Like a Soldier  Johnny Cash

Written by Johnny Cash
Published by Song of Cash Inc. ASCAP
[G]  
With the twi[G]light colors falling
And the evening laying shadows
Hidden memories come stealing from my min[D]d
As I feel my own heart beating out
The simple joy of living
I wonder how I ever was that ki[G]nd
But the wild road I was rambling
Was always out there calling
And they said a hundred times I should have di[D7]ed
Then you reached down and touched me
And lifted me up with you
So, I believe they were roads that I was meant to ri[G]de
| C D G
|I'm like a soldier getting over the war
| C D7 G
|Like a young man getting over his crazy days
| C D7 Em
|Like a bandit getting over his lawless ways
|C D7 G
|I don't have to do that any more
| C D7 G
|I'm like a soldier getting over the war
There were nights I don't remember
And there's pain that I've forgotten
Other things I choose not to recall
There are faces that come to me
In my darkest secret memory
Faces that I wish would not come back at all
But in my dreams parade of lovers
From the other times and places
There's not one that matters now, no matter who
I'm just thankful for the journey
And that I've survived the battles
And that my spoils of victory are you
| C D G
|I'm like a soldier getting over the war
| C D7 G
|Like a young man getting over his crazy days
| C D7 Em
|Like a bandit getting over his lawless ways
|C D7 G
|Every day gets better than before
| C D7 G
|I'm like a soldier getting over the war
