There's a lot of cute little riffs in this song
Riff 1 - This is played halfway through each chorus
It isn't right either, but it sounds pretty close

Riff 2 -- This is played after the first chorus
Play it fast, it's hard to tell the first part of it, but even if you ca
play it, mess around in an E blues scale, and it'll sound fine.

Riff 3 -- This is played after the second chorus
This is all I could make of it, you'll have to play it at lightning spee
and even then it sounds wrong. At least it doesn't last very long :)

The little intro thing is E(hi) D C#, D C# B
(Drums only here)
Jennifer lost the war today, they'll find her burnt and raped
Through it all she must have wondered what have I done
E(lo) A D E(hi)
But nobody really cares today the world's a busy place
[C]Guess she must've [D]really sinned ahh, [B]really sinned ahh
[A]I guess we're [D]all just soldiers
E(hi)
She was only six years old
[A]Left to [D]die by strangers
(Riff 1)
While her family waits
[A]And if we're [D]all just soldiers
E(hi) D B
Is it so wrong to be afraid
B (Riff 2)
Jennifer lost the war
E(lo) A D E(hi)
Phoebe lost the war today there must be some mistake
[C]Say it happens [D]all the time [B]and it's said and done
E(lo) A D E(hi)
Little miss fifteen sixtyfive your soul remains unclaimed
[C]Guess you must have [D]really sinned, [B]ahh
[A]Morality [D]won't help her
E(hi)
When she lies silent in a morgue
[A]And all our [D]sorrows
Riff 1
Just don't count at all
[A]But will the [D]morning headlines
E(hi) D
Even say that it's a shame
[B]What we're heading [D]for[B]
B (Riff 3)
Jennifer Lost the war
B(mute) D C#
Seen it all before,
A E(lo)
Silent on the ground as he's walking away
B(mute) D C#
