Capo on 4
Tabbed by mgret_10

G
My grandpa fought in World War II

My uncle fought in ‘Nam
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 there’s 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 I’m older 
D                    G         C
And it’s 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 ‘em 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 don’t 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 we’re older 
D                   G      C
And it’s 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 friend’s overseas in the desert where it’s 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 he’s a solider
C                     G
Fighting in a foreign land
Am 
Now we’re older 
D                  G
God bring him home again
