Dixie Chicks – Travelin Soldier chords ver. 2

Capo on the seventh fret

DTwo days past eighteen
He was waitin' for the bus in his army greens
GSat down in a booth at a cafe there
DGave 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
G DAnd talkin' to me I'm feelin' a little low
Em G DShe said I'm off in an hour and I know where we can go
DSo they went down and they sat on the pier
He said I bet you got a boyfriend but I don't care
G DI've got no one to send a letter to
Em G DWould you mind if I sent one back here to you?
EmI cried
GNever gonna hold the hand of another guy
DToo young for him they told her
A Waitin' for the love of the travelin' soldier
GOur love will never end
Waitin' for the soldier to come back again
DNever more to be alone
A C ? DWhen the letter says a soldier's coming home
So the letters came From an army camp In California then Vietnam And he told his heart It might be love And 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 And close my eyes and see your pretty smile Now don't worry but I won't be able to write for a while CHORUS One Friday night at a football game The Lord's Prayer said and the anthem sang A man said folks would you bow your heads For the list of local Vietnam dead Cryin' all alone under the stands Was the piccolo player in the marching band And one name read and no one really cared But a pretty little girl with a bow in her hair CHORUS
