Song Details
Artist(s)Phil Ochs
Album(s)I Ain't Marching Anymore
There and Now: Live in Vancouver
Live at Newport

D G C D
Oh I marched to the battle of New Orleans
G C D
At the end of the early British war
G C
The young land started growing
G
The young blood started flowing
C Am D
But I ain't marchin' anymore
For I've killed my share of Indians
In a thousand different fights
I was there at the Little Big Horn
I heard many men lying
I saw many more dying
But I ain't marchin' anymore
C G
It's always the old to lead us to the war
C Am D
It's always the young to fall
Now look at all we've won with the sabre and the gun
Tell me is it worth it all
For I stole California from the Mexican land
Fought in the bloody Civil War
Yes I even killed my brother
And so many others
And I ain't marchin' anymore
For I marched to the battles of the German trench
In a war that was bound to end all wars
Oh I must have killed a million men
And now they want me back again
But I ain't marchin' anymore
(chorus)
For I flew the final mission in the Japanese sky
Set off the mighty mushroom roar
When I saw the cities burning
I knew that I was learning
That I ain't marchin' anymore
Now the labor leader's screamin' when they close the missile plants,
United Fruit screams at the Cuban shore,
Call it ";Peace"; or call it ";Treason,";
Call it ";Love"; or call it ";Reason,";
But I ain't marchin' any more.
There seems to be a variety of opinions about the chords for this song. Since I am not able to judge which is right, I will simply present all of them.
The first set of chords were provided by Dave Miller:
D G C D

C Am D
But I ain't marchin' anymore
C G

Jeffrey Shallit tells me that these are the correct chords:
D G C C/B D/A
