                              He said...
Verse 1:
    E                          G#m                        A
..."Son, have you seen the world? Well, what would you say
                        E                     A
If I said that you could? Just carry this gun,
                E                                    B
You'll even get paid." I said "That sounds pretty good."
              E                      G#m
Black leather boots, spit-shined, so bright
                A                   E
They cut off my hair, but it looked alright
                      A                    E
We marched and we sang, we all became friends
                     B
As we learned how to fight

Chorus 1:
           C#m                        A
A hero of war, yeah, that's what I'll be
                E                             B
And when I come home, they'll be damn proud of me
                 C#m                      A
I'll carry this flag, to the  grave, if I must
                          E                      B
'Cause it's a flag that I love and a flag that I trust

Verse 2:
                E                       G#m
I kicked in the door, I yelled my commands
                        A                  E
The children, they cried, but I got my man
                A                   E
We took him away, a bag over his face
                           B
From his family and his friends
                         E
They took off his clothes
                       G#m                   A
They pissed in his hands. I told them to stop
                     E                     A
But then, I joined in. We beat him with guns
                      E                     B
And batons, not just once, but again and again

Chorus 2:
           C#m                         A
A hero of war, yeah, that's what I'll be
                  E                             B
And when I come home, they'll be damn proud of me
                C#m                      A
I'll carry this flag, to the  grave, if I must
                          E                     B
'Cause it's a flag that I love and a flag that I trust

Interlude:
Same as intro

Verse 3:
       E                          G#m                  A
She walked through bullets and haze, I asked her to stop
                  E                    A                 E
I begged her to stay, but she pressed on, so I lifted my gun
            B
And I fired away
        E                          G#m
And the shells, jumped through the smoke
                 A                          E
And into the sand, that the blood had now soaked
        A                         E
She collapsed, with a flag in her hand
                B
A flag white as snow

Chorus 3:
          C#m                        A
A hero of war, is that what they see?
                   E                        B
Just medals and scars, so damn proud of me
                          C#m                      A
And I brought home that flag, now it gathers dust
                          E                       B
But it's a flag that I love, it's the only flag I trust
Outro:
         E                      G#m
He said "Son, have you seen the world?
                     A                      E
Well, what would you say if I said that you could?"
