            G#
He's just a drunk
       C#        G#
Yer an old salty dog
G#           F             
Stagger, you drink and then fall
Bb                             C#         
Unaware that your life is held up against the wall
G#           F
Aching, just dying inside
          Bb                     C#
Still you cling on tight to your obstinate pride


G#  F  Bb  C# (x3)
     F#
Lets Gooo


G#       F          Bb         C#  
I knew a man at the end of the bar
       G#      F             Bb         C#  
Wore a look of erosion, some old battle scars
G#        F        Bb           C#  
Told many stories, none of them bright
       Bb                         C#
If you bought him liberations, he spun them all night

G#             F         Bb               C#  
Started out in Normandy, moved right onto France
    G#        F               Bb      C#  
The battle of Berlin and more veteran partance
       G#       F           Bb           C#  
At the end this generation, not like the last
Bb                 C#
Kids today need to learn from the past


[Chorus]
G#           F
Stagger, you drink and then fall
Bb                             G#      
Unaware that your life is held up against the wall
G#           F   
Aching, just dying inside
          Bb                     G#
Still you cling on tight to your obstinate pride


G#         F              Bb        C#  
Getting to loud barkeeper gives the hook
G#              F                 Bb          C#  
All the patrons laugh so hard the dive nearly shook
G#       F             Bb          C#  
Into the alley he goes furious and irate
Bb                     C#
Expletives and threats babbled in hate
G#         F              Bb     C#  
Finally he collapses down to the asphalt
G#               F            Bb       C#  
Battered mug and lacerations, it's his fault
G#             F               Bb        C#  
Bystanders tap numbers for the ambulance call
Bb                     C#
Salty dog going for an E.R. haul


[Chorus]


G#               F
Salt you stagger away and then fall
Bb                        C#
Continuously stubborn and defiant through it all
G#                 F
Vet you'll rattle, bemoan and berate
Bb                 C#
People not backing ideals out of date


G#                       F
What he doesn't realize (What he doesn’t realize.)
C#                                 C        Bb
Is he's the enemy of him (He’s the enemy of him)
G#                 F
What he can't see (What he doesn’t realize.)
        C#                           C        Bb
Is he's stuck in yesterday (He’s the enemy of him)

G#                 F
Battle EMT's, they try to help him
Bb                            C#
Inside self imposed defiance, he'd rather swim
G#        F#     Bb          C#     C(x3) Bb(x3)
Inside of him, a crazy death wish


[Chorus]


G#                  F#  
I knew a man at the end of the bar
       Bb                  C#       
With a VFW jacket and some old battle scars
        G#              F#  
Did you hear the news?
          Bb              C# (x6)   G#
Stagger's wish came true
