Dm                                         C
I am just an aging drummer-boy, and in the wars I used to play
         Bb                              Dm
And I've called a tune to many a torture session.
Dm                                          C
Now they say I am a war criminal, and I'm a-fading away.
Bb
Father, please hear my confession.
 
       G                     D
I have legalized robbery and called it belief
       G                          D
I have run with the money, I have hid like a thief
       G                         D
I have rewritten history with my armies and my crooks
D        C         Am         D
Invented memories,      I did burn all the books
          Dm                                 C              Em
And I can still hear his laughter, and I can still hear his song
Emsus2                 Em                 D         C   D   C 
         The man's too big, the man's too strong
 
C  Cm  G  Gm etc.
 
 
For chords, play the Dm, D, C, Em, Am and G as open. Play the Bb in 1st
position. I play the Emsus2, Gm and Cm as:
 
 Emsus2     Gm      Cm
e--2-       -3-    -3-
B--0-       -3-    -1-
G--0-       -3-    -0-
D--2-       -x-    -1-
A--2-       -x-    -x-
E--0-       -x-    -x-
