Here is "Rumours of War" by Billy Bragg off "Don't Try This at Home".

Rumours of War (Billy Bragg)
          Am                       C  G    Am    
There are soldiers marching on the common today
           C    F          C
They were there again this evening
     Am                         G
They paced up and down like sea birds on the ground
Am          G             Am
Before the storm clouds gathering
       Am                           C      G   Am    
I must buy whatever tinned food is left on the shelves
         C           F        C
They are testing the air raid sirens
        Am                            G
They've filled up the blood banks and emptied the beds
       Am       G       Am
At the hospital and the asylum
        Am                         C      G  Am    
I saw a man build a shelter in his garden today
       C           F    C
And we stood there idly chatting
         Am              G
He said: "No, no I don't think war will come"
    Am       G          Am
Yet still he carried on digging
Am               C         G Am    
Everything in my life that I love
         C     F            C
Could be swept away without warning
        Am                       G
Yet the birds still sing and the church bells ring
        Am       G       Am
And the sun came up this morning
Am                 G
Life goes on as it did before
       Am      G                Am
As the country drifts slowly to war
