Chords/Lyrics
I saw this song on the web site but was confused by my inability to play along with the "Chicks".
I watched the video and jotted this down. It's a pretty simple and it works for me. This is my
first contribution so I hope someone finds it useful. Peace. Vrolyk.

CAPPO ON 2nd FRET
Intro: G Cadd9
  [G]Two days past eighteen
[G]He was waiting for the bus in his army greens
Sat dow[Cadd9]n in a booth in a cafe there
[G]Gave his order to a girl with a bow in her hair
[G]He's a little shy so she gave him a smile
[G]So he said would you mind sitting down for a while
And talk[Cadd9]ing to me
I'm feeling a little low[G]
She said I'm off in an[F] hour
CÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊG
And I know where we can go
[G]So they went down and they sat on the pier
[G]He said I bet you got a boyfriend but I don't care
I g[Cadd9]ot no one to send a letter to[G]
FÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊCÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊGÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ
Would you mind if I sent one back here to you
[Em]I cried ne[C]ver gonna hold the hand of another guy
[G]Too young for him they told her
  [D]Waiting for the love of the travellin' soldier
[Em]My love will never end
  [C]Waiting for the soldier to come back again
[G]Never more to be alone when the letter says[D]
My soldiers coming home[G]
[G]The letters came from an army camp
In California and Viet Nam
He tol[Cadd9]d her of his heart and it might be love
And of a[G]ll the things he was so scared of
[G]He said when it's getting kinda tough over here
[G]I think of that day sitting down at the pier
And I clos[Cadd9]e my eyes and see your pretty smile[G]
Don't worr[F]y but
I won't be able to [C]write for awhile[G]
[Em]I cried ne[C]ver gonna hold the hand of another guy
[G]Too young for him they told her
  [D]Waiting for the love of the travellin soldier
[Em]My love will never end
  [C]Waiting for the soldier to come back again
[G]Never more to be alone when the letter says[D]
My soldiers coming home[G]
SOLO
  [G]One Friday night at a football game
[G]The lords prayer said and the anthem sang
The man [Cadd9]said
Folks would you bow your head
For the list[G] of local Viet Name dead
[G]Crying all alone under the stands
[G]Was the picolo player in the marching band
Ê
And one n[Cadd9]ame read nobody really cared[G]
But a pre[F]tty little girl with a bow in her hair[C] [G]
[Em]I cried ne[C]ver gonna hold the hand of another guy
[G]Too young for him they told her
  [D]Waiting for the love of the travellin soldier
[Em]My love will never end
  [C]Waiting for the soldier to come back again
[G]Never more to be alone when the letter says[D]
My soldiers coming home[G]
