Brothers - Dean Brody
Recorded with Capo I, but performed live without one.
Drop D Tuning
Tabbed by: gonefishing1385 (Andrew G.) at

(Intro)  D

(Verse 1)
The house was like a tomb.
I was hiding in my room.
      G     	          	    D
As my brother made his way on down the hall.
I didn't want to say goodbye.
     	 D      	                   G
And I was trying to deny there was a war,
And that he got the call.
I watched him from my window
Walking down the drive.
Then I ran down the stairway
Through the front door and I cried

(Chorus 1)
You come back you hear?
And I let him see my tears
       D     	                   A
I said I'll give you my rookie of DiMaggio.
I'll do anything you want,
Clean your room, or wash your car.
        D           Asus4            G
I'll do anything so long as you don't go.
            D             Asus4       D
But he said, this is what brothers are for.

(Verse 2) 
Well I have my heroes,
But the one I love the most
G       	                 D
Taught me how to hunt and swing a bat.
And I wrote him every night,
I said I miss our pillow fights,
    G                             D
But lately I just wonder where you're at.
Bm                        G
Sometimes freedom makes it hard to live.
     D                                       A    
When it takes things from you that you don't want to give.

(Chorus 2)
I said you come back you hear?
I miss you being near.
D                                 A
Laugh and fish down in the maple grove
I'll do anything you want.
There must be someone I can call,
         D                Asus4            G
And just maybe they would let you come back home.
             D             Asus4       D
But he wrote, this is what brothers are for.

A     	                    G              D
I may never have to face the anger of those guns,
A               G             D
Or lie cold and wounded in my blood,
A       	   G             D
Or know the sacrifice and what it must of cost
Bm         G           A           	          
For him to love me that much.

(Verse 3)
Well, it had been two years,
And I held back my tears
       G    	          	      D
When I saw him in that wheel chair on the shore.
And as I ran and held him tight,
That's when he looked me in the eye
             Bm            F#m            G
And said I'm sorry that you have to push me home.
     	      D   	  Asus4       D
And I said hey, this is what brothers are for.
