I have seen

days unfold, and  
Em 
towers 
 
 
D/F# 
fall and  
G 
planes

So I became a

And then they sent me  
D/F#

Asus4 
Mama the things we’ve  
A

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…

Chorus:
 
Under the

Mama, can I  
D/F#

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

I wanna go  
Asus4 
home.

Under the
