How To Play

If the Fsus4 is too hard for you, just play a B5 power chord
Fsus4 113311

Alternatively, Tune down your low E to D(drop D)
Transpose this down 3 steps and capo up to wherever works for you
So the Verse becomes D  Dsus4 or D A Dsus4

Play this progression instead, it gives you a nice step down
 
e--5---5--5
b--5---5--5
g--7---7--7
D--7---7--7
A--5---0--5
D------0--5
 
 
INTRO

VERSE
F            C         Fsus4
All day long he was fighting for you
        F                    Fsus4
And he didn't even know your name
F            C     Fsus4
Young men come and young men go
     F                      Fsus4
But life goes on just the same
 
CHORUS
                 C
And I don't know why
                Dm7
Why do we keep holding on
              C
I don't know why
                 Dm7
Pretending to be oh so strong
    C
Oh why
                           Dm7
Is there something I don't know
                   C                  Dm7
Or something very wrong, with you and me
        F   Fsus4
Or maybe
            F           Fsus4    F                    Fsus4
That's the way it is,         there's nothing I can do,
                 F         Fsus4
That's just the way it is.
 
VERSE
F            C         Fsus4
They've been waiting for word to come down
              F                       Fsus4
They've been waiting for you night and day
F          C       Fsus4
They won't wait any longer for you
     F                 Fsus4
It may already be too late
 
CHORUS
                 C
And I don't know why
                Dm7
Why do we keep holding on
              C
I don't know why
                 Dm7
Pretending to be oh so strong
    C
Oh why
                           Dm7
Is there something I don't know
                   C                  Dm7
Or something very wrong, with you and me
        F  Fsus4
Or maybe
            F           Fsus4    F    Fsus4
That's the way it is,         
                 F         Fsus4
That's just the way it is.
 
BRIDGE
Gm                     D#
You see the dying, you feel the pain
Bb                   Cm7
What have you got to say
Gm                       D#
If we agree that we can disagree
          Bb                Cm7
We could stop all of this today
 
VERSE
F                        Fsus4
It's been your life for as long as you can remember
         F             Fsus4
But you cannot fight no more
F                         Fsus4
You must want to look your son in the eyes
          F                      Fsus4
When he asks you what you did it for
F             C         Fsus4
Cause all day long he was fighting for you
        F                     Fsus4
And he didn't even know your name
F             C       Fsus4
Young men come and young men go
     F                    Fsus4
But life goes on just the same
 
CHORUS
                 C
And I don't know why
                Dm7
Why do we keep holding on
              C
I don't know why
                 Dm7
Pretending to be oh so strong
    C
Oh why
                           Dm7
Is there something I don't know
                   C                  Dm7
Or something very wrong, with you and me
       F        Fsus4

           F                     Fsus4    F                    Fsus4
That's the way it is,  Thats the way       there's nothing I can do,
                 F         Fsus4
That's just the way it is.
