Musical hook Bm – D – Bm - D
Short Inst. A Bm

Bm
Verse 1: One last coffee ‘fore the morning light
E D
Waitin’ on the call to move up on the line
Bm
Orders comes down to storm the gates of Hell
E D
Shells are burstin’ ‘round they’re soundin’ our death knell

E D
Pre-Chorus: It’s not our war, it’s all just one big crime
Bm
Our best way of resistin’s just to stay alive

E D
Chorus: Must end this war before it kills us all
Bm
We gotta stick together, Stand Up, Stand tall


Short Inst. B Bm

Bm
Verse 2: Death is all around us and we’re so afraid
E D
Sure that soon we will be layin’ in our graves
Bm
Every thought and action is just to survive
E D
Our fight-or-flight reaction is in overdrive

E D
Pre-Chorus: It’s not our war, we didn’t choose this place
Bm
It’s just a set of coordinates on some grid map page

E D
Chorus: Must end this war before it kills us all
Bm
We gotta stay together, Stand Up, Stand Tall

We gotta stay together, Stand Up, Stand Tall

Short Inst. Bm



F#
Bridge: Back home folks are marchin’, protests in the streets
Em
Callin’ out the war as just a grand deceit
F#
Turns out that the things we want are both the same
Em
Ending all the politicians’ mad war games
F#
We gotta end these mad war games

Musical hook Bm – D – Bm – D

Long Inst. Follows verse

E D
Pre-Chorus: It’s not our war, but we can end this strife
Bm
Say “no” to all the killing and say “yes” to life

E D
Chorus: We must end war before it kills us all
Bm
We oughta come together, Stand Up, Stand Tall

E D
Pre-Chorus: It’s not our war, let’s turn from hate to love
Bm
(Well) All it takes is sayin’ we’ve all had enough

E D
Chorus: We must end war before it kills us all
Bm
We gotta come together, Stand Up, Stand Tall

We gotta come together, Stand Up, Stand Tall

Let’s all us come together, Stand Up, Stand Tall

Musical hook Bm – D – Bm – D – Bm
