I Fought In A War

Belle and Sebastian

 A7
I fought in a war and I left my friends behind me
 CB7
To go looking for the enemy, and it wasn't very long
 EmA7
 Before I would stand with another boy in front of me
 CB7D
And a corpse that just fell into me, with bullets flying around 
 GA7
And I reminded myself of the words you said when we were getting on
 CB7
And I bet you're making shells back home for a steady boy to wear
 GA7
Round his neck, well it won't hurt to think of you as if you're waiting
 CB7
For this letter to arrive, you will be hear quite a while
 EmA7
 I fought in a war and I left my friends behind me
 CB7
To go looking for the enemy, and it wasn't very long
 EmA7
 Before I found out that the sickness there ahead of me
 CB7
Went beyond the bedsit infamy, of the decade gone before
 GA7
And I reminded myself of the words you said when we were getting on
 CB7
And I bet you're making shells back home for a steady boy to wear
 GA7
Round his neck, well it won't hurt to think of you as if you're waiting
 CB7
For this letter to arrive, you will be hear quite a while
Break: Em, A7, C, B7 x2
 EmA7
 I fought in a war, and I didn't know when it would end
 CB7
It stretched before me infinitly, I really couldn't think
 EmA7
 Of the day beyond now, keep your head down pal
 CB7
Theres trouble plenty in this hour, this day, I can see hope I can see the
light
 GA7
And I reminded myself of the words you said when we were getting on
 CB7
And I bet you're making shells back home for a steady boy to wear
 GA7
Round his neck, well it won't hurt to think of you as if you're waiting
 CB7
For this letter to arrive, you will be hear quite a while.
End with Em, A7, C, B7
