Notice that the album version they use a capo in the first fret. 
When it's played live, they don't use it.



D                    G      D     D  G D
Louis was my dearest friend
D                     G      D     D   Am D
Fighting in the anzac trench.
Em                G
Louis ran forward from the line,
D                   G     D    D  G D
And i never saw him again.
D            G   D    D G D
Later in the dark
D                        G     D    D Am D
I thought i heard louis' voice
Em               G
Calling for his mother, then me,
D                     G  D
But i couldn't get to him.
D  G  D (x3)

Em                    G   Em    Em  G Em
He's still up on that hill.
G                  Am G   G Am G
  20 years on that hill.
Em                   G       Am     Em   G  Em
 Nothing more than a pile of bones,
G                   Am  G   G Am
 But i think of him still.
D                  G   D   D G D
If i was asked i'd tell
D                            G   D    D  Am  G
The colour of the earth that day;
Em               G
It was dull, and browny-red,
D                         G   D   D G D
"the colour of blood" i'd say
Em G Em  (x2)
G Am G (x2)
Em G Em (x2)
G Am G 
G Am G    D
