Another Man's Cause  Levellers

Another Man's Cause
By the Levellers - From the album "Levelling the Land"

This is a great song. Simple to play (like most of the Leveller's stuff),
but is enhanced by adding rythmic hammer-ons and pull-offs in the latter
stages. Listen to the song and get into it...
[Am] [G] [F] [G]  
[Am] [G] [F] [G]  
Verse 1
[Am]Gunshots shatter in the peace of night
It's [G]just another firefight
For the [F]people of this little [G]town
But [Am]for the dying soldier
Well he's [G]feeling ten years older
As he's [F]lying face down on the [G]ground
[Am]All the words that are in his head
And [G]all the words that his mother said
As [F]she would put him to bed back [G]home
[C]Your Daddy when he [G]died in the [Am]Falklands
[C]Fighting [G]for a[Am]nother man's cause
And your [C]brother he was [G]killed in the [Am]last war
And your [C]mother, well she's [G]lying home [Am]alone
Verse Two
[G] [F] [G]  
[Am] [G] [F] [G]  
[Am]Everyday she sees your face
On the [G]picture on the fireplace
With your [F]brother as he was leaving [G]school
Then a [Am]day came five years ago
You said [G]"Mother, I need to know"
And you [F]spoke the words your brother spoke be[G]fore
[Am]"I know the things my Daddy done
And I've [G]seen the medals that he's won
And I [F]know this is what he would have [G]wanted [G]for [Am]me
[G] [Am]  
[F]Now she [G]wonders at it [Am]all[G]
[F]Just in whose [G]name, do these [Am]brave young heros [G]fall
And [F]how many [G]more are gonna [Am]answer that [G]call
They're gonna [F]fight and [G]die in a[Am]nother country's [G]war
They're gonna [F]die for a re[G]ligion didn't be[Am]lieve in at [G]all
They're gonna [F]die in a [G]place they should [Am]never been at all
Oh, [Am]never been at all
Lose yourself in the cresendo bit
C G Am Am (Repeat six times)
