[Verse 1]
          C
He said, "Son,
                 Em
Have you seen the world?
                         Am
Well, what would you say
                   C
If I said you could?
                    Am                       
Just carry this gun. 
                          C
and you’ll even get paid."
                            G      Gadd11  G  Gadd11  
I said, "That sounds pretty good."                       

[Verse 2]
              C
Black leather boots
             Em
Spit-shined so bright
                     Am                  
They cut off my hair 
              C
but it looked alright
                       Am
We marched and we sang
                     C
We all became friends
                     G     Gadd11  G  Gadd11
As we learned how to fight

[Chorus]
          Em
A hero of war
                      Am
Yeah that’s what I’ll be
                C
And when I come home
                         G
They’ll be damn proud of me
                     Em 
I’ll carry this flag
                  Am
To the grave if I must
                             C
Because it’s the flag that I love
                G
And a flag that I trust
 
[Verse 3] 
                     C
I kicked in the door
                    Em 
I yelled my commands
                   Am
The children, they cried
           C
But I got my man
                 Am
We took him away
                   C
A bag over his face
                        G        Gadd11  G   Gadd11
From his family and his friends
 
[Verse 4] 
                          C
They took off his clothes
                   Em 
They pissed in his hands
               Am
I told them to stop
              C
But then I joined in
                      Am 
We beat him with guns
                    C
And batons not just once
              G 
But again and again 
 
[Chorus] 
          Em 
A hero of war
                      Am
Yeah that’s what I’ll be
                C
And when I come home
                         G
They’ll be damn proud of me
                     Em
I’ll carry this flag
                  Am
To the grave if I must
                             C
Because it’s the flag that I love
                G   
And a flag that I trust

[Verse 5]
    C                          
She walked 
                    Em
through bullets and haze
               Am
I asked her to stop
                C
I begged her to stay
                  Am
But she pressed on
               C
So I lifted my gun
             G    Gadd11  G  Gadd11
And I fired away

[Verse 6]
     C                          
The shells 
                    Em
jumped through the smoke
                  Am
And into the sand
                       C
That the blood now had soaked
          Am                           
She collapsed 
                   C
with a flag in her hand
                 G     Gadd11  G  Gadd11
A flag white as snow

[Chorus]
          Em   
A hero of war
                  Am
Is that what they see
                      C
Just medals and scars
                 G
So damn proud of me
                         Em
And I brought home that flag
               Am
Now it gathers dust
                       C
But it’s a flag that I love
                   G
It’s the only flag I trust

[Outro]
          C                           Em
He said, "Son, have you seen the world? 
                    Am                       C
Well what would you say, if I said that you could?"
