Bon Jovi - Lower The Flag: chords

Am         C        F        C
Word just came from upstate Joe
Am          C    F    C
Lower the flag again
Am              C                F  C
This time it's Dayton, southwest Ohio
      Am             C            F   C
Last night El Paso, Texas counted 22 dead

Am                  C             F               C
Soon the brass will offer up their thoughts and prayers
Am                 C                F   C
Soon there'll be protests in the street
        Am         C
And the media from out of town
       F              C
Will chew it up and spit it out

     Am              C
Then move on to the next one
   F             C
Before we even grieve
            Am             C
Yeah, then move on to the next one
   G
Before we even grieve

Chorus:
              F       C          Am             C
Some say we start to die on the day that we're born
       F                           C
But no one wants to live life on their knees
           F       C          Am             C
Maybe we start to die on the day that we're born
    Am             G               C
But we deserve to live life in between

A husband kissed the cross that bears his Margie's name
And promises he'll see her once again
Won't see her children grow
Won't see their love grow old

Last night their dream became a nightmare
And their nightmare has no end
Last night their dream became a nightmare
And their nightmare has no end

Chorus

               F          C
These days it's hard to sleep
           Am       C
When I lay my head down
                F         C
What if it was your loved one
      G
Laying on the ground
           F        C
I'm left to think about
       Am      C
What if, what now?
         F         C
Dear God I wanna pray
               F       C
But tonight I have my doubts
         F     C          G
When I think about those families now

Am                           G/B
If there's something we can talk about,
let's talk about it
C                            F
If there's something we can figure out,
let's figure it out
Am                           G/B
If there's something we can talk about,
let's talk about it
C                            F
If there's something we can figure out,
let's figure it out - x7

Some say we start to die on the day that we're born
But no one wants to live life on their knees
Maybe we start to die on the day that we're born
You believe what you want to believe
But we deserve to live life in-between

Word just came from upstate Joe
Lower the flag again
