Artist: Rise Against Song: Hero Of War Album: Appeal To Reason Tabbed by: guitarquero Hey everyone. This is my first tab, and this is how I play this song. I Don't know if its how Rise against plays it but it sounds pretty good to me and its alot easier than playing it without a capo. Have fun with it! Standard tuning Capo on 4th fret Chords: EADGBe C x32010 Em 022000 F 133211 G 320033 G 320003 Gadd11 320013 Am x02210 [Verse 1] C He said, "Son, Em Have you see the world? F Well, what would you say C If I said that you could? F Just carry this gun. C and you’ll even get paid." G Gadd11 G Gadd11 <--(listen to the song I said, "That sounds pretty good." to get this part) [Verse 2] C Black leather boots Em Spit-shined so bright F They cut off my hair C but it looked alright F We marched and we sang C We all became friends G Gadd11 G Gadd11 As we learned how to fight [Chorus] Am A hero of war F Yeah that’s what I’ll be C And when I come home G They’ll be damn proud of me Am I’ll carry this flag F To the grave if I must C Because it’s the flag that I love G And a flag that I trust [Verse 3] C I kicked in the door Em I yelled my commands F The children, they cried C But I got my man F We took him away C A bag over his face G Gadd11 G Gadd11 From his family and his friends [Verse 4] C They took off his clothes Em They pissed in his hands F I told them to stop C But then I joined in F We beat him with guns C And batons not just once G Gadd11 G But again and again [Chorus] Am A hero of war F Yeah that’s what I’ll be C And when I come home G They’ll be damn proud of me Am I’ll carry this flag F To the grave if I must C Because it’s the flag that I love G And a flag that I trust [Verse 5] C She walked Em through bullets and haze F I asked her to stop C I begged her to stay F But she pressed on C So I lifted my gun G Gadd11 G And I fired away [Verse 6] C The shells Em jumped through the smoke F And into the sand C That the blood now had soaked F She collapsed C with a flag in her hand G Gadd11 G Gadd11 A flag white as snow [Chorus] Am A hero of war F Is that what they see C Just medals and scars G So damn proud of me Am And I brought home that flag F Now it gathers dust C But it’s a flag that I love G It’s the only flag I trust [outro] C Em He said, "Son, have you seen the world? F C Well what would you say, if I said that you could?"
