Song: Rumours of War
Artist: Billy Bragg
Album: Don't Try This at Home
Transcribed by: Dean Malone

Here is "Rumours of War" by Billy Bragg off "Don't Try This at Home".
It is just the chords (Transcribing the violin parts would have taken me forever).
Try interchanging some Em's for G to give it an even sadder feel (If possible). ENJOY.
