Rich Mans War  Steve Earle

[E]Jimmy joined the army 'cause he had no place t[B7]o go               [E]
There ain[F#m]'t nobody hirin' 'round here since all the jobs went down to Mexico
[B7]Reckoned that he'd learn himself a trade maybe see the world
[A]Move to the city some day and m[F#m]arry a black haire[B7]d girl
[A]Somebody somewhere had another plan     [E]
[A]Now he's got a rifle in his[E] hand
Rollin' into Bagdhad wonderin' how[B7] he got this far                    [C#m]
[E]Just another poor boy off to f[B7]ight a rich man's war          [E]
[E]    [A]    [E]    [B7]                        
[E]Bobby had an eagle and a flag tatto[B7]oed on his arm            [E]
Red white and blue to the bone the day he landed in Kandahar              [F#m]
[A]Left behind a pretty young wife and [F#m]a baby girl        [B7]
[A]A stack of overdue bills [F#m]and went off to save the [B7]world
[A]Been a year now and he's s[E]till there
[A]Chasin' ghosts in the thin d[E]ry air
Meanwhile back at home the finance company[B7] took his car                     [C#m]
[E]Just another poor boy off to f[B7]ight a rich man's war          [E]
[E]    [A]    [E]    [B7]                        
[C#m]When will we eve[A]r learn
[C#m]When will we eve[B7]r see
[C#m]Stand up and t[A]ake our turn
[C#m]Tellin' our[B7]selves we're free
[E]Ali was the second son of [B7]a second son        [E]
Grew up in Gaza throwin' bottles and rocks when the tanks would com[F#m]e
[A]Ain't nothin' else to do around [F#m]here just a game children play  [B7]
[A]Somethin' about livin' in [F#m]fear all your life makes you hard [B7]that way
[A]He answered when he got the cal[E]l
[A]Wrapped himself in death and he p[E]raised Allah
A fat man in a new Mercedes drove [B7]him to the door      [C#m]
[E]Just another poor boy off to f[B7]ight a rich man's wa[E]r
