Em7  D  Cadd9  G  D  G

    Em7            D
The family's been here for
    Cadd9        G
The last hundred years
         G        D         G
And it's all that he's ever known
Em7          D
Life in the cotton fields
Cadd9          G
Swamps and the rolling hills
G             D        G
Always called Arkansas home
But when the war came like his father before
C             G
He joined the army
C               G
And went to the war
Em7          D
Leaving the rolling hills
Cadd9          G
Swamps and the cotton fields
G           D        G
Bound for a Normandy shore

Em7  D  Cadd9  G  D  G

[Verse 2]
Em7               D
The patch that he wore on
Cadd9      G
His uniform
    G    D        G
Was both blue and grey
    Em7       D
The colors of men who died
Cadd9      G      
Fighting another fight
    G    D           G
And more would die today
At Omaha beach against Germany
  Cadd9         G
A young country boy
          C          G
Struggled out of the sea
Em7       D
Up on the sand where
Cadd9  G
Many a man
      G     D          G
Would never know victory

Em7  D  Cadd9  G  D  G

[Verse 3]
Em7          D
Fought the entire time
Cadd9     G    
Up on the front line
       G       D          G
It was lonely, bloody and cold
Em7        D
The only relief he'd find
C             G
Might be some old French wine
    G             D         G
The water was all dirty and froze
But he was luckier than some, a better soldier than most
   Cadd9              G
He came back from Europe
    C         G
But never got home
Em7           D
Now he's back on the farm
Cadd9   G
But not out of harm
   G            D             G
He drank so the pain wouldn't show

Em7  D  Cadd9  G  D  G

[Verse 4]
Em7            D
Well he left behind
Cadd9         G
My brothers and I
   G            D           G
We never really knew him at all
  Em7      D 
I barely remember him
Cadd9   G
Smoking with a grin
G           D              G
But looking mean; standing tall
Well I can only hope that he wouldn't be ashamed
C            G
Of the man I become
        C           G
And the life that I made
    Em7        D
And he did the hardest part
    C               G
And lived life with all his heart
      G       D             G
And I hope I don't let him down

Em7  D  Cadd9  G  D  G
