I've known no war, and if I ever do, I won't know for sure

| |G/D

Who will be fighting whom, for the soldier's lonely tomb

[pre chorus]

Now o-pens as soon as the referee's gun starts to roar

[chorus]

I'll know no war No, I've never known war

|D G |Am C

Galbraith took his pen to break down the men of the German army defeated

|D G |Am C

On the nineteenth day of a spring day in May, Albert Speer was deleted

|G Am |Bm C

And as soon as the battle was over, I was born in victorious clover

|D Em |F G

And I've never been shot at or gassed, never tortured or stabbed

|Dm/A Dm/C |C D A |D |G |D

And I'm sure........ I'll never know war no, I'll never know war

|G |D

Oh, no no Oh no, I'll never know war

|G

And if I ever do, the glimpse will be short

|D |G

Fireball in the sky, no front-line battle cries

|C G D G |F C D A

Can be heard as the button is pushed by a soul that's been bought

[repeat chorus]

|D...

I'll know no war, no, I'll know no war

 

In an out-of-reach loft, the medals are lost

They belong to a lone broken sailor

His provinces now are the bars of the town

His songs and his poems a failure

For his grandchildren can't see the glory

And his own kids are bored with the story

But for him they'd have burned behind netting

From the brink they were grabbed

And I'm sure I'll never know war, I'll never know war

 

I've known no war, and if I ever do, I won't know for sure

Who will be fighting whom for the soldier's lonely tomb

Now opens as soon as the referee's gun starts to roar

I'll know no war

 

[interlude]

 

War . . . I've known no war,

I'll never know war, and if I ever know it, the glimpse will be short

Fireball in the sky, no front-line battle cries

Can be heard as the button is pushed by a soul that's been bought

And the armies remaining will judge without people or courts

And there's no point pretending that knowing will help us abort

I'll no know war
