Intro -- Am, Em, G, D x2 
 
~

Am                          Em                                G
      He marches through the barricades and fights across the line

                         D
He’s seen some things he never thought he’d see

Am                            Em                  G
    He’s working through each order one step at a time

                    D
He’s not allowed to dream of where he could be

~

      C                 Am
Cause she’s at home and crying for him

      Em                         D
While he’s out there and they’re dyin’ for him

C                 Am
One wrong move is all it takes to 

Em          D
Take a life away

~
           C
He’ll keep marching,

           Am                Em
He’ll keep fighting till the sun appears again

            C
He’ll never stop but

         Am              Em
It’ll be worth it in the 

              C               Am            Em        
When he comes home to see his family happy, laughing and alive

            C
He wouldn’t change a thing cause

Am                Em
He helped them survive

       C
In the dark

       Am
In the light

       Em
In the war that he just came from

              C 
Right to the end

        Am
He will fight

      Em
Until everything is done

           C               Am
He’ll keep marching in the sand

       Em
To the sound of the old drum band

        C           Am          Em
That is waiting for him to come home

~
 
Am                     Em                              G
      A maiden met her perfect man amongst the summer grass

              D
A memory that haunts inside her mind

Am                     Em                                  G
    He’s trying to get home but knows the others would not last

              D
Just a little longer will be fine

~

      C                 Am
Cause she’s at home and crying for him

      Em                         D
While he’s out there and they’re dyin’ for him

C                 Am
One wrong move is all it takes to 

Em          D
Take a life away

~
           C
He’ll keep marching,

           Am                Em
He’ll keep fighting till the sun appears again

            C
He’ll never stop but

         Am              Em
It’ll be worth it in the 

              C               Am            Em        
When he comes home to see his family happy, laughing and alive

            C
He wouldn’t change a thing cause

Am                Em
He helped them survive

       C
In the dark

       Am
In the light

       Em
In the war that he just came from

              C 
Right to the end

        Am
He will fight

      Em
Until everything is done

           C               Am
He’ll keep marching in the sand

       Em
To the sound of the old drum band

        C           Am          Em
That is waiting for him to come home

~
 
Am                          Em                                  G
       She's sitting in the kitchen when she hears the doorbell ring.

                     D
She sees two men she hoped she’s never see.

Am                      Em                           G
      She has to take a seat when they tell her everything

                      D
She’s breaking as she thinks: what could have been

~

      C                 Am
Now she’s at home and crying for him

Em             D
No one else is dyin’ for him

C                  Am
One wrong move was all it took to 

Em          D
Take his life away

~

             C
He's stopped marching 

             Am
He’s stopped fighting 

        Em
And the sun appeared again 

          C               Am              Em
He had to stop but it was worth it in the end

                C               Am
Though he’s not home to see his family happy

Em
Laughing and alive 

            C 
He wouldn't change a thing 

      Am              Em
Cause he helped them survive

       C
In the dark

       Am
In the light

       Em
In the war that he had fought in 

          C
Until the end 

             Am
He shined so bright 

        Em
And now everything is done 
 
         C            Am
Now he's lying in the sand

        Em
And the beat of the old drum band

          C           Am                  Em
Plays out melodies of those that want him home

~

         C            Am
Now he's lying in the sand

        Em
And the beat of the old drum band

          C           Am                  Em
Plays out melodies of those that want him home
