Capo 2

D                               A               D 
Jimmy joined the army Ďcause he had no place to go
      D                                                               Em
There ainít nobody hiriní Ďround here since all the jobs went down to Mexico
G                                                      A
Reckoned that heíd learn himself a trade maybe see the world
G                                    A
Move to the city someday and marry a black haired girl
G                       D          
Somebody somewhere had another plan
G                    D
Now heís got a rifle in his hand
D                    A                         Bm   G
Rolliní into Baghdad wonderiní how he got this far
D                     A                         D     
Just another poor boy off to fight a rich manís war

Bobby had an eagle and a flag tattooed on his arm
Red white and blue to the bone when he landed in Kandahar
Left behind a pretty young wife and a baby girl
A stack of overdue bills and went off to save the world
Been a year now and heís still there
Chasiní ghosts in the thin dry air
Meanwhile back at home the finance company took his car
Just another poor boy off to fight a rich manís war

Bm           G
When will we ever learn
D            A
When will we ever see
Bm              G
We stand up and take our turn
D              A
And telliní ourselves weíre free

Ali was the second son of a second son
Grew up in Gaza throwing bottles and rocks when the tanks would come
Ainít nothiní else to do around here just a game children play
Somethiní Ďbout liviní in fear all your life makes you hard that way
He answered when he got the call
Wrapped himself in death and praised Allah
A fat man in a new Mercedes drove him to the door
Just another poor boy off to fight a rich manís war
