                              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:
A hero of war! Yeah, that's what I'll be.
And when I come home, they'll be damn proud of me.
I'll carry this flag, to the  grave, if I must.
'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.

Same as intro

Verse 3:
She...
   E                          G#m                 A
...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:
A hero of war, is that what they see
Just medals and scars, so damn proud of me
And I brought home that flag, now it gathers dust
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?
