 D               B7
Hello darling, this is the army,
      Em
I've just got the time to write,
   A
Today we attack, there's no turning back,
     D                G             D    A
The boys they're all ready for the fight,

 D                       B7
Yes, I'm well but this place is like hell,
      Em
They call it Passchendaele,
    A
In nineteen seventeen the war must be ending,
             D           G             D
The General said this attack will not fail,

         G                              F#
So I'm writing down this simple little melody
           Bm        F#m            Em F#
When you play it my love, think of me...
            Em             D    A   D  Em
We'll be together in this song for you,
    A       D       B7 Em A D G D 
And it goes La la la... 
 A               D       B7 Em A D G D A
Sing it darling, La la la...

      D                    B7
They got old Bill and the Sergeant is still out there,
 Em
Wounded in some shellhole,
      A
They say this war will end all wars,
    D            G       D   A
Oh God I really hope it will,
    
    D                 B7
Oh how's old England, are they still singing
       Em
Those songs that we loved to sing,
     A
When all this is over, we'll go sailing in Dover,
          D           G                 D 
Catching fish like we used to with a string,

      G                       F#
Oh I miss you, I miss you, I miss you so!
         Bm        F#m            Em F#
If they get me my love you will know...
                   Em             D    A   D  Em
We'll always be together in this song for you...
    A       D       B7 Em A D G D 
And it goes La la la... 
   A             D B7 Em A D G D A  D B7 Em A D G D A  D B7 Em A D G D A
I have to go now...
