Still Fighting the War  Slaid Cleaves

<i></i>Cadd9 G
Hard times comin home now
[Cadd9]Can't get your feet on the groun[G]d
[Cadd9]Thoughts and issues and [G]no one w[G/F#]ants you ar[Em]ound [D]
[Cadd9]Barely sleepin and you c[G]an't get through to the [Am] VA [C/B] on the ph[C]one
[Cadd9]No one is hiring and n[G]o one wants to [G/F#]give you a [Em]loan [D]
And [Cadd9]everyone else is [D]carryin on just [G]like they've alw[G/F#]ays done be[Em]fore
You've bee[Cadd9]n home for a couple a y[D]ears now buddy but you're[Cadd9] still f[D]ightin
the w[G]ar
Flashback to Falluja
Lost another best friend
Three tours of duty and you're wondering when it's all gonna end
Bodies broken and bones shattered
Blood and dust in your mouth
Gettin weary but you're runnin with the few and the proud
Sometimes you wonder why you went, You never wondered what you stayed on for
You've been home for a couple a years now buddy but you're still fightin the war
[Cadd9]Men go off to war for a hundred r[G]easons
But they [Am]all come home with the[C/B] same de[C]mons
[Cadd9]Some you can keep at b[D]ay for awhile, so[G]me will pin you[G/F#] to the [Em]floor
You've been[Cadd9] home for a couple of y[D]ears now buddy but you're[Cadd9] still fi[D]ghtin
the w[G]ar
The bedspread is frayin
Faded and tearin apart
Two strangers holdin each other in the dark
Tell me, what were you dreamin? How did you think it would end?
How many heroes are scattered out into the wind?
And all the happily ever afters turn to broken dishes and slammin doors
You've been home for a couple a years now buddy but you're still fightin the war
