Cold Chisel – Khe Sanh chords


This tab is meant to fill in all the extra little chordy bits that no one else seems to.
It's taken almost solely from the piano part. Happy playing - Nugget.

Em C G C G DI left my heart to the sappers round Khe Sanh
Em C D D6 D7 EbdimAnd I my soul was sold with my cigarettes to the Black market man
Em C I've had the Vietnam cold turkey,
G Cfrom the ocean to the silver city
Am F D D6 D7 EbdimAnd it's only other vets would understand
Em C G C G DAbout the long forgotten dockside guarantees
Em C D D6 D7 EbdimHow there were no V-day heroes in 1973
Em CAnd how we sailed into Sydney harbour,
G CI saw an old friend but I couldn't kiss her
Am D G C G DShe was lined, and I was home to a lucky land
--The rest of the song uses this chord structure-- Remaining Lyrics: And she was like so many more from that time on Their lives were all so empty, till they found their chosen one And their legs were often open But their minds were always closed And their hearts were held in fast suburban chains And the legal pads were yellow, hours long, paypacket lean And the telex writers clattered where the gunships once had been But the car parks made me jumpy And I never stopped the dreams Or the growing need for speed and novacaine So I worked across the country end to end Tried to find a place to settle down, where my mixed up life could mend Held a job on an oil-rig Flying choppers when I could But the nightlife nearly drove me round the bend And I've travelled round the world from year to year And each one found me aimless, one more year the more for wear And I've been back to South East Asia But the answer sure ain't there But I'm drifting north, to check things out again You know the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone Only seven flying hours, and I'll be landing in Hong Kong There ain't nothing like the kisses From a jaded Chinese princess I'm gonna hit some Hong Kong mattress all night long Well the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone Yeah the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone And it's really got me worried I'm goin' nowhere and I'm in a hurry And the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone Outro Chords - G C G C G
