Billy Don't Be A Hero--Bo Donaldson and the Heywoods

Am DThe marchin' band came down along main street
G The soldier blues fell in behind
Am DI looked across and there I saw Billy
Em GWaiting to go and join the line
Am DAnd with her head upon his shoulder
Am DHis young and lovely fiancee
Am DFrom where I stood I saw she was cryin'
Am DAnd through her tears I heard her say
G AmBilly, don't be a hero, don't be a fool with your life
Am7 GBilly, don't be a hero, come back and make me your wife
G G7And as he started to go,
Am CmShe said Billy keep your head low
G D GBilly, don't be hero, come back to me.
Am DThe soldier blues were trapped on a hillside
GThe battle raging all around
Am DThe sergeant cried, We've got to hang on boys!"
Em GWe've got to hold this piece of ground
Am DI need a volunteer to ride up,
Am DAnd bring us back some extra men,
Am DAnd Billy's hand was up in a moment
Am D D7Forgettin' all the words she said...she said
CHORUS
Am DI heard his fiancee got a letter
GThat told how Billy died that day
Am DThe letter said that he was a hero
Em GShe should be proud he died that way
Em D GI heard she threw the letter away
