[Dm]Oh she kn[G]ows
She takes his [C]hand
[Am]And prays the child will understand
[Dm]At the door they[G] watch the men go [C]by
[Am]In the clothes that daddy wore
[Bb]Mother’s pride
[G]Baby boy
[C]His father’s eyes
He’s [Am]a soldier waiting for [Bb]a war
Time will c[G]ome
He’ll hold a [Gsus4]gun
His father’s s[G]on
-repeat intro-

[Dm]  And as he[G] grows
He hears the b[C]and
[Am]Takes the step from boy to man
[Dm]At the shore she wav[G]es her son good[C]bye
[Am]Like the man she did before
[Bb]Mother’s pride
[G]Just a boy
[C]His country’s eyes
He’s [Am]a soldier waving at the[Bb] shore
And in her h[G]eart
the time has c[Gsus4]ome
To lose a [G]son

-repeat intro-

[Dm]And all the husbands, all the sons, [G]all the lovers gone
They make no d[C]ifference
No d[Am]ifference in the end
[Dm]   Still hear the woman [G]say your daddy died a[C] hero
[Am]In the name of God and man
[Bb]Mother’s pride
[G]Crazy boy
[C]His lifeless eyes
He’s a [Am]soldier now foreve[Bb]rmore
[G]use> He’ll h[Gsus4]old a gun ‘till kingdom [G]come
