Still Fighting The War
Slaid Cleaves
Still Fighting The War
2013

G

C                 G
Hard times coming home now 
C                           G
Can't get your feet on the ground 
C                         G       G/F#       Em    D
Thoughts and issues and no one wants you around 
C                      G                       Am   G/B         C
Barely sleepin and you can't get through to the   VA    on the phone 
C                     G              G/F#       Em    
No one is hiring and no one wants to give you a loan 
 C                  D               G            G/F#       Em          
And everyone else is carryin on just like they've always done before 
            C                   D                          C         
You've been home for a couple a years now buddy but you're 
     D             G
Still fighting the war 

Flashback to Falluja 
Lost another best friend 
Three tours of duty and you're wondering when it's all gonna end 
Bodies broken and bones shattered 
Blood and dust in your mouth 
Gettin weary but you're runnin with the few and the proud 
Sometimes you wonder why you went, You never wondered what you stayed on for
You've been home for a couple a years now buddy but you're 
Still fighting the war

C                                G
Men go off to war for a hundred reasons
         Am                    G/B     C
But they all come home with the same demons 
C                     D                        G              G/F#    Em
Some you can keep at bay for awhile, some will pin you to the floor
             C                    D                        C        
You've been home for a couple of years now buddy but you're 
     D              G
Still fighting the war 

The bedspread is frayin
Faded and tearin apart 
Two strangers holdin each other in the dark 
Tell me, what were you dreamin? How did you think it would end?
How many heroes are scattered out into the wind?
And all the happily ever afters turn to broken dishes and slammin doors
You've  been home for a couple a years now buddy but you're still fighting the war

3rd line "Thoughts and issues..." Should be, "Got some issues..."
