Short Memories Songtext

They took their kids in their teenage years
D G
Fitted them out with combat gear,
D A Bm G
Filled their hearts with mortal fear and sent them away
D A
Some came home their pants in creases
D G
Some came home in bits and pieces
D A G D
The president made a lot of speeches and went fishing for the day

D A D G
'Cause they have short memories, they forget it all so quickly
D A Bm G
They have short memories, now it's gone
D A D G
They have short memories, it disappears just like quicksilver
D A G D
They have short memories, now it's gone

My daddy was in Nicosea, Egypt and North Korea
He came back to a good career, shovelling coal
I was just the village lout
I never got my finger out
I never wanted for anything still I broke and entered and stole

[bridge]
Em
You can't stop a train or catch the rain drops
D A G
As they come falling
Em
Sure there'll be another war
D A
Sure as sure the call-up will come calling

D A
They took their kids in their teenage years
D G
Gave them a God that they could fear
D A Bm G
Said they could kill but not drink beer
Bm G
And sent them away
D A
Some came home in a body bag
D G
Some came home wrapped in a flag
D A G D
And on each toe there hung a tag saying there'll be more someday

[repeat first chorus]
G Em D
...now it's gone, now it's gone, now it's gone
