Verse 1

BThere was decorated general with a Fheart of gold CmThat likened him to all Gmthe stories he told OfE past battles won and lost andB legends of old FA seasoned veteran in his own time BOn the battlefield he gained Frespect for fame CmWith many medals of bravery and Gmstripes to his name HeE grew a beard as soon as a he couBld to cover the scars on his face FAnd always urged his men on BBut on the eve of great battle wFith the infantry in dream TheCm old general tossed in his sleep Gma lesson with its meaning HEe awoke from the night toB tell what he had seen FAnd walked slowly out his tent BAll the men held tall with thFeir chests in the air CmWith the courage in their blood and tGmhe fire in their stare AndE it was a grey morning and theyB all wondered how they would fare TFill the old general told them to go home He said...

Verse 2

But the men stood fast with their guns on their shoulders Not knowing what to do with contradicting orders The general said he would do his own duty but extended it no further The men could go as they pleased But not a man moved their eyes gazed straight ahead Till one by one they stepped back and not a word was said The old general was left with his own words echoing in his head He then prepared to fight
