G D The first time it was fathers, the last time it was sons G C D And in between your husbands marched away with drums and guns G C G But you never thought to question you just went on with your lives C Am C D Dsus4 D 'Cause all they'd taught you who to be was mothers, daughters, wives
verse 1 G D You barely just remember the tears your mother shed G C D As she sat and read the paper through the lists and lists of dead G C G And the gold frame held the photograph your mother kissed each night C Am C D Dsus4 D And the door frame held the shocked and silent stranger from the fight verse 2 G D And twenty-one years later you had children of your own G C D The trumpet sounded once again and the soldier boys were gone G C G And you made their guns and drove their trucks and you tended to their wounds C Am C D Dsus4 D At night you kissed their photographs and prayed for safe returns
G D The first time it was fathers, the last time it was sons G C D And in between your husbands marched away with drums and guns G C G But you never thought to question you just went on with your lives C Am C D Dsus4 D 'Cause all they'd taught you who to be was mothers, daughters, wives
verse 3 G D And when it was all over you had to learn again G C D To be just wives and mothers though you'd done the work of men G C G So you worked to help the needy and you never trod on toes C Am C D Dsus4 D And the photo on the mantelpiece struck a happy family pose verse 4 G D But your daughters grew to women and your little boys to men G C D And you wished that you were dreaming when the call-up came again G C G But you proudly smiled and held your tears as they proudly waved good bye C Am C D Dsus4 D But the photos on the mantelpieces it always made you cry
G D The first time it was fathers, the last time it was sons G C D And in between your husbands marched away with drums and guns G C G But you never thought to question you just went on with your lives C Am C D Dsus4 D 'Cause all they'd taught you who to be was mothers, daughters, wives
Verse 5 G D And now your growing older and in time the photos fade G C D In widowhood you sit back and reflect on the parade G C G And the passing of your memories as your daughters change their lives C Am C D Dsus4 D Seeing more to their existences than just mothers, daughters, wives
G D The first time it was fathers, the last time it was sons G C D And in between your husbands marched away with drums and guns G C G But you never thought to question you just went on with your lives C Am C D Dsus4 D 'Cause all they'd taught you who to be was mothers, daughters, wives G C G And you never thought to question you just went on with your lives C Am C D Dsus4 D 'Cause all they'd taught you who to be was mothers, daughters, wives
