Second song. Um written for an acoustic with a an electric lead. Chords are Am, G, F, Am. One chord per line.

Tommy was a man
who was fast to pull a gun
he had to get his girl
and get up on the run
he bummed it down the highway
begging for a ride
hitchhiked down to Boston
looking for a place to hide

Tommy went to 'nam
'cause uncle sammy needed pawns
he sent him on the way
with a band of other fawns
General thrust a gun at him
and said defend the hill
taught him that democracy's
a worthy cause to kill

Tommy and his wife knew
they were followed by a man
who would only be happy
with Tommy dead or in the can
he was getting man cause
he thought that he had lost him
but then he got a lead
so he kicked it down to Boston

The dragon was now in town
and Tommy was lying low
they both knew there was
gonna have to be a show
Tommy knew about some
leads that had been bought
it was only a matter of time
till they would be caught

Tommy was prepared for
another fight for freedom
he'd be locked up
if he didn't beat him
He confronted him
in the middle of the town
before T had a chance
he gunned old Tommy down

Tommy was a man
who was fast to pull a gun
he had to get his girl
and get up on the run
Tommy went to Nam
and they knew that he'd be trouble
they said to keep an eye on him
and then to make it double.

improvements welcomed.

So is the song about Tommy going AWAL and the military coming down to get him? The lyrics are pretty good.

I wanted it to go more in the Tommy was trained to kill when he was young so that was all he knew how to do. But hey its free for interpretation.
