VERSE

G                          Em
What can you see from your window?
G                         Em
I can't see anything from mine.
G                        Em
Flags on the side of the highway
    C/G                        G      D
and scripture on grocery store signs.
G                      Em
Maybe eighteen was too early.
      G                  Em
Maybe thirty or forty is too.
    G                           Em
Did you get your chance to make peace with the man
          C/G                      G    D
before he sent down his angels for you?

CHORUS

Em        D          G
Mamas and grandmamas love you
       Em              D           G  G/F#
'cause that's all they know how to do.
Em                       Bm
You never planned on the bombs in the sand
   C            Cm        G        
or sleeping in your dress blues.

VERSE

     G                           Em
Your wife said this all would be funny
     G                       Em
when you came back home in a week.
      G                        Em 
You'd turn twenty-two and we'd celebrate you
     C/G                  G      D
in a bar or a tent by the creek.
     G                     Em
Your baby would just about be here.
     G                       Em
Your very last tour would be up
    G                              Em
but you won't be back. They're all dressing in black
         C/G                    G     D
drinking sweet tea in styrofoam cups.

CHORUS

Em        D          G
Mamas and grandmamas love you
Em       D            G  G/F#
American boys hate to lose.
Em                       Bm          
You never planned on the bombs in the sand
   C            Cm        G
or sleeping in your dress blues.

VERSE

        G                       Em
Now the high school gymnasium's ready,
        G                      Em
full of flowers and old legionnaires.
G                   Em
Nobody showed up to protest,
C/G              G     D
just sniffle and stare.
            G                           Em
But there's red, white, and blue in the rafters
            G                       Em
and there's silent old men from the corps.
G                           Em
What did they say when they shipped you away
        C/G                   G   D
to give all in some god awful war

CHORUS

Em     D        G
Nobody here can forget you.
    Em             D         G  G/F#
You showed us what we had to lose.
Em                       Bm
You never planned on the bombs in the sand
   C            Cm        G
or sleeping in your dress blues.

Em                       Bm
You never planned on the bombs in the sand
   C            Cm        G
or sleeping in your dress blues.

Em                       Bm
You never planned on the bombs in the sand
   C            Cm        G    
or sleeping in your dress blues.
