If I said that you could?

Just carry this gun.

Verse 2:

              C
Black leather boots
               Em
Spit-shined so bright
                F                  
They cut off my hair 
               C
but it looked alright
                  F
We marched and we sang
              C
We all became friends
                     G     Gadd11  G  Gadd11
As we learned how to fight

Chorus:

          Am
A hero of war
                      F
Yeah that's what I'll be
                C
And when I come home
                         G
They'll be damn proud of me
                Am 
I'll carry this flag
                  F
To the grave if I must
                             C
Because it's the flag that I love
                  G
And a flag that I trust

Verse 3:

                C
I kicked in the door
            Em 
I yelled my commands
                   F
The children, they cried
             C
But I got my man
            F
We took him away
               C
A bag over his face
                        G      Gadd11  G   Gadd11
From his family and his friends

Verse 4:

                  C
They took off his clothes
                   Em 
They pissed in his hands
               F
I told them to stop
                  C
But then I joined in
                 F 
We beat him with guns
                    C
And batons not just once
              G    Gadd11  G
But again and again 

Chorus:

          Am 
A hero of war
                      F
Yeah that's what I'll be
                C
And when I come home
                         G
They'll be damn proud of me
                Am
I'll carry this flag
                  F
To the grave if I must
                             C
Because it's the flag that I love
                  G   
And a flag that I trust

Verse 5:

    C                          
She walked 
                    Em
through bullets and haze
               F
I asked her to stop
                C
I begged her to stay
                F
But she pressed on
               C
So I lifted my gun
            G    Gadd11  G
And I fired away

Verse 6:

    C                          
The shells 
                   Em
jumped through the smoke
             F
And into the sand
                       C
That the blood now had soaked
    F                           
She collapsed 
                   C
with a flag in her hand
                G     Gadd11  G  Gadd11
A flag white as snow

Chorus:

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

outro:

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