Scorn of the Women Ė Weddings, Parties, Anything
    G                        D                                       
I remember respectfully like others before me
All those folk who fell in the war
    G                        D                                        
And I hear you singing songs of lamentation
      A                          D                                    
But I donít wish to hear them no more
A                                               G                     A
What did you do in the time of the war? Itís a question asked by everyone
   G                       D                    A                     D 
I stood in a line my screwdriver in hand making aircraft out at Laverton
            G                        D
   So donít sing no songs about Waltzing Matilda
         A         G            A         G                                
   Donít tell me I tried, donít tell me I failed
       G                   D                                             
   For all I recall is the scorn of the women
         A                                    D                          
   And a white feather that I received in the mail
    G                     D                                       
I remember the day I went down to enlist
And they said ďRead this chart on the wallĒ
     G                     D                                         
I remember the tone of the voice of the doctor
      A                                                       D       
As he said to me: ďThat will be all. Thank you very muchĒ
 A                                      G                      A       
Riding home slowly I sat on my tram not sure if to laugh or to cry
       G                           D                                  
For to train in the camps, sure, a man needs his lamps
      A                              D                                
And a good soldier he must have good eyes
        G                          D                               
Well it takes more than bullets to murder and maim
Whether worn down or beaten a deathís still a death
        G                           D                                 
And you know sometimes when I think back to the forties
  A                     D                                            
I pray for my very last breath
You know I have nothing against those who fought
        G                           A                                 
But for Christís sake we do what we can
            G                          D                              
And thereís more than one way that you can skin a cat
            A                                   D                     
And thereís more than one way you can cripple a man
