 CAm
 Heart-carved tree trunk, Yankee bayonet
 CAm
 A sweetheart left behind
 CAm
 Far from the hills of the sea-swelled Carolinas
 CAm
 That's where my true love lies

There is this bit (if you can manage it) during the verse, but NOT during the "hup hup" part

 CAmCAm
 (hup hup hup...)

 CAm
 Look for me when the sun-bright swallow
 CAm
 Sings upon the birch bough high
 CAm
 But you are in the ground with the voles and the weevils
 CAm
 All a'chew upon your bones so dry

Chorus:
A (Major!) C
But when the sun breaks
 ACG
 To no more bulletin battle-cry
 AC
 Then will you make a grave
 AF
 For I will be home then
 G
I will be home then
 F
I will be home then
 G
I will be home then
Then

**Intro**

When I was a girl how the hills of Oconee
Made a seam to hem me in
There at the fair when our eyes caught, careless
Got my heart right pierced by a pin

But oh, did you see all the dead of Manassas
All the bellies and the bones and the bile
Though I lingered here with the blankets barren
And my own belly big with child

Chorus:
But when the sun breaks
To no more bulletin battle-cry
Then will you make a grave
For I will be home then
I will be home then
I will be home then
I will be home then

*The chords are the same here but the timing changes*
 FG
 Stems and bones and stone walls too
Could keep me from you
 FE
 Scaly skin is all too few
 G
 To keep me from you

**Intro**

But oh my love, though our bodies may be parted
Though our skin may not touch skin
Look for me with the sun-bright sparrow
I will come on the breath of the wind

end on Am
