Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
By the Levellers - From the album "Levelling the Land"
------------------------------------------------------

This is a great song. Simple to play (like most of the Leveller's stuff),
but is enhanced by adding rythmic hammer-ons and pull-offs in the latter
stages. Listen to the song and get into it...

[Intro]
+++++

Am G F G

Am G F G

[Verse 1]
+++++++
    Am
    Gunshots shatter in the peace of night
         G
    It's just another firefight
            F                     G
    For the people of this little town
        Am
    But for the dying soldier
              G
    Well he's feeling ten years older
            F                      G
    As he's lying face down on the ground
    Am
    All the words that are in his head 
        G
    And all the words that his mother said
       F                             G
    As she would put him to bed back home

[Chorus]
++++++
    C                  G           Am
    Your Daddy when he died in the Falklands
    C        G    Am
    Fighting for another man's cause
             C              G             Am
    And your brother he was killed in the last war
             C                  G          Am
    And your mother, well she's lying home alone

Verse Two
+++++++++

    G F G
    
    Am G F G

    Am                    
    Everyday she sees your face 
           G
    On the picture on the fireplace
              F                         G
    With your brother as he was leaving school
           Am
    Then a day came five years ago
             G
    You said "Mother, I need to know"
            F                                    G
    And you spoke the words your brother spoke before
    Am
    "I know the things my Daddy done
             G
    And I've seen the medals that he's won
          F                               G      G   Am
    And I know this is what he would have wanted for me

    G Am

[Chorus]
    ++++++

[Bridge]
++++++
    F       G             Am  G
    Now she wonders at it all
    F             G              Am                G
    Just in whose name, do these brave young heros fall
        F        G              Am          G
    And how many more are gonna answer that call
                  F         G       Am               G
    They're gonna fight and die in another country's war
                  F           G               Am          G
    They're gonna die for a religion didn't believe in at all
                  F        G                 Am            
    They're gonna die in a place they should never been at all
        Am
    Oh, never been at all

[Chorus]
    ++++++

Lose yourself in the cresendo bit
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    C G Am Am (Repeat six times)

[Chorus]
    ++++++

B------5-5-----5-5-----5-3-5-3
G-2-2-----2-2-----2-2-----------5-4

Great tab!
It sounds great on the acoustic guitar, with nothing but a guitar and a singer. It's my favourite song to play, EVER! So simple, so beautiful.
