Song: Rumours of War
Artist: Billy Bragg
Album: Don't Try This at Home
Transcribed by: Dean Malone
Here is "Rumours of War" by Billy Bragg off "Don't Try This at Home".
It is just the chords (Transcribing the violin parts would have taken me forever).
Try interchanging some Em's for G to give it an even sadder feel (If possible). ENJOY.
Rumours of War (Billy Bragg)
There are [Am]soldiers marching on the [C]com[G]mon t[Am]oday
They were t[C]here [F]again this [C]evening
They [Am]paced up and down like sea [G]birds on the ground
[Am]Before the s[G]torm clouds ga[Am]thering
I must [Am]buy whatever tinned food is l[C]eft on [G]the [Am]shelves
They are [C]testing the [F]air raid [C]sirens
They've [Am]filled up the blood banks and [G]emptied the beds
At the [Am]hospital [G]and the [Am]asylum
I saw a [Am]man build a shelter in his [C]garden [G]tod[Am]ay
And we [C]stood there [F]idly [C]chatting
He said: [Am]"No, no I don't [G]think war will come"
Yet [Am]still he [G]carried on [Am]digging
[Am]Everything in my [C]life that [G]I [Am]love
Could be [C]swept [F]away without [C]warning
Yet the [Am]birds still sing and the [G]church bells ring
And the [Am]sun came [G]up this [Am]morning
[Am]Life goes on as it [G]did before
As the [Am]country [G]drifts slowly to [Am]war
