Verse 1
D                            A                D
Jimmy joined the army 'cause he had no place to go
    D                                                     Em
Ain't nobody hiring round here since all the jobs went to Mexico
G                                                       A
Reckoned that he'd learn himself a trade maybe see the world
G                                    A
Move to the city some day and marry a black haired girl
G                       D
Somebody somewhere had another plan
G                  D
Now he's got a rifle in his hand
D                    A                         Bm    G
Rollin' into Bagdhad wondering how he got this far
D                   A                           D
Just another poor boy off to fight a rich man's war

 Verse 2
  D                      A                     D
Bobby had an eagle and a flag tattooed on his arm
    D                                               Em
Red white and blue to the bone when he landed in Kandahar
 G                                    A
Left behind a pretty young wife and a baby girl
G                                          A
A stack of overdue bills and went off to save the world
G                             D
Been a year now and he's still there
G                        D
Chasing ghosts in the thin dry air
D                          A                       Bm     G
Meanwhile back at home the finance company took his car
D                     A                          D
Just another poor boy off to fight a rich man's war

Bm            G
When will we ever learn
D             A
When will we ever see
Bm        G
Stand up and take our turn
D                             A
Keep telling ourselves we're free

Verse 3
D                   A                D
Ali was the second son of a second son
D                                                  Em
Grew up in Gaza throwing bottles and rocks when the tanks would come
G                                                         A
Ain't nothing else to do around here just a game children play
G                                                     A
Something about living in fear all your life makes you hard that way
G                    D
He answered when he got the call
G                               D
Wrapped himself in death and he praised Allah
D                      A                     Bm    G
A fat man in a new Mercedes drove him to the door
D                     A                         D
Just another poor boy off to fight a rich man's war
