CAPO ON 2nd FRET
 
Intro: G  Cadd9 
 
G
Two days past eighteen
G
He was waiting for the bus in his army greens
       Cadd9
Sat down in a booth in a cafe there
G
Gave his order to a girl with a bow in her hair
G
He's a little shy so she gave him a smile
G
So he said would you mind sitting down for a while
        Cadd9
And talking to me
                                G
I'm feeling a little low
                      F
She said I'm off in an hour
        CΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚG
And I know where we can go
G
So they went down and they sat on the pier
G
He said I bet you got a boyfriend but I don't care
   Cadd9                                     G
I got no one to send a letter to
FΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚCΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚGΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚΚ
Would you mind if I sent one back here to you
Em        C
I cried never gonna hold the hand of another guy
G
Too young for him they told her
 
D
Waiting for the love of the travellin' soldier
Em
My love will never end
 
C
Waiting for the soldier to come back again
G                                                          D
Never more to be alone when the letter says
                                    G
My soldiers coming home
G
The letters came from an army camp
 
In California and Viet Nam
      Cadd9
He told her of his heart and it might be love
        G
And of all the things he was so scared of
G
He said when it's getting kinda tough over here
G
I think of that day sitting down at the pier
          Cadd9                                                   G
And I close my eyes and see your pretty smile
          F
Don't worry but
                   C                           G
I won't be able to write for awhile
Em        C
I cried never gonna hold the hand of another guy
G
Too young for him they told her
 
D
Waiting for the love of the travellin soldier
Em
My love will never end
 
C
Waiting for the soldier to come back again
G                                                          D
Never more to be alone when the letter says
                                    G
My soldiers coming home
SOLO
 
G
One Friday night at a football game
G
The lords prayer said and the anthem sang
        Cadd9
The man said
 
Folks would you bow your head
            G
For the list of local Viet Name dead
G
Crying all alone under the stands
G
Was the picolo player in the marching band
 Κ
         Cadd9                                            G
And one name read nobody really cared
         F                                      C                  G
But a pretty little girl with a bow in her hair
Em        C
I cried never gonna hold the hand of another guy
G
Too young for him they told her
 
D
Waiting for the love of the travellin soldier
Em
My love will never end
 
C
Waiting for the soldier to come back again
G                                                          D
Never more to be alone when the letter says
                                    G
My soldiers coming home
