[Intro/Chorus]
A                     C#m               D     E
   Ain't nobody gonna steal this heart away
A                     C#m               D     E
   Ain't nobody gonna steal this heart away

[Verse 1]
   A                 Amaj7            D           
     When the war is over got to get away
E  A                 Amaj7                 D
     Pack my bag to no place in no time no day
E  A                                 
     You and I we used each other's shoulder
   Bm
     Still so young but somehow so much older
   D         E    D                E      A
     How can I go home and not get blown away

[Bridge]
F#m                  C#m
   You and I had our sights set on something
D                             A
   Hope this doesn't mean our days are numbered
C#m                   D                  E
   I've got plans for more than a wanted man
F#m                C#m
   All around this chaos and madness
D                             A
   Can't help feeling nothing more than sadness
C#m               D                  E
   Only choice to face it the best I can

[Verse 2]
   A                                     D
     When the war is over got to start again
E  A                                          D
     Try to hold a trace of what it was back then
E  A                                     
     You and I, we sent each other stories
   Bm
     Just a page I'm lost in all it's glory
   D         E    D                E       A
     How can I go home and not get blown away
