                 Children's Crusade   - STING
                ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~   From the album: The Dream
                                        of the Blue Turtles


 Hi! My second time posting a Sting song. If anyone wants me to try
 to figure out anymore from Sting just holler!


 Bm: 224432  G:320033  A: 002220
 E: 022100   C:x32010

 Intro: In Bm position pluck the three top strings.


 Verse 1:

    Bm         Bm        E             E
 Young men and soldiers, nineteen fourteen.

    Bm               Bm       E            E
 Marching through countries they'd  never seen

    Bm          Bm       E         E
 Virgins with rifles, a game of charades

     C        Bm           A
 All for a children's crusade


 Verse 2: Follow same format as verse 1

 Pawns in the game are not victims of chance
 Strewn on the fields of Belgium and France
 Poppies for young men, death's bitter trade
 All of those young lives betrayed


 Chorus:

    C             G             C         G
 The children of England would never be slaves

    C                  Bm                G
 They're trapped on the wire and dying in waves

     C          G       C            G
 The Flower of England face down in the mud

     C              Bm                       G
 And stained in the blood of a whole generation

 Verse 3: follow same format as verse 1

 Corpulent generals safe behind lines
 History's lessons drowned in red wine
 Poppies for young men, death's bitter trade
 All of those young lives betrayed

 Instrumental solo

 Bass line during instrumental is:

 E-----------------|      Repeat this throughout the instrumental
 B-----------------|
 G-----------------|
 D----0------------|
 A-0-2--0-2--------|
 E---------0-------|


 Repeat Chorus

 Verse 3: follow same format as in verse 1

 Midnight in Soho nineteen eighty-four
 Fixing in door ways, opium slaves
 Poppies for young men, death's bitter trade
 All of those young lives betrayed
 All for a children's crusade.

 Fade.

There was a typo in the last post. The F's should be E's.
Thanks to Akira Nakahara for mentioning that.
