Soldiers James Taylor
It was [D]just after su[C]n-rise and [G]down by the [A]sea
[Em]down on the [Bm]sand flats where [G]nothing will [A]grow
come [D]drumming and [C]footsteps like [G]out of a [A]dream
where the [Em]golden green [Bm]waters come i[A]n.[-]
Just [D]nine lucky [C]soldiers had [G]come through the [A]night
[Em]half of them [Bm]wounded and [G]barely ali[A]ve
Just [D]nine out of t[C]wenty was a-[G]headed for [A]home
with [Em]eleven sad st[Bm]ories to t[C]el[G]l.[A] [-]
I re[C]member quite [G]clearly when I [Em]got out of [Bm]bed
C G Em A G A.
I said, "Oh, good morning. What a beautiful day."
