain of her soldier gone ... just sailed away
Bm GBefore he'as a soldier, He was just his Mother's boy
D AAnd that's exaclty How She planned to keep him
Bm G D AHis Father died so long ago and he was all - she had
Bm GStill she shared His Love With a very young wife
D A Bm G D AAnd before the War ... things weren't so bad
CHORUS:
Bm G But every Generation makes the same mistakes
D A Still we send our sons away to do the same
Bm G The mothers cry and the daughters die inside
D A Bm G D-A Bm G D-A And the sons like the fathers - march
Bm GWhose hair was longer? I think his, she might say
D ABut in the Army they cut it all away
Bm G D AToo Much Room For Wild Thoughts to grow
Bm GAnd in the spring of his child's first year
D AThe father, hey the son, the husband
Bm GUnder beautiful sky, youth like fire in His eyes
D AHe gave His Life For Nothin'
Bm G D ANo, nothin' at all, they say
Bm GSo Many Years and the pain it still remains
D AAnd now her daughter's man will sail away
Bm GPolitics and promises forever the Same
D A Bm G D AWe take away and sacrifice ... What we cannot replace
FINAL CHORUS:
Bm G But every Generation makes the same mistakes
D A Still we send our sons away to do the same
Bm G The mothers cry and the daughters die inside
D A Bm A And the sons like the fathers - now the sons and the daugters -
Bm G D-A Bm G D-A March
Bm G D ABuffalo in the winter, bitter as it is, is home
Bm G D A - Bm G D A D/FFor three generations of widowed brides
