Song: Rumours of War
Artist: Billy Bragg
Album: Don't Try This at Home
Transcribed by: Dean Malone

Here is "Rumours of War" by Billy Bragg off "Don't Try This at Home".
It is just the chords (Transcribing the violin parts would have taken me forever).
Try interchanging some Em's for G to give it an even sadder feel (If possible). ENJOY.

Rumours of War (Billy Bragg)
==============
          Am                       C  G    Am
There are soldiers marching on the common today
           C    F          C
They were there again this evening
     Am                         G
They paced up and down like sea birds on the ground
Am          G             Am
Before the storm clouds gathering
       Am                           C      G   Am
I must buy whatever tinned food is left on the shelves
         C           F        C
They are testing the air raid sirens
        Am                            G
They've filled up the blood banks and emptied the beds
       Am       G       Am
At the hospital and the asylum
        Am                         C      G  Am
I saw a man build a shelter in his garden today
       C           F    C
And we stood there idly chatting
         Am              G
He said: "No, no I don't think war will come"
    Am       G          Am
Yet still he carried on digging
Am               C         G Am
Everything in my life that I love
         C     F            C
Could be swept away without warning
        Am                       G
Yet the birds still sing and the church bells ring
        Am       G       Am
And the sun came up this morning
Am                 G
Life goes on as it did before
       Am      G                Am
As the country drifts slowly to war
