[E]    [B]    
He said, “Son,[E]    
have you see the worl[G#m]d?    
Well, what would you say[A]    
if I said that you could?[E]    
Just carry this gu[A]n  
and you’ll even get paid[E].”  
I said, “That sounds pretty good[B].”  

Black leather boots[E],  
spit-shined so bri[G#m]ght    
They cut off my hair[A]    
but it looked alright[E]    
We marched and we san[A]g,  
we all became friends[E]    
As we learned how to fight[B]    

A hero of war[C#m],    
yeah that’s what I’ll be[A]    
And when I come home[E]    
they’ll be damn proud of me[B]    
I’ll carry this flag[C#m]    
To the grave if I must[A]    
Because it’s flag that I love[E]    
And a flag that I trust[B]    

I kicked in the door[E]    
I yelled my commands[G#m]    
The children, they cried[A]    
But I got my man[E]    
We took him away[A]    
A bag over his face[E]    
From his family and his friends[B]    

They took off h[E]is clothes
They pissed in his hands[G#m]    
I told them to st[A]op  
But then I joined in[E]    
We beat him with guns[A]    
And batons not just once[E]    
But again and again[B]    

A hero of war[C#m],    
yeah that’s what I’ll be[A]    
And when I come home[E]    
they’ll be damn proud of me[B]    
I’ll carry this flag[C#m]    
To the grave if I must[A]    
Because it’s flag that I love[E]    
And a flag that I trust[B]    

She wal[E]ked through bullets and ha[G#m]ze    
I asked her to stop[A]    
I begged her to stay[E]    
But she pressed on[A]    
So I lifted my gun[E]    
And I fired away[B]    

The she[E]lls jumped through the sm[G#m]oke    
And into the sa[A]nd  
That the blood now had soa[E]ked  
She collapse[A]d with a flag in her han[E]d  
A flag white as sno[B]w  

A hero of wa[C#m]r    
Is that what they see[A]    
Just medals and scars[E]    
So damn proud of me[B]    
And I brought home that fla[C#m]g    
Now it gathers dust[A]    
But it’s a flag that I love[E]    
It’s the only flag I trust[B]    

He said, “S[E]on,  
have you seen the world[G#m]?    
Well what would you sa[A]y,  
if I said that you could?[E]"  


He said, “Son,
have you see the world?
Well, what would you say
if I said that you could?
Just carry this gun
and you’ll even get paid.”
I said, “That sounds pretty good.”

Black leather boots,
spit-shined so bright
They cut off my hair
but it looked alright
We marched and we sang,
we all became friends
As we learned how to fight

A hero of war,
yeah that’s what I’ll be
And when I come home
they’ll be damn proud of me
I’ll carry this flag
To the grave if I must
Because it’s flag that I love
And a flag that I trust

I kicked in the door
I yelled my commands
The children, they cried
But I got my man
We took him away
A bag over his face
From his family and his friends

They took off his clothes
They pissed in his hands
I told them to stop
But then I joined in
We beat him with guns
And batons not just once
But again and again

A hero of war,
yeah that’s what I’ll be
And when I come home
they’ll be damn proud of me
I’ll carry this flag
To the grave if I must
Because it’s flag that I love
And a flag that I trust

She walked through bullets and haze
I asked her to stop
I begged her to stay
But she pressed on
So I lifted my gun
And I fired away

The shells jumped through the smoke
And into the sand
That the blood now had soaked
She collapsed with a flag in her hand
A flag white as snow

A hero of war
Is that what they see
Just medals and scars
So damn proud of me
And I brought home that flag
Now it gathers dust
But it’s a flag that I love
It’s the only flag I trust

He said, “Son,
have you seen the world?
Well what would you say,
if I said that you could?"
