This is from "Misguided Roses" track no. 9.  It's sort of a bluesy twist
on "3 AM."

            E          (464444)
I pull my boots off,
                  Asus2          (242222)
Throw my weapon on    the floor
          E         (464444)
I cry my eyes out
                     Asus2      (242222)
In my private little war
Well it seems I've been a soldier
Heaven knows I've been no saint
With my camouflage and armor
Cold heart and grease paint
To you this has no meaning
The armistice laid down
The armies all are quiet
And the guns don't make a sound, 'cause you..

E                             C#m7
   You melted the steel walls, tore down the bobwire
Bm7                   Asus2        (002100)
   filled in the trenches, demanded a ceasefire
E                         C#m7
   And now you're leavin', there's nothin' I can do
Bm7                   Asus2       (002100)
   I want you to know, you're gonna take me with you

2nd Verse
Well now feel the match on suicide in the foxhole of my mind
and way off in the distance, the air raid sirens whine
and they sing your song of rescue, to my tattered worn out shell
you drag me to your safety, from this my front line hill


C#m                 D                            E
  The blood that was spilled in the heartache before
C#m                 Asus2          B                             E
  Left on massive scars, that I never, never could ignore to you

CHORUS(acoustic only)

Fade off playing chorus part--sing "Doot dooo doot dooo doot"
