Dixie Chicks - Travelin Soldier chords version 1

My first tab :) Enjoy

Cadd9: either x32030 or 335533

GTwo days past 18
He was waitin' for the bus in his army greens
Cadd9Sat down in a booth at a cafe there
GGave his order to the girl with a bow in her hair
He's a little shy so she gave him a smile So he said would you mind sittin' down for a while
Cadd9 GAnd talkin' to me I'm feelin' a little low
A CShe said I'm off in an hour and I know where we can go
GSo they went down and they sat on the pier
He said I bet you got a boyfriend but I don't care
Cadd9 G I've got no one to send a letter to
A CWould you mind if I sent one back here to you?
EmI cried
C GNever gonna hold the hand of another guy
Too young for him they told her
D Waitin' for the love of the travelin' soldier
EmOur love will never end
C GWaitin' for the soldier to come back again
Never more to be alone
D GWhen the letter says a soldier's coming home
GSo the letters came from an army camp
In California then Vietnam
Cadd9And he told his heart
It might be love
GAnd all of the things he was so scared of
Said when it's gettin kinda rough over here I think about that day sittin' down at the pier
Cadd9 G And close my eyes and see your pretty smile
A C GNow don't worry but I won't be able to write for a while
CHORUS G [strum once then mute] One Friday night at a football game
GThe Lord's Prayer said and the anthem sang
Cadd9 GA man said folks would you bow your heads
[don't strum] [pause] For the list of local Vietnam dead
G Cryin' all alone under the stands
Was the piccolo player in the marching band
Cadd9 GAnd none name read, nobody really cared
A CBut a pretty little girl with a bow in her hair
CHORUS [twice]
