Cadd9: either x32030 or 335533

Two days past 18
He was waitin' for the bus in his army greens
Sat down in a booth at a cafe there
Gave his order to the girl with a bow in her hair
He's a little shy so she gave him a smile
So he said would you mind sittin' down for a while
	Cadd9			      G
And talkin' to me I'm feelin' a little low
	     A			  C
She said I'm off in an hour and I know where we can go
So they went down and they sat on the pier
He said I bet you got a boyfriend but I don't care
   Cadd9                         G  
I've got no one to send a letter to
          A                C
Would you mind if I sent one back here to you?

I cried
C                                   G
Never gonna hold the hand of another guy

Too young for him they told her
Waitin' for the love of the travelin' soldier
Our love will never end
C                                      G
Waitin' for the soldier to come back again

Never more to be alone
        D			      G
When the letter says a soldier's coming home

So the letters came from an army camp
In California then Vietnam
And he told his heart
It might be love
And all of the things he was so scared of
Said when it's gettin kinda rough over here
I think about that day sittin' down at the pier
  Cadd9                            G       
And close my eyes and see your pretty smile
          A                     C                     G
Now don't worry but I won't be able to write for a while

     G [strum once then mute]
One Friday night at a football game
The Lord's Prayer said and the anthem sang
      Cadd9                  G
A man said folks would you bow your heads
                 [don't strum]       [pause]
For the list of local Vietnam dead
Cryin' all alone under the stands

Was the piccolo player in the marching band
    Cadd9                          G
And none name read, nobody really cared
       A                 C
But a pretty little girl with a bow in her hair

CHORUS [twice]
