[Intro]

[A] [E] [F#m] [Em] [D]

[Verse 1]

The [A]old colonel was a veteran

Each [F#m]night he’d take his [Em]medicine

And [D]stay up watchin’ Letterman

Trying to forget

The [A]things he [E]saw when he was young

The [F#m]carnage and the sou[Em]nd of guns

He [D]kept his pain from everyone

With the ink inside his pen

[Chorus]

[A]The colonel kept a journal of his [E]troubles and regrets

His [F#m]battles were internal, raging [Em]wars inside his head

[D]‘Til the end, he was a soldier

‘Cause the fight was never over

[A]The colonel kept a journal and he [E]left it in a box

[F#m]Buried in the basement under[Em]neath some dirty socks

’Til [D]the end, he was a soldier

‘Cause the fight was never over

[Verse 2]

And the [A]day he died, his [E]kids flew in

Took some [Em]time just to remem[Em]ber him

They [D]cleaned up his old medicine

As everybody wept

They were [A]packing up the [E]cellar

When they [F#m]found his diary, [Em]read it and

[D]Couldn’t believe the things he said

With the ink inside his pen

[Chorus]

The [A]colonel kept a journal of his [E]troubles and regrets

His [F#m]battles were internal, raging [Em]wars inside his head

[D]‘Til the end, he was a soldier

‘Cause the fight was never over

[A]The colonel kept a journal and he [E]left it in a box

[F#m]Buried in the basement under[Em]neath some dirty socks

’Til [D]the end, he was a soldier

‘Cause the fight was never over

[Bridge]


[A]Mmmm-[E]mmm [F#m]mm mm

[Dmaj7]Mmmm-[D]mmm mm mm

[Verse 3]

The [A]old colonel was a veteran

My [F#m]granddad, and a [Em]gentleman

[D]I’ll always remember him

Oh, I swear I won’t forget

The [A]things he saw when he was young

The [F#m7]carnage and the sound of guns

And the [D]pain he kept from everyone

With the ink inside his pen

[Chorus]

[A]The colonel kept a journal of his [E]troubles and regrets

His [F#m]battles were internal, raging [Em]wars inside his head

[Dmaj7]‘Til the end, he was a soldier

‘Cause the [D]fight was never over

[A]The colonel kept a journal and he [E]left it in a box

[F#m]Buried in the basement under[Em]neath some dirty socks

’Til [D]the end, he was a soldier

‘Cause the fight was never over

[Outro]

[A]Mmmm-[E]mmm [F#m]mm [Em]mmm

[Dmaj7]Mmmm-mmm [D]mm
