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!

[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?"
