This is my first tab, but I'm pretty sure that this is %100 correct. Email me
if you think there is something wrong with it at mackorone@gmail.com.
Enjoy.

Note: All F chords should be played as Fmaj7 in the song, unless otherwise 
noted. Just continue the last chord if there is no chord noted, until a 
chord change. Also all of the chord changes are correct in timing relative 
to the words. Lastly, just listen to the song for the strumming pattern.

CAPO 3

INTRO: C

C                    F  G    Am   G/B C                   
Born on the plains a farmers sons and brothers the same
F      G  Am G F Em    G         F      G
raised on promises we'd stay that way

   C                F  G    Am G/B  C  
As boys we believed summers at the sea we were free 
   F G    Am  G  F    Em  G       F      G
to become men of good will side by side

            F         Am  C            G/B  F
And we were children then footprints in the sand
                    Am       C          G/B  F
and where the ocean bends we made our promises

BREAK: C Am G

C               F   G   Am G/B C  
Duty soon calls nineteen forty-three we enrolled
  F G    Am G     F Em  G       F       G
together we would be our families pride

            F         Am       C        G/B  F
And we were soldiers then our bodies in the sand
                           Am        C          G/B  F
and like that sand through our hands go our grandest plans
                                    Am      G                F(not maj7)
and just to see you face for one moment I'd cross the ocean again
C   F   G  F  G Am F    G
the end is not the end

    F    C  G  Am   F       C   G Am  F
and I'll be by your side on the other side
         C  G  Am   F       C   G Am  F      G
and I'll be by your side on the other side

                F         Am       C           G/B  F
And through the cloud of death we find our way back home
                        Am  C          G/B  F
and though I hold your hand all must go alone
                                  Am       G                  F(not maj7)
and when you see the face of our maker you don't have to be ashamed
C   F     G  F    G   Am F      G
he knows the promises we made

    F    C  G  Am   F       C   G Am  F
and I'll be by your side on the other side
         C  G  Am   F       C   G Am  F
and I'll be by your side on the other side

The Em in the song could be played as an E, depending on your preference. Also, because the site gives you a really weird G/B chord, here is how you should play it : 0 0
1 or 1

Sorry about the previous post, the chords didn't line up. Just imagine that they do.
