This is taken, from chords by Derwood and adding all of the lyrics. Feel free to post under your own name.
I can't believe that this isn't tabbed anywhere yet. It's only the best song on
the album! Sometimes, you just have to do things yourself.
This is in standard tuning. I've written it out in standard chords, though I know that
Neil uses alternate chord forms. Either way, it sounds fine this way.
Back in the days of Shock and Awe
We came to liberate them all
History was a cruel judge of overconfidence
Back in the days of "mission accomplished"
Our chief was landing on the deck
The sun was setting on a golden photo op
Thousands of bodies in the ground
Brought home in boxes to a trumpet's sound
No one sees them coming home that way
Thousands buried in the ground
Same as Intro:
Thousands of children scarred for life
Millions of tears for a soldier's wife
Both sides are losing now
Heaven takes them in
We had a chance to change our mind
But somehow wisdom was hard to find
We went with what we knew and now we can't go back
But we had a chance to change our mind.
