The general


Cifra: Principal (violão e guitarra)
tom: Bb
Standard tuning.  Listen to the CD while trying to figure out this 

Opening Riff.
                      Bb    F                        Cm     Gm

             Eb      Bb        F

The rest of the song is the same chords, just with different strumming patterns.  Listen to the cd
to figure them out.  The only other part is this:


The notes on this tab are correct, but I know, its really confusing, 
so I'll be making some changes soon.


Bb                                 F
There was decorated general with a heart of gold 
Cm                      Gm
That likened him to all the stories he told 
  Eb                            Bb
Of past battles won and lost and legends of old 
A seasoned veteran in his own time 
Bb                           F
On the battlefield he gained respect for fame 
Cm                              Gm
With many medals of bravery and stripes to his name 
  Eb                               Bb
He grew a beard as soon as a he could to cover the scars on his face 
And always urged his men on 
 Bb                             F
But on the eve of great battle with the infantry in dream 
   Cm                               Gm
The old general tossed in his sleep a lesson with its meaning 
 Eb                       Bb
He awoke from the night to tell what he had seen 
And walked slowly out his tent 
Bb                           F
All the men held tall with their chests in the air 
Cm                                   Gm
With the courage in their blood and the fire in their stare 
   Eb                             Bb
And it was a grey morning and they all wondered how they would fare 
Till the old general told them to go home 
He said... 
 Bb     F         Cm     Gm          Eb
I have seen the others and i have discovered 
            Bb                  F
That this fight is not worth fighting 
 Bb     F             Cm        Gm          Eb
And i've seen their mothers and i will no other 
        Bb             F
To follow me where i'm going, so... 
 Bb     F             Cm
Take a shower and shine your shoes 
 Gm               Eb
You got no time to lose 
          Bb                         F
You are young men you must be living 
                        Bb   F   Cm  Gm   Eb   Bb  F
Go now you are forgiven 

But the men stood fast with their guns on their shoulders 
Not knowing what to do with contradicting orders 
The general said he would do his own duty but extended it no further 
The men could go as they pleased 
But not a man moved their eyes gazed straight ahead 
Till one by one they stepped back and not a word was said 
The old general was left with his own words echoing in his head 
He then prepared to fight 
Go now you are forgiven x10 
Bb   F   Cm  Gm   Eb   Bb  F
