I got your letter today and I miss you all so much here

Am C/g Am C/g G7

I can't wait to see you all and I'm counting the days dear

F C/g F

I still believe that there's gold at the end of the world

C/g F/g C/g F/g C/g G7 C/g

And I'll come home to Illinois on the day after tomorrow

C/g F/g C/g F/g C/g G7

It is so hard and it's cold here and I'm tired of taking orders

Am C/g

And I miss old Rockford town

Am C/g G7

up by the Winconsin border

F C/g

What I miss you won't believe,

F

shoveling snow and raking leaves

C/g F/g C/g F/g

And my plane will touch down

C/g G7 C/g F/g C/g F/g

on the day after tomorrow

C/g F/g C/g

I close my eyes every night

F/g C/g G7 G7

and I dream that I can hold you

Am C/g

They fill us full of lies everyone buys

Am C/g G7

about what it means to be a soldier

F C/g

I still don't know how I'm supposed to feel

F

about all the blood that's been spilled

C/g F/g C/g

Will God on his throne get me back home

F/g C/g G7 C/g F/g C/g F/g

on the day after tomorrow?

C/g F/g C/g

You can't deny the other side

F/g C/g G7

don't want to die anymore than we do

Am C/g

What I'm trying to say is don't they pray

Am C/g G7

to the same God that we do?

F C/g

And tell me how does God choose

F

whose prayers does he refuse?

C/g F/g C/g

Who turns the wheel, who throws the dice

F/g C/g G7 C/g F/g C/g F/g

on the day after tomo - rrow?

| F | F | C/g | C/g | F | F | C/g | G7 |

C/g F/g C/g F/g C/g G7

I am not fighting for justice, I am not fighting for freedom

Am C/g Am C/g G7

I am fighting for my life and another day in the world here

F C/g

I just do what I've been told,

F

we're just the gravel on the road

C/g F/g C/g

And only the lucky ones come home

F/g C/g G7 C/g F/g C/g F/g

on the day after tomorrow

C/g F/g C/g

And the summer it too will fade

F/g C/g G7

and with it brings the winter's frost dear

Am C/g

And I know we too are made of

Am C/g G7

all the things that we have lost here

F C/g F

I'll be twenty one today, I've been saving all my pay

C/g F/g C/g

And my plane will touch down

F/g C/g G7 C/g F/g C/g F/g

on the day after tomorrow
