(Intro)
C       F    
C       F  
 
VERSE:
   C
Remember the times when we were kids
         F
Playing war games in your yard
 C
Everybody had to be a hero
     F
aAnd get one in the heart
 G
nNight would fall and we’d call a truce
    Am      F           Fstyle='font-size:1px;color:#ffffff;'>
And all go homestyle='font-size:1px;color:#ffffff;'>
 
 
(Verse 1)
  C
Years went by we were average guys
         F
Playing life by the rule of thumb
        C
'Til a man came on the tv
               F
Talking ’bout war like he wanted one
         G
He said “everybody line up backs to the wall 
           Am      F           Fstyle='font-size:1px;color:#ffffff;'>
'Til your numbers called”
 
 
(Chorus)
                          C F
You’ve gotta go and be a he-ro
 C
Got a new game for all you boys
      F
It's war without a choice
           Am Bb
Compulsory he-ro
                      C        F      C       F
Just try and make it home
 
 
(Verse 2)
  C
Grandpa heard the call to all
       F
For a war to end all wars
 
And your dad went off to do his bit
        F
And he had to go one more
        G
You’ve really ain't got no say in it
               Am
You've got to fight
                F         F
And that's the law
 
 
(Chorus)
                          C F
You’ve gotta go and be a he-ro
 C
They made a law that you had to go and fight
 F
One more crazy war
           Am Bb
Compulsory he-ro
                      C
Just try and make it home
 
 
(Bridge)
   Am                  G
So all that had to be heroes
      F                C
Went off to do their chores
 Eb
None of them really wouldn’t of known
    Cm
How far a bloody war goes 
        Ab        Fm      C      F      C      F
They’re dying to make it home
 
 
(Verse 3)
 C
Then I think back on all those times
         F
Playing war games in your yard
 C
Everybody had to be a hero
      F
Back then that wasn’t hard
 G
Night would fall on the battle zone
             Am      F            F
And we could all go home
 
 
(Chorus)
                          C  F
You’ve had to go and be a he-ro
      C
They made a law that you had to go and fight
 F
One more crazy war
           Am Bb  Bb  Bb
Compulsory he-ro
                      C       C       C
Just try and make it home
 Bb                   C       C       C
Just try and make it home
         Bb                   Am     F      D     Am
Oh, and who is gonna make it home
