intro =  verse (first chords Em and D guitar only)


Em D
   He's dead on the lawn
Em D      G
   of the house that he owned
Em D                   Em   D   G
   what will they say about him?
Em D
   he had medals
Em D      G
   he was in the war
Em D                   Em   D   G
   what will they say about him?


instrumental =  verse


   He had folks in Houston
   but he moved out west
   what will they say about him?
   the Mexican neighbors
   and women stand crying
   wonder what he was involved in


instrumental =  verse

Always  ask  me,  but I don't know    anymore
always  ask  me,  but I don't care    anymore


   He was the violent kind
   he saved me once or twice
   what should I say about it?
   I tried so hard
   but I just said "No!"
   and what should I say about him? about him?


instrumental =  verse


Always ask me, but I don't know anymore
always ask me, but I don't care anymore
Always ask me, but I don't know anymore
always ask me, but I don't care anymore
