Verse 
A      Bm                  A       Bm   Bm 
A man stands up before his God and country 
A          Bm              A       Bm  Bm   
Raises his right hand and takes an oath 
A             Bm            A      Bm   Bm 
Swears he has acted in the line of duty 
A            Bm                A        Bm   Bm 
And he more than anyone wants to tell the truth
