The Wall  Bruce Springsteen

[F] [C]  

(Verse 1)
[F]Cigarettes and a bottle of beer, this poem that I wrote [C]for you
This black [F]stone and these hard tears are all I got left now o[C]f you
[Am]I remember you in your Marine uniform [Am7/G]laughing, laughing at your ship out [C]party
I read[Am7] Robert McN[Am7/G]amara says he's[C] sorry
(Verse 2)
Your high bo[F]ots and striped t-shirt, ah, Billy you looked so [C]bad
Yeah y[F]ou and your rock and roll band,[Fsus2] you were the best thing this sh*t town eve[C]r had
[Am7]Now the men that put you here eat with thei[Am7/G]r families in rich din[C]ing halls
And [Am7]apology and forgiveness got n[Am7/G]o place here at[C] all, here at the [F]wall[C]
(Verse 3)
Well I'm [F]sorry I missed you last ye[Fmaj7]ar, I couldn't find no one to drive me[C]
If your e[F]yes could cut through that black sto[Fmaj7]ne, tell me would they recognize m[C]e
[Am]For the living time it must be [Am7/G]served as the day goe[C]s on
[Am7]Cigarettes and a bottle of bee[Am7/G]r, skin on black st[C]one
(Verse 4)
On the ground d[F]og tags and wreaths of flowers, with the ribbons red as the bl[C]ood
[F]Red as the blood you spilled in the Central Highlands mu[C]d
Limousines r[Am7]ush down Pennsylvania Avenue,[Am7/G] rustling the leaves as they f[C]all
[Am7]And apology and forgiveness got no[Am/G] place here at a[C]ll, here at [Fsus2]the wa[C]ll
F C F C Am Am7/G C Am Am7/G C (until fade out)
