Masters of War

Bob Dylan/the Freewheelin' Bob Dylan (1963)

Capo III - dropped D [DAdgbe']
Come you masters of war - You that build the big guns;
Cadd2 Dm
You that build the death planes - You that build all the bombs;
You that hide behind walls - You that hide behind desks. 
Cadd2 Dm
I just want you to know - I can see through your masks!
You that never done nothin' - But build to destroy. 
You play with my world - Like it's your little toy. 
You put a gun in my hand - And you hide from my eyes. 
And you turn and run farther - When the fast bullets fly. 
Like Judas of old - You lie and deceive. 
A world war can be won - You want me to believe. 
But I see through your eyes - And I see through your brain. 
Like I see through the water - That runs down my drain. 
You fasten the triggers - For the others to fire. 
Then you set back and watch - When the death count gets higher. 
You hide in your mansion - As young people's blood 
Flows out of their bodies - And is buried in the mud. 
You've thrown the worst fear - That can ever be hurled: 
Fear to bring children - Into the world; 
For threatening my baby - Unborn and unnamed! 
Dm/f Cadd2 Dm
You ain't worth the blood - That runs in your veins!
How much do I know - To talk out of turn. 
You might say that I'm young - You might say I'm unlearned. 
But there's one thing I know - Though I'm younger than you: 
Cadd2 G/B Dm
Even Jesus would never - Forgive what you do!
Let me ask you one question - Is your money that good? 
Will it buy you forgiveness - Do you think that it could? 
I think you will find - When your death takes its toll: 
All the money you made - Will never buy back your soul! 
And I hope that you die - And your death'll come soon; 
I will follow your casket - In the pale afternoon. 
And I'll watch while you're lowered - Down to your deathbed; 
Dm/f Cadd2 Dm
And I'll stand o'er your grave - 'Til I'm sure that you're dead
