Where Did We Go Wrong 06:30 – TAB & LYRICS
Em/C|D * Chorus C/Bm|Am/Em/C|D/Em/C|D 2x’s C/Bm|Am/ Em/D/C/C/C/ C|A* Em/C|D
Em/C|D
They took a young Canadian man
Em/C|D
And stuck a rifle in his hand
Em/C|D
Then sent him to Afghanistan
Em/C|D
To kill the enemy
Em/C|D
Crawling through a field of dead
Em/C|D
Bullets flying over head
Em/C|D
The sky is blue but the ground is red
Em/C|D
As the general sips his tea

(Chorus)
C/Bm|Am/Em
Where did we go wrong
C/Bm|Am/Em
We were once so strong

Em/C|D
They’ve been gone for so long now
Em/C|D
How will they ever make it home
Em/C|D
Terrified he fires his gun
Em/C|D
At anything and anyone
Em/C|D
He feels like he should cut and run
Em/C|D
But orders hold him fast
Em/C|D
In his mind he hears the screams
Em/C|D
His head is bursting at the seams
Em/C|D
Never in his wildest dreams
Em/C|D
Did he ever think he’d last
Em/C|D
At night a nightmare grips his soul
Em/C|D
Like falling down an empty hole
Em/C|D
Into the darkness black as coal
Em/C|D
For eternity
Em/C|D
They pinned a medal on his chest
Em/C|D
Because he’d done his very best
Em/C|D
Fighting for the Wild West
Em/C|D
Part of history
Em/C|D
The sent him to the Middle East
Em/C|D
To wield the sword and slay the beast
Em/C|D
While the government declared a feast
Em/C|D
From safe within their home
Em/C|D
The people did not ask for war
Em/C|D
But our government is just a whore
Em/C|D
They’d sell us all for a dollar more
Em/C|D
Just to decorate new Rome
