Just a song for all the forgotten heroes.
[song]
{t: Yesterday’s Hero}
{st: By Jeff Gilpin}
{c: November 4, 2012}

He [Am]grew up in America
[F]Loved his [G]country [Am]so
[Am]After school enlisted as a
[F]Regular [G]GI [Am]Joe
[C]He went off to [G]fight the war
[F]A hero through and [G]through
[Am]Served his country long and proud
The [F]way most [G]heroes [Am]do

[C][G][F][G][E][E7]

[Am]Trained to use a rifle
And to [F]be part [G]of a [Am]team
[Am]Keeping all issued equipment
[F]Servicea[G]ble and [Am]clean
[C]Keep your head when [G]things go red
And [F]whine down when you’re [G]done
Be [Am]sure your feelings stay in check
And [F]don’t have [G]too much [Am]fun

[C][G][F][G][E][E7]

[Am]Finished up his duty
[F]Honora[G]bly dis[Am]charged
[Am]Thank you for your service son
Now [F]here is [G]your re[Am]ward
A [C]skill that you must [G]put away
Un[F]less you can ap[G]ply
Your [Am]heavy duty marksmanship
[F]Much more [G]civi[Am]lized

[C][G][F][G][E][E7]

[Am]Never found a fitting job
[F]Now he’s [G]hearing [Am]voices
[Am]Comes from being wound to tight
And [F]making [G]deadly [Am]choices
[C]Living on the [G]street somewhere
His [F]job is just sur[G]vive
[Am]Shelter food drink and warmth
[F]Try and [G]keep a[Am]live

[C][G][F][G][E][E7]

He’s [Am]got another team now
The [F]unit [G]of the [Am]homeless
[Am]Hero days forgotten now
[F]Though he [G]couldn’t [Am]care less
He [C]doesn’t mind the [G]lifestyle
For he’s [F]done it all be[G]fore
[Am]Keeping his country safe and sound
U[F]pon some [G]foreign [Am]shore

[C][G][F][G][Am][F][G][Am]

Re: Yesterday

Wow! That's a good song!....  Sorry I ask so many questions ...:(... but how did you get it in that format? I guess that's the right word...

Tip of the week: stay CLEAR of cybermen!!!

P.S. I will try to change this every week at the longest

Re: Yesterday

Thanks!

Re: Yesterday

Not sure why there are extra posts of this song. It was not intentially but for some reason it will not let me delete them now.

Re: Yesterday

Hi Jeff
I hope you don't mind I deleted the extra two posts of your song.
If you get rid of the Chopro format it lets you delete ok it's a bit of a glich I think.

Re: Yesterday

Nice song - appropriate for today - God Bless every veteran !!   They should be getting the big bucks instead of these guys that play sports for millions

Re: Yesterday

Thanks TIGLJK,

I agree but at least the NFL gives a lot back for the troups. I just feel bad for all the homeless Vets who have been unable to adjust to civilian life...still quite a few out there.
