[Dm]I am just an aging drummer-boy, and in the [C]wars I used to play
And I've [Bb]called a tune to many a torture [Dm]session.
[Dm]Now they say I am a war criminal, and I'm a-[C]fading away.
[Bb]Father, please hear my confession.
I have [G]legalized robbery and [D]called it belief
I have [G]run with the money, I have [D]hid like a thief
I have [G]rewritten history with my [D]armies and my crooks
[D]Invented [C]memories, [Am] I did [D]burn all the books
And I can [Dm]still hear his laughter, and I can [C]still hear his [Em]song
[Emsus2] The man's too [Em]big, the man's too [D]strong[C] [D] [C]
C Cm G Gm etc.
For chords, play the Dm, D, C, Em, Am and G as open. Play the Bb in 1st
position. I play the Emsus2, Gm and Cm as:
[Emsus2] [Gm] [Cm]
