1st Verse:

Em                          Am
   I fought in a war and I left my friends behind me

      C                             B	
To go looking for the enemy, and it wasnt very long

Em                           Am	
   Before I would stand with another boy in front of me
						
       C                                      B
And a corpse that just fell into me, with the bullets flying round...


1st chorus:

       Em                               Am
And I reminded myself of the words you said when we were getting on

      C                                        B
And I bet youre making shells back home for a steady boy to wear

           Em                                 Am
Round his neck, well it wont hurt to think of you as if youre waiting for

      C                           B
This letter to arrive because Ill be here quite a while


In the second part you may just use any regular strumming
like down,down,up,up,down,up


2nd verse:

Em                          Am
   I fought in a war and I left my friends behind me

       C                             B	
To go looking for the enemy, and it wasnt very long

Em                              Am	
   Before I found out that the sickness there ahead of me

       C                              B		
Went beyond the bedsit infamy of the decade gone before


2nd chorus:	

        Em                              Am	
And I reminded myself of the words you said when we were getting on

      C                                        B 	
And I bet youre making shells back home for a steady man to wear

           Em                                 Am
Round his neck, well it wont hurt to think of you as if youre waiting for

This letter to arrive because Ill be here quite a while

3rd Verse:

Em                           Am	
   I fought in a war, and I didnt know where it would end

      C                               B
It stretched before me infinitely, I couldnt really think

Em                                  Am	
   Of the day beyond now, keep your head down pal

                      C
Theres trouble plenty in this hour, this day

           B
I can see hope I can see light

And I bet youre making shells back home for a steady man to wear

           Em                                 Am	
Round his neck, well it wont hurt to think of you as if youre waiting for
