[Verse 1]

 F C 
Cigarettes and a bottle of beer, this poem that I wrote for you
            F C  
This black stone and these hard tears are all I got left now of you
 Am Am7/G C 
I remember you in your Marine uniform laughing, laughing at your ship out party
       Am7 Am7/G C                 
I read Robert McNamara says he's sorry


[Verse 2]

             F C 
Your high boots and striped t-shirt, ah, Billy you looked so bad
       F Fsus2 C 
Yeah you and your rock and roll band, you were the best thing this shit town ever had
 Am7 Am7/G C 
Now the men that put you here eat with their families in rich dining halls
     Am7 Am7/G C F C 
And apology and forgiveness got no place here at all, here at the wall


[Verse 3]

          F Fmaj7 C 
Well I'm sorry I missed you last year, I couldn't find no one to drive me
          F Fmaj7 C                              
If your eyes could cut through that black stone, tell me would they recognize me
 Am Am7/G C 
For the living time it must be served as the day goes on
 Am7 Am7/G C          
Cigarettes and a bottle of beer, skin on black stone


[Verse 4]

                F C 
On the ground dog tags and wreaths of flowers, with the ribbons red as the blood
 F C                     
Red as the blood you spilled in the Central Highlands mud
             Am7 Am7/G C 
Limousines rush down Pennsylvania Avenue, rustling the leaves as they fall
 Am7 Am/G C Fsus2 C 
And apology and forgiveness got no place here at all, here at the wall

 F C F C Am Am7/G C Am Am7/G C   (until fade out)
