Intro:
Cast off the crutch that kills the pain
The red flag waving never meant the same
The kids of tomorrow don't need today
When they live in the sins of yesterday
Chorus 1:
[Am]Cast off the crutch that [C]kills the pain
The [G]red flag waving never [F]meant the same
The [C]kids of tomorrow don't [G]need today
When they [E]live in the sins of [E/G#]yesterday
Verse 1:
[Am] Well I've never seen us act like [G7/B]this
Our only hope is the minds of [Am]kids
And they'll show us a thing or [G7/B]two[E]
[Am] Our [C]only weapons are the guns of [G7/B]youth
It's only [E]time before they tighten the [Am]noose
And [C]then the hunt will be on for [G7/B]you[E]
Ian: Verse 1,/ means slide up
