Capo 3rd Fret (chords not lined up perfectly)

Dm                   F
Battle hymns for the broken
Bm                   Am
Battle hymns for the misled
C                    A
Battle hymns for the wretched
Dm
The forgotten and the dead
Dm              F
Battle hymns of redemption
Bm            Am
Of solidarity and pride
C                    A
Battle hymns we will be singing
Dm
At the turning of the tide

Dm F C

Dm
Can you explain to the mothers
F
And the fathers of those
C
Who come riding home in coffins
Dm
In their military clothes
Dm
Shiny medals pinned
F
To their dead teenage chests
C
While the trumpets blare
Dm
And you lie your best
Dm
So ask all you want
F
From the dusk til the dawn
C
The answer's still no
Dm
Cause brother I'm gone
Dm                   F
Battle hymns for the broken
Bm                   Am
Battle hymns for the misled
C                    A
Battle hymns for the wretched
Dm
The forgotten and the dead
Dm              F
Battle hymns of redemption
Bm                Am
Of solidarity and pride
C                    A
Battle hymns we will be singing
Dm
At the turning of the tide
F               C                A
Can you explain away the sleight of hand
Am
And the criminality
C
Of spending souls for oil
Dm
Well in the mirror I can see
Dm
I am the path that leads down
F
I am a dark and bloody hall
C
I'm the reaper, executioner
Dm
Hangman, judge, and the law
Dm
So tie a yellow ribbon
F
Round the oak tree on the lawn
C
But the cavalry's not comin'
Dm
Cause brother they're gone
Dm                   F
Battle hymns for the broken
Bm                   Am
Battle hymns for the misled
C                    A
Battle hymns for the wretched
Dm
The forgotten and the dead
Dm              F
Battle hymns of redemption
Bm             Am
Of solidarity and pride
C                    A
Battle hymns we will be singing
Dm
At the turning of the tide
F C A
So I'm sharpening my shovel
Am
I'm firing the kiln
C
I'm blind and I am purposeful
Dm
A martyr on the hill
Dm
The dream you might be dreaming
F
Might be someone else's dream tonight
C
I'm the whisperer of misgivings
Dm
I'm the fading tail light
Dm
I'm the call for retribution
F
From the back of the smoke filled hall
C
I'm the vow of bitterness
Dm
I'm the poison in the well
Dm
I've a photographic memory
F
Of the deeds I will avenge
C
I'm the cold in the river hollow
Dm
I've a hatpin, I've a plan
Dm
I don't care of cause or consequence
F
Head shaved and body lean
C
I'm the go getter, the score settler
Dm
I'm the shadow on the green
Dm
There's a flock of blackbirds flying
F
Nearly ten thousand strong
C
Who set off this morning
Dm
And brother they're gone
Dm               F
Battle hymns for the broken
Bm                 Am
Battle hymns for the misled
C                A
Battle hymns for the wretched
Dm 
The forgotten, for the dead
Dm              F
Battle hymns of redemption
C                A
Of solidarity and pride
Dm
Battle hymns we will be singing
Dm
At the turning of the tide
