                WAR!   HUH!         what is it good...absolutely
NOTHING!

Repeat the above bit x4

Ebm
 War - I despise

Cos it means destruction of anything alive

War means tears

In a thousand mothers eyes

When their sons go off fighting and lose their lives I said

    Ebm  F#    F#        Ebm      F#                       F#
WAR! HUH! WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR? (absolutely) NOTHING! (War!)
    Ebm  F#    F#        Ebm      F#                       F#
WAR! HUH! WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR? (absolutely) NOTHING! (Good god!)
    Ebm  F#    F#        Ebm      F#                  F#
WAR! HUH! WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR? (absolutely) NOTHING!

Ebm
 War has shattered many young man's dreams

Playing the same old (???????????????)

Life is too short and precious to spend fighting

War don't bring life, it can only take it away I said

    Ebm  F#    F#        Ebm            F#                     F#
WAR! HUH! WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR? (say it again) NOTHING! (what?)
    Ebm  F#    F#        Ebm      F#                  F#
WAR! HUH! WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR? (absolutely) NOTHING!
    Ebm  F#    F#        Ebm      F#                  F#
WAR! HUH! WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR? (absolutely) NOTHING!

Ebm

  Ebm
I know we must fight to keep our freedom

But I know there's got to be a better way

then vocally ad lib it with various echoed 'NO!'s and 'Woah-oh's and stuff
for a bit then:

N.C.
WARWARWARWARWARWARWARWARWARWARWARWARWARWARWARWARWARWARWARWAR... etc.

Note:

During the verses -  the Ebm changes slightly like, and I can't say
 for sure what to here are the chords it might be, it could be all
 of them - but it makes playing the verses more interesting anyway!

 Ebm             Eb7sus4        Ebm7           Ebm6
-11-----------|--11----------|--11------11--|--11----------|--|

Hope this is of some help.
