Verse 1:

He said, [C]"Son,
Have you see the [Em]world?
Well, what would you[F] say
If I said that you [C]could?
Just carry this [F]gun.
and you’ll even get [C]paid."
G Gadd11 g Gadd11 <--(listen to the song
I said, "That sounds pretty good." to get this part)

Verse 2:

Black leather [C]boots
Spit-shined so [Em]bright
They cut off my [F]hair
but it looked a[C]lright
We marched and we [F]sang
We all became [C]friends
As we learned how to [G]fight [Gadd11]        [G]   [Gadd11]

Chorus:

A hero of [Am]war
Yeah that’s what I’ll [F]be
And when I come [C]home
They’ll be damn proud of [G]me
I’ll carry this [Am]flag
To the grave if I [F]must
Because it’s the flag that I [C]love
And a flag that I [G]trust

Verse 3:

I kicked in the [C]door
I yelled my [Em]commands
The children, they [F]cried
But I got my [C]man
We took him [F]away
A bag over his [C]face
From his family and his [G]friends[Gadd11]        [G]    [Gadd11]

Verse 4:

They took off his [C]clothes
They pissed in his [Em]hands
I told them to [F]stop
But then I joined [C]in
We beat him with [F]guns
And batons not just [C]once
But again and [G]again[Gadd11]        [G]

Chorus:

A hero of [Am]war
Yeah that’s what I’ll [F]be
And when I come [C]home
They’ll be damn proud of [G]me
I’ll carry this [Am]flag
To the grave if I [F]must
Because it’s the flag that I [C]love
And a flag that I [G]trust

Verse 5:

She [C]walked
through bullets and [Em]haze
I asked her to [F]stop
I begged her to [C]stay
But she pressed [F]on
So I lifted my [C]gun
And I fired [G]away [Gadd11]        [G]

Verse 6:

The [C]shells
jumped through the [Em]smoke
And into the [F]sand
That the blood now had [C]soaked
She [F]collapsed
with a flag in her [C]hand
A flag white as [G]snow  [Gadd11]        [G]   [Gadd11]

Chorus:

A hero of [Am]war
Is that what the [F]see
Just medals and [C]scars
So damn proud of [G]me
And I brought home that [Am]flag
Now it gathers [F]dust
But it’s a flag that I [C]love
It’s the only flag I [G]trust

outro:

He said, [C]"Son, have you seen th[Em]e world?
Well what would you [F]say, if I said that you [C]could?"

The Song is in E major
or Capo 4 and play the chords as written here, its still E major

CAPO on 4 fixes it right up, at least to my ear

Hey there, this is a great song but I think you have all the chords wrong.
It should be played like this...

Verse: each chord is strumed for 1 messure of 4 in this order.
C#m(?) = 046654


E,Abm,C#m,B,A,E,B,B

during the last two messures while your on the B there is a decending melody wich is something like this

024442 --- 022442 --- 021442 --- 022442

Chorus: played 2x
A,E,B,B(with decending riff)

Hope this helps
