Rich Mans War

Steve Earle

 EB7E
 Jimmy joined the army 'cause he had no place to go                
 F#m
There ain't nobody hirin' 'round here since all the jobs went down to Mexico
 B7
 Reckoned that he'd learn himself a trade maybe see the world
 AF#mB7
 Move to the city some day and marry a black haired girl
 AE
 Somebody somewhere had another plan     
 AE
 Now he's got a rifle in his hand
 B7C#m
Rollin' into Bagdhad wonderin' how he got this far                    
 EB7E
 Just another poor boy off to fight a rich man's war          

 EAEB7
                                     
 EB7E
 Bobby had an eagle and a flag tattooed on his arm            
 F#m
Red white and blue to the bone the day he landed in Kandahar              
 AF#mB7
 Left behind a pretty young wife and a baby girl        
 AF#mB7
 A stack of overdue bills and went off to save the world
 AE
 Been a year now and he's still there
 AE
 Chasin' ghosts in the thin dry air
 B7C#m
Meanwhile back at home the finance company took his car                     
 EB7E
 Just another poor boy off to fight a rich man's war          

 EAEB7
                                     
 C#mA
 When will we ever learn
 C#mB7
 When will we ever see
 C#mA
 Stand up and take our turn
 C#mB7
 Tellin' ourselves we're free

 EB7E
 Ali was the second son of a second son        
 F#m
Grew up in Gaza throwin' bottles and rocks when the tanks would come
 AF#mB7
 Ain't nothin' else to do around here just a game children play  
 AF#mB7
 Somethin' about livin' in fear all your life makes you hard that way
 AE
 He answered when he got the call
 AE
 Wrapped himself in death and he praised Allah
 B7C#m
A fat man in a new Mercedes drove him to the door      
 EB7E
 Just another poor boy off to fight a rich man's war
