Danny Carnahan and Robin Petrie - Spoils of War

[Verse 1]
Dm                     C      Dm 
It’s all agreed, let’s have a war
             G                      Dm
It’s been so dull, let’s make some speeches
               Dm     C       Dm 
Let’s get the voters off our backs
               G                   Dm
They’d rather watch us storm some beaches
           C                Dm
And so we lose some of the boys
             C                A
At least we let ‘em die like men
           Dm        C         Dm     
Take out a villain, make some noise
             G            Dm
And they’ll elect us all again

[Verse 2]
Dm                  C     Dm
We’ve got a leader with a plan
               G                    Dm
The suffering one, he swears he’ll aid him
             Dm       C     Dm
If he can’t feed his fellow man
                G               Dm  
He’ll blow him to the God that made him
              C             Dm
Get all the homeboys seein’ red
             C           A
A chance to even up the score
            Dm      C        Dm  
Come home a hero, come home dead
              G            Dm
They’ll be no poorer than before

[Verse 3]
                 Dm        C     Dm 
There’s lots of boys will go to fight
             G             Dm    
For what we say has been denied them
              Dm      C       Dm 
Just keep it simple, keep it light
                G           Dm      
There’s plenty more to die beside them
              C                Dm
How fie and fair they’ll run to die
               C                     A
To earn their share of the spoils of war
               Dm        C       Dm
While rich and poor,the mothers cry
         G           Dm 
Forever poorer than before

[Verse 4]    
           Dm      C    Dm
And who is beaten and undone
               G                  Dm
And who earns fame and who earns glory
             Dm       C      Dm
The last one left to hold a gun
                G                  Dm
There’s no one there to check his story
              C                 Dm
The winner’s free to shout and brag
            C                A   
And gather up the spoils of war
               Dm      C      Dm 
And drape his brother with a flag
               G            Dm
And come home poorer than before

[Verse 5]
          Dm      C     Dm
So on we run and on we roll
                G                 Dm
We’ll make the foe drop down and kneel
               Dm        C       Dm 
We’ll learn no lessons from the past
              G            Dm     
We’ll go and reinvent the wheel
           C                Dm
And so we lose some of the boys
             C                A
At least we let ‘em die like men
             Dm      C         Dm
Take out a villain, make some noise
              G            Dm
And they’ll elect us all again
