Thread Name: Tune Req: Mothers Daughters Wives
Subject: RE: Tune Req: Mothers Daughters Wives
The (G) first time it was (G) fathers, the (G) last time it was (D) sons,
And (G) in between your (G) husbands marched a(C)way with drums and (D) guns,
And you (G) never thought to (G)question, you just (C) went on with your (G) lives,
'Cause (Am) all they ever taught (Am) you who to be was (C) mothers, daughters, (D) wives.

Note that the last line doesn't resolve back to G, it just hangs there on D. I like it when that D is just left hanging in the air at the end of the song, but most folks, including Judy Small, add a tag line that gets you back to G.
(D)and you believed (G) them.
