  G        A         D
Mother you saw my eyes
  G      F#        D
On the fourth of July
  G          A           D
Under a banner of roman candles
  G     A      Bm
Mother war is kind
  G        A         D
Like hell but I am fine

Brother have you gone west
Have you followed through once yet
You are still younger how dare you forget
Brother war is best
In the morning when you've had rest

Like a lost dog between houses
In the unknown open country
Line up at dawn to see who's missing
My age is a metaphor
   D                        A
It only speaks of everything before

Daughter you wear my name
Those are my eyes keep 'em raised
I may have scars but I give more than I take
Daughter war is safe
Where you are far away
Lover are you gone
My heart has taken too much on
One octave lower than thunder it drums
lover war is done
In more ways than just one

Like a lost dog between houses
In the unknown open country
Like an outlaw now standing
At the foot of infinity
The sun is wild
And just in front of me

This is the short melodic part after the chorus. Listen to see how he picks out the 
between chords.
