MICKEY

G C GMake a picture with Mickey before he is gone
G C GYouíll find him dressed up in pajamas out on his front lawn
C GHe stormed the beaches of Normandy and watched all his buddies die
F C GHeíll tell you stories without flinching, and a wink from his steel blue eyes
It was easy to be honest back in í41 Evil simple to find and so was your gun Declaring victory was the furthest thing from steel blue Mickeyís mind With all that ocean below him he prayed up to the deep blue sky
G C GAs he fired into the air
G C GA bullet falling into the sea
G C GYouíre thinking he donít care
F C GHeís falling down on his knees
Coming home after so long it ainít ever the same See a daughter donít even know her own daddyís name Ainít it funny a war so big can touch a babe so small Just like it blurs a thousand fatherís faces into nothing at all As they fire into the air A bullet falling into the sea Youíre thinking he donít care Heís falling down on his knees Mickey fathered a daughter who mothered a son Signed up and went over to get this old war won He left Mickey on the corner drinking his nickel beers He up and got shot within his first year Leaving Mickeyís steel blue eyes filled with funeral tears As they fire into the air A bullet falling into the sea Youíre thinking he donít care Heís falling down on his knees
