Artist: Ennio Morricone
Song: The Story Of A Soldier (La Storia Di Un Soldato) 
Album: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly (Soundtrack) 
Tabbed by: Imre Lahdelma (lahdelmi@jippii.fi) 

This is a beautiful song by Ennio Morricone from the film "The Good, The Bad And The Ugly". 
I didn't find a tab for this song anywhere so I decided to do one. 
I have heard that on the Italian import soundtrack CD there is a six minute version of the song.
This version I tabbed is the shorter version. 

So, here are the chords:

A      (577655)
A7     (575685)
Bb7    (XXX131)
Bm     (799777)
Db     (X46664)
D      (XX0232)
D*     (X57775)
D**    (X54232)
Ddim7  (XX0101)
Dmaj7  (XX0222)
Dmaj7* (X57675)
Em     (X79987)
E7     (X79797)
G      (355433)
Gmaj7  (XX5777)

(Note that the chords reflect the overall tonality of the song. 
The chords can be arpeggiated freely and some of the notes in the chords
can be omitted. Listen to the song and you'll see what I'm talking about.)

 Intro: 

 D*   Bm   A   A7   A   D*

 D*     Em     E7       
 Oooh   Oooh   Oooh

 D*                      Bm         A
 Bugles are calling from prairie to shore,
 
 A7                      A            D*
 Sign up and fall in and march off to war.

 D              Dmaj7 D7   D     Gmaj7        D**
 Blue grass and cot - ton, burnt and forgotten
 
     Db         Dmaj7*  D*             A     D*
 All hope seems gone so soldiers march on to die.

 G      Dmaj7* Bb7    Dmaj7*

 Sign up and fall in and march off to war.

 Oooh  Oooh Oooh Oooh

 D*                      Bm         A
 There in the distance a flag I can see,

 A7                          A            D
 Scorched and in ribbons but whose can it be,

 Dmaj7           D7        Gmaj7       D**
 How ends the story, whose is the glory
 
     Db    Dmaj7*    D*           A         D*
 Ask if we dare, our comrades out there who sleep.

 G      D*     Ddim7  D*
 Oooh   Oooh   Oooh   Oooh

 G      D      Em     D*
 Oooh   Oooh   Oooh   Oooh

 G      D
 Oooh   Oooh
