Am9 F10 C11 1The king’s taken back the throne.
Am12 F13 C14 2The useless seed is sown.
Am15 F16 Em17 3When they say they’re cutting off the phone,
G18 C19 - -F-C20 - 4I tell 'em you're not home
Am21 F22 C23 6No place to hide,
Am24 F25 C26 7You're fightin' as a soldier on their side
Am27 F28 Em29 8You’re still a soldier in your mind
G30 C31 - -F-C32 - 9Though nothing's on the line
Am33 F34 C35 11You say it’s money that we need,
Am36 F37 C38 12As if we’re the only mouths to feed.
Am39 F40 Em41 13And no no matter what you say,
G42 C43 - -F-C44 - 14There’s some debts you'll never pay.
Am45 E46 F47 C48 16Working for the church while your family dies
Am49 E50 17You take what they give you
F51 C52 18And you keep it inside.
Am53 E54 F55 C56 19Every spark of friendship and love
G57 20will die without a home
C58 F59 Em60 G61 C62 21Hear the soldier groan, "We'll go at it alone".
Am63 F64 C65 23I can taste the fear.
Am66 F67 C68 24Lift me up and take me out of here.
Am69 F70 Em71 25Don’t wanna fight, don’t wanna die
G72 C73 - -F-C74 - 26Just wanna hear you cry.
Am75 F76 C77 28Who’s gonna throw the very first stone?
Am78 F79 C80 29Oh! who’s gonna reset the bone?
Am81 F82 Em83 30Walking with your head in a sling
G84 C85 - -F-C86 - 31Wanna hear the soldier sing:
Am87 E88 F89 C90 33"Been working for the church while my family dies.
Am91 E92 F93 C94 34Your little baby sister’s gonna lose her mind.
Am95 E96 F97 C98 35Every spark of friendship and love
G99 36will die without a home."
C100 F101 Em102 G103 C104 37Hear the soldier groan, "We'll go at it alone."
Em105 C106 G107 39I can taste your fear.
Em108 C109 G110 40It’s gonna lift you up and take you out of here.
Em111 C112 G113 41And the bone shall never heal;
D114 G115 42I care not if you kneel.
Em116 C117 G118 44We can’t find you now,
Em119 C120 G121 45But they’re gonna get their money back somehow.
Em122 C123 G124 46And when you finally disappear,
D125 G126 47We'll just say you were never here.
Em127 B128 49Working for the church while
C129 G130 50your life falls apart.
Em131 B132 C133 G134 51Singin' hallelujah with the fear in your heart.
Em135 B136 C137 G138 52Every spark of friendship and love
D139 53will die without a home."
G140 C141 Bm142 D143 G144 54Hear the soldier groan, "We'll go at it alone."
G145 C146 Bm147 D148 G149 55Hear the soldier groan, "We'll go at it alone."
