G G G G
Am G D D

[G]I always knew that you would
Take yourself far from home
As [Am]soon as, as [G]far as
You could go[D]    

By the [G]quarter inch cut of your hair
And the army issued green
For the [Am]past six weeks I can tell [G]    
Where you've been[D]    

For I knew,[G] I could see [D]    
It was [Am]all cut and dried to me [G]    
There was sold[Am]ier's blue blood
[G]Streaming inside your veins [D]    

There's a [G]world outside of this room [D]    
And when you [Am]meet it promise [G]me  
That [Am]you won't [G]meet it
With your [D]gun  

For now,[G] you are one
One of the brave few
It's so [Am]awful sad that we need [G]    
Boys like you [D]    

I [G]hope the day never comes
For here's your live round, son
Stock and bar[Am]rel, safety trig[G]ger  
Here's your gun [D]    

For I knew[G], I could see [D]    
It was all [Am] cut and dried to me [G]    
There was sold[Am]ier's blue blood
[G]Streaming inside your veins [D]    

There's a wor[G]ld outside of this room [D]    
And when you [Am]meet it promise me [G]    
That [Am]you won't [G]meet it
With your [D] gun, taking aim

For I don't [G]mean, to [Am]argue
That they've [G]made a decent boy of you [Am]    
I don't [G]mean to spoil your home[D]coming, but
[Am]Baby brother, you would expect me to [G]    

G

Stock and [Am]barrel, safety trigger [G]    
Here's your gun [D]    

So now [G] does your heart pitter-pat
With that patriotic sound
When you [Am]see the stripes of
[G]Old Glory [D]waving

For I knew[G], I could see [D]    
It was all [Am] cut and dried to me [G]    
There was sold[Am]ier's blue blood
[G]Streaming inside your veins [D]    

There's a wor[G]ld outside of this room [D]    
And when you [Am]meet it promise [G]me  
That [Am]you won't [G]meet it
With your [D] gun, taking aim

For I don't [G]mean, to [Am]argue
That they've [G]made a decent boy of you [Am]    
I don't [G]mean to spoil your home[D]coming
My [Am]baby brother [D]Jude

And I don't [G]mean to [Am]hurt you
By [G]saying these things a[Am]gain   
They're so [G]good at making sold[D]iers
But they're [Am]not as good at making
[G]Men

Am G D D

I always knew that you would
Take yourself far from home
As soon as, as far as
You could go

By the quarter inch cut of your hair
And the army issued green
For the past six weeks I can tell
Where you've been

For I knew, I could see
It was all cut and dried to me
There was soldier's blue blood
Streaming inside your veins

There's a world outside of this room
And when you meet it promise me
That you won't meet it
With your gun

For now, you are one
One of the brave few
It's so awful sad that we need
Boys like you

I hope the day never comes
For here's your live round, son
Stock and barrel, safety trigger
Here's your gun

For I knew, I could see
It was all cut and dried to me
There was soldier's blue blood
Streaming inside your veins

There's a world outside of this room
And when you meet it promise me
That you won't meet it
With your gun, taking aim

For I don't mean, to argue
That they've made a decent boy of you
I don't mean to spoil your homecoming, but
Baby brother, you would expect me to

G

Stock and barrel, safety trigger
Here's your gun

So now does your heart pitter-pat
With that patriotic sound
When you see the stripes of
Old Glory waving

For I knew, I could see
It was all cut and dried to me
There was soldier's blue blood
Streaming inside your veins

There's a world outside of this room
And when you meet it promise me
That you won't meet it
With your gun, taking aim

For I don't mean, to argue
That they've made a decent boy of you
I don't mean to spoil your homecoming
My baby brother Jude

And I don't mean to hurt you
By saying these things again
They're so good at making soldiers
But they're not as good at making
Men
