[Verse 1]

          Em
He said, “Son,
                 B
Have you see the world?
                     A
Well, what would you say
                    Em
If I said that you could?
                A
Just carry this gun 
                     Em
and you’ll even get paid.”
                            B
I said, “That sounds pretty good.”

              Em
Black leather boots
               B
Spit-shined so bright
                A
They cut off my hair 
              Em
but it looked alright
                  A
We marched and we sang
              Em
We all became friends
                     B
As we learned how to fight


[Hook]

          F#m
A hero of war
                     A
Yeah that’s what I’ll be
                Em
And when I come home
                         B
They’ll be damn proud of me
                F#m
I’ll carry this flag
                  A
To the grave if I must
                        Em
Because it’s flag that I love
                  B
And a flag that I trust


[Verse 2]

                Em
I kicked in the door
             B
I yelled my commands
                   A
The children, they cried
              Em
But I got my man
            A
We took him away
                Em
A bag over his face
                       B
From his family and his friends

                  Em
They took off his clothes
                 B
They pissed in his hands
                A
I told them to stop
               Em
But then I joined in
                 A
We beat him with guns
                   Em
And batons not just once
               B
But again and again


[Hook]

          F#m
A hero of war
                      A
Yeah that’s what I’ll be
                  Em
And when I come home
                        B
They’ll be damn proud of me
                F#m
I’ll carry this flag
                  A
To the grave if I must
                          Em
Because it’s flag that I love
                   B
And a flag that I trust


[Verse 3]

        Em
She walked 
                    B
through bullets and haze
                A
I asked her to stop
                Em
I begged her to stay
                A
But she pressed on
                Em
So I lifted my gun
             B
And I fired away

        Em
The shells 
                    B
jumped through the smoke
             A
And into the sand
                        Em
That the blood now had soaked
        A
She collapsed 
                   Em
with a flag in her hand
                B
A flag white as snow


[Chorus]

          F#m
A hero of war
                 A
Is that what the see
                E
Just medals and scars
                B
So damn proud of me
                        F#m
And I brought home that flag
                A
Now it gathers dust
                        E
But it’s a flag that I love
                        B
It’s the only flag I trust


[Refrain]

          Em
He said, “Son, 
                   B
have you seen the world? 
                    A
Well what would you say, 
                   Em
if I said that you could?”

Hey! First of all i wanna say that the song is great!
I fell in love with it since i first time heard it.
And i didnt expect the chords would appear here so fast.

But... I'm not sure... anyway 223332 is not the B-chord. ))
I guess there was supposed to be x23332. With this it sounds pretty good.

And Em has definetly to be replaced with E. Mabe not everywhere, but that's all i can say so far.
Nevertheless thanks to the tabber )
