                     TOO LONG A SOLDIER - Pat Benatar
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Transcribed by: Anne Drury

Date: October 1, 2005

Written by: N.Geraldo, M.Grombacher
CD: "Wide Awake In Dreamland"       (1988, Chrysalis Records)


INTRO:

E  F#m   (2x)     E  F#m  E     E  F#m

E  F#m  E         E  F#m  E     E  C#m


1ST VERSE:

             C#m
We were the children of '45
 C#m
Loaded like pistols and taught how to die
    B                 A                                C#m
We looked the enemy straight in the eye (And never surrendered)
          C#m
Through trenches dug in the back of my mind
  C#m
I go over the top time after time
B                   A                                C#m
Me and the ones we left behind (Faces I'll always remember)


CHORUS:

            E
Now there's no fight left within me
         D      F#m      C#m
But the writing of this wrong
    C#m                           B             A
As nations we're divided, but as people we are one
      A                     E                B
Like brothers in blood, it seems that we've been
            C#m
Too long a soldier


E    B    C#m


2ND VERSE:

        C#m
In the city of monuments
           C#m
Among the flags of all governments
     B                  A                          C#m
The order of battle is written in the shadows of a hard black line
       C#m
Where people cry for a nation's scars
     C#m
And heroes sleep beneath a blanket of stars
 B                     A                         C#m
Too young to die, but never too old to play the General's game


CHORUS:

            E
Now there's no life left within them
         D      F#m     C#m
But the memory lingers on
    C#m                           B             A
As nations we're divided, but as people we are one
     A                    E               B
For brothers in blood we sing that we've been
            C#m
Too long a soldier


BRIDGE:

A    E

B                   E
Eternal flames blow in the wind, 
 E             A      B
I've been too long a soldier
 B                         E 
Captain of the Guard, I'm coming in
 E             A      B
Too long, too long a soldier
     F#m                 A
I've seen so much worth dying for
    F#m          A         C#m
So little worth killing over


B    C#m
        Hey

BREAK:


C#m    E    B    C#m       (play progression 2x)
F#m    A    A    B



BRIDGE:

B                   E
Eternal flames blow in the wind, 
 E             A      B
I've been too long a soldier
 B                         E
Captain of the Guard, I'm coming in
 E             A      B
Too long, too long a soldier
     F#m                 A
I've seen so much worth dying for
    F#m          A
So little worth killing over


B            E
Soldiers gone before me
E       A            B
I will surely fade away
    B                                 E
My eyes have seen the glory, and the suffering and the pain
 E             A      B
I've been too long a soldier
 E             A      B
Too long, too long a soldier
 E             A      B
I've been too long a soldier


C#m    E


 B              C#m
(Too long a soldier)
 C#m     E
Eternal flames blow in the wind
 B              C#m
(Too long a soldier)
   C#m                 E
My eyes have seen the glory of
 B              C#m
(Too long a soldier)
    C#m          E          B            C#m
Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light
 C#m   E    B     B  C#m
Oooh, ooh, ooh
 C#m   E    B     B  C#m
Oooh, ooh, ooh...


B

C#m    E    B      B  C#m       (fade on this progression)
