Capercaillie - Soldier Boy



[Intro]
G

[Verse 1]
F              C            Dm7       C
Marching once again under a myriad of stars
F                C           Dm7            Am
Young men to the cause where all is fair in love and war
    F         C             Dm7          C
But rules are rules, and no mercy can be shown
       F               C             Dm7        C
In the fields of the departed, where history is born


[Verse 2]
   F                 C        Dm7         C
In all the lines and prose of war and its ways
    F                    C               Dm7                 Am
The words that speak the loudest are the ones that you would never say
     F            C             Dm7             C
From Arras to the Somme and the hell of Passchendaele
    F                C                   Dm7              C
For ninety years and counting, since you told your bloody tale


[Chorus]
F            G            Am              F
Hey, soldier boy, is your conscience clear?
        C                     F
Is your mind on the road from hell and back
                       G     F
To the one you love so dear?
           G                Am
I know you live in constant fear
    F                       C                   Dm7       C
And that's just the way the world seems through roses and tears


[Interlude]
C   F   C   F Am C   F G/B C   G


[Verse 3]
         F               C             Dm7              C
When the battle cries no more, and the martyr's work is done
        F              C                Dm7            Am
Did the voices in your head tell you to walk along the pathway
       F                 C         Dm7            C
Of the righteous and the good, and leave it all behind
       F               C               Dm7              C
In the fields of the departed with the remnants of your mind?


[Chorus]
F            G            Am              F
Hey, soldier boy, is your conscience clear?
        C                     F
Is your mind on the road from hell and back
                       G     F
To the one you love so dear?
           G                Am
I know you live in constant fear
    F                       C                   Dm7            Am  F
And that's just the way the world seems through roses and tears
                 Am      F
Through roses and tears
                 Dm7     F
Through roses and tears
          Dm7    D
Roses and tears


[Instrumental]
C  F  C  F  C  F  C  G  (2x)


[Verse 4]
   F             C          Dm7            C
So saddle up the horses and tighten up the reins
F               C        Dm7         Am
Face the bitter winds of tyranny and shame
   F                    C         Dm7            C
We blind ourselves with grace and favours of the heart
       F               C          Dm7             C
So our minds can hide away in the darkness of our past


[Chorus]
    F            G            Am              F
So, hey, soldier boy, is your conscience clear?
        C                     F
Is your mind on the road from hell and back
                       G     F
To the one you love so dear?
           G                Am
I know you live in constant fear
    F                       C                   Dm7       C
And that's just the way the world seems through roses and tears


[Chorus]
F            G            Am              F
Hey, soldier boy, is your conscience clear?
        C                     F
Is your mind on the road from hell and back
                       G     F
To the one you love so dear?
           G                Am
I know you live in constant fear
    F                       C                   Dm7       Am
And that's just the way the world seems through roses and tears


[Outro]

C        F     C  F  C  F  C  G
Roses and tears
