     A#    F    Cm     G
     Cm    D#   A#     F


A#				   F
There was decorated general with a heart of gold
Cm			Gm
That likened him to all the stories he told
  D#				A#
Of past battles won and lost and legends of old
F
A seasoned veteran in his own time
A#			     F
On the battlefield he gained respect for fame
Cm				Gm
With many medals of bravery and stripes to his name
  D#				   A#
He grew a beard as soon as a he could to cover the scars on his face
F
And always urged his men on
 A#				F
But on the eve of great battle with the infantry in dream
   Cm				    Gm
The old general tossed in his sleep a lesson with its meaning
 D#			  A#
He awoke from the night to tell what he had seen
F
And walked slowly out his tent
A#			     F
All the men held tall with their chests in the air
Cm				     Gm
With the courage in their blood and the fire in their stare
   D#				  A#
And it was a grey morning and they all wondered how they would fare
 F
Till the old general told them to go home

He said...

Pre-Chorus
 A#     F         Cm     Gm          D#
I have seen the others and i have discovered
            A#			F
That this fight is not worth fighting
 A#	F             Cm        Gm          D#

To follow me where i'm going, so...

Chorus
 A#     F             Cm
Take a shower and shine your shoes
 Gm               D#
You got no time to lose
          A#			     F
You are young men you must be living  x2

Bridge:
Go now you are forgiven

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

Pre-Chorus:
 A#     F         Cm     Gm          D#
I have seen the others and i have discovered
            A#			F
That this fight is not worth fighting
 A#	F             Cm        Gm          D#
And i've seen their mothers and i will no other
        A#             F
To follow me where i'm going, so...

Chorus:
 A#     F             Cm
Take a shower and shine your shoes
 Gm               D#

You are young men you must be living  x2
