Some Mothers Son

Kinks

 BbFBb
Some mother's son lies in a field
 D7GmFEbEb/D
 Someone has killed some mother's son today   
 CmFBb
 Head blown up by some soldier's gun
 DAD7
 While all the mothers stand and wait
 F#F#7BmAG
 Some mother's son ain't coming home today
 BbCD
 Some mothers son ain't got no grave

 BbFBb
 Two soldiers fighting in a trench
 D7GmFEbEb/D
 One soldier glances up to see the sun  
 CmFBbFEb
 And dreams of games he played when he was young
 DAD7
 And then his friend calls out his name
 F#F#7BmAG
 It stops his dream and as he turns his head
 BbCD
second later he is dead           (2 bars of D)

 BbFBb
 Some mother's son lies in a field
 D7GmFEbEb/D
 Back home they put his picture in frame 
 CmFBbFEb
 But all dead soldiers look the same      
 DAD7
 While all the parents stand and wait
 F#F#7BmAG
 To meet their children coming home from school
 BbCD
 Some mother's son is lying dead

 GD
Somewhere someone is crying
 AD
Someone is trying to be so brave
 BbF
But still the world keeps turning
 CFF7
Though all the children have gone away   

 BbFBb
 Some mother's son lies in a field
 D7GmFEbEb/D
 But in his mother's eyes he looks the same
 CmFBbFEb
 As on the day he went away               
 DAD7
 They put his picture on the wall  
 F#F#7BmAG
 They put flowers in the picture frame    
 BbCD
 Some mothers memory remains
