This Song for You  Chris de Burgh

Hello darling, t[D]hi[B7]s is the army,
[Em]I've just got the time to write,
[A]Today we attack, there's no turning back,
[D]Th[G]e [D]bo[A]ys they're all ready for the fight,
[D]Ye[B7]s, I'm well but this place is like hell,
[Em]They call it Passchendaele,
[A]In nineteen seventeen the war must be ending,
[D]Th[G]e [D]General said this attack will not fail,
[G]So[F#] I'm writing down this simple little melody
[Bm]Whe[F#m]n yo[Em]u p[F#]lay it my love, think of me...
[Em]We'[D]ll[A] b[D]e [Em]together in this song for you,
[A]An[D]d [B7]it [Em]goe[A]s [D]La[G] l[D]a la...
[A]Si[D]ng[B7] it[Em] da[A]rl[D]in[G]g,[D] L[A]a la la...
[D]Th[B7]ey got old Bill and the Sergeant is still out there,
[Em]Wounded in some shellhole,
[A]They say this war will end all wars,
[D]Oh[G] G[D]od[A] I really hope it will,
[D]Oh[B7] how's old England, are they still singing
[Em]Those songs that we loved to sing,
[A]When all this is over, we'll go sailing in Dover,
[D]Ca[G]tc[D]hing fish like we used to with a string,
[G]Oh[F#] I miss you, I miss you, I miss you so!
[Bm]If [F#m]they[Em] ge[F#]t me my love you will know...
[Em]We'[D]ll[A] a[D]lw[Em]ays be together in this song for you...
[A]An[D]d [B7]it [Em]goe[A]s [D]La[G] l[D]a la...
[A]I [D]ha[B7]ve [Em]to [A]go[D] n[G]ow[D]..[A]. [D] [B7] [Em] [A] [D] [G] [D] [A] [D] [B7] [Em] [A] [D] [G] [D] [A]
