Hans Poulsen – Boom Sha La La Lo

A great 'anti-war' song cleverly disguised as a simple 'children's song'.  Made #1 for 2
weeks in the Adelaide chart, #5 Australian chart, 1970. This is my version... it seems
pretty close to the recorded version, although Hans uses a banjo for parts of the intro 
and outro..  The clip below shows Hans singing the song on tv... he has a capo on the
second fret... so any improvements on my version most welcome!!

Intro:
G  C  G  C
 
     G             /                 C             D
In a dreamy little country there's a sleepy Sunday school
             C                D             C             D
Where the school mam Anna- bella teaches sleepy golden rules
           G                  /         C                     D
But the children were all waiting to hear the church bells ring
     C                  D            C                      D
They had their own re - li -gion and all they had to do was sing it to the world.

G                      C     G                 C
Boom - sha - la - la - lo    they will sing to you
G                      C                    D     Dsus4
Boom - sha - la - la - lo    la - la - la - la -  la la la la
G                      C     G                 C
Boom - sha - la - la - lo    they will sing to you
G                      C                     D    Dsus4
Boom - sha - la - la - lo    la - la - la - la -  la la la la

  G                 /              C                 D
I sing this song of love to you so war might pass behind
    C                    D               C                D
And guns and planes and army trains left rusting in their lines
    G                 /                C            D
And all the world is waiting, for this very special day
     C                D                   C               D
When all the children will join hands and gladly show the way, singing
 
G                      C     G                 C
Boom - sha - la - la - lo    they will sing to you
G                      C                    D      Dsus4
Boom - sha - la - la - lo    la - la - la - la -   la la la la


G                   C      D                      G
Dumphie dumphie all day    throw your cannons a - way
G                   C        D          Dsus4
Dumphie dumphie all day  all day –ay   –ay -ay

G                      C     G                 C
Boom - sha - la - la - lo    they will sing to you
G                      C                    D     Dsus4
Boom - sha - la - la - lo    la - la - la - la -  la la la la
