A Hero In Harlan
Recorded by Tom T. Hall
Album: Tom T. Hall Sings Miss Dixie & Tom T. (2008)

(Capo on 2, in 6/8 time)

Intro.:  | (G)  | 

A (G)grey silver casket rolls (C)off of the air-(G)plane
The Stars and the Stripes are (D)draped over the (G)lid
In-(G)side is the body of (C)our little (G)brother
They (G)say he's a soldier, but (D)he's just a (G)kid

Well, (G)we're here to take him to (C)Harlan Ken-(G)tucky
Where (G)he will be buried in (D)our family (G)plot
We (G)think of that day when he (C)went in the (G)army
Ex-(G)pecting a much better (D)job than he got (G)

(Chorus)
(C)He'll be a hero in (G)Harlan like (D)all the young soldiers be-(G)fore
(C)He's not the first and he (G)won't be the (Em)last to (G)lay down his (D)life in a (G)war

Some-(G)where in the records, he'll (C)just be a (G)number
An-(G)other young man lyin' (D)under a (G)sheet
We're (G)takin' him home to rest (C)high on a (G)hillside
And (G)he'll be a hero in (D)Harlan this (G)week

(Chorus)
(C)He'll be a hero in (G)Harlan like (D)all the young soldiers be-(G)fore
(C)He's not the first and he (G)won't be the (Em)last to (G)lay down his (D)life in a (G)war / / / / / |

Inst.:  | (A) / / / / / | (A) / / / / / | (A) --- 

Now (A)world is a big place and (D)maybe needs (A)saving
But (A)what can a country boy (E)do with a (A)gun
He (A)used to win teddy bears (D)down at the fair-(A)grounds
When (A)livin' was easy and (E)shootin' was (A)fun

Well, they (A)fold up the Stars and the (D)Stripes for his (A)mother
And (A)gently they trade her the (E)flag for her (A)son
Well, a (A)harder exchange never (D)took place in (A)Harlan
But (A)it's not the first time, it's (E)ever been (A)done

(Chorus)
(D)He'll be a hero in (A)Harlan like (E)all the young soldiers be-(A)fore
(D)He's not the first and he (A)won't be the (F#m)last to (A)lay down his (E)life in a (A)war

(Tag)
And (D)he'll be a hero in (A)Harlan
