                There was a typo in the last post. The F's should be E's.
Thanks to Akira Nakahara for mentioning that.

Here the corrected Version

    Children's Crusade (Sting, The Dream of the Blue Turtles)
	~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 F#m
 Bm            G         A             E
 Young men and soldiers, nineteen fourteen.
 Bm               G         A             C
 Marching through countries they'd  never seen
 Bm           G         A           E
 Virgins with rifles, a game of charades
 C         Bm7            A      C      A     C
 All for a children's crusade

[same chords]
 Pawns in the game are not victims of chance
 Strewn on the fields of Belgium and France
 Poppies for young men, death's bitter trade
 C            Bm7           A 
 All of those young lives betrayed


 Chorus:
     C           G             C        G
 The children of England would never be slaves
          C             Bm       Em       Bb13
 They're trapped on the wire and dying in waves 
     C         G            C           G
 The Flower of England face down in the mud
     C              Bm         Em         Bb13    
 And stained in the blood of a whole generation


[chords like verse 1]
 Corpulent generals safe behind lines
 History's lessons drowned in red wine
 Poppies for young men, death's bitter trade
 All of those young lives betrayed
 C         Bm7            Em
 All for a children's crusade

 During solo: Em Bm7

 Repeat Chorus

[chords like verse 3]
 Midnight in Soho nineteen eighty-four
 Fixing in door ways, opium slaves
 Poppies for young men, death's bitter trade
 All of those young lives betrayed 
 All for a children's crusade.

Bb13=6x678x, could be Ebmaj7/Bb=x11333 as well.
