Intro 
A F#m D A E 

Verse 
     A                  F#m 
Dear brother, you would not believe 
           D                        A       E 
What these killing fields, force my eyes to see 

       A                    F#m 
From a snipers post, with a trembling hand 
      D                A       E 
Put a bullet in.....to another man 

          A                     F#m 
Watch the crimson bloom, on his uniform 
       D                       A        E 
Billow like a cloud, ‘till his life was gone 

G D A The killers stain heavy on me now E A Fix my bayonet for the final hour D A When that whistle blows, its mournful sound E D Will deliver me to the hungry mouth F G A Of the howling hounds of hell
Bridge A F#m D A E Verse A F#m When the snowball comes, the recruitment drive D A E Don’t let your heart swell up, with unfounded pride A F#m For a distant King, you’d be fighting for D A E Lay you down to waste, on a distant shore
G D A The killers stain heavy on me now E A Fix my bayonet for the final hour D A When that whistle blows, its mournful sound E D Will deliver me to the hungry mouth F G A Of the howling hounds of hell
Coda - repeat until fade A F#m D A E
