B                       F#
 When you take me up to Rose Hill

 When you lay my body low

 Wrap me in a flag, throw some flowers on the ground,
B                            F#
 Say a few words then let me go


B                            F#
There's no need to defend my honor

 Or justify the life I gave

 He worked too hard for way too many years
B                             F#
 To lose his boy in a foreign sand


B                F#
 No doubt, he is angry
B                             F#
 No doubt where he'll put the blame
           B
 But don't let him fall apart, Mama,
               F#
 Don't let him go back to the pills

 Only pride will ease his pain

 I died a patriot, a soldier just like him
G#m                             F#
 Fought like he taught me to, until the very end
