Some Mothers Son  Kinks

Some [Bb]mother's [F]son lies in a [Bb]field
[D7]Someone has killed some mother's [Gm]son [F]tod[Eb]ay  [Eb/D]
[Cm]Head blown up by [F]some soldier's [Bb]gun
[D]While all the [A]mothers stand and [D7]wait
[F#]Some mother's [F#7]son ain't coming [Bm]home [A]to[G]day
[Bb]Some mothers [C]son ain't got no [D]grave

[Bb]Two soldiers [F]fighting in a [Bb]trench
[D7]One soldier glances up to [Gm]see [F]the [Eb]sun [Eb/D]
[Cm]And dreams of [F]games he played when [Bb]he [F]was [Eb]young
[D]And then his fr[A]iend calls out his [D7]name
[F#]It stops his d[F#7]ream and as he [Bm]turns [A]his [G]head
A [Bb]second [C]later he is [D]dead           (2 bars of D)

[Bb]Some mother's [F]son lies in a [Bb]field
[D7]Back home they put his picture [Gm]in [F]a [Eb]frame[Eb/D]
[Cm]But all dead [F]soldiers look the [Bb]same [F]    [Eb]
[D]While all the [A]parents stand and w[D7]ait
[F#]To meet their [F#7]children coming [Bm]home [A]from [G]school
[Bb]Some mother's [C]son is lying [D]dead
Some[G]where someone is [D]crying
Someone is [A]trying to be so [D]brave
But [Bb]still the world keeps tu[F]rning
Though all the c[C]hildren have gone [F]away  [F7]
[Bb]Some mother's [F]son lies in a [Bb]field
[D7]But in his mother's eyes he loo[Gm]ks [F]th[Eb]e sam[Eb/D]e
[Cm]As on the day[F] he went away     [Bb]     [F]    [Eb]
[D]They put his p[A]icture on the wall [D7]
[F#]They put flowe[F#7]rs in the pictur[Bm]e fra[A]me   [G]
[Bb]Some mothers m[C]emory remains[D]
