Goin' To War

F C F Whoa, whoa, we're goin' to war.
F C Whoa, we're goin' to go to war.
Bb Gm F Dm We've got no choice but to send our girls and boys.
F Bb F So pack your bags, we're goin' to war.
Bb F Hey, George, you're sending us to war.
C F You say they need us to point them toward
Bb F Dm democracy and ever-lasting peace.
C Bb F Our shock and awe they will adore.
Bb F We are good soldiers. We obey your orders.
C F We don't think twice 'cause we trust our leaders
Bb F Dm when they say Iraq with bioweapons will attack
C Bb F unless we strike first. That's the cure.
Bb F It's only a coincidence
C F that tons of oil lies beneath their sands.
Bb F Dm We can sell oil to pay for the war.
C Bb F We'll be heroes throughout all the lands.
Bb F Hundreds of billions it will cost.
C F and tens of thousands lives will be lost.
Bb F Dm It's a small price to pay to spread freedom, I say.
C Bb F Unless, of course, we've been double-crossed.
Bb F The Middle East will soon see.
C F Democracy's not always what it seems.
Bb F Dm 'Cause money corrodes as nearby bombs explode.
C Bb F Just like in most any regime.
Bb F We now all know we have all been misled
C F The only ones who don't care now are dead.
Bb F Dm the rest of us are here to make it crystal clear
C Bb F We remember the ones who said,
G D G Whoa, whoa, we've gone to war.
G D We'll show George and Dick a real war.
C Am G Em We've got no choice but to impeach those Good Ol' Boys,
G C G the ones who declared we're at war.
G C G The ones who brought us to war.
G C G The ones who run this unjust war.
G C G The ones who only think of war.
G C G The ones who've never served in war.
G C G The ones who want a world war.
G C G The ones we won't let lead anymore.
G D G So pack your bags, we're goin' to war!
