She's Got Medals by David Bowie (From "London Boy" and many other
compilations of his pre-"Space Oddity" days) 

F  C  G  D  A
      F                C              G          D             A
She'd walk through the door and she'd set up the drinks on the house
             F            C              G               D                    A
She played a good game of darts, and the men slapped her back, never took
her out.
    Bm                F#             Bm                 E       A     E
She wore a trenchcoat garkey(?), her hobnail boots were full of holes.
E     A   E7
She's got medals.

Her mother called her Mary but she changed her name to Tommy, she's a one.
She went and joined the army, passed the medical, don't ask me how it's done.
They sent her to the front line, fighting for her country's name
She's got medals.

    B                 G
She got very tired of picking up girls,
C                     F
Cleaning her gun, and shaving her curls
A#             D#                 C                 F  C  G  D  A         
Then the enemy dropped a bomb, survivors there were none!

F               C                G                 D                  A
People say that when the moon is full and when the stars have gone to bed
        F               C              G                 D           A
You can see a ghost but that's a lie because the naughty woman isn't dead.
      Bm                     F#         Bm                      E       A
E
She deserted on the previous morning, replaced her uniform with dresses silk
and green
E         A      E     E       A      E     E         A       E      E     A
E7
Called herself Eileen, came to London town, now she's settled down.  She's
got medals.
