G 
D/F# 
G 

 
If I were to  
D/F# 
tell you  
G 
something, I  
Asus4 
haven’t till to
A 
day
 
I would say that  
D/F# 
I’m a different  
G 
person than the one they  
Asus4 
sent 
 
away
A 
 
I have seen  
Bm 
fashion and  
G 
fame, 
 
 
A 
disap
A/G 
pear to be dis
D/F# 
covered 
 
again
 
I have seen  
G 
ordinary 
 
 
D/F# 
days unfold, and  
Em 
towers 
 
 
D/F# 
fall and  
G 
planes 
 
ex
Asus4 
plode
A 

 
So I became a  
D/F# 
sol
G 
dier, 
 
 
Asus4 
09-2k

And then they sent me  
D/F# 
o—-
G 
ver, oh  
Asus4 
Mama the things we’ve  
A 
done
 
I have seen  
Bm 
pleasure in  
G 
pain, From  
A 
either 
 
 
A/G 
side of this  
D/F# 
war 
 
machine
 
I’ve seen the  
G 
horror in a  
D/F# 
mother’s eyes, When her  
Em 
baby 
 
 
D/F# 
falls and  
G 
angels 
 
 
Asus4 
rise…
A 

Chorus:
 
Under the  
G 
flag, we got here, Under the  
D/F# 
flag, we fought here,
 
under the  
Em 
flag, I’m  
D/F# 
not sure,  
G 
I wanna go  
Asus4 
home.
A 
 
Under the  
G 
sun, we let fly, Bullets and  
D/F# 
prayers, that God won’t buy
Em 
Underneath the  
A7-9 
star spangled  
Bm 
ban
G 
ner,
 
Under the  
D/F# 
Rockets red glare, the bombs  
Asus4 
bursting in  
A 
air

D/F# 
G 
D/F# 
G 

 
Mama, can I  
D/F# 
tell you  
G 
something? 
 
 
Asus4 
Mama, can I con
A 
fess?
 
Even though I  
D/F# 
volunteered,
G 
 
 
Asus4 
didn’t sign up for  
A 
this!
 
I have felt  
Bm 
triumph and  
G 
shame, 
 
 
A 
To get these  
A/G 
oilfields 
 
 
D/F# 
running 
 
again
G 
So Halliburton and  
D/F# 
Chevron, Could  
Em 
fill their  
D/F# 
pipes and  
G 
burst their  
Asus4 
bombs…
A 

Chorus:
 
Under the  
G 
flag, we got here, Under the  
D/F# 
flag, we fought here,
 
under the  
Em 
flag, I’m  
D/F# 
not sure,  
G 
I wanna go  
Asus4 
home.
A 
 
Under the  
G 
sun, we let fly, Bullets and  
D/F# 
tears, that God won’t dry
Em 
Underneath the  
A7-9 
star spangled  
Bm 
ban
G 
ner,
 
Under the  
D/F# 
Rockets red glare, the bombs  
Asus4 
bursting in  
A 
air

D/F#

F# 
And we all stand to
Bm 
gether, 
 
 
Bm/A 
E/G# 
We’re brothers to the  
A 
bone,
F# 
One way or the  
Bm 
other,
Bm/A 
 
G 
Brothers we’ll get home…
A 

 
Under the  
G

D/F# 
flag, we fought here,
 
under the  
Em 
flag, I’m  
D/F# 
not sure,

I wanna go  
Asus4 
home.
A 
 
Under the  
G
