Capo 3

D G Em7 *(Asus4)A7
This is where the helicopters came to take me away
D G Em7 A7
This is where the children used to play
D G Em7 A7
This is only half a mile away from the attack
D G Em7 A7
This is where my life changed in a day; and then it changed back
D D/C# Bmb6 G/F# G Em7
Buried in the din of rotor noise and close explosions
D D/C# Bmb6 G/F# G A7
I do my best to synthesize the sounds and my emotions

D G Em7 A7
This is where the allies bombed the school, they say by mistake
D G Em7 A7
Here nobody takes me for a fool, just for a fake
D D/C# Bmb6 G/F# G Em7
Later at the hotel bar, the journalists are waiting
D D/C# Bmb6 G/F# G A7
I hurry back to my guitar while they're commiserating

D G Em7 A7
And I'll be leaving soon
D G Em7 A7
I'll be leaving soon

D G Em7 A7
Just as soon as we were on the ground, we were back in the jet
D G Em7 A7
Just another three-day foreign tour we'd never forget
D D/C# Bmb6 G/F# G Em7
It's hard to sympathize with all this devastation
D D/C# Bmb6 G/F# G A7
Hopping 'round from site to site like tourists on vacation

D G Em7 A7
And I'll be leaving soon
D G Em7 A7
I'll be leaving soon

D D/C# D/C Bm A7
I can't help anyone, 'cause everyone's so cold
D D/C# D/C Gm6/Bb Bm
Everyone's so skeptical of everything they're told
Cadd9 G/B Gm6/Bb A7
And even I get sick of needing to be sold

D G Em7 A7
Though it's only half a month away, the media's gone
D G Em7 A7
An entertaining scandal broke today, but I can't move on
D D/C# D/C Bmb6 G/F# G Em7
I'm haunted by a story and I do my best to tell it

D D/C# D/C Bmb6 G/F# G Em7
Can't even give this stuff away, why would I sell it?
D D/C# D/C Bmb6 G/F# G Em7
Everybody's laughing while at me they point a finger
D D/C# D/C Bmb6 G/F# G Em7
A world that loves its irony must hate the protest singer

D G Em7 A7
So I'll be leaving soon
D G Em7 A7
I'll be leaving soon
D G Em7 A7
I'll be leaving soon
D G Em7 A7
I'll be leaving soon
