Am Em G He marches through the barricades and fights across the line

DHe’s not allowed to dream of where he could be
~
C AmCause she’s at home and crying for him
Em DWhile he’s out there and they’re dyin’ for him
C AmOne wrong move is all it takes to
Em DTake a life away
~
CHe’ll keep marching,
Am EmHe’ll keep fighting till the sun appears again
CHe’ll never stop but
Am EmIt’ll be worth it in the
C Am Em When he comes home to see his family happy, laughing and alive
CHe wouldn’t change a thing cause
Am EmHe helped them survive
CIn the dark
AmIn the light
EmIn the war that he just came from
C Right to the end
AmHe will fight
EmUntil everything is done
C AmHe’ll keep marching in the sand
EmTo the sound of the old drum band
C Am EmThat is waiting for him to come home

C AmThough he’s not home to see his family happy
EmLaughing and alive
C He wouldn't change a thing
Am EmCause he helped them survive
CIn the dark
AmIn the light
EmIn the war that he had fought in
CUntil the end
AmHe shined so bright
EmAnd now everything is done
C AmNow he's lying in the sand
EmAnd the beat of the old drum band
C Am EmPlays out melodies of those that want him home
