Intro: G, Em, C, D

Eight years ago on a summers night
On the streets of L.A. was our first fight
C                                  D
Turned out to be the first of many more
The country was all in up rise
Who the blame and who to fight
       C             D
Who to kill and bomb
To settle the score
[ Tab from: ]
You said "My love, at times like these
You don't dare question the president,"
C                                        D
And I raised my voice to the girl I most adore
I said "I know it's hard for you to see
      Em                                            C
But I will not blindly follow one who blindly leads
   D               G
No matter what the cause."

Three thousand dead in NYC
               Em                          C
And now three thousand more across the sea
No-one can tell me what for
And I'm not one to say I told you so
But time has passed, and now we know
     C            D               G
That honey, I was right about the war

Em (let ring)
Rich man's chess game is called "a war"
C (let ring)                                D (let ring)
And the pawns they use are named "the poor"
And no-one ever wins
And I say for shame on anyone
Who orders young men to shoot a gun
          C                                   D
For these gods you all kill and die so easily for

My dear, the end is coming soon
Not for the Earth, but for me and you
    C           D                   G
And every other soul who shares the world
       C                D                G
Kill a million men, but ideas will still endure
C                D                  G
People were not meant to shoot for sport
C (let ring)      D (let ring)    G (let ring)
God dammit, I was right about the war
