Am C F x2

Am                 C        F
He had just turned nineteen yesterday
Am        C           F
Wanted to be a school teacher someday
Am          C         F
Came from a small and modest town
Am        C      F                G
Had never before traveled abroad


Am               C            F
He signed on the promise of a college fund
Am          C             F
Pop and Mom begged him to stay at home
Am                 C           F
The last time they saw him was at an airport
Am                       C        F
He hugged his distraught mother a final time


G                                   F
He went abroad to serve when he was only nineteen
G                                   F
Reality caught up with him, stole a heart full of dreams


C                                                G 
He's never gonna get a chance to chase all those hopes
          Am              F
Lost them all amidst this war and smoke
C                         G 
Can you hear the sound of youth negated?
Am          F
Watch on TV names are taken
F~~
Mother, Mother
N.C.
My final transmission


Am C F X2

Paris Island was plain hell on earth
Got gunny yelling at him, "better prove your worth"
Moved on to Baghdad about six months on
Caught an IED today, now he is gone

He went abroad to serve when he was only nineteen
Reality caught up with him, stole a heart full of dreams

He's never gonna get a chance to chase all those hopes
Lost them all amidst this war and smoke
Can you hear the sound of youth negated?
Watch on TV names are taken
Mother, Mother
My final transmission


Am x4

F                     Am
Dad and Mom I am your only loving son
C                                G
Hid a written final transmission under my helmet
F                Am
Love you both in heart and mind
C                          G
A better set of parents no boy could ever find


Am~~
Weep for me and say thy prayers
N.C
Remember me through all your years
Am~~
Only got to serve for six months on and
N.C
If you're reading this I have passed and gone


[Verse Chords]
So I harbor my final request
A letter in my memory please send
Off to the President and all his men
Begging him with others to bring the troops back home

He's never gonna get a chance to chase all those hopes
Lost them all amidst the war and smoke
Can you hear the sound of youth negated?
Watch on TV names are taken

He's never gonna get a chance to chase all those hopes
Lost them all amidst this war and smoke
Can you hear the sound of youth negated?
Why are all those young lives taken?
Mother, Mother
My final transmission

I've been waiting for this tab for so long! This song means a lot to me, and I just couldn't figure it out. Thanks for posting this ^^.
