Lyrics

Half Way Across The World 07:27 – TAB & LYRICS
Dm/DmF/DmG/DmF
Half way ‘cross the world mother’s hearts are breaking
Dm/DmF/DmG/DmF
As they send their little soldier boys to war
Dm/DmF/DmG/DmF
How could they not have known the path that they have taken
Dm/DmF/DmG/DmF
How could they not have known what lay in store
Dm/DmF/DmG/DmF
In a system made of lies where everything’s for profit
Dm/DmF/DmG/DmF
Nobody cares if you live or die
Dm/DmF/DmG/DmF
But when it comes down to it
Dm/DmF/DmG/DmF
Your soul is something money just can’t buy

(Chorus)
G/G/G/F|G
Home, Home, Please bring them home
G/G/G/F|G
Home, Lord won’t you please bring them Home

Dm/DmF/DmG/DmF
Half way ‘cross the world young soldier’s fall down to their knees to pray
Dm/DmF/DmG/DmF
But it don’t really matter cause God ain’t gonna hear them anyway
Dm/DmF/DmG/DmF
Do unto others and love thy neighbor that’s what they were told
Dm/DmF/DmG/DmF
They were sent to kill their brothers and their sisters all the young and old

(Chorus)
G/G/G/F|G

Dm/DmF/DmG/DmF
Half way ‘cross the world a young boys heart is racing
Dm/DmF/DmG/DmF
As he scrambles through a battlefield in Hell
Dm/DmF/DmG/DmF
He doesn’t even know it but his enemy is safe
Dm/DmF/DmG/DmF
At home in the country in which he dwells
Dm/DmF/DmG/DmF
They said he’d be a hero but ever day he watches children die
Dm/DmF/DmG/DmF
But he can’t even question the orders that started from a lie


(Chorus)
G/G/G/F|G

Half way ‘cross the world a young girl sits there crying
Dm/DmF/DmG/DmF
In the ashes that used to be her home
Dm/DmF/DmG/DmF
How could she ever know that her parents would be dying
Dm/DmF/DmG/DmF
At the hands of the soldiers of New Rome
Dm/DmF/DmG/DmF
Everybody told her that everything was gonna be alright
Dm/DmF/DmG/DmF
And Mom and Daddy held her as the mortars fell upon her home that night

(Chorus)
G/G/G/F|G

Dm/DmF/DmG/DmF
Half way ‘cross the world a young girl straps explosives to her chest
Dm/DmF/DmG/DmF
She looks around to find her little doll which she clutches to her breast
Dm/DmF/DmG/DmF
She wanders down the road to find the soldiers that killed her mom and dad
Dm/DmF/DmG/DmF
The ones who took her house her home her life and all the things she ever had

(Chorus)
G/G/G/F|G
No more dyin’ Lord won’t you please bring her home
G/G/G/F|G
No more cryin’ Lord won’t you please bring her home
