Capo 3

[Intro]
G C/G G C/G

[Verse 1]
  G                  C/G               G            C/G
I never thought that this is where I'd settle down. 
  G                  C/G             G 
I thought I'd die an old man back in my hometown. 
          G/F#    Em
They gave me this plot of land,
            C          D         G          G/F#
Me and some other men, for a job well done.   
          G                    C/G            G           C/G
There's a big White House sits on a hill just up the road.
    G              C/G                G  
The man inside, he cried the day they brought me home. 
     G/F#   Em                    C           D
They folded up a flag and told my Mom and Dad:
                G
"We're proud of your son." 

[Chorus]
        C                   D                 G
And I'm proud to be on this peaceful piece of property.
       C                     D              G  
I'm on sacred ground and I'm in the best of company.
    Em                 D                C
I'm thankful for those thankful for the things I've done.
      D
I can rest in peace; 
               C           D
I'm one of the chosen ones:
             G              C/G          G          C/G
I made it to Arlington.

[Verse 2]
    G            C/G                  G           C/G
I remember Daddy brought me here when I was eight. 
   G                   C/G               G
We searched all day to find out where my granddad lay. 
         G/F#       Em
And when we finally found that cross,  
                       C             D          G       C/G
He said: "Son, this is what it costs to keep us free."
    G            G/C             A   G         C/G
Now here I am, a thousand stones way from him.
   G            G/C             G 
He recognized men the first day I came in.
       G/F# Em                 C                 D
And it gave me a chill when he clicked his heels,
            G
And saluted me. 

[Chorus]
        C                   D                 G
And I'm proud to be on this peaceful piece of property.
       C                     D              G  
I'm on sacred ground and I'm in the best of company.
    Em                 D                C
I'm thankful for those thankful for the things I've done.
      D
I can rest in peace; 
               C           D
I'm one of the chosen ones:
             G              C/G          G          C/G
I made it to Arlington.

[Bridge]
    Em          D    G      G/F# Em
And everytime I hear twenty one guns,
C                           G/B  C       D
I know they brought another hero home to us.

[Outro]
      Em                 D/F#             C 
We're thankful for those thankful for the things we've done.
       D
We can rest in peace;  
           C           D
We are the chosen ones:
           G              C/G   G   C/G
We made it to Arlington.
      Em
Yeah, dust to dust,
      D
Don't cry for us: 
We made it to Arlington.
G C/G G C/G
