Five Iron Frenzy
(Reese Roper/Scott Kerr)

D A C G(X2)
D               A                             C
A banner year 1864, don't want the red man anymore,
                G              D
Can't have them taking up good land.
                              A
Give them a token flag, trade pipes and shake some hands,
C                           G
Tell them the white stripes stand for peace.
D                               A
Say if they raise red white and blue,
                               C
Blue coats will never shoot at you,
                 G
But stripes will loose their sheen,
D                            A
Black Kettle was their chief, he only wanted peace,
C                  G
Under the flag...a massacre at Sand Creek.

A               C
Wave your flag.  Salivate.
G                    D
Stirring feelings of pride and hate.
A          C                     D
A peace of cloth can't hold your faith.

G       D                F
No flag flies, no banner waves,
              C
See the empty pole above his empty grave.
G      D              F
No one knows where he lies,
       C
and no one know just why he had to die.

D G
D             A     C              G
A banner year 1868, a bitter end a twist of fate.
D                        A
Maps won't hold this melanoma,
                   C
Blurry part of Oklahoma,
             G
Where Custer shot and killed Black Kettle.

A                C
Wave your flag.  Salivate.
G                    D
Stirring feelings of pride and hate.
A          C                     D
A peace of cloth can't hold your faith.

G       D                F
No flag flies, no banner waves,
              C
See the empty pole above his empty grave.
G      D              F
No one knows where he lies,
       C
and no one know just why he had to die.

C F(X2)
G        C
A promise is a promise,
G         C
A judge of character.
A          D          A D
His banner over me is love.

G D F C (X4)
G       D                F
No flag flies, no banner waves,
              C
See the empty pole above his empty grave.
G      D              F
No one knows where he lies,
       C
and no one know just why he had to die.
G       D                F
No flag flies, no banner waves,
              C
See the empty pole above his empty grave.
G      D              F
No one knows where he lies,
       C
and no one know just why he had to die.
