This is a great song that explains current day issues. Capo on 4 Tabbed by mgret_10 G My grandpa fought in World War II My uncle fought in ĎNam Em My father was too young He went to school and met my mom C And her dad always told us stories around dinner time G D And thereís one he told when I was young that sticks out in my mind G He said ten years after daddy taught me bout the birds and bees Em I was stranded in Pearl Harbor fighting off the Japanese C When the kamikaze pilots came and dove in without warning G D I was on the Arizona on a warm December morning Chorus G I Remember C G When I was a younger man G We were soldiers C G Fighting in a foreign land Am Now Iím older D G C And itís happening again Verse 2 G It was hard to have forgiveness for the things they did that day Em And our President decided we should make their people pay C So we dropped on Nagasaki and we cut Ďem down to size G D And the one we dropped on Hiroshima left them vaporized G And I heard some Christian saying, what would Jesus do Em What if you were on the wrong side, would he point the gun at you C And they read through every word of Matthew, Mark and Luke and John G D So they could see if killing was the side that Christ was on Chorus G And they separate the church and state And keep God out of school Em So our governments can educate Based upon their rules C But people start to wonder if our politics make sense G D When religion is our best excuse for national defense G And when our citizens start saying that our wars are not ok Em And Washington keeps telling them God loves the USA C And they teach us history so we can learn from our mistakes G D And this generation wants to know how many years it takes C To change the way we treat our neighbors all across the land G D Cause if we donít change our hearts we repeat the past again G I Remember C G When I was a younger man G We were soldiers C G Fighting in a foreign land Am Now weíre older D G C And itís happening again Instrumental break G When my grandpa finished talking We went walking, he and I Em I was thinking of the future and how scared I was to die C Now my best friendís overseas in the desert where itís dry G D Fighting for our country and I need a reason why G I Remember C G When he was a younger man G Now heís a solider C G Fighting in a foreign land Am Now weíre older D G God bring him home again
