Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This version still has some kinks and is far from being perfect, but it's the only 
one and it is at least an easy version to sing along to. If you have any suggestions 
on how to improve it please do tell and I'll happily change it.

[Intro]
Am G Am 
Am G Am


[Verse]
        Am            G                   F              Am
Dearest Sarah I'm compelled to write with aching fearful hands 
Am             G             F
Just in case I never make it back 
  Am              G             F
I left our family weeks ago for battle stricken lands 
      Am              G               Am
And I fear I wont survive the next attack 

  Am                 G           F               Am
I fled Rhode Island willingly to join the Union force 
       Am            G            F
Understanding I may never know my boys 
         Am                     G            F             Am
But this country's strength of government is in a great divorce 
        Am             G                Am
And for this I risk my life and all its joys 

   Am         G              F           Am
Oh Sarah I do understand within my sacrifice 
     Am           G              F
Goes nearly every joy for you as well 
      Am                 G             F                Am
But I hope you sense within my words I thought about it twice 
        Am             G             Am
But our nation cast a thick momentus spell 


[Chorus]
   Am            G
Oh Sarah start a life without me 
Am                G
Raise our boys to gentlemen 
Am               G             F              Am
Thrive until the day you pass away and we can meet again 
Am            G
Understand my inner fight 
  Am                G
I didn't choose the war 
  Am            G
I sided with democracy 
   F            C
As that is what I'm dying for 
   F          Am              C
Oh Sarah - my love for you is deathless 
   G                          Am
Oh Sarah - my love for you is deathless


[Instrumental]
Am G Am
Am G Am


[Verse]
        Am            G              F           Am
Growing up without my father weighed heavy on my brain 
      Am                  G                   F
And I dread this makes my children dance that waltz 
        Am                 G                           F               Am
And I'm sure at times your trust was breached and your love for me did wane 
       Am            G                Am
But I ask you to forgive me for these faults 

      Am                G            F               Am
And I can't express the irony of the peaceful summer breeze 
Am            G              F
Dusting my batallion as they rest  
           Am              G               F            C
'Cause within this evening warmness lies a dark and icy freeze 
       D                              Am
That whispered me to send you this request 


[Chorus]
Am               G
Oh Sarah start a life without me 
Am                G
Raise our boys to gentlemen 
Am               G             F              Am
Thrive until the day you pass away and we can meet again 
Am            G
Understand my inner fight 
  Am                G
I didn't choose the war 
  Am            G
I sided with democracy 
   F            C
As that is what I'm dying for 
   F                          C
Oh Sarah - my love for you is deathless 
   G            Am
Oh Sarah - it's deathless


[Verse]
     Am             G               F               Am
I am one of hundred thousand paying all that we can pay 
Am              G               F
Standing for an object we can't see 
    Am                 G             F                 Am
Now raise our children proudly to be graceous for each day
      Am               G                Am
And remind them of the reasons they are free 

        Am                G            F                     Am
If it's true the dead can drift unseen around the loves they had 
     Am            G              F
Then I will be the wind upon your cheek 
        Am                      G         F           Am
And the darkest moments in your life will never be so bad 
      Am             G                     Am
Cause I will be your strength when you are weak 


[Chorus]
Am               G
Oh Sarah start a life without me 
Am                G
Raise our boys to gentlemen 
Am               G             F              Am
Thrive until the day you pass away and we can meet again 
Am            G
Understand my inner fight 
  Am                G
I didn't choose the war 
  Am            G
I sided with democracy 
   F            C
As that is what I'm dying for 
   F                          C
Oh Sarah - my love for you is deathless 
   G            Am
Oh Sarah - it's deathless
   G                         Am
Oh Sarah, my love for you is deathless 
   G                         Am
Oh Sarah, my love for you is deathless
