Like Soldiers Do  Billy Bragg

LIKE SOLDIERS DO by Billy Bragg - Tabbed by Tcoldsteel 2009
CAPO (probably) 2nd or 3rd Fret.
Pick-up in bridge position (as usual). This tab may be better as an acoustic version anyway.
This is the VERY BASIC chord structure. All chords relative to CAPO.
Use a mixture of barred and open chords (The 'F' sounds better barred to me) and
signature runs/licks between chords to get Billy's sound.
INTRO: C
VERSE:
[C]Blues eyes fighting the [F]grey eyes fighting the [C]tears
[C]Armed to the teeth for a [F]war of words
Reaching [G]all the years
I [Am]advanced across a poppy [G]field
I [C]saw the gleam as you [F]raised your shield
[F]And love screamed down
With the [G]sun behind its [C]back[(G)]
CHORUS:
Our [C]Fathers were all [F]soldiers,
Shall [C]we be soldiers [G]too
[Am]Fighting and [G]falling[(F] like [G)]soldiers [C]do
Nothing is clear in this tactical unclear war
I can't be bothered to find out
What we are fighting for
No one can win this war of the senses
I see no reason to drop my defences
So stand fast my emotions,
Rally round my shaking heart
Our Fathers were all soldiers,
Shall we be soldiers too
Fighting and falling like soldiers do
Blue eyes fighting the grey eyes fighting the tears
Armed to the teeth for a war of words
Reaching all the years
I advanced across a poppy field
I saw the gleam as you raised your shield
And love screamed down
With the sun behind its back
I knew once again I was under attack
So stand fast my emotions,
Rally round my shaking heart
Our Fathers were all soldiers,
Shall we be soldiers too
[Am]Fighting and [G]falling[(F] like [G)]soldiers
[Am]Fighting and [G]falling[(F] like [G)]soldiers
[Am]Fighting and [G]falling[(F] like [G)]soldiers [C]do
Have fun.
