No Forgotten Man Solas [CAPO ON 3RD FRET] G From the woods of California to the banks of Ohio C G I've always worked each day God sent as best I'm able G While both me and the crops they failed, those damn wolves came to my door C G I just couldn't put no food upon the table D C Time to step up, boy, and be a man. G So they stuck you 'neath a helmet and put a shovel in your hand C G Sayin' it's time to step up, boy, your family needs ya' G And though we struggled hard to save, they say our money turned no good C G And that there's not gonna' be enough to feed ya' D C And they say it never happened 'cause they can. C G So they rob us of our livin', kick us down with shiny shoes C G God knows we've paid for our dreamin' C G Em And now they're trying to tell us that they'll own us 'till the end D C Someone better pray that luck means justice G G//// G//// G//// 'Cause I'll be no forgotten man. G So they stuck me 'neath a helmet, put a gun into my hand C G Saying time to step up, boy, your country needs ya'.
