Song For The Dead  

Intro:  Em7  Em (2X)

Em7           Em    Gmaj7
Deep in the field a lone soldier stands
      Em7        Em      C
With mud on his boot and blood on his hands
     Em7          Em    Gmaj7
They left him behind to bury the dead
       C                                            D  Em
And to say a few words on behalf of the leadership

Em                   D
Pardon me, boys if I sleep off my pack
    Em        Em7        C
And sit for a while with you 

    G                   B7                           Em     Em7        
I'd like to explain why you fine young men had to be blown apart
To defend this mud hole
    G                             B7 
Now our country, boys though it's quite far away
             Em     Em7     C
Found itself jeopardized, endangered, boys
   G                    B7 
By these very gooks who lie here beside you
Em      Em7     C
Forever near, forever

We'd like to express our deep admiration
For your courage under fire and your willingness to die
For your country, boys we won't forget
We won't forget
