D Bm
Is there anybody here who'd like to change his clothes into a uniform,
G B7 G Em A7
Is there anybody here who thinks they're only serving in a raging storm.
D F#m
Is there anybody here with glory in their eyes,
D F#m
Loyal to the end, whose duty is to die,
G A
I want to see him, I want to wish him luck,
D G
I wanna shake his hand, wanna call his name,
A D
Pin a medal on the man.

Is there anybody here who'd like to wrap a flag around an early grave,
Is there anybody here who thinks they're standing taller on a battle wave.
Is there anybody here like to do his part,
Soldier to the world and a hero to his heart,
I want to see him, I want to wish him luck,
I wanna shake his hand, wanna call his name,
Pin a medal on the man.

Bm A
Is there anybody here proud of the parade,
Bm G A
Who'd like to give a cheer and show they're not afraid.
F#7 Bm
I'd like like to ask him what he's trying to defend,
E A A7
I'd like to ask him what he thinks he's gonna win.
D Bbm
Is there anybody here who thinks that following orders takes away the blame
G B7 G Em A7
Is there anybody here who'd wouldn't mind a murder by another name
D F#m
Is there anybody here whose pride is on the line,
D F#m
With the honor of the brave and the courage of the blind,
G A
I want to see him, I want to wish him luck,
D G
I wanna shake his hand, gonna call his name,
A D
Pin a medal on the man.
Medal on the man.
