Tabbed by: Alexa Maningat

This is my first tab ever. It's not exactly like the song but it gives you a general idea.

Tuning: EADGBe

Am F C x 2
Am F Em G C(/F/C)

Am               F         C
The king’s taken back the throne. 
Am           F          C
The useless seed is sown. 
Am                    F               Em
When they say they’re cutting off the phone, 
G                     C(/F/C)
i tell ‘em you’re not home. 

Am F        C
No place to hide, 
Am                     F                C
You were fighting as a soldier on their side. 
Am             F               Em
You’re still a soldier in your mind, 
G                       C(/F/C)
Though nothing’s on the line. 

Am           F             C 
You say it’s money that we need, 
Am          F              C
as if we’re only mouths to feed. 
Am        F               Em
i know no matter what you say, 
G                              C(/F/C)
There are some debts you’ll never pay.

Am              Em
Working for the church 
F                 C
while your family dies. 
Am                 Em
You take what they give you 
F               C
and you keep it inside. 
Am    Em       F              C        
Every spark of friendship and love 
will die without a home. 
Am       Em      Am            G        C(/F/C)
Hear the soldier groan, “We’ll go at it alone.”
