   I'm just and ageing drummer boy
              C
   And in the wars I used to play
            Bb
   And I've called the tune
                     Dm
   To many a torture session
            Dm
   Now they say I am a war criminal
           C
   And I'm fading away
   Bb                      Dm
   Father please her my confession

          G
   I have legalised robbery
   D
   Called it a belief
          G
   I have run with the money
       D
   And hid like a thief
          G
   I have re-written history
           D
   With my armies and my crooks
   D        C        Am7
   Invented memories
         D
   I did burn all the books
             Dm
   And I can still hear his laughter
             C                   Em    Em2(11)
   And I can still hear his song
                 Em
   The man's too big
                 D      C
   The man's too strong

C       D/A   / D     C

   Well I have tried to be meek
   And I have tried to be mild
   But I spat like a woman
   And sulked like a child
   I have lived behind walls
   That have made me alone
   Striven for peace
   Which I have never known
   And I can still hear his laughter
   And I can still hear his song
   The man's too big
   The man's too strong

   Well the sun rose on the courtyard
   And they all did hear him say
   'You always were a Judas
   But I got you anyway
   You may have got your silver
   But I swear upon my life
   Your sister gave me diamonds
   And I gave them to your wife'
   Oh father please help me
   For I have done wrong
   The man's too big
   The man's too strong
