Another Man's Cause

By the Levellers - From the album "Levelling the Land"

This is a great song. Simple to play (like most of the Leveller's stuff),
but is enhanced by adding rythmic hammer-ons and pull-offs in the latter
stages. Listen to the song and get into it...


Am G F G

Am G F G

Verse 1
    Gunshots shatter in the peace of night
    It's just another firefight
            F                     G
    For the people of this little town
    But for the dying soldier
    Well he's feeling ten years older
            F                      G
    As he's lying face down on the ground
    All the words that are in his head 
    And all the words that his mother said
       F                             G
    As she would put him to bed back home

    C                  G           Am
    Your Daddy when he died in the Falklands
    C        G    Am
    Fighting for another man's cause
             C              G             Am
    And your brother he was killed in the last war
             C                  G          Am
    And your mother, well she's lying home alone

Verse Two
[ Tab from: https://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/l/levellers/another_mans_cause_crd_ver_2.html ]
    G F G
    Am G F G

    Everyday she sees your face 
    On the picture on the fireplace
              F                         G
    With your brother as he was leaving school
    Then a day came five years ago
    You said "Mother, I need to know"
            F                                    G
    And you spoke the words your brother spoke before
    "I know the things my Daddy done
    And I've seen the medals that he's won
          F                               G      G   Am
    And I know this is what he would have wanted for me

    G Am


    F       G             Am  G
    Now she wonders at it all
    F             G              Am                G
    Just in whose name, do these brave young heros fall
        F        G              Am          G
    And how many more are gonna answer that call
                  F         G       Am               G
    They're gonna fight and die in another country's war
                  F           G               Am          G
    They're gonna die for a religion didn't believe in at all
                  F        G                 Am            
    They're gonna die in a place they should never been at all
    Oh, never been at all
