Drop-D

[Verse]
D
I took a musket ball in Chancellorsville
Bm                A        D
I went down and I lie here still
D
Underneath a cross of stone
    Bm                                D
The world has turned and time's moved on
Bm                A       Bm
There are seasons when it seems
     E    F        G      A
That everyone's forgotten me

[Chorus]
       G        A         D
'Till, the last Monday in May
     G       A                  D
When all the springtime flowers bloom
G             A           Bm
They come and decorate my grave
         A                G
But only bones lie here entombed
G         A         Bm               A
My spirit flies as high as Old Glory waves
    G        A         D
On, the last Monday in May

[Verse]
D
I fough on a distant shore
Bm            A       D
In the war to end all wars
D
World War One turned into Two
Bm           A     D
Argonne into Pellielieu
     Bm              A        Bm
It's hard to rest so far from home
        E     F        G    A
But one day a year I'm not alone

[Chorus]
G        A         D
The last Monday in May
     G       A                  D
When all the springtime flowers bloom
G             A           Bm
They come and decorate my grave
         A                G
But only bones lie here entombed
G         A         Bm               A
My spirit flies as high as Old Glory waves
    G        A         D
On, the last Monday in May

[Bridge]
         G          A
From the jungles of Vietnam
       G               A
To the mounatins of Afghanistan
        Bm
And whatever wars are yet to be
      E        F        G       A
We'll fight to keep our country free

[Verse]
D
My chopper went down in Iraq
Bm                      A       D
One more week and I'dve made it back
D
Now my war and battle's done
  Bm               A     D
I rest in peace in Arlington
   Bm                A         Bm
My wife is here most days with me
          E        F       G    A
Won't you come and keep us company

[Outro]
G        A         D
The last Monday in May
     G       A                  D
When all the springtime flowers bloom
G             A           Bm
They come and decorate my grave
         A                G
But only bones lie here entombed
G         A         Bm               A
My spirit flies as high as Old Glory waves
G        A                 Bm           A
Remember all of us and the sacrifice we made
    G        A         D
On, the last Monday in May
G        A         D
The last Monday in May...

Well, because you're in drop-d, the chord is actually a Bm/F#, which is just the bottom four strings of a Bm, so XX4432. I still barre it the same way, but "aim" for the four bottom strings when I'm in drop-d.
