WAR! HUH! what is it good...absolutely NOTHING! Repeat the above bit x4 Em War - I despise Cos it means destruction of anything alive War means tears In a thousand mothers eyes When their sons go off fighting and lose their lives I said WAR!Em HUH!F WHAT FIS IT GOODEm FOR? (abFsolutely) NOTHING! (War!)F WAR!Em HUH!F WHAT FIS IT GOODEm FOR? (abFsolutely) NOTHING! (Good Fgod!) WAR!Em HUH!F WHAT FIS IT GOODEm FOR? (abFsolutely) NOTHING! F Em War has shattered many young man's dreams Playing the same old (???????????????) Life is too short and precious to spend fighting War don't bring life, it can only take it away I said WAR!Em HUH!F WHAT FIS IT GOODEm FOR? (say it aFgain) NOTHING! (what?) F WAR!Em HUH!F WHAT FIS IT GOODEm FOR? (abFsolutely) NOTHING! F WAR!Em HUH!F WHAT FIS IT GOODEm FOR? (abFsolutely) NOTHING! F

I Emknow we must fight to keep our freedom But I know there's got to be a better way then vocally ad lib it with various echoed 'NO!'s and 'Woah-oh's and stuff for a bit then: N.C.WARWARWARWARWARWARWARWARWARWARWARWARWARWARWARWARWARWARWARWAR... etc. During the verses - the Ebm changes slightly like, and I can't say for sure what to here are the chords it might be, it could be all of them - but it makes playing the verses more interesting anyway!
