CAPO 2 

INTRO:

Em                           D  C
I was there in the winter of '64
         D                   Bm            C 
When we camped in the ice at Nashville's doors
     G                    D       Em
Three hundred miles our trail had led
   D                   Bm        C
We barely had time to bury our dead
          C                              D
When the Yankees charged and the colors fell
D                   Bm      C
Overton hill was a living hell
        C                            D
When we called retreat it was almost dark
D                              Em
I died with a grapeshot in my heart

C    D          Em 
Say a prayer for peace      
C         G        D        
For every fallen son
C     D      Em
Set my spirit free
C          G        D
Let me lay down my gun
Am                        C
Sweet mother Mary I'm so tired
       C                       D           Em
But I can't come home 'til the last shot's fired

Em          D C
In June of 1944
D                   Bm            C
I waited in the blood of Omaha's shores
G               D       Em
Twenty-one and scared to death
D                 Bm   C
My heart poundin' in my chest
C                          D
I almost made the first seawall
D                   Bm      C
When my friends turned and saw me fall
        C                            D
I still smell the smoke, I can taste the mud
D                              Em
As I lay there dying from a loss of blood

C    D          Em 
Say a prayer for peace      
C         G        D        
For every fallen son
C     D      Em
Set my spirit free
C          G        D
Let me lay down my gun
Am                        C
Sweet mother Mary I'm so tired
       C                       D           Em
But I can't come home 'til the last shot's fired

bridge:
C          
I'm in the fields of Vietnam,
D
The mountains of Afghanistan
C
And I'm still hopin', waitin', prayin'
D
I did not die in vain

C    D          Em 
Say a prayer for peace
C         G        D  
For every fallen son
C     D       Em
Set our spirits free
C          G        D
Let us lay down our guns
Am                       C
Sweet mother Mary we're so tired
       C                        D           Em
But we can't come home 'til the last shot's fired
C                     Em                C
'Til the last shot's fired

[Choir:]
Say a prayer for peace (for peace)
For our daughters and our sons
Set our spirits free (set us free)
Let us lay down our guns

[Trace:]
Sweet mother Mary, we're so tired
But we can't come home

[Choir:]
No we can't come home
'Til the last shot's fired
