A# F8 3There was decorated general with a heart of gold
Cm Gm9 4That likened him to all the stories he told
D# A#10 5Of past battles won and lost and legends of old
F11 A12 seasoned veteran in his own time A# F13 6On the battlefield he gained respect for fame
Cm Gm14 7With many medals of bravery and stripes to his name
D# A#15 8He grew a beard as soon as a he could to cover the scars on his face
F16 9And always urged his men on
A# F17 10But on the eve of great battle with the infantry in dream
Cm Gm18 11The old general tossed in his sleep a lesson with its meaning
D# A#19 12He awoke from the night to tell what he had seen
F20 13And walked slowly out his tent
A# F21 14All the men held tall with their chests in the air
Cm Gm22 15With the courage in their blood and the fire in their stare
D# A#23 16And it was a grey morning and they all wondered how they would fare
F24 17Till the old general told them to go home

35Verse 2 - same pattern as first Verse -
36But the men stood fast with their guns on their shoulders
37Not knowing what to do with contradicting orders
38The general said he would do his own duty but extended it no further
39The men could go as they pleased
40But not a man moved their eyes gazed straight ahead
41Till one by one they stepped back and not a word was said
42The old general was left with his own words echoing in his head
43He then prepared to fight

45Pre-Chorus:
A#43 F44 Cm45 Gm46 D#47 46I have seen the others and i have discovered
