         E
He said, "Son,
                 G#m
Have you see the world?
                    A
Well, what would you say
                   E
If I said that you could?
                A                       E
Just carry this gun and you’ll even get paid."
                            B (Fill1)
I said, "That sounds pretty good."


[Fill 1] (Second Guitar):

e|---------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------|
G|-8-11-11-11-11-9-9-9-9-8-8-8-8-9-9-8-9-|

A|---------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------|

              E
Black leather boots
               G#m
Spit-shined so bright
                A                  E
They cut off my hair but it looked alright
                  A
We marched and we sang
              E
We all became friends
                     B     Fill2
As we learned how to fight


[Fill 2] (Second Guitar):

e|----------------------|
B|----------------------|
G|-/4/6-6-6-8-8-9-9-8-9-|
D|----------------------|
A|-/2/4-4-4-6-6-7-7-7-9-|
E|----------------------|


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


During the chorus the second guitar picks the chords like this:

*=Let ring

e|---------------------------------------------------|
B|-------5-----------------5---------------2-1-4-4*--|
G|-----6---6-------------6---6-----------1-2-2-2-2*--| It's played 2 times
D|---6-------6---------7-------7-------2-------------|
A|-4-----------4-----7-----------7---2---------------|
E|---------------4 5---------------0-----------------|

                E
I kicked in the door
            G#m 
I yelled my commands
                   A
The children, they cried
             E
But I got my man
            A
We took him away
               E
A bag over his face
                        B       Fill3
From his family and his friends


[Fill 3](Second Guitar):

e|--------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------|
G|-8-8-8-8-8-9-9-8-11-9-9-8-8-9-9-|
D|-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9--9-9-9-9-9-9-|
A|--------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------|

                  E
They took off his clothes
                   G#m 
They pissed in his hands
               A
I told them to stop
                  E
But then I joined in
                 A 
We beat him with guns
                    E
And batons not just once
              B     Fill2
But again and again 


[Fill 2] (Second Guitar):

e|----------------------|
B|----------------------|
G|-/4/6-6-6-8-8-9-9-8-9-|
D|----------------------|
A|-/2/4-4-4-6-6-7-7-7-9-|
E|----------------------|


          C#m 
A hero of war
                      A
Yeah that’s what I’ll be
                E
And when I come home
                         B
They’ll be damn proud of me
                C#m 
I’ll carry this flag
                  A
To the grave if I must
                             E
Because it’s the flag that I love
                  B     Fill4
And a flag that I trust


[Fill 4] (Just play the Intro again):

*=let ring            B
                      
e|--------------------7-------------|
B|--------------------7---/9-7------|
G|-----9---9---9---9--8--------9-8--|
D|-------9---9---9----9-------------|
A|--0*----------------9-------------|
E|--------------------7-------------|

    E                          G#m 
She walked through bullets and haze
               A
I asked her to stop
                E
I begged her to stay
                A
But she pressed on
               E
So I lifted my gun
            B    Fill1 Fill5
And I fired away


[Fill 5] (Second Guitar):

e|-7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7---5---4---|

A|--------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------|

    E                         G#m 
The shells jumped through the smoke
             A
And into the sand
                       E
That the blood now had soaked
    A                            E
She collapsed with a flag in her hand
                B Fill1
A flag white as snow

          C#m   
A hero of war
                 A
Is that what the see
                E
Just medals and scars
                 B
So damn proud of me
                        C#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


The [Outro] is picked like this (The E-chord on the end is strummed):

e|--------------------------------------------------0-|
B|--------------------------------------------------0-|
G|-----4-------4-------4-------4-------4-------4----1-|
D|---6---6---6---6-------6---6---6-------7-------7--2-|
A|-7-------7---------6-----6---------7-------7------2-|
E|-----------------4---------------5-------5--------0-|

         E                       G#m
He said, "Son, have you seen the world? 
                    A                       E (Strum and let ring)
Well what would you say, if I said that you could?"
