A great cover from Quo. I'm not quite sure about the Amb6 that the lead guitar plays in 
intro, but that's what it looks like Francis is playing on a live performance that I 
If it doesn't sound right to you, then just play and A5 in its place.
Enjoy playing this and Merry Christmas! =)

Dm
A vacation in a foreign land

Uncle Sam does the best he can
              Gm
You're in the army now
                      Dm
Oh, oh, you're in the army now

Dm
Now you remember what the draftsman said

Nothing to do all day but stay in bed
              Gm
You're in the army now
                      Dm
Oh, oh, you're in the army now

Dm
You'll be the hero of the neighborhood

Nobody knows that you've left for good
              Gm
You're in the army now
Am                     Dm
Oh, oh, you're in the army now

Dm
Smiling faces as you wave to land

But once you get there no one gives a damn
              Gm
You're in the army now
Am                    Dm
Oh, oh, you're in the army now

[intro again]

Dm                                 (STOP)
Hand grenades flying over your head

[Key change - up a whole tone]

Em
Missiles flying over your head

If you wanna survive get out of bed
              Am
You're in the army now
Bm                    Am
Oh, oh, you're in the army now

Em
Shots ring out in the dead of night
                  (STOP)
The sergeant calls "Stand up and fight!"
              Am
You're in the army now
Bm                    Am
Oh, oh, you're in the army now

Em
You've got your orders better shoot on sight
Em
Your finger's on the trigger but it don't seem right
              Am
You're in the army now
Bm                    Em
Oh, oh, you're in the army now
              Am
You're in the army now
Bm                    Em
Oh, oh, you're in the army now

Em
Night is falling and you just can't see

Is this illusion or reality?
              Am
You're in the army now
Bm                    Em
Oh, oh, you're in the army now
              Am
You're in the army now
Bm                    Em
Oh, oh, you're in the army now
