Goodnight Saigon chords
Billy Joel *

F  Dm  Bb  G
C Dm Dm7 CWe met as soul mates on Parris Island,
Dm Dm7 Cwe left as inmates from an asylum.
Em Am Em AmAnd we were sharp, as sharp as knives
Dm C G C Gand we were so gung-ho to lay down our lives.
C Dm Dm7 CWe came in spastic like tameless horses,
Dm Dm7 Cwe left in plastic as numbered corpses.
Em Am Em AmAnd we learned fast to travel light,
Dm C Bb G Dm G our arms were heavy but our bellies were tight.
C Dm Dm7 CWe had no home front, we had no soft soap.
Dm Dm7 CThey sent us Playboy, they gave us Bob Hope.
Em Am Em AmWe dug in deep and shot on sight
Dm F G C Gand prayed to Jesus Christ with all of our might.
C Dm Dm7 CWe had no cameras to shoot the landscape
Dm Dm7 Cwe passed the hash pipe and played our Doors tapes.
Em Am Em AmAnd it was dark, so dark at night
Dm Fand we held on to each other, like brother to brother,
Bb F Gwe promised our mothers we'd write.
F Bb C C7And we would all go down together,
F Bb C C7we said we'd all go down together,
F Bb G F Dm Cyes, we would all go down together.
C Dm Dm7 CRemember Charlie, remember Baker,
Dm Dm7 Cthey left their childhood on every acre.
Em Am Em AmAnd who was wrong? And who was right?
Dm C Bb GIt didn't matter in the thick of the fight.
Am Em C Dm E Dm EWe held the day in the palm of our hand.
Am Em C Dm E Dm CThey ruled the night and the night seemed to last
Em Dm Dm7 Cas long as six weeks on Parris Island.
Dm Dm7 CWe held the coastline, they held the highlands,
Em Am Em Amand they were sharp, as sharp as knives,
Dm Fthey heard the hum of motors, they counted the rotors
Bb Dm7 Gand waited for us to arrive.
F Bb C C7And we would all go down together,
F Bb C C7we said we'd all go down together,
F Bb G F Dm Bbyes, we would all go down together.
