I Fought In A War  Belle and Sebastian

I fought in a war and I [A7]left my friends behind me
To go [C]looking for the enemy, and it [B7]wasn't very long
[Em]Before I would stand with a[A7]nother boy in front of me
And a [C]corpse that just fell into me, with [B7]bullets flying around[D]
And I re[G]minded myself of the words you said when we were [A7]getting on
And I [C]bet you're making shells back home for a [B7]steady boy to wear
Round his [G]neck, well it won't hurt to think of [A7]you as if you're waiting
For this letter to[C] arrive, you will be hear [B7]quite a while
[Em]I fought in a war and I [A7]left my friends behind me
To go [C]looking for the enemy, and it w[B7]asn't very long
[Em]Before I found out that the [A7]sickness there ahead of me
Went [C]beyond the bedsit infamy, of the [B7]decade gone before
And I re[G]minded myself of the words you said when we were [A7]getting on
And I [C]bet you're making shells back home for a [B7]steady boy to wear
Round his [G]neck, well it won't hurt to think of [A7]you as if you're waiting
For this letter to[C] arrive, you will be hear [B7]quite a while
Break: Em, A7, C, B7 x2
[Em]I fought in a war, and I [A7]didn't know when it would end
It [C]stretched before me infinitly, I [B7]really couldn't think
[Em]Of the day beyond now, keep your [A7]head down pal
Theres trouble [C]plenty in this hour, this day, I can see [B7]hope I can see the
light
And I re[G]minded myself of the words you said when we were [A7]getting on
And I [C]bet you're making shells back home for a [B7]steady boy to wear
Round his [G]neck, well it won't hurt to think of [A7]you as if you're waiting
For this letter to[C] arrive, you will be hear [B7]quite a while.
End with Em, A7, C, B7
