*The Decemberists* Album: Castaways and Cutouts Song: The Legionnaire's Lament VERSE I Dm F I'm a legionnaire, camel in disrepair, G Bb A hoping for a Frigidaire to come passing by. Dm F I am on reprieve, lacking my joise de vivre, G Bb A missing my gay Paree in this desert dry. Dm F And I wrote my girl, told her I would not G return, I've terribly taken a turn for the Bb A Dm worse now, I fear. It's been a year or more F since they shipped me to this foreign G Bb shore, fighting in a foreign, so far away A from my home. CHORUS F C If only some rain would fall on the house and Gm the boulevards and the sidewalks bagatelles (it's Bb F like a dream). With a roar of cars and the C Gm lolling of the cafe bars and the sweetly sleeping Bb Bbm sweeping of the Seine. Lord, I don't know if I'll Dm F G Bb A ever be back again. La Da Dum Dum La Da Da Dum VERSE II Medicating in the sun with pinch doses of laudanum, longing for the old fecundity of my homeland. Curses to this mirage! A bottle of ancient shiraz! The smattering of distant applause is ringing in my poor ears. On the old left bank, my baby in a charabanc, riding up the width and length of the Champs Elysee. REPEAT CHORUS INTERLUDE Dm F G Bb A REPEAT CHORUS OUTRO Bbm F ... Lord, I don't know if I'll ever be back again, C Gm Bb be back again, be back again, O be back again. F C Gm Bb Bbm Oh oh oh oh oh, la la la la, la la la la, oh oh oh oh F C Gm Bb Bbm Dm
