Army Dreamers  Kate Bush


[Bm]    [Em]    [F#m]                             

[Bm]Our little army [Em]boy
Is [F#m]coming home from b.f.p.o.
[Bm]Ive a bunch of purple [Em]flowers
To [F#m]decorate a mammys hero.
[Bm]Mourning in the aero[Em]drome,
The [F#m]weather warmer, he is colder.
[Bm]Four men in uni[Em]form
To [F#m]carry home my little soldier.
[Bm]What could he do?
[E]Should have been a rock [D]star.
But he didnt [F#]have the money for a [Bm]guitar
[Bm]What could he do?
[E]Should have been a poli[D]tician.
But he never [F#]had a proper edu[Bm]cation.
[Bm]What could he do?
[E]Should have been a fa[D]ther.
But he never [F#]even made it to his [Bm]twenties.
What a [D]waste --
[G]Army [Bm]dreamers.
[G]Ooh, what a waste of[D6add9]
[G]Army dre[Bm]amers.   [G]
-> (chords as first verse) <-
Tears oer a tin box.
Oh, jesus christ, he wasnt to know,
Like a chicken with a fox,
He couldnt win the war with ego.

Give the kid the pick of pips,
And give him all your stripes and ribbons.
Now hes sitting in his hole,
He might as well have buttons and bows.

-> Chorus (as first) (ends on -224422-) <-


Of course, if you want it to sound like the real thing, you will have to handpick the
but it is not too hard to figure out.

Also, the part after the second chorus is the same as verse, and when she repeats "Army
at the end of the second chorus, repeat G and Bm, and end on 224422.

The song goes on after the second chorus, but the chords are the same as in the verses.

Please leave constructive criticism, I am open to any modifications.
