{title:Sam Stone} {st:John Prine}

[D]Sam Stone came home to the [G]wife and family after ser[A]ving in the [A7]conflict over[D]seas
[D]And the time that he served had [G]shattered all his nerves and [A]left a little [A7]shrapnel in his [D]knee [G] [D]
But the [G]morphine eased the pain and the [G]grass grew around his brain
And [E7]gave him all the confidence he [A]lacked, with a [E7]purple heart and a monkey on his [A]back

{soc:}
There's a [D]hole in daddy's arm where all the [Em7]money goes
[G]And Jesus Christ died for nothing [A]I suppose Little [D]pictures have big ears, don't [Bm]stop to count the years
[E7]Sweet songs never last too long on [A]broken radios hmm [A7]hmm hmm
{eoc:}

Sam [D]Stone's welcome home didn't [G]last too long, he [A]went to work when he'd [A7]spent his last [D]dime
And [D]Sammy took to stealing when he [G]got that empty feeling for a [A]hundred dollar [A7]habit without over[D]time
And the [G]gold rolled through his veins like a [G]thousand railroad trains
And [E7]eased his mind in the hours that he [A]chose while the [E7]kids ran around wearing other peoples [A]clothes

{c: Chorus}

Sam [D]Stone was alone when he [G]popped his last balloon [A]climbing walls while [A7]sitting in a [D]chair
Well he [D]played his last request while the [G]room smelled just like death with an [A]overdose [A7]hovering in the [D]air
But [G]life had lost its' fun and there was [G]nothing to be done
But [E7]trade his house that he bought on a GI [A]bill for a [E7]flag draped casket on a local heroes [A]hill

{c: Chorus}

Sam Stone
(John Prine)


Sam Stone came home to his wife and family
After serving in the conflict overseas
And the time that he served had shattered all his nerves
And left a little shrapnel in his knees
But the morphine eased the pain
And the grass grew 'round his brain
And gave him all the confidence he lacked
With a purple heart and a monkey on his back


Chorus:
There'e a hole in daddy's arm where all the money goes
Jesus Christ died for nothin' I suppose
Little pitchers have big ears
Don't stop to count the years
Sweet things never last too long on broken radios, uhm...


Sam Stone's welcome home didn't last too long
He went to work when he'd spent his last dime
And soon he took to stealing when he got that empty feeling
For a hundred dollar habit without overtime
And the gold rolled through his veins
Like a thousand railroad trains
And eased his mind in the hours that he chose
While the kids ran around wearin' other peoples clothes


Chorus


Sam Stone was alone when he popped his last balloon
Climbing walls while sitting in a chair
Well, he playes his last request while the room smelled just like death
With an overdose hovering in the air
But life had lost it's fun
There was nothing to be done
But to trade his house that he bought on the GI bill
For a flag-draped casket on a local heroe's hill


Chorus

In the time it takes to find and format an answer, someone else finds and formats it and posts it! Isn't the speed of the internet a marvel!
