Rise Against - Hero of War Chords                       Pete Bloxham 17/6/10


A lot of the chord tabs on here don't sound quite right when played with the song, 
and they're difficult to sing with. This sounds right when played with the song.

                              He said...

Verse 1.

    F                       Am
..."Son, have you seen the world?
                     Bb
Well, what would you say
                   F
If I said that you could?
                Bb
Just carry this gun,
                F
You'll even get paid.".
                           C
I said "That sounds pretty good."


Verse 2.

              F
Black leather boots,
                 Am
Spit-shined, so bright.
                Bb
They cut off my hair,
               F
But it looks alright.
                  Bb
We marched and we sang.
              F
We all became friends,
                     C
As we learned how to fight.


Chorus 1.

          Dm
A hero of war!
                       Bb
Yeah, that's what I'll be.
                F
And when I come home,
                         C
They'll be damn proud of me.
                Dm
I'll carry this flag;
                    Bb
To the  grave, if I must.
                          F
'Cause it's a flag that I love
                   C
And I flag that  I trust.


Verse 3.
                F
I kicked in the door,
             Am
I yelled my commands.
                   Bb
The children, they cried,
             F
But I got my man.
            Bb
We took him away,
               F
A bag over his face,
                        C
From his family and his friends.


Verse 4.

                  F
They took off his clothes,
                   Am
They pissed in his hands.
               Bb
I told them to stop,
                   F
But then, I joined in.
                 Bb
We beat him with guns
                     F
And batons, not just once,
               C
But again and again.


Chorus 1.

           Dm
A hero of war!
                       Bb
Yeah, that's what I'll be.
                F
And when I come home,
                         C
They'll be damn proud of me.
                 Dm
I'll carry this flag;
                    Bb
To the  grave, if I must.
                          F
'Cause it's a flag that I love
                   C
And I flag that  I trust.

                              She...


Verse 5.

   F                          Am
...walked through bullets and haze.
               Bb
I asked her to stop;
                F
I begged her to stay.
                Bb
But she pressed on,
               F
So I lifted my gun
            C
And I fired away...


Verse 6.

        F
And the shells
                   Am
Jumped through the smoke.
             Bb
And into the sand,
                       F
That the blood had now soaked,
        Bb
She collapsed,
                   F
With a flag in her hand.
                C
A flag white as snow.


Chorus 2.

          Dm
A hero of war!
                  Bb
Is that what they see?
               F
All medals and scars?
                 C
So damn proud of me.
                         Dm
And I brought that flag home.
               Bb
Now it gathers dust.
                       F
But it's a flag that I love.
                     C
It's the only flag I trust.


Outro.

         F                       Am
He said "Son, have you seen the world?
                     Bb
Well, what would you say
                   F
If I said that you could?
